Pizza Delivery Employee Keeps Failing Same Customer

This pizza delivery employee couldn't seem to catch a break. The poor guy just stumbled from one fail into the next. Fortunately, it sounds like everything ends up working out for him with his especially unlucky customer. Probably best that the two dudes go their own separate ways.

Owner Levels With Customer Who Complains Over Dollar Taco

When this guy complained over a taco, the owner got realistic with him about what it costs to sell one taco for a dollar and change, especially when you bring credit card charges into it. Sometimes folks have unreasonable demands, and these entitled people need to abandon their nonsense. For a real good one, here's an entitled mom who lashed out when her babysitter got a better job.

Owner explains to customer why his dollar taco wasn't amazing | Chino Tacos REVIEWS OVERVIEW ABOUT 2 months ago Got street taco 1.68 and had 5 piece beef on Horrible service. Not good amount pay.

Waiters Share Valentine's Day Disasters They Witnessed

Someone on AskReddit asked for waiters to dish out the biggest Valentine's Day disasters they witnessed. Can't imagine having to share a room with some of these arrestingly awkward fallouts between people out on dates. It's certainly a holiday ripe for romantic fails.

Someone on AskReddit asked for buffet workers to share the very best and worst of their horror stories. The following snapshots of meals and adults having full-fledged childlike tantrums would make anyone's stomach turn.

IKEA Employees Share The Worst Meltdowns They've Seen

IKEA employees are sharing the most impressive or overwhelmingly discouraging meltdowns they've seen from families and couples shopping in their store. There is something about IKEA that really puts a couple's relationship to the test. If you're really serious about someone, you might as well plan a date to IKEA to see if the relationship is going to stand the test of time.

Client Demands Unblocked Spam Filter, Regrets His Decision

There's nothing quite like that sweet "I told you so feeling" you get when a customer gets exactly what they wanted and learns that they screwed up. It feels good to drink in the visceral feeling of an outsmarted horrible customer. Customers are often wrong, but too few of us don't give a rip, so this kind of interaction is as rare as it is sweet.

People's Imaginative Sentences for Food Crimes

Well this is definitely one of those fun AskReddit threads that the internet was made for. Someone asked people to imagine what kinds of sentences a judge would give out to people that were being punished for actual food crimes, in a food court. Things like stealing all of your SO's fries and straight up biting into a Kit Kat bar, are being recognized as the wrongful behavior that they are.

"Legend" In Support Department Gets Called Out For Whining Too Much

If you've got an established reputation as being a "legendary whiner" amongst the customer service/support department, it's probably best to put a lid on it for future complaints. It sounds like this dude made it his mission to bombard the support department with as many complaints as he could hatch up. What a nightmare.

Prick Customer Publicly Shames Target Employee, It Backfires

Every once and a while one of those stories come along that restore our faith in humanity, before that same fragile faith is quickly crushed again by some new and discouraging headline. Well, at least we can enjoy this deeply satisfying tale of goodhearted people banding together to fundraise a $30K vacation for "Target Tori."

Apparently Tori was mistreated and generally bombarded with BS by a rude customer over a damn toothbrush. He tried to publicly shame Tori, and it backfired in the best kind of way. 

You can check out the GoFundMe for Tori over here if you're curious on how things played out.

Karen Mistakes Nametagged Dude for Employee, He Rolls With It

The mighty hubris of another horrible customer comes crashing down. For whatever reason, some customers really hold onto that "customer is always right" approach even when they're told that that they're not actually talking to an employee. Irate customers mistake random people for employees all the time, and the results are wonderful.

Karen Orders Around Random Guy Who She Thinks Is Deaf Employee

Every once in a while the wild Karen will mistake a stranger for an employee and direct their abuse at a fellow customer. while that doesn't sound like much of an improvement, the lack of professional courtesy frees up their target to say whatever they want to back. The extra level of dramatic irony makes stories like these all the sweeter.

Smart Employee Gets Fake Fired to Prank Awful Customers

This young employee asked whether it was wrong to toy with the emotions of overly dick-ish customers by getting fake fired in front of them. It seems like a pretty harmless practice and gets bad customers to rethink their roles. We wonder what would happen if a customer just said "good!" People have ways of dealing with bad customers like this flight attendant who handled a problem flyer or this donut shop owner responding to a bad review with humility.
