Karen Goes Through Angry Mental Gymnastics Over Parking Space

The parking lot can bring out the very worst in someone. People can get all kinds of nasty, territorial, and straight up entitled over a parking space. In this case, we have an angry Karen who went out of her way to hassle an employee who was just trying to start up their work day, over a parking space that was rightfully their space to begin with. With that being said, picturing the look of pure and unadulterated rage on Karen's face when the manager closed the door when she was in the middle of her temper tantrum is enough to make one's heart glow with satisfaction.

The recklessness of blind ignorance is a mystifying thing to behold.

Waitress Assumes Customers Left, Eats Customer's Salad, Customers Return

At the start of this tumultuous tale it does seem as if we're about to read something very gnarly. Like, maybe some kind of stomach bug situation from a salad never meant for human consumption.

Just a panicked waitress fielding the daunting realization that she'd consumed a customer's salad, that was actually going to return.

Lady Claims To Know Apartment Owner, Gets Swiftly Outed

Nothing warms our hearts like seeing a blatant liar get caught up in their web of dumb lies. This lady sounds like she was a real entitled handful from the very start. She claimed to know the apartment owner, issued threats about the employee losing their job, and ultimately got disproven in record time.

Rude Customer Doesn't Realize He's Returning Collector's Item

Even after having the distinction explained to him, this dude just wasn't having it. It's one of those rare times when "the customer's always right" doesn't exactly benefit the customer. But he got what he wanted, so that's fine. It's like the time this customer ordered exactly a pound of wings and got less wings.

Guy Buys Suit of Armor, Ends Up Roleplaying as Manager

If only there could always be a threatening guy in a suit of armor for every single negative customer encounter. It's probably hard not to listen to anyone standing 6 foot 5 in a suit of armor. Sometimes the ol' manager switcheroo works out, like this entitled customer who came in after close and got kicked out by the "manager." It must feel pretty good to be someone's literal knight in shining armor.
