Hotel GM Ejects Terrible Customers for Their Nonsense

Getting pushed around at your job by awful customers is one of the worst parts of any customer-facing job. That's why it's so damn satisfying to see your boss actually stand up for you and deliver a finishing blow. Some bosses are incompetent, but more sympathetic ones can save your skin.

Customer Demands a 500 MB plan Instead of Existing 16 GB Plan

On one hand, having to call customer service, especially for a telecommunications company, can be a time wasting slog. On the other hand, some customers just call customer service for an opportunity to scream at someone. In this case, this woman would rather scream and demand a 500 MB plan rather than actually listen, so things didn't exactly end in her favor.

Woman calls a call center and demands a 500 MB plan because she thinks it is bigger than 16 GB and she gets it.

Entitled Karen Demands ID Check, Turns Out She Has An Expired License

Sometimes people manage to play themselves, and the results are satisfying. Anyone who works in retail or the service industry can recall a time when they had to deal with an entitled customer. Rarely these interactions end in the favor of the employee, but sometimes they do, like this time a woman freaked out at Chuck E. Cheese, or the time this Karen ended up paying for her coupon.

Karen Gets Angered By Employee Getting Coffee, So She Clocks Out Just For Her

You better believe that an older woman at a gated community club could literally get offended by the prospect of an employee grabbing a cup of coffee. We applaud such a graceful solution that left a Karen so goddamned angry over nothing but her own misplaced sense of superiority.

Starbucks Customer Holds Stranger's Hand In Line, Ends Up Scoring Free Frappuccino

A young woman tweeted out a wonderful, wholesome little encounter she had with another customer at Starbucks. Sounds like the guy was with his wife and having a great day, and his day got even better when he proceeded to hold hands with a couple strangers and score a free drink in the process. A solid example of turning an awkward situation into a great day.

Bilingual Cashier Turns the Tables on Rude Customer

We're a fan of any story where a rude customer fails to get away with being miserable to a retail employee who's done nothing wrong. We're also fans of surprises and drama where people get super pissed, double-down and make even bigger asses of themselves. For a strikingly similar story where a customer bad-mouthed an employee in a different language before having the tables turned, check this out.

Cashier Lives Retail Dream, Tells off a Karen and Lives

"Can I speak to your manager" type customers get the full ire of the internet, and even their own children. This instance in particular sure is a rare sight to behold. In all of the crazy stories we hear of massively entitled people being complete jerks to anyone in retail, almost never do these wild customers ever get a piece of someone's mind. And not only that, this employee actually got away with it. Amazing.
