Employee on Last Day Leaves In Middle of Transaction

Unfortunately, an element present throughout this wild world is that celebrities can end up getting so lost in their own fame that they lose touch with reality. Yes, they lose touch with reality to such an extent that they end up forgetting to practice common social decency when the various opportunities present themselves. This can manifest in some pretty nasty behavior, and terrible mistreatment of folks that are just trying to do their jobs without being berated by people that think they're better than them. 

Fortunately, this video possesses a positive tone. A tone filled with hope and optimism for the state of humanity. You see, Adam Sandler takes the news from TikToker @dayanna.rodas, in stride, doesn't pitch a fit, doesn't try to use his celebrity status to cut in line, but instead just peaces on out for a different place. Plenty of folks in the comments section were keen on praising both Dayanna Rodas and Adam Sandler for their respective behavior. It's nice to see someone with enough mindfulness and self respect not just give in to catering to a person's every demand because they're a celebrity. Check out some of people's nicest and nastiest celeb encounters over here if you're looking for some more celebrity gossip.

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

It's not an easy choice already, but slap on some wholly unaware customer service and you've got yourself a predicament. Impossible-to-win moments like this are a good reason why some customers cause scenes.

One Pound Cake Karen Furious After Getting What She Wants

What is there left to do after a customer gets exactly what they want? Does the customer apologize for their misconception? Do they just walk off with what they asked for? Absolutely not, what planet are you on? For some stupid reason, there's a type of customer who thinks it's well within their rights to be a total jackass about their own mistake. It's reminiscent of this guy who ordered exactly a pound of wings and got less, but at least it wasn't as bad as thisguy who demanded no ice and got less than that.
