20 infuriating stories of people getting punished for doing the right thing.

Doing the right thing may be good for your soul, but it doesn't always get rewarded by the outside world.

There are far too many examples of someone's goodwill being punished by corrupt institutions, taken advantage of by selfish people, or completely misconstrued amidst communication breakdown.

While there are small moments where this dynamic unfolds in subtle ways, some stories are so overt the reverse Karma is undeniable.

In a popular Reddit thread, people shared examples of times their good deeds backfired, and it's the opposite of schadenfreude.

1. From RealisticDelusions77:

Cal Poly University had an incident in the 80s that made the school paper. There was a former Mouseketeer who worked in food services and one day a student asked for help because his purchase hung in the vending machine. She opened it and give it to him, but an alarm went off. She waited for security and explained things to them, but still lost her job.

One day you're a TV performer watched by millions, later in life you're fired because of a snack.
