Entitled Boomer barges through the employee entrance to ask prep cooks to make a dinner reservation for him: '[It was] 5 hours before we open'

The kitchen in a restaurant can be a dangerous place. Hot pans, sharp knives, and fast-moving line cooks lie at every turn–so it's certainly no place for an entitled Kevin to make a dinner reservation.

'Bought a head of lettuce and ate it... over the sink': 25+ Single people admit the most uncool meals they've ever concocted

For single folks, “meal” is such a strong word. Making a “meal” requires time, effort, and possibly a stovetop. When you have a partner, you tend to want to make them beautiful meals with garnishes, or hearty meals that take hours to make (since it's a labor of love). When you're a single dude , though, all bets are off. Any food is a meal if you believe in yourself. Lately, when I don't feel like cooking for my single self, I make “charcuterie dinner.” It includes strawberries, pineapple, a ti…

'I wasn't going to be giving [a tip] based on the service': Theme park visitor is told by staffer at self service restaurant that they needed to tip

'I wasn't going to be giving [a tip] based on the service': Theme park visitor is told by staffer at self service restaurant that they needed to tip

Tipping culture is getting weird. These days, in the mid 2020s, it seems like a tip is requested or required for nearly every service. At the same time, there's a lot less human interaction required for many restaurants and supermarkets. Instead of having a cashier ring up your groceries, you probably do that yourself at a self-service kiosk. After you scan your stuff, you bag your own items. You never need to interact with another person at all! And at a lot of fast-food establishments, you no…

Entitled Karen guest bosses around host at dinner party, host gets back at her with utensil mixup: 'I use that as a backscratcher'

It's always baffling when a house guest decides they can boss their host around. It takes a specific kind of entitled Karen-level audacity to suddenly act like you make the rules in a space that is clearly not yours. Well, this lady would come to regret trying to assert her authority in her friend's space. She started to criticize practically every choice her friend's partner made when it came time to serve their spaghetti dinner, a meal she did not make by the way. She insisted on using a “pro…

'My 19 topping pizza': 20 Frightfully flavored pizza pies

Pizza is one of the most universally beloved foods (with the exception of these 20 pizzas, which are not loved). Sorry not sorry, there's just no saving most of these pies from their fate: the garbage can. I'm happy for the person who ordered the 19-topping pizza (first photo!). I really am. If you want to turn your pizza into a chopped salad of sorts, that should be your prerogative. Even better, this person got all of those extra toppings for free! That's the kind of order that makes the owne…

'Charged for dinner?': Friend insists on "$7 per person" for last-minute dinner invite

'Charged for dinner?': Friend insists on "$7 per person" for last-minute dinner invite

Have you ever, in your whole life, had a friend charge you money to eat at their house ? I really haven't, with the exception being takeout food. If you order takeout with your friend group, someone's going to have to send out those Venmo requests for that pad thai. But that's different than inviting your friends over for an off-the-cuff dinner, and then insisting they need to pay for it the next day . It's not always cheap to host a party: all those ingredients, beverages, and decorations can…

'A lady... brought in an entire rotisserie chicken to watch "Infinity War"': 30+ Unexpected movie theater snacks that viewers snuck past concession stand employees

If you've only ever snuck candy into a movie theater , you haven't lived. These people have snuck in full meals! For many of us, sneaking candy into the movie theater is a way of life. At least in my town, it almost seemed designed that way. The movie theater was in a strip mall, and just two stores down was a dollar store that had a massive candy section at the entrance. It was such a blatant candy display that I wondered if they'd partnered with the theater or something. In reality, they were…

'We won't serve you until you pay the bill': Dine and dash family returns to restaurant in attempt to do it again, manager makes sure they pay what they owe

'We won't serve you until you pay the bill': Dine and dash family returns to restaurant in attempt to do it again, manager makes sure they pay what they owe

Every restaurant or store has to deal with people attempting to leave without paying. In stores, it is easier to prevent people from doing it, because they have to leave the premises with a physical item at hand, and it is pretty simple to track the items and make sure they are not stolen. In restaurants, is it a bit more complicated, since a customer consumes the food before they actually pay for it, so they can just up and leave when no one is looking, and never pay a dime. Surely every resta…

'I had to politely tell her how ridiculous it looked': Kid prevents parent from baking disastrous TikTok recipe

Today is a great day to remember not to believe everything you read online. This is especially true if you're swiping through social media apps like TikTok and saving the recipes for later. A lot of them might look good on camera, but they won't actually taste good. I actually do sometimes make TikTok recipes but only by first looking up a proper recipe for it elsewhere. For example, there was a parmesan potato recipe going around that looked excellent, so I just looked up a proper recipe onlin…

20 Cooking Mishaps for Wannabe Chefs Who Can’t Catch a Break

Nice going there, chef! If you're a viewer of The Bear but you can't cook to save your life, you may have found yourself pretending to be Carmy in your tiny kitchen as you boil a pot of pasta to complete imperfection. The truth is that no matter how many times you choose to mumble “yes, chef or ”no, chef" while you're cooking, some hopeless wannabe cooks simply are not capable of improvement. It's the same for folks who can't exercise via running. Some people are just not meant for it. After al…

'A friend's birthday dinner [cost] me $1100': Entitled rich friends throw lavish party without informing guests they will be charged $540 per person

There are plenty of conflicts that can cause a rift in adult friendships, but perhaps the most common one is money. Obviously, there are other worthy candidates such as difficulty with communication, differences in ideologies, and disagreements about significant others. However, how people deal with money can bring about cringeworthy interactions, upsetting revelations, and disturbing differences in opinion. For instance, here we have an adult male and his wife who were invited to their friend'…

‘What were you thinking?’: Man irresponsibly tests out his boyfriend's fish allergy during dinner, leading to a dispute at the table

Food allergies are no joke, and most of the time, no one treats them as jokes either. Whether it is schools with a ‘no peanuts' policy or gluten-free restaurants, there is so much awareness of food restrictions, that you can pretty much get by even with a life-threatening one. But you have to have a supporting surrounding, and people who are going to make sure you don't eat anything that could be bad for you. This Redditor shared his experience with his food allergy to fin fish and the way his…

When this newlywed told the internet they “could use some judgement” about their wedding, the internet did not hold back. They told the OP exactly what they thought about some pretty strange wedding plans. It's no secret that weddings are expensive. It's basically the first thing you learn when you start researching: the prices are outrageous for everything from the venue to the food to the DJ. Unless you're planning to throw on a tee shirt and elope from the local court house, you're probably…

‘Attendance is mandatory!’: Micromanaging boss forces entire team of employees to attend corporate Christmas dinner without their family

Being cheap is the worst quality one can possess. There are two kinds of cheapness: the kind that is endearing and has to do with being a financially responsible human being, and the one that is sometimes mocked and always hated. The story below is an account of a clever worker who came up with the perfect scheme to get even with his cheap boss. The manager, today known as the Grinch. decided to steal Christmas and force the entire staff to attend a corporate dinner. But as soon as the frustrat…
