'You could have called': Customer travels to seller's house by transit, despite not having determined a time to meet up

'You could have called': Customer travels to seller's house by transit, despite not having determined a time to meet up

One person was giving away some cat shelves for free, when they encountered the weirdest customer they had ever come across. When you buy something online you determine a time to meet up, right? I feel like that's the universally acceptable thing to do. Otherwise, you risk just standing outside in the rain or something, without having a concrete plan in place for when you will have the product in your hands. And if you did end up driving out to a seller's house without having set a time to meet…

‘I asked her to put her feet down’: Train passenger plants their feet on another passenger's seat, refuses to take them down when confronted

Public transit attracts all kinds of people, and a big chunk of them are the type you wish you'd never have the pleasure of encountering in your life. Imagine you are on a train, and all these people are packed on it. You've found yourself a nice window seat, and the beginning of your journey goes smoothly. Then, something unfortunate happens… Your nice, quiet seatmate leaves, and a loud, rude one sits across you instead. She begins chewing loudly, mumbling, and eventually, puts her feet on the…

'[I] put my Bluetooth headphones in the freezer to charge': 40+ Awkward moments from people who were totally oblivious to their surroundings

On those groggy mornings where you're on autopilot , mishaps are bound to happen. We've all done it: when you're half-awake, you tend to do things like forget to bring your laptop to work, or maybe you start driving to your mom's house instead of the office, or even searching desperately for your phone while holding it. That's especially funny if someone witnesses you using your phone flashlight to look between the couch cushions for the phone in your hand. One of the more embarrassing things I…

'But you’re advertising it': Customer requests holiday drink from coffee shop, barista refuses to make it because 'it's after Christmas'

'But you’re advertising it': Customer requests holiday drink from coffee shop, barista refuses to make it because 'it's after Christmas'

It must be difficult to be a barista if you don't like to make coffee. Or to be clear, it seems like some baristas look down on anyone who doesn't like their coffee black. They seemingly have a personal vendetta against the vast majority of coffee drinks who don't want their bean juice to be bitter and scalding. Lots of people love frappes or lattes or any number of blended coffee drinks, and this love is fueled by social media “secret menu” hacks. When social media was in its younger years, a…

‘I put my key on the counter and walked out’: Bakery worker gets back at micromanaging owner, quits on ‘sandwich day’, leaving boss to make hundreds of sandwiches by himself

‘I put my key on the counter and walked out’: Bakery worker gets back at micromanaging owner, quits on ‘sandwich day’, leaving boss to make hundreds of sandwiches by himself

Working at a bakery is a dream come true for some, and honestly, what is not to like? The place smells like a literal heaven, and you get unlimited pastries. I might be exaggerating the ‘dream come true part’, because although the latter is true, there is still the pesky issue of the actual work. It can get repetitive, and the pay isn't great (in other words, don't expect to retire early), and to top it all off, you have annoying customers who have obviously never worked a day in their life, an…

'[I] got a $3 gift card to Sonic': 20+ Partiers who attended the worst soirées ever

Great parties are a dime a dozen, but a party that goes completely off the rails will be talked about forever. U/Swansatron had an intriguing query for the r/AskReddit community: “Reddit, what was the worst party you ever attended?” Every answer was a little different — some people shared the funniest things that ever happened, while others revealed they threw parties that hardly anyone attended.

'You need to move, or get out': Karen gets kicked out of pizzeria after blocking server from waiting other tables

'You need to move, or get out': Karen gets kicked out of pizzeria after blocking server from waiting other tables

The service industry is riddled with careless, entitled, and rude customers who think you, as a server, should worship the ground they trample on. At the rate employees come and go in this industry, it's easy to decipher why nobody really likes to work as wait staff. In this case, OP was working at a pizzeria, waiting on an entire floor of tables alone, as there were no other servers on duty that shift. Running to and fro, most of the customers could recognize a damsel in distress when they saw…

'You can't claim residence when you don't pay rent': Karen tenant refuses to pay rent, roommate submits paperwork to get her evicted

Karen roommates are a dime a dozen, as almost everyone has had to deal with somebody who lacks basic practical skills and human decency. In this case, OP was sharing a two-bedroom with a roommate who he quickly found out was a Karen. Thriving on conflict, Karen always found something wrong to point out. She has given herself one hundred different labels, some of which include being a germaphobe, which she uses as an excuse to demand OP touch nothing… in his own home. OP said he was willing to t…

We don't take the word ‘mildly’ lightly, as the fails below aren't the end of the world, but they are a pesky nuisance.

‘My boss messed up’: Driver finds out he's getting fired via group chat boss forgot he's a part of

Every workplace has some kind of group chat, and you'd assume managers would check the members before spreading information about someone getting fired beforehand, but alas, in this case, they did not. OP found out that he was going to be fired in 3 weeks after his boss forgot that he was actually included in the group chat. OP was working as a driver for the company and had been accused of breaking something that according to him, was already breaking since he had started working. The reason t…

I'd be cringing so hard if I was the person behind this birthday mixup … but mistakes happen. Celebrating your birthday is a great time to gather your friends and family members to celebrate your big day. Another year old and wiser!
