'Just like that, I was unemployed': Game store exec fires employee for refusing to sell his teenage son a video game

'Just like that, I was unemployed': Game store exec fires employee for refusing to sell his teenage son a video game

This person was just trying to follow the rules . But that didn't matter at all to the store they worked for. At every job, there are specific rules that you have to follow. Sometimes you can bend the rules a bit to make your life easier. But some things are too important to mess around with. Age restricted items would probably fall under that second category. This person, u/PM_ME_UR_DIPLOMA, had a story for r/TalesFromRetail on this very subject. They write that while working at a video game s…

'It only cost me $10,000': 20+ out of touch comments made by rich people

Everyone has had that moment in a group setting when one wealthy person says something that's totally out of touch. Perhaps this is the first time you've realized they had a slightly different upbringing than you. Or perhaps this is the fifteenth time they've made a comment like this, and it's about time someone confronts them about it because it's getting increasingly uncomfortable for everyone involved. Look, everyone's come into contact with someone like this. It could be a boss, it could be…

'Stop locking your cars after 8pm': Top Karens of the Week (August 25, 2023)

For this week's edition of the top five Karen stories, we're bringing you lots of neighborhood drama and cruel customers. Thankfully, for many of these Reddit stories, the folks who were at the receiving end of all this nonsense were not afraid to clap back. Here's a little preview of what we're dealing with here: (1) we've got an entitled neighbor who doesn't like the noise from people locking their cars at night, (2) there's the Karen with a meat allergy who surprisingly took issue with a BBQ…

Top Karens of the Week (August 8, 2023)

Summer may have some people out and about, but that also means that the Karens of the world are ready to make a scene. As we all know, they tend to love a public setting to throw their tantrums. They often request to speak to the manager, and they always seek out preferential treatment. They also love causing grief for their neighbors or making assumptions about strangers or matters they couldn't possibly understand. After all, the world does revolve around the Karens of the universe. How can w…

Top Choosing Beggars of the Week (August 5, 2023)

Top 20+ Choosing Beggars of the Week (August 5, 2023)

It's remarkable how people can be demanding and desperate at the same time. One has to wonder what possesses these choosing beggars to be so audacious. Not that I am envious of this complete lack of self-awareness, but I do have to consider what life would be like if I had that level of confidence to just demand things with literally no leverage whatsoever. Perhaps there's a “nothing left to lose” mentality that comes with being a choosing beggar. Perhaps

'The mom is starting to realize she may have overreacted': Family insists on immediate help for bee sting, dorm employee embarrasses them

We can't all be calm under pressure. It's especially difficult to be calm when you're also hurting, as u/ihatevegtables shared in a story to r/MaliciousCompliance. They recall the time they were working a college move out day . If you aren't familiar with the concept, that's when you're a student living in a dorm, and you have to move out at an assigned time at the end of the semester. You have to pack everything up — clothes, mini fridge, text books — and toss it in a big bin on wheels. If you…

'It was tense when she walked in': Rude Karen pretends to be friends with the District Manager, gets put in her place when he shows up

Work in any customer-facing role, and at some point, you're bound to encounter someone demanding special treatment because they're friends with the owners or some upper manager. Nine times out of ten, these people are absolutely full of it, and mentioning their name to the owner or manager at a later date will be met with an eye roll, facepalm, or “Who?” No, this person isn't their friend; in some cases, they might be a mutual acquaintance, but what kind of friend would go into their friend's b…

'An anonymous individual began stealing my sandwiches': Dude accidentally feeds sandwich stealing child a really spicy sandwich

Being taught not to steal other people's things is a really important lesson to learn at a young age. The older you are when you learn this lesson, the more serious the consequences. For instance, if you go around stealing other people's sandwiches at the age of 9 years old, it seems a suitable punishment that one of those sandwiches might end up being hotter than the blazes of the burning sun itself. I feel like this is the best result if your parents, mentors, and teachers have somehow failed…

'The manager changed into a sport coat and came back over': Bar Manager and Owner defeats entitled parents complaining about sports playing in a 'Sports bar'

The brilliance of the manager putting the sport coat on before returning to the conversation as “the owner” is something that I wish I had been able to witness with my own eyes.

'You're a terrible manager!': Karen accosts random dude after incorrectly assuming he is the restaurant's manager, gets served

It turns out we might not be very good at doing a job that isn't actually ours, and that shouldn't come as much of a surprise, except to people like this Karen who refuse to listen to you when you tell them that you don't actually work there. Sure, we've all probably mistaken a complete stranger for an employee of the establishment we're patronizing, but continuing to insist that they must work there and are doing their job poorly after being corrected is downright insane. This college student…

'That is so selfish of you!': Karen neighbor gets mad at farmer for harvesting their crop that she wanted to steal

'That is so selfish of you!': Karen neighbor gets mad at farmer for harvesting their crop that she wanted to steal

In kindergarten, you learn that you can't have something just because you want it. Like when you wanted Stewart's red ball, but he refused to share, after taking it anyways and subsequently refusing to apologize, you probably found yourself in timeout in a tiny chair in the corner as negative reinforcement of the fact that you shouldn't take things that aren't yours… Wherever you are now, we hope you're doing well, and we hope that Stewart is no longer having to fend off bullies who want to tak…

'I proceed to lay my arm perfectly on top of his': Dude takes over woman's entire armrest, becomes the armrest

It is often said that you become that which you desire most—at least, I think so… I may be making this one up as, if it were true, I'd have turned into a chicken nugget by now. Regardless of whether this is actually an expression, this guy manifested it into existence when he felt entitled to take over the entire armrest between himself and a stranger while attending a theater performance. Normally this is a bad move. Sure, you might think that the space is there, so someone should use it—and w…
