'You better have all 30 bags on my car before I get back': Teenager mistaken for hardware store employee gets back at impatient DIYer

This DIYer got schooled by a teenager on how to treat employees. That's because this dude really thought that employee worked for the store he was at. Even though the kid literally told this guy, a random stranger, that he wasn't an employee, this guy just wouldn't take not for an answer. And in that case, as u/wing_nut_101 puts it, “be careful what you wish for.”

'The contractor calls my office saying this is going to cost $20,000 to fix': Construction consultant gets even with boss

'The contractor calls my office saying this is going to cost $20,000 to fix': Construction consultant gets even with demanding boss by agreeing to "shut up and do your job"
