Taking everything and leaving nothing—that’s generally a good sign that you’re in the wrong. Operating at extreme ends of social behavior and acting in ways that speak to these extremes is going to rub a lot of people the wrong way—regardless of your belief or justification. As has been said a hundred times: We’re all the heroes of our own stories. Everyone has a justification for their actions in their mind for why they’ve done or said something, even if everyone else is telling them that they’re wrong.
This big fan of Gatorade was busy clearing the shelves at their local store of the just-restocked red flavor. They claim to have compulsion issues that center on a need for this specific beverage, still, when they were approached by a mother and her two children, asking if the Gatorade Fan could spare a few bottles. When they declined, the mother got upset and began to go off on the Gatorade Fan. The Gatorade Fan then took to Reddit’s r/AmItheA**hole community to see whether they were in the wrong for buying up the entire stock of the beverage.
Commenters have been pretty decisive with their ruling, declaring the Gatorade fan to be an AH here for buying up the entire stock and refusing to share a single bottle. What’s your take?
