Check out another pro revenge tale with this bridezilla Karen who ended up looking like a pauper at her own wedding.

Marty Reid is the announcer in this scenario, and we're honoring his own hilarious little slip up with a video that shows him forgetting Andy Petree's name.

Belligerent Customer Won't Cooperate With Tech Support

Sometimes you're having a conversation with a human being that you otherwise thought was perfectly rational, and not prone to fits of blind and entirely irrational rage, and then they pull a fast one on you. This particular customer opted for being a waking nightmare. Fortunately, the tech support employee who fielded the situation kept their cool, and it all worked out in the end.

Bride's Mom Isn't Told About Surprise Proposal, Unleashes Rage Saga

Hm, just a little bit of a gut feeling here, but it feels like there was a definite reason that the bride's mom wasn't told about the surprise proposal at play. Seems like she very well might've done something to mess up the whole operation, because she sounds like she's just a little consumed by her own selfish concerns. It's not often that you witness someone stage a whole fit about their kid's proposal because they weren't made aware of it, but here we are. Perhaps, take a deep breath, mom.

Man Loathes Sriracha, Unknowingly Eats It For Months

This guy absolutely isn't alone in his profound moment of learning that he'd been eating a food/condiment without having any idea about it. It can happen to the very best of us. With that being said, it's quite hilarious that he managed to eat so many meals with the Sriracha included, without having a clue about it. Wonder if there were ever moments along his journey where he found himself wondering what it was about his meal that he didn't fully enjoy. Or, maybe, just maybe he's learned that Sriracha is actually quite tasty, and can compliment many a meal out there. 

Dude unknowingly eats the very hot sauce that he hates most in this world.

Entitled Lowballer Doesn't Understand Lowballing

What a classic choosing beggar scenario right here. They want something, they get the something, and then their own blinding entitlement leaves them convinced that they somehow got screwed over. It's fascinating (in a bad way) on some level to watch this kind of interaction so grossly devoid of logic, play itself out.

Man Follows Contracted Hours, Team Follows Suit, Management Caves

Man, oh, man, it sounds like this particular management team was terribly detached and clueless. They continued to send in uniformed representatives, as their company was proactively losing money, and wasted a whole lot of time when they could've actually resolved the issue. All that it took to set the whole thing in motion was one employee strictly following their contracted hours. 

Man insists on strictly following contracted hours, everyone follows suit, and management ends up caving | r/MaliciousCompliance Join u/narsfweasels 19h "He Works Clock s His Contract M TL;DR at bottom.
