If there’s one thing subreddits like r/MaliciousCompliance and r/PettyRevenge have taught us, it’s never mess with people. It doesn’t matter who they are or what they do for a living. They can all deliver karma in the most effective way possible and earn some style points for doing so.
And nothing is more effective than a garbage collection service contractor in this storyA Redditor recently shared that a father’s friend has not taken any client bargaining pranks at all and simply decided to “refund” his services.

Pro Tip: Don’t interfere with whoever disposes of your trash. One quick raid and all that trash is straight back at you

This is doubled when you start renegotiating prices with garbage disposals and refuse to compromise.

And if one doesn’t budge, probably the other won’t either, eventually throwing all the collected trash straight onto the lawn

Reddit user u/shialebeefe recently shared a petty revenge story. Not theirs, but still funny. It actually happened to a friend of my father’s who makes a living by collecting garbage from people’s homes in his truck.
One day he agreed to this one customer to clean his house and dispose of all the garbage. Prices were pre-set and everything seemed to start working. Once he did, it took him about half a day to clean up the house and put all the trash in the truck.
Things got worse when customers started haggling over prices after being asked to pay, even though they had already agreed. Despite their best efforts, negotiations went nowhere. This led the Gomi Meister to the only solution he’s seen so far without agreeing to ridiculous terms.
He went to the truck’s control panel. To his surprise, he was able to tilt his rear end and unload the trash quickly. And he did. Entire customer premises. Customers tried to stop the impending doom, but much like negotiations, despite their best efforts, it went nowhere.
And he sat in the truck and drove off. He needed the money, but this time his professional integrity was more important. And the internet approved.
Some of the comments showed their appreciation for the story in the form of sarcastic remarks and advice, while others showed their appreciation for the story, making people regret their cheapness for trying to haggle when the bargain ran out. Some shared similar stories of becoming. So the entertainment continued nicely in the comments section.

Now, price haggling and bargaining are not bad per se. It’s just business. And business involves a minimum-maximum mindset. And with flexible pricing, you might be able to build long-term relationships with some customers, or grow your business by recommending you to others.
But the problem here is that the customer went too far with the lack of flexibility.But the Contractor did what was right For his part in this agreement, he assessed how much his time, skills and work were worth and was ready to walk away.
And it’s not like he managed to do it cheaply. In some cases When people ask someone to work cheaply to save money. But some experts say they can’t come cheap because their reputation is ultimately at stake.
Not sure about the rest of the exchange, but he held his ground and it was good in the long run.
