‘We had to close the store before Christmas’: Local school organizes toy store for families in need with substantial discounts, new customer base ruins it for everyone

Good deeds are a dime a dozen, but this school really gave it its all so that kids would get great Christmas gifts from their parents who did not have a lot of money. Unfortunately, along comes a Grinch, today known as a Karen, and has to ruin it for everyone. In this case, many Karens. Let's start at the beginning… One school used to organize a toy store for families in need, and this store would be stocked to the brim with all kinds of donations. The parents could shop there and get new toys…

'The entire house went silent': Family members guilt trip a couple into having kids, so they clap back in a way that shuts down the conversation for good

For childfree couples, the holiday season is usually the time of year you get chased around by all of your aunties and older cousins, pestering you about your life choices, your aging physique, and your inability to (so far) provide your bloodline with an heir. What is it, the 1700's? Is that all we're good for?

'That's 14 people in a small kitchen': Landlord brings young children to apartment showings at the home of another couple with youngsters, tenants complain she's being 'very unprofessional'

How would you feel if you knew your landlord was bringing a baby and a toddler to your place while she showed it to prospective tenants? I think most people would protest that, yet one landlord thinks she's actually perfectly fine bringing the kiddos along. As a parent, you love your kid more than anything else, and you think everything they do is cute and sweet and perfect. Even though you're head over heels in love with them, not everyone is as enamored with your little ones' antics. Parents…

Childless adults get a pretty bad rep amongst people who have children, especially in the workplace. Perhaps we're just not ready to have grubby fingerprints on every surface of our home and Cocomelon playing on loop, but for some reason, Stephanie in accounting seems keen on weighing in on our lifestyle choices.

'He tried to fight... [so] I got security involved': Entitled parents at a metal concert bully the crowd into letting their small children squeeze to the front; woman puts the dad in his place

Metal concerts are intense. For anyone who loves accidental punches to the face, getting their toes stomped, and eating the floor before having a 250lbs man help them back to their feet knows that a mosh pit is not a place for the weak. And it's certainly no place for a small child.

'I get a knock on the door. It's the neighbor's mom...holding a receipt': Entitled parent insists neighbor pay for bake sale, neighbor agrees and brings receipts

Sometimes on a warm afternoon, the local kids will hold a bake sale . Maybe in your neighborhood they sell lemonade and chocolate chip cookies, and in others, kids sell baked goods , like breads or slices of bundt cakes. Of course, lemonade is a bit easier to make than baked goods. So parents might volunteer help out with that part. It's really sweet to see kids get excited about being little businesspeople for a day as they sit outside and play store keeper. Plus, if you live in a bustling are…

'We were all left stunned': Doctor refuses to page cardiac team for patient with heart palpitations, warns patient not to leave ward; so patient complies and calls team from hospital bed

Everyone makes mistakes, but not all mistakes cost lives, so working at a hospital, you better know what you are doing, lest the mistake end in tragedy. In this case, one patient was very lucky, due to his own quick thinking and frankly, courage, to do what he knew was right. Hospitals are not always as competent as they look, even though oftentimes, we look at doctors and nurses as if they were literal angels, placing our lives in their hands, trusting them to care for us as they would care fo…

'I apologize on behalf of my Dad': Children of Karens and Kevins share 20+ embarrassing stories

It's easy to feel bad for servers and employees who have to deal with Karen customers on a regular basis, but not enough attention is given to the poor children of these unhinged people. They have to deal with that level of entitlement daily and overcome stomaching one embarrassing encounter after another. They probably feel sick every time they have to go anywhere with Mama Karen or Papa Kevin. Meanwhile, these kids are also spending every waking moment worried that one day, they might take on…

'Manager/owner... won close to $50,000':' Diner insists on showing son the industrial freezer he installed, owner sues him for shoddy work

As a parent, it's only natural to want your kids to be involved in your life. That's why things like “Bring your kid to work” day exist — so you can show your kiddo off to all your coworkers, and let them see what you're doing all day long while they're at school. This dad had a similar idea of sorts… but it majorly backfired on him. U/FlashyCow1 shared a story from their time working at a burger restaurant. This place had a pretty devastating recurring problem: a faulty fridge that was consist…

'She broke multiple heirloom china plates': Dinner host gives sister in law sippy cup and child's plate after she repeatedly drops dishes

These family meals took an interesting turn thanks to a clumsy sister in law. Owning fine china is a point of pride for many people. In some families, china is passed down from generation to generation. It's pretty common for the dishes to be passed on from parent to their adult child, often after a wedding or moving into a new place. Aside from the sentimental nature of these items, they're often irreplaceable. If you break it , you might not be able to make your collection whole again. This p…

'She purposely dumped coffee on a kid': Wife teaches friend's kid a hard lesson when parents refuse to intervene, parents freak out

Some people simply refuse to maintain any control over their children in public, though the real problem comes from the fact that these same parents usually haven't bothered to teach their children how to behave in public either. Sure, if you want to do gentle parenting and all that newfangled jazz, be my guest, but just be sure you aren't just mistaking the word “gentle” for the word “lazy” and are actually putting in the hard yards to make sure you're kids learn the lessons they ought to and…

‘You messed with the wrong neighbor’: Neighborhood middle school kids throw eggs at neighbor's car, neighbor drives egg-covered car to their parent's house to get even

‘Kids these days’ is a saying that has been used for centuries to describe the younger generation, who have some serious courage (more than I ever had, to be sure). Kids don't really get the implications of their actions unless they are taught a lesson, and that lesson can come in all shapes and forms. Good parenting is critical to solving recurring issues, such as the one I am about to tell, and luckily the dad in the story understood the assignment. OP began his tale by explaining how two kid…

'Get your kids out of the way': Wannabe mom-fluencer gets banished from the park after dominating the playground for her own personal photoshoot

Mom-fluencers are objectively the worst. Half the time, they're the type of parents that film their child's tantrums to teach their 20,000 followers how to manage meltdowns, but in real life they're forgetting to give their kid any genuine attention, they're late to pick them up from school because they were live-streaming at Target, and they're the parent that would rather get those likes instead of putting a bandaid on their kiddo's scraped knee.
