* [[https://notalwaysright.com/jail-for-life/113740/ This person]] accompanies a friend to court and has a conversation with the judge afterwards. The judge says that his biggest regret was not sending a repeat offender, a sixteen year old girl, to jail for her latest moving violation. On her way home, she tried to [[RacingTheTrain beat a train to the crossing]].
-->''If I had given her the jail time, she'd be alive today.''

* [[https://notalwaysright.com/bye-bi-mom/108861/ This girl]] is practically disowned by her mother just for being bisexual. The final exchange in the story makes it clear that the mother holds zero remorse for kicking her own daughter to the curb.
-->'''OP:''' I think I will move in with [Girlfriend.]
-->'''Mom:''' GOOD RIDDANCE!

* [[http://notalwaysright.com/never-say-no-to-la-novia/21638 This poor girl]]. Her birthday was supposed to be celebrated together with her divorced parents but her mother shown her hateful homophobia after learning her new friend's older sister is a lesbian and storms out, ruining the kid's birthday wishes. On the bright side (well sort of) the father subsequently got full custody and now the little girl is allowed to play with her friend and learn Spanish as well.
* [[http://notalwaysright.com/a-dragon-cannot-be-killed-by-fire-or-bad-parenting/36270 This poor girl]] just wants a dragon toy, but her mother won't let her. Then she tries to get a toy dog, but her mother won't get her that either because it's not pink. Then her mother tells her that she can't get a toy unless it's pink and 'girly', and ''then'' her mother tells the stunned cashier that [[InsaneTrollLogic girls who don't play with pink toys will be gay]] and that her daughter needs to 'learn her place'. Jesus ''Christ''.
* [[http://notalwaysright.com/stick-a-pin-in-my-heart/49600 An otherwise normal tech support call]] about an elderly man trying to access his voicemail takes a depressing turn when he admits that the reason why was because his wife passed away recently and he wanted to hear her voice again via an old voicemail message.

* [[http://notalwaysright.com/mans-best-friend-from-beginning-to-end/28373 This.]] Unlike most things on this list, it's also a HeartwarmingMoment: After a family's dog had to be euthanized, an Air Force lieutenant who lost his brother to cancer cheers the 10-year old son by telling him that if he did his best to make the dog's life worth living, the dog would be proud.
* [[http://notalwaysright.com/gift-carded-and-dearly-departed/31904 This one]], which is also a HeartwarmingMoment -- for some people, the last thing a close person ever gave them is ''very'' important.
* [[http://notalwaysright.com/a-hole-in-one/32216 This homeowner]] who had to deal with asshole golfers who think they can go wherever they want is bad enough, but it gets worse when he lists all the trouble they've put him through--not only have they broken into and wrecked his property, they ''killed his dog''. When people value a damn golf game over life, you know you're dealing with some really scummy folks.
* [[http://notalwaysright.com/santa-will-know-whos-nicer-than-nice/34130 This story]] which is also {{heartwarming|Moments}} -- an eight-year old kid goes above and beyond what is expected for a kid his age to make sure his neighbor, who recently suffered a tragedy, has a Christmas, and moves everyone else to help any way they can.

** Similarly, there's [[http://notalwaysright.com/went-on-a-jurassic-lark/34361 this poor little boy]] whose mother left him at the museum and had driven more than ''three hours'' before the museum called to tell her - and her major concern was her ''[[SkewedPriorities coat]]''.

* [[http://notalwaysrelated.com/not-a-gifted-father/28558 This writer]]. Her father forgot her own birthday, but instead gives a birthday present to her stepsister, whose own birthday is ''a week away''. And then, when the submitter doesn't wish ''him'' a happy birthday a few months later, [[EntitledBastard he calls her an "awful selfish daughter"]].
* [[https://notalwaysrelated.com/the-lawnmower-ban/43211 An elderly mother of two]] works herself into an early grave because she's too stubborn to hire someone to help her with mowing the lawn (the lawn is on a steep incline and has to be kept short per HA rules). While the OP has some excuse to have not been able to help, her brother only says that he shouldn't be expected to do any work just because he's a man when asked why he never helped despite being fit enough to do so. Let this sink in: His mother died early because he was too lazy to help her with the yard work and he doesn't seem to care.

* [[http://notalwayslearning.com/not-a-shred-of-intelligence/30167 One story]] on this section of the site takes place during finals week. A girl comes up to the storyteller complaining that the copy machine hasn't printed her things. A tech goes with her to look, and the girl runs by in tears because she'd accidentally put her report ''through the shredder''.
* Not really a TearJerker, but kinda depressing: [[http://notalwayslearning.com/parlez-snooze-francais/30746 This one student]] in an advanced French class is always late, and when she does come, she sleeps through most of the class. However, her homework is always done, and she does very well on exams. Then one day, the student has had enough of this, and says, in French, [[SurroundedByIdiots "I hate all my classmates."]]. The teacher is surprised that she would blatantly insult everyone in class, but the student is confident that nobody actually understood her. The teacher confirmed that NOBODY in the class understood that fairly-basic-French sentence, and were only there because EVERYONE had cheated for the entire term by using translators. The student was then moved into a class where people were actually interested in learning French.
