This Redditor had a loud and inconsiderate neighbor who refused to heed their pleas for peace and quiet. So, he played around with the neighbor’s home devices to teach him a lesson!
OP (Original Poster) had a memorable run-in with a neighbor from a few years back when he lived in a small apartment building with his girlfriend. This building had just a few apartments and a small communal garden that they all shared.
In that apartment, OP’s had a neighbor who “everyone hated.” He consistently played loud music, left garbage outside his door, hosted noisy parties while intoxicated every weekend, and disregarded all requests to reduce the noise, claiming his “right” to make as much noise as he pleased.
OP said, “You know the one.”
One day, OP looked out the window, which gave him a perfect view of the shared garden.
There, he saw the same place where the neighbor loved to host his noisy grill parties even though there were numerous requests from others to share the space fairly.
Looking out the window gave OP his eureka moment. OP noticed that his neighbor had a sound system that looked just like his, requiring no Bluetooth connection authentication.
That’s when OP’s mischievous plan began to brew.
A Revenge Plan
OP decided to create a program that would automatically connect to his neighbor’s speakers as soon as they powered up.
OP played the same “15 seconds of gay p*** sounds on repeat.” His neighbor kept taking the speakers to the service, which didn’t help, so he bought a newer set.
There’s No Escape
Fortunately for OP, his neighbor’s new sound system could connect to Wi-Fi. This allowed OP to continue his revenge plan.
He Had It Coming
Since his neighbor regularly shared his Wi-Fi password with guests and never bothered to change the default password, OP connected to it.
He created another program that automatically connected to the neighbor’s Wi-Fi and kept changing the router password.
How About That for Payback?
OP had gone to the extent of configuring his old laptop to run this program without interruption.
“It also kept streaming gay p*** to his TV at random intervals, printed a luscious d*** pic whenever his printer came online,” he shared. OP would either suddenly alter the volume of his speakers every 47 minutes or subtly increase or decrease it over the course of several hours.
It’s Not That Hard
For others, what he did wasn’t easy, but OP pointed out that he possessed his neighbor’s original, unchanged Wi-Fi password. This was also the case for the router.
OP knew the default password and the specific IP address it operated on, so it wasn’t hard for him to exact his revenge.
Trust Me, Bro
Through the IP address, OP added that his neighbor inadvertently granted him unrestricted access to the entire home network.
Furthermore, around 70% of the mentioned programs were essentially pre-recorded macros, so all OP required was some “available free time.” OP said it’s “nowhere near as impressive as it sounds at first.”
There’s No Fixing This
Being so close to his neighbor, OP even saw the internet service provider’s attempts to “fix” the network, which all failed miserably. He said, “Every time they reset the Wi-Fi, my program was already there, changing the administrator password.”
After about three months of this relentless digital onslaught, the internet service provider gave the neighbor a new router with a fresh password.
Reaching the End
But instead of personalizing it so no one could hack into it, OP’s neighbor never changed the password and kept the default one. He then “promptly announced” it to his friends the weekend after.
Soon, instead of his neighbor’s usual “blaring” music, they all heard his cries of frustration. OP shared, “We listened to him yell and smash kitchenware the last few weeks before his neighbor finally moved out. It was like music to their ears nonetheless.”
What Redditors Think of the Issue
Redditors shared their opinions about what they would’ve done, like playing their excellent music choices.
A top commenter wrote, “I would have tossed in Baby Shark and other jammin’ tunes.”
One user said, “Ram Ranch would’ve sped up the process.”
A Round of Applause
Users also praised OP and his creative form of payback.
One Redditor said, “I’m a network engineer who does automation development, and I love your solutions. This is the kind of petty revenge I fantasize about doing if I had a neighbor like yours.”
Another user replied, “This is one of the best petty revenge stories I’ve ever read. Absolute gold!”
Was OP’s revenge as commendable as it appears? Was it a step too far and crossed his neighbor’s line?
