Man Mistakes Credit Card For Gift Card, Expensive Fail Ensues

I mean, it's genuinely hard to process the fact that we do indeed share a planet with hopelessly lost souls like the one in this story. The dude literally thought he was making his hefty purchases on a credit card, when in fact it was a credit card. Like, how do you end up in that kind of self-created debacle? The recklessness of blind ignorance is a mystifying thing to behold.

What is going on with management at that hotel? Do they just not care anymore, or what? Maybe it was someone's last day, and they couldn't be bothered to do their one job correctly. No matter the cause, the resulting setup for this guy who just wanted a nice view is a glorious fail.

Customer Tries To Get Tech Support Employee Fired, Employee Shows Customer Up

There's nothing we love to see more than an entitled, aggressive, straight up toxic customer get their rightful comeuppance after issuing threats to an employee. We can only imagine how stressful this must've been for the tech support employee to navigate, but to see them come out on top when it's all said and done makes it all worth it. For some more gold from the tech support world check out the time that tech support had to explain what computers are

Customer "Forgets" Where They Parked Car, Sweet Justice Ensues

It sounds like there was a whole lot more going on in this lady's life. It was confirmed in the comments section that the hospital parking lot she ended up parking the rental car at was pretty dang far away from where she was supposed to return the rental car. Seems like she could've just parked close to where she lived, and then when that turned out to be a faulty move, she tried to play dumb. The thing about playing dumb in her case was it only made the fees worse.

Rude Customers Get Called Out For Being Entitled And Impatient

It's stories like these that might inspire other folks out there to take action and intervene when they see someone else wrongfully giving a hard working employee a hard time over something that they simply have no control over in the first place. There's enough irrational entitlement in this world to make you feel sick to your stomach. So, when you get someone who steps up like this woman, it can temporarily restore your faith in humanity.

Entitled Karens Who Karen'd All Over The Place

It's important to remember that the designation of "Karen" is always a judgement of behavior. Karen is an attitude of entitlement, ambivalence, and a lack of sympathy for fellow people (especially those in customer service). From to Karens getting defeated by kindness to lying Karens getting decimated by restaurant owners, the self involvement, lack of basic understanding and absurd, audacious entitlement in a modern Karen is something to behold.

Manager Tries To Give Customer Predatory Car Loan, Customer Doesn't Fall For It

There's nothing we love more than to see an immoral car dealership manager get his rightful comeuppance after trying to take down a customer with a predatory car loan. Suffice to say, our mohawk'ed customer wasn't playing any games. This is why it's of the utmost importance to read the fine print before going ahead and signing anything. Check out some more of the pettiest petty revenge cases over here

Aggressively Excessive Orders From Starbucks Customers

If you've ever worked a customer service job you're likely familiar with the series of daunting demands, entitlement, and other kinds of stressful nonsense from customers that can fall into one shift. Starbucks really brings the wild ones out. Some people just act like animals and take out all the emotional turmoil they're experiencing from their own life situations on the very folks in stores/restaurants/etc that are just there to help them. It's a gross cycle, and hopefully one that stops altogether, sooner than later. 

With all that being said, we couldn't say that these drink orders are exactly rude, but they are extra. Would really suck to be waiting in line behind a few of these orders. But it'd be even worse to have to make them. Our hearts go out to any baristas that field these kinds of orders.

Kid Tries To Eat Ham Sandwich In Vegan Restaurant, Gets Denied, Mom Complains

Look, this isn't the first time we've encountered a dramatic tale involving a conflict of food ideologies, and we certainly doubt that it'll be the last time. In this case though, it sounds like the mom and kid were really testing (if not altogether crossing) those boundaries put in place by a vegan restaurant. Maybe next time, just have the kid eat the ham sandwich before sitting down at the vegan restaurant, and then bring some plant-based snacks to keep them entertained for the rest of the outing? Or, maybe there'll be folks who think that the restaurant should've just been more accommodating to the kid's meal choice. For some more vegan-themed drama check out this post about a parent who forced their vegan kid to cook meat.

Entitled Karen Thinks Army Cadet Works At McDonald's

You just never know if you're about to cross paths with a ferociously entitled, plain old belligerent Karen who is determined to enact chaos and misery upon someone else's existence. In this case, we have no idea what must've been going through this entitled Karen's brain. It's almost like some of these people only get angrier when they're rightfully corrected on their prior brain fart. Sounds like this Karen absolutely got put in her place. For some more ridiculous Karen drama check out this story about a Karen who took her sweet time in a handicap space, and then proceeded to get blocked in

Employee on Last Day Leaves In Middle of Transaction

The last few days at a job can be a cornucopia of not giving a heck. And when it comes to staying late on your last day, only the rapidly decaying, invisible bonds of convention are what keep people from just going screw this I'm out. After dealing with enough ridiculous customer demands it sure has got to feel good to just leave in the middle of a customer interaction.

Customer Thinks Electronic Payment Works By Putting Paper Checks In Computer

I mean, hey, technology can be more disorienting and generally perplexing for some folks more than others. In this case though, the confusion runs so deep, it's so profound, that it's almost wholesome. It's like how can you be "mad" at someone who legitimately thinks that the way to submit an electronic payment is through putting physical paper checks into their computer? It's impossible. Impossible to be mad at that. For some more gold from the tech support world, check out this lazy manager who got caught lying, and then the employe who ended up getting promoted in the process

Man oh man, they must've been having quite the day at McDonald's when they went and served this dude his "hash browns." Literally, all crunch. No substance to that sad crunch pack of nothingness. At least we got some comedy gold from his experience.

Customer Doesn't Trust Tech Support Employee's Advice, Lives To Regret It Weeks Later

There are far too many irrational, impossibly entitled customers out there that insist on not accepting tech support employees' advice. It's like they call in to tech support just to pitch a fit, and take out some of the stress they've accumulated through their personal lives, on completely well meaning individuals in the realm of tech support. It's a whole toxic circus act, and hopefully less and less people go about participating in it. In this particular tech support tale, we get to read about a stubborn customer who proactively wastes his own time. Pretty good stuff. For another tech support tale, check out the time that an owner fired the IT guy, and then how the business was completely sabotaged afterwards

Tattoo Artist Uses Bathroom Seven Times, Customer Leaves Smaller Tip, Tattoo Artist Complains

Look, we're not sure what was going on with the tattoo artist during this particular visit. Maybe they ate some demonically spicy Pad Thai that left their stomach in complete ruin the next day, and the bathroom was their only sanctuary. Or, maybe they were just trying to jack up how much money they'd make, by dragging out the length of the customer's session through being an aggressive regular at the restroom. Either way, it sounds like the customer thought it was fair enough to leave a smaller tip. Folks in the comments section seemed to be in agreement over the customer's decision.
