Incompetent Boss Sabotages Business, Employee Steals Boss' Clients

Man oh man, nothing can bring a hard working employee's blood to a boil like having to deal with an incompetent boss who insists with bullish ignorance that they know how to run things, as they ruin everything. Jeff sounds like a waking nightmare to work with, and a generally toxic person to be around. Fortunately, this guy was able to use his talent and skillset to start up his own business, and successfully poach some of Jeff's clients. And honestly, it sounds like that was for the best. Businesses weren't long for this world under Jeff's "guidance."

You've gotta hand it to Radiant Plumbing and Air Conditioning for putting together whatever on God's green earth this thing is. We're totally blind regarding their acumen at putting a toilet back together, but they seem pretty damn good at putting a toilet-themed sci-fi parody together. It's got that local-business-vibe. It's got lasers. It's got everything, man.

Leaving a review isn't always as simple as saying whatever you want about what happened. Case in point, this lying Karen getting decimated by an owner's response. Some business owners watch their reviews like a hawk, and they make time go into serious detail about what actually went down.

Fiery Business Responses to Poor Online Reviews

People absolutely love leaving extremely critical, sometimes untruthful reviews of stores and restaurants. Sometimes it's even a lie made up by their competition. Business owners will go to bat online to defend their honor, like this guy who leveled with a customer who complained over buying a single dollar taco. Sometimes customers are lying to save face and the business brings in some critical details, like this tattoo parlor that had an epic response for an entitled customer.
