This little interaction, real or not, was just what we needed to brighten up the day. Just picturing an elderly man making off with a big old TV, and having his granddaughter try to run cleanup on his forgetfulness is quite hilarious. Maybe he'll accidentally take a car next.

Customers That Were Spectacularly Wrong

Some customers assume that because customer service exists, they can just go right on with turning their brains off. That's not exactly how it works. A little common sense is required. And not only a little common sense, but how about some common decency as well? These tweets about customers being completely wrong, are a solid showcase in how the customer is certainly not always right. Yes, Karen can be wrong.

People Who Know Karens Explain What That's Like

The concept of a Karen is outlined by someone with crazy entitlement and a superiority complex, specifically targeted at anyone they deem "lesser than" such as servers and customer service reps. Anyone working retail sees people like this all the time, and their Karen behavior is so outrageous that they're like a cartoon. What people forget is that sometimes people have to live with them.

Customers have a long and storied history of asking for things that will actively do them harm, like this Karen who wanted donuts straight out of the fryer oil.

Anyway this lady asked for some real hot tea and she got it.

Good for this dude. After what sounds like a totally innocent mishap, where they went to the wrong Thai restaurant to grab their lunch, and weren't able to get over to the right Thai restaurant before getting back to work; they ultimately decided to make good on the ghosted order, days later.

This employee deals with cases of entitled and angry customers by pretending to get fired in front of the customers. It sounds like it's a prank of sorts, done so to maybe make the customers more aware of how they're treating people. You'd think that most people wouldn't feel too hot about being mean to someone just doing their job, right before they lose said job.

Jerkbag Gives Server Ultimatum, Ends Up Paying for 25 Beers

If you're gonna be really serious to your server and demand that they bring you a beer with every passing, then get ready for your wallet to explode.
