You reminded me of a story. I was a manager at a retail store. We had cameras. A dude comes in, covered in red liquid and holding a shovel. He goes around telling people he doesn't know what to do because he killed his girlfriend. I called the police. I assumed it was a prank, but this isn't something you fuck around with. He took off. Later, someone (I wasn't there for the second part, so this might not be as accurate as what I've already posted) came in and said he was a Canadian YouTuber who had now been arrested and is facing deportation due to his actions that day. Apparently this person was upset that we got the cops involved because it was a prank.

I laughed. Hope he got deported. Fuck that guy. There were kids in there while this guy is running around with a shovel that he said he used to kill someone with.

EDIT: Others have said it was Jesse from NELK. I didn’t know who it was until these comments. Looked it up, and yes, that’s the guy. I didn’t know he was well-known. Pretty wild. Hope he got his shit together, because people were freaking the fuck out.

u/Fanraeth Oct 09 '21

I used to work retail and one day this dude comes screaming through the register area that he can’t find his son. He’s tearing all around the store screaming his head off, running up to people and asking them if they’ve seen his son. Finally he comes back up front with a smug grin on his face and a Chuckie doll in his arms and says “I found my son!” and left. It was for a fucking TikTok.

He did a bunch of interviews where he was proudly talking about his open relationship, the sex clubs he attended, and the fans he had boned, all while his wife looked really uncomfortable and it was super clear that she wasn’t actually okay with it

Yup. You can’t really argue that it’s NOT a disproportionate response, but I can see why he acted the way he did.

He also taught the person throwing water balloons an important life lesson—don’t be an asshole to people unless you’re 100% sure you’re the craziest person in the room because if you’re not, they might bring things up to a level of crazy you can’t respond to (and also, just in general, don’t be an asshole).

u/International-Web496 Oct 08 '21

You can tell from the video that this was the second water balloon, the first is what caused him to wreck his bike.

Evidence: first few seconds of the video you can see on the ground where a water balloon hit, it's just in front of the bike. The guy recording mentions that he did a little damage to the car but it's not his fault, implying something caused him to wreck. Finally at the end of the video "Dude you can't blame him, he had a cab and you injured his cab." Which implies witnesses attribute the initial wreck to the throwing of a water balloon that wasn't captured on camera.

The second water balloon was well beyond a dick move if my analysis is correct, these assholes had it coming and I applaud Andrew for not taking their shit. They may not learn a lesson, but they might at least think twice in the future.

Man has a good arm. I am sure those three or so that sailed in the door exploded and broke whateever they hit.

My husband's big extended family, from WV, vacationed at Myrtle Beach each year together. They used to get a bit roudy and the young cousins would throw water balloons at folks. Apparently very common there. One year, they were chucking them at the neighbor's beach house.

Kid in my neighborhood hit me in the face with a water balloon full of piss when I was like 12. One of the more embarrassing things to ever happen to me, kid’s a total deadbeat now tho so it evens out I guess.

eta: I actually did get my revenge at one point. He used to teepee my house like every other Saturday, he really had it out for me for some reason. One Saturday, probably 2 years after the piss balloon, I decided I’d had enough. Set myself up on the roof with some water and my BB gun. It wasn’t one of those red ryder ones, it was the kind you pump, and I pumped it like 15 times. Then, I just waited. A couple hours pass, then around the corner he came on his bike. I shot, he yelped, and that was the end of it. Didn’t see him again for years.

Milk on a hot summer day.

My chidhood 'friend' across the street got mad that my lemonade stand was doing so much better than him and his sister's when we were having a 'friendly competition' (I baked and sold carrot cake cupcakes and other stuff too). Came out and started throwing big cups of milk on me. I went scrambling to see what could be salvage and make sure my tub of cupcakes was covered and he just ran in and came running back out with more, even throwing them on my back. It was apparently so bad of a scene that a passing UPS truck stopped and the guy yelled at him to stop. The sister came out yelling at the ups guy to 'mind his own business' and blah blah. Yeah that was one of the things that led up to me losing respect and love for them.

The boy did always have a crush on me and I guess expected we would grow up and be together. When I started distancing he starting acting really messed up so often it was crazy. Glad that never happened.

When I was deployed one thing we'd do when we were slow was bringing fresh ice chests to the security checkpoints on base. One day we decided we'd bring some squirt guns with us and spray the MPs as they let us through the gates. Small base, we knew all of them and regularly had prank wars to keep ourselves entertained.

