There are some people who wander the earth completely unwilling to accept the consequences of their own actions. People of this nature will spin a tall tale and dance circles around others creating stories about why they are the real victim, and the world is always conspiring against them, at every turn.
Since people who play the victim are often practiced at spinning things, it can be hard to nail down their behvaior amidst the oblivion, but there are some situations that are so cut-and-dry it's wild to watch someone play the victim despite all proof to the contrary.
In a popular Reddit thread, people shared the most obvious examples of someone playing the victim despite being the villain, and it's truly wild how some people delude themselves.
I was in a crowded parking lot, driving around looking for a space. There was one car ahead of me. The car ahead of me stopped, so I stopped as well. (I'm not sure why she stopped because there were no empty spaces and no one was pulling out, but whatever).
