This customer seems to be upset that they made the wrong decision with their glasses, so they decided to take it out on the store that provided them with the glasses for free. The owner let them know what was up. The retail world is swimming with entitled people and their unreasonable demands, as well as entitled people who went full Karen. Sometimes ridiculous customers don't get their way, like this Karen who demanded to speak to a fellow customer's manager.

You never know how bad someone can get until you've seen an entitled person going full Karen.

Tech Support Calls Karen's Bluff, Deletes Her Website

Well, that is what she wanted, right? After a long stretch of bullying and threats, this employee finally called Karen on her word and got rid of her account.

It looks like this customer wanted a few yards of soil dumped into their wagon trailer, and were very serious about having ALL of it dumped into their wagon trailer. We'd have loved to hear the conversation that led to this. "No, it'll totally fit, just do it."

Frustrating Times Entitled People Went Full Karen

If you've ever worked in retail, been in the service industry, or have walked down the street, you've probably witnessed an infuriating time someone went full Karen. Someone displaying Karen behavior will act entitled, demand to see the manager, lie and scream to get what they want, however trivial it may be. Sometimes it doesn't work, like this time Tech Support called Karen's bluff and deleted her website or this time Karen lied about an eviction and lost in court.

Customer Turns the Tables on Demanding Karen

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.

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. The thought of giving a customer an extremely hot cup of liquid harkens back to the reality of the McDonald's hot coffee case, which no person working at a coffee place wants to repeat. Anyway this lady asked for some real hot tea and she got it.

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. It's hard to tell what this guy's goal was, but his words were the nails in the coffin.
