A man recently got fed up with his rude neighbor until an opportunity for revenge presented itself. All it took was a few clicks on his keyboard to drive his noisy neighbor insane. Here’s what he had to say.
He lived in an apartment
The man gave context by explaining his living situation at the time. He and his girlfriend lived in a small apartment building that had a shared outdoor space, a small garden that all tenants could use. Unfortunately, he never got a chance to use it.
His neighbor was obnoxious
The apartment’s communal garden was almost always in use by the man’s loud, rowdy neighbor. The man blasted music at all times, littered frequently, and hosted loud barbecues in the garden as well. The man couldn’t tolerate his neighbor’s behavior much longer.
His neighbor refused to change
The man wasn’t the only one of the tenants who couldn’t stand this neighbor. However, every time someone asked the neighbor to keep it down or be more considerate, he brushed off their concerns. The neighbor said it was his right to be as loud as he wanted and keep having boisterous, drunken parties.
He made a discovery
One day, while his neighbor was outside, the man made an important discovery. “I noticed he had a similar sound system to ours,” he said. “It required no authentication for a Bluetooth connection.”
He got a little revenge
Seeing this exploitable opening, the man decided to have some fun with it. He coded a simple program that would automatically connect to his neighbor’s speaker whenever it was turned on. Once connected, the program automatically played audio from adult films at full volume. His neighbor couldn’t figure out how to stop it, so he bought a new speaker.
He hijacked the Wi-Fi
The neighbor’s new speaker worked via Wi-Fi rather than Bluetooth. “Since he made the mistake of loudly announcing his Wi-Fi password to his guests regularly,” said the man, “I connected to it.” He set up a program to change the Wi-Fi password on a regular basis. “I even set up my old laptop to run this program continuously.”
Not even the printer was safe
Along the way, he hijacked his neighbor’s TV to play adult films as well. He even printed prank images on his neighbor’s printer. He pulled other pranks, too, such as messing with the speaker volume.
His neighbor never learned from his mistakes
Amusingly, his neighbor never figured out the problem. He kept loudly sharing his password for all to hear, and when he called technicians out to fix his issues, they were never able to diagnose or resolve them. His neighbor never realized his mistake of broadcasting his passwords and leaving everything unprotected.
His neighbor lost it
Finally, after being subjected to these pranks for some time, his neighbor snapped. “Instead of his usual blaring music, we listened to him yell and smash kitchenware the last few weeks before he finally moved out,” said the man. “It was like music to our ears nonetheless.”
The Internet reacted
The comment section celebrated the original poster’s technological revenge. “This is the kind of petty revenge I fantasize about doing if I had a neighbor like yours,” read one reply. “While I don’t condone hacking or causing unnecessary harm to someone, it sounds like your neighbor was a real piece of work,” said another commenter. “Sometimes people need a taste of their own medicine to realize the error of their ways.”
