The word petty is thrown around a lot now. People have always been petty before, but it seems to be spotlighted now more than ever with TikTok, Instagram, etc. People are showcasing and asking others if what they did was “petty.”
It can be interesting to see just how far some people go when someone makes them angry or upset.
Calling your best friend to complain is a thing of the past. People have taken revenge and pettiness to a whole new level. Well, Reddit couldn’t let this topic go undiscussed, and we were ready with the popcorn to read some of the pettiness from users.
A Reddit user asked a question that said, “What’s a really petty thing to do after an argument?”
Obviously, We don’t advocate for pettiness, and we do not suggest you try any of the suggestions or answers below, but here are some of Redditor’s top responses!
Screenshot the Argument
A user responded with, “If the argument is through text, screenshot it, so you have “dirt to use for later, just in case.”
Refuse to Say Sorry
A simple answer was, “Refuse to apologize.”

A second user said, “Tighten all the jars in the house”
Another user said, “Tell the mutuals your side of (manipulated) story. Even better if you do this in every argument. Great advice from my ex.”
A “catty” Redditor said, “Push their stuff off the table.”
One Redditor, who I wouldn’t want to be on the bad side of, said, “Depends on the level of argument. If it’s extreme….hiding shrimp in the curtain rod in their home. If it’s small….just a good random crop dusting.”
We’ve all been this Redditor who said, “Making an effort not to let any of your body accidentally touch them when sitting on the couch or laying in bed”
This Redditor responded with, “I remember how my girlfriend once went to complain to my mom.”
Finally, this user said, “My sister used to hit her arm or leg against a corner and then tell our dad I hit her. Our dad never hit me. Just gave me disappointed looks.”
Take the High Road
Although the pettiness of the thread was really juicy, some Redditors chose to take the high road….
Like this Redditor here, “ Arguments between partners should be personal…and not be discussed as gossip topic with friends….”
Pettiness can go pretty far, obviously. You can see that from some of the responses above.
Are you petty? What’s the pettiest thing you’ve ever done after an argument or disagreement? We would love to know!