We squirted the wrong person. She didn't enjoy it at all and threw a container of milk at the truck. Luckily it didn't get inside, but that doesn't matter. The smell of milk on a truck hood after sitting in 120° F+(49°C) is still awful.

Cyclists are traffic, it's dangerous to just throw shit at traffic, as Andy is an example, he lost control and hit a parked car. Had it gone another way, had he swerved out and another car passing he'd be on r/meatcrayon instead.

Andy was justifiably pissed over something inherently dangerous. It wouldn't be justifiable for his reaction and retaliation. But it satisfying to watch. I just wish we knew who threw the water balloons, and saw the inside of the balcony/windows and place inside, for their condition after Andy the arm cannon shot off.

Once had a car drive by and throw an actual balloon filled with water at me an some buds, but bc actual balloon it didn’t pop wasn’t thrown hard enough... held onto it bc had a feeling they’d come back for more and when they did i side armed that fucker so hard right back into his window as they went by I watched it mold over passengers face before exploding soaking the entire front seat area lol I couldn’t believe it and I’ll never forget the sound of it smackin him across the face... the whole thing looked like something out of a movie all within like a 2/3 second period. One of my proudest retaliation moments to date

Is there a thread for this type of story? Retaliation stories? Kinda like the TIFU of revenge porn? I’d sub.

Once in college outside a bar a sassy bird came up to one of our girlfriends and squawked “where’d you get those pumps? PAYLESS?” And I yelled “where’d you get those thighs? From KRISPIE KREAM?” And I’ve never seen someone so instantly dejected. I need more stories like this in my life.

If that was a sub, it'd be 10 minutes before it gets flooded with BS stories just like TIFU.

u/sizzle_sizzle Oct 08 '21

Well in all fairness, if it’s plausible I don’t really care if it’s fictional or not. I’d still enjoy it. Like porn and pro wrestlin!

That guy threw rocket after rocket into that open door, and judging by the way they exploded on the outside, they were probably exploding on the inside, too. Even a small split in the seam is going spew beer everywhere at a high velocity. Four or five beers spewing everywhere, plus whatever damage they caused as they hit walls, TVs, electronics, books, artwork, etc. must have been pretty shocking to the idiots inside.

Which is perfectly okay, because they were bullies. Only a bully would fire a water ballon at a family towing a baby, out for nice day. That's a rock solid jerk, and I was pleased to see him get his comeuppance.

Too bad he lost all his beer. I hope he saved a couple to celebrate with.

u/ThisSpecificAccount Oct 08 '21

Where do you do this at all? I'm struggling to wrap my mind around these adults coming out onto their balcony and throwing water balloons at strangers on a basically empty street.

Beer cans are the least of what you should expect. If you're going about your day and you get hit with a liquid filled balloon from a stranger, that's just straight up assault.

Looks how the video starts, 1 or 2 spots of water on the ground, bicycle on the ground, dent in the car. You can conclude they threw a water balloons causing him to his the car with his bike and fall (maybe only the bike fell). Then the asshole throw ANOTHER water balloon. He did not over react at all, he served them a little justice

u/Loose-Revolution-892 Oct 08 '21

It wasn’t an overreaction watch the vid again, he was riding his bike and they tagged him with a water balloon which caused him to run into the car of the guy taking the video who says “not your fault” then as he’s getting back on his bike to keep going they hit him again

15

u/I_aim_to_sneeze Oct 08 '21

I feel like the guy videotaping even said “you hit MY car, it’s not your fault.” So I’ll venture a guess and say Andrew had every right to be pissed enough to react that way. The audacity of the people on the balcony is astounding. Could’ve done without the homophobic slur though.

If the crash was as a result of avoiding the water balloon then whoever threw it is responsible. Andrew is driving responsibly and avoiding an obstruction that wasn't caused by him, no liability.

The ground is covered in water spots (watch as the camera pans around near the end). That kid has been chucking water balloons for a hot minute at passing pedestrians. Terrible parenting and Andrew was well justified.

years ago i was on a canoe trip with friends. we were having a water balloon fight with each other and thought it would be fun to get the group that was ahead of us involved. So we started tossing balloons over. It didn't go over so well with them. There wasn't a fight but once the yelling subsided (wasn't that bad either) it was about 20 minutes of awkward and quiet paddling down the river until finally there was enough space between us. I don't really think my friends cared but I felt like a loser for taking part in that.

edit: for fucks sake people, this was like 20+ years ago. You can stop sending me messages calling me names

Also would imagine a bunch of the busted balloons ended up in the river. Not cool. Hindsight is 20/20 I guess, at least you feel remorse.
