Chef Modifies Dish To Account For Food Allergy, Customer Gets Mad Over Confusion

Those brunch and lunch and dinner rushes can get extremely busy out of nowhere. As a server, one moment you might find yourself trying to waste away the time left on your shift by folding a mountain of forks, spoons, and knives into beds of napkins, and the next moment you might find a literal tidal wave of hungry and impatient customers stampeding through the restaurant's door. It can pay off if you're already naturally inclined to keep cool under pressure, because it's only a matter of time before someone stages a full on temper tantrum in a restaurant. In this case though, it sounds like the chef was really just trying to make the correct moves based off the information they had. The ball kind of falls back in the server's court for failing to tell the chef exactly who needed the modified dish.

Woman Tells Neighbors To Stop Talking In Their Garden, Gets Called Out

Unfortunately, far too many of us have come to the sobering realization that we've ended up sharing a neighborhood or apartment building with an absolute waking nightmare of a neighbor. Some people really just go out of their way to meddle in the affairs of people that they have no business complaining to in the first place. Like, these neighbors were just being respectful human beings living their lives. However, apparently all of the conversations that were occurring on their own property were enough to ignite the rage of a neighbor who quite simply expected nothing short of absolute silence from everyone and anyone living nearby. 

For some more wild drama between neighbors check out the time that neighbors stole from a garden, and then how a plant puns wall of shame ensued.

Boss Forces Employee To Choose Between Demotion Or Termination, Asks If They're Wrong

Mental health days are obviously no joke, but if it's at all possible to convey to the boss in question that it's going to be a taking of the day off situation, that could be a good idea. Especially, when in the position of being promoted and tasked with exciting new responsibilities, like opening the store on time. It sounds like there were some communication troubles occurring between these two. Folks in the comments section seemed to be in agreement that the boss wasn't in the wrong for their decision to ask Peggy whether she wanted the demotion or straight up termination. But you be the judge.

Waitress Accidentally Spills Wine On Customer's Jacket, Customer Chooses Not To Tip

It's part of life. Spills happen. For whatever reason this customer decided that the overworked waitress mistakenly spilling wine on their jacket warranted a skip on the tip.

Supervisor Says They'll Be Unreachable On Vacation, Fails To Give Employee Important Info

The thing about taking those much needed vacations and potentially even dipping your toes in the warm waters of some faraway paradise is that you're banking on your work life not eclipsing the dreamy sunsets of whatever destination you've chosen. By the sound of it this company was put in a bit of a tight spot because the supervisor could've done a more effective job at leaving all the important info that they needed to leave, with the company, before they dipped out.

An employee clearly states that they'll be unreachable while on vacation, but their company totally disregards them.

Boyfriend Asks For $5K Loan From Girlfriend, Girlfriend Rejects Request, Boyfriend Gets Upset

Money can complicate an otherwise peaceful relationship very quickly. It sounds like this couple was fairly new in their love affair, but that didn't stop the girl's boyfriend from asking her for a sizable $5K loan. Even though she's clearly well off in terms of what she has saved, it's a pretty bold request to make so early in a relationship. On top of that, the guy didn't take too kindly at all to the rejection. Could be a bit of a red flag situation going on.

Parents Want To Name Kid After "Red Dead Redemption 2" Character, Grandma Freaks Out

Anyone out there who is familiar with the Red Dead Redemption video games is probably well tuned into the fact that the games' storylines and characters were strikingly well developed. Red Dead Redemption is just one of those video games that you don't easily forget. On top of that, it's dangerously easy to completely lose yourself in the meticulously crafted, beautiful world within the game. So, when these parents who are both avid gamers decided that they wanted to name their kid after their favorite character in Red Dead Redemption 2, it was really on grandma to not stage a toxic, outrageously narcissistic temper tantrum. Folks in the comments section were in agreement that grandma could've handled the situation better.

