When The Going Gets Tough, The Tough Get Super Duper Petty

Common wisdom says that when we’re wronged we should take the high road and not fight back.

That’s a pretty great ideal to hold ourselves to, but let’s be honest. It’s not always possible. Sometimes our pettiest impulses take hold and we just can’t help ourselves. For those special times in life, Reddit has a place that hold all those incredible stories: Petty Revenge.
