40 Troublemakers Share Their Stories Of Being Banned For Life

23. Virgin Megastore

This is probably for the best. Getting banned from a Virgin Megastore isn’t necessarily a bad thing, considering they cease to exist and have now been replaced with “Zavvi.” Even though this Reddit user shoplifted, it’s still a funny story. It seems like he was the one that won (via CyJackX). 

Reddit

22. A Cult

We can see why the owners thought these people were a religious cult, although it doesn’t seem like reason enough to get banned. They were just roleplaying and keeping to themselves. If they started including random passersby around them, we could understand the ban more. Maybe the owners were just being cautious (via Siderealcat). 

Reddit

21. Browsing Items

Since when does someone get banned for browsing a store? This guard has a different definition of browsing. This Reddit user was “just picking stuff up and putting them back again.” How else do you look through stuff? It’s probably a good thing he was banned from John Lewis since it doesn’t seem like a very welcoming store to shop in (via AFalconNamedBob). 

Reddit

20. Stole Sunglasses

It comes as no surprise that Sears banned this Reddit user for stealing a pair of sunglasses 40 years ago. Stealing comes with consequences. And consequently, a shop banning you is one of them. It could’ve ended a lot worse, as he could’ve ended up going to jail as a result (via roadrobber). 

Reddit

19. Planet Fitness

This sounds like a scam. First, it seems like Planet Fitness is stealing money from its customers by luring them into a plan, and then threatening them with a $150 cancellation fee. It was pretty smart of this Reddit user to call their bank and tell them not to let Planet Fitness take any money from their account due to this strange fee. Luckily, they’re banned from ever signing up again, so at least they don’t have to worry about them stealing money from them ever again as a result (via Manati_banzai). 

Reddit

18. Knocking Over Bookshelves

This is something we’d all probably love to see. That must’ve been an entertaining and chaotic day at the library due to this odd behavior. What was she doing that caused her to knock over all of the bookshelves? Whatever the reason, it makes sense the library banned her as a result. It seems like it’s worth it for the story, though (via Current_Material3899). 

Reddit

17. Best Buy

This Reddit user managed to steal a bunch of CDs from Best Buy, get banned, and then go back even though they weren’t allowed. It’s smart they never stole anything again because the consequences probably would’ve been a lot worse the second time around (via Flippant_Robot). 

Reddit

16. Playing With Toys

Honestly, it’s quite sad that this Early Learning Center banned him for playing with toys even though he didn’t have a toddler with them. We understand if there were rules in place where the toys were only for the kids, but if it was solely because he was a teenager playing with the toys, it seems like a letdown as a result. Therefore, let this guy have some fun, as long as he’s not disturbing anyone else (via BlackJackKetchum). 

Reddit

15. Fridges Not Working

This Reddit user deserves a thank you from the corner shop due to this ban. The state could’ve easily shut them down because they had a health violation in place. It seems they retaliated and wanted to blame this Reddit user due to his findings and tried to accuse him of stealing. He seems pretty happy he was banned, and we would be too (via lithaborn). 

Reddit

14. Banned From Town Center

This Reddit user admits they got a 24-hour ban for starting a fight and then trying to sneak back in over a fence. That’s pretty brave. Of course, with alcohol confidence, anything seems possible. It seems that this experience was a turning point for this Reddit user. He changed his drinking habits (via wdlp).

Reddit

13. Banned For Quitting

This seems pretty harsh. How does someone get banned from somewhere for quitting? Not only is that not fair, but it’s just plain cruel. It seems that the landlord had something against this person. They’re better off with the ban anyway (via redreadyredress). 

Reddit

12. 21st Birthday

What a way to go – go hard or go home, right? This guy certainly went hard before the bar banned him. The bar kicked him out for shouting at a barmaid. He then snuck back in, was kicked out again, and then tried to sneak back in and ended up falling through the ceiling. At least he got away, unharmed (via SonOfARemington). 

Reddit

11. Village Pub

It seems this village pub doesn’t like outsiders and had something against the company. It’s probably something they’ll never have the answer to. Since the landlord gave up the tenancy after a year, he was probably already struggling with something. Maybe it’s a good thing they never went into that pub (via newnortherner21). 

Reddit

10. Mom Banned From High School?

There’s so much going on in this post. Firstly, this Reddit user’s mom was banned from their high school. Not only that, but the school banned her for barging into class and cursing and yelling at the wrong table of girls. How terrifying! Watching their mother get escorted out of class by the principal and police officer is mortifying. It’s something everyone in that high school talked about for weeks after. While it was a stressful situation back then, at least it seems like they can laugh at it now (via inmuah). 

Reddit

9. Banned From Russia

We’d ban ourselves from Russia too if this happened to us. The government contacted this Reddit user with a £20k fine. Not going back to Russia is worth saving the tens of thousands of pounds (via acidus1).

Reddit

8. Working Men’s Club

This men’s club does seem pretty strict, but they also seem quite reasonable. Getting banned for making too much noise, cursing, swearing, and mocking the committee seems like a valid reason to ban someone from entering a men’s club (via LumpyCamera1826). 

Reddit

7. DVD Store

Getting banned for an accident seems harsh. We’ve all tripped and knocked things over. We’re human, after all. The DVD store banned this Reddit for life because of it. It seems that Karma got this DVD store, as they ended up closing a few years later (via ambiguous_teacup). 

Reddit

6. Banned But Coming Back

It looks like bans from stores are temporary. Typically, stores use them as a warning. People keep going back despite the ban and usually succeed at getting in as a result. Unfortunately for this Reddit user, the store banned them after a mental breakdown. Luckily, they’ve henceforth managed to sneak back in many times since (via maisiieeee). 

Reddit

5. Toothbrush

This is a moment where we’d have to take the blame for our kid because they didn’t know any better. This kid got his payback, however. His mother got in trouble for stealing a toothbrush even though it wasn’t her fault. Consequently, she had to take the blame and was banned from the store (via stitchmidda2). 

Reddit

4. Aggressive Dancing

This is one of those times where the ban actually stuck. Six years later, the club still rejects this Reddit user because of what they did. It makes sense, though, considering they tried to aggressively dance and do a cheerleader stand on their mate’s shoulders. We would’ve loved to see that (via mitcheg3k). 

Reddit

3. Trying Out Bowling Bowls

It seems like common sense that you can’t try out bowling balls at a store because of the potential damage. How would that even work? It’s not a bowling alley. We’re not even surprised the store banned this Reddit user for trying out bowling balls as a result. It is a good story though (via sid32). 

Reddit

2. Wet Floor

This is a hilarious way to get banned and worth the ban as a result. The creativity and wittiness of this person’s roommate are wonderful. If we saw this display next to the wet floor sign, we’d be in hysterics because it’s hilarious. It’s almost too good to get banned (via ChillInChernobyl). 

Reddit

1. Snoring In Germany

Random people can ban you from a country. This Reddit user shares their experience snoring in a hostel in Germany. A random person was then banned from the country. Honestly, we wouldn’t want to sleep in the same room as that person anyway because of this, so hopefully, this Reddit user left and found accommodation elsewhere (via Kokobwarewolf).