Aunt Dismisses Jellyfish Museum's Warnings, Gets Stung, Wants To Sue, Gets Called Karen

It really sounds like the jellyfish museum was trying to help this woman out, but for whatever reason she decided to adopt quite the stubborn rule-breaking attitude. Naturally, this attitude results in her acquiring the very painful jellyfish sting that she was warned about. And then she proceeds to want to sue the museum. This call for a suing gave way to her being labelled a Karen. So, the question here is whether or not the person who called the Aunt a "Karen" was in the wrong. Folks in the comments section seem to be in agreement that this wasn't so out of line. Of course, nobody likes being labelled a Karen. The thing about it is, when you live down to the stereotype, being labelled a Karen shouldn't be such a wildly unexpected turn of events.

Ex Boyfriend Won't Return Woman's Stuff, Woman Wants To Sell His Stuff

Controlling behavior is gross. Everyone's just out there trying to lead their lives without having to deal with the terrible manipulative tactics that some of the world's more toxic individuals insist on carrying out. It sounds like this guy chose to go down the post-breakup route where he was trying to keep the flames of a relationship that had flickered out alive, by keeping the phone line open for nasty arguments. Yikes, man. With all of that context being covered, it's no big surprise that this woman and her friends found themselves thinking that selling the guy's stuff was the move after the way he chose to handle things. Especially because he got rid of her stuff. If anything, seems like she dodged a real bullet.

Something is awry in this scenario. Of course, people should be encouraged to embrace whatever pet they've chosen to add to their home. Even if it's something atypical like a pet fox.

Wife Announces Pregnancy, Husband Assumes It's A Joke, Cringe Ensues

It sounds like this guy's wife was quite the trickster. The problem with repeatedly joking that you're pregnant is that eventually you'll end up losing some much needed credibility in the process. This scenario in particular brings to mind the whole "boy who cried wolf" predicament. Could the husband have kept his cool just a bit more? Sure. Also though, it sounds like he'd hit a breaking point of his own for when it came to being played around with.

Bride Asks Shower Guests To Ship Gifts To House, Guests Disregard Request

It sounds like this bride was pretty dang clear about exactly what she wanted/needed when it came to the gift giving process for her bridal shower. Basically, by having all of her bridal shower guests actually present their gifts to her in person, she ended up having to decide whether she'd shell out some serious dough for shipping those gifts to her place in California, or returning all the gifts and then repurchasing them. Both of those routes aren't particularly appealing. Thus, it's no surprise that a fair number of people in the comments section were in agreement that the bride wasn't in the wrong for not being too stoked about the whole situation.

Impatient Customers Attempt To Give Waitress Fake Tip, Other Customers Intervene

It's a story like this that really lends itself to the whole belief that many people can definitely benefit from working customer service jobs. When you're forced to grind through shifts in a hellish, steamy, downright frantic dish pit where it feels like time itself is moving along like it's wearing ankle weights, you can develop a whole lot of empathy for anyone else who has to work the same job. Or, if you end up working the floor and dealing with unfortunate waves of unruly customers, the same principle applies. 

The hope would be that people wouldn't need to suffer through those jobs to be reasonably mindful when it comes to respecting people working customer service jobs, but it's glaringly evident that that is not the case. So, when this customer was caught red-handed for trying to pawn off a straight up fake tip to a hard working waitress, their whole game was exposed. Seems like the appropriate move. Could the kid have approached the conversation with their mom a bit more gently? Sure, but otherwise they weren't in the wrong.

Boyfriend Expects Girlfriend To Contribute $200 To His Bud's Wedding Gift

It sounds like this guy is in dire need of taking a moment to reassess his expectations of what constitutes a reasonable wedding gift. Or rather, what his girlfriend should contribute. They're clearly in the early stages of their relationship, and he's already out there waving some red flags. Naturally, the moral judges of Reddit's AITA community were in agreement that he was just a tad bit out of line.
