Today the topic we’re covering was brought up by Redditor ThatBoyMonteezy who asked, “What was the best ‘karma is a bitch’ moment you have witnessed?”
Obviously there are few things in life we like more than when karma rears its spiteful head so this was a genius move in asking this question.
Get ready to feel really good in the name of justice served up right…
I’m from San Diego and during the summer, you have to a claim bonfire pits on the beach really in the morning if you want it for that night. So my friends and I got to the beach at 8am and stayed there so we can get a bonfire going into the night.
Just before sundown, this one couple asked if they could share the bonfire with us and since our group wasn’t too big, we decided to share it with them. However that couple proceeded to bring a group of like 15 others and they literally surrounded the pit and pushed us out. We were pissed but we were so tired from being at the beach all day so we decided to head out.
Little did we know what that night had an extreme high tide warning and when we moved all of our stuff over the wall that divided the beachwalk with the beach, a huge wave came in and washed out that whole group surrounded by our bonfire. The wave flipped over their table of food, took a handful of sandals back into the ocean, and destroyed all their stuff.
The best part was this one girl was trying to jump the wall to save herself but she didnt jump high enough and ended up falling right back into the waters. Karma’s a bitch. ~ 5hunned
I was running laps on a grass field in the military when I was about to lap a guy who’d ALWAYS lap the shit out of me. So as I passed him I yelled “Gotcha, bitch!” and immediately stepped in a hole in the ground and twisted my ankle. Despite the pain of jacking my ankle up, I thought the karmic payout was hilariously timed. ~ theresidentjunkie
Driving to Chicago and a crazy guy is road raging swerving erratically while yelling about shooting us. He zooms off.
5 or so miles later we see his van upside-down in the ditch. He’s standing on the shoulder talking to a cop. ~ Pastafarian75
My old manager was a monster. Belittled people, made a hostile environment, denied anything that would make coworkers happy while giving himself every comfort, even denied me a half day to go to my mothers funeral, adding, “Would it be a big deal if you couldn’t go?” He finally stepped on his dick after he wrote up a fictitious counseling statement about someone and the entire office revolted. The manager wasn’t fired like we wanted, but he was relieved.
So in comes the new manager. Very well regarded, 20 year Air Force veteran (retired at E-9), humble guy who knew how to handle people. We have our first awkward team meeting, old manager bitterly in attendance. As the new manager is giving his “nice to meet you” speech, he sees the douchebag glaring around the table trying to intimidate people. He stops talking, pauses for a few seconds, and then says, “You know, when I was in the Air Force I learned that if you take care of your people, they’ll take care of you.” He then stared directly at the old manager and said, “And if you don’t take care of your people, they’ll take care of you.” ~ BurtGummer938
Sitting on a highway late at night because of a bad car accident. The highway was packed and barely moving.
One guy thinks he’s smarter than everyone else and tries to drive on the shoulder. He makes it a good little ways before running into an on ramp, also packed with cars. He had no where to go, and no one let him in. He was stuck between cars in the right most lane and cars from the on ramp. Everyone stuck bumper to bumper and flowed around him.
I went from watching him pass me and almost getting out of my view to passing him and losing sight of him in my rear view. ~ Curmud6e0n
When I was a kid, we visited Montreal. I had gotten a hockey puck as a souvenir. While we were in our hotel, my sister decided to mess with me by hiding it. I got mad and yelled in my high pitched voice “GIVE ME BACK MY HOCKEY PUCK!” before smacking her in the head with a pillow. Guess where she had hidden it. ~ rnilbog
I got rear ended in a turn lane by a girl texting. She was doing 45mph and I was stopped. No major injuries. I went to her court date hoping she got a big fine or something. She got a $50 ticket. I was a little bit upset.
As I was sitting at the stop light to pull out of the court I watched her run a red light and tbone a cop. I don’t normally laugh at other peoples misfortune, however, I laughed my ass off at that one. ~ SicCorona
On my drive back from school I witnessed a car run a red light in front of a cop; the car was subsequently pulled over. I pointed laughing and then immediately smashed into the car in front of me. ~ ProfessorProfessersn
The other day I was taking my dog for a walk around the neighborhood. She squatted down to take a shit and I reached for my doggie bags only to realize I was fresh out. So I peeked around making sure nobody was looking, and I just left it.
10 minutes later I’m walking across the road and I cut through a thin grass median in the center and what do you know — I step in dog shit. I wasn’t even mad, I knew I deserved it. ~ HuskyInfantry
I was at a party one time, and this one girl couldn’t stop talking shit about this other girl that was coming to the party. The other girl shows up and this dude picked her up and hugged her and spun her around in a way where her foot kicked the girl that was talking shit right in the head/face while she was sitting on the couch. Her beer spilled all over her and she caught a black eye. ~ Bigbodypresence
Happened to me at work. Meth head was trying to pay with like a thousand coins for a $5 scratch off. She tried to say she was only ten cents short. Ended up being over a dollar short, then complained and said any decent person would have spotted her the money. Pretty much told her she could go down the street and try there if she’d like. She pulled out a twenty and bought two.
As she walked out the store she said “karma is a bitch.” When she gets to her car a cop pulls up behind blocking her in. They proceed to search the car then arrest her and her boyfriend. It was hilarious. Fuck her. ~ ChosenBearded
A classmate in school broke one of his legs and was using crutches, he was about to go down the stairs and another kid KICKED one his crutches down the stairs. I walked down there and got his crutch for him and while walking back up, the kid who kicked the crutches came tumbling down and I moved out of the way. The kid broke his arm. ~ G0ATLY
Last Saturday I was on a crowded NYC subway at 2am. Two drunk dudes, young 20’s, lighting a joint and walking around flaunting it. One literally came up to me “you think a pothead ain’t gonna smoke a joint?” (Whatever that means.)
The whole train kept ignoring them, and they kept parading around being a bunch of morons. They spotted two taller, athletic looking dudes and started making fun of them for “looking like cops.”
It was the line “which one of you is the sergeant??” that finally put the athletic guys over the edge. They looked at each other, smiled, reached into their pocket and pulled out their badges. “Okay boys, empty your pockets.”
The subway blew up in laughter… they would have gotten away with EVERYTHING if they just didn’t go bother the two plain-clothes police officers. Score one for the good guys!
And then I went home and smoked a joint in my living room. ~ patricio12345
An ex of mine cheated on me. A few months later after breaking up and her moving up north, she calls me in tears to tell me her new boyfriend had been cheating on her, he gave her herpes. ~ tony_nz
That seems like a pretty good place to stop. Going to be pretty hard to top that one.
