‘He wanted to use my art for free’: Manager throws a fit when he learns overworked artist quit their job and took their art with them

Being an artist is not an easy profession, and even less so these days. Every day artists fight what seems like a never-ending fight for their rights and their art so that it will not be used in a way that hurts them or their livelihood. They always have to be extremely cautious with how, when, and where they expose their art to other people. Like this artist on Reddit, who shared their experience with volunteering their art at a college club. The artist told Reddit about the entitled club pres…

‘You don’t own this street': Demanding neighbors claim ownership of neighborhood parking, man parks a broken-down car in front of their house for 6 months straight as payback

‘You don’t own this street': Demanding neighbors claim ownership of neighborhood parking, man parks a broken-down car in front of their house for 6 months straight as payback

Living in an area with little to no parking spaces can get extremely frustrating very fast. Having to wander around the street for 15 minutes after work just to find a parking space, which is usually at least another five-minute walk back to your home, is a routine none of us want to go through. That obviously leads to people sometimes parking in front of other people's houses, simply because that is the only free space they managed to find. Now, I get that this could be annoying for the people…

'I say, she can't take back what happened': Estranged step-mom tries to weasel her way into the wedding party of the step-daughter she ignored for 11 years, Father gets upset when bride puts her foot down

We all know the story of Cinderella and her wicked stepmother (and step-sisters). It was heart-wrenching to see such a wholesome girl be cast aside by someone who was, at least supposed to be her mother figure. But, that was just a fairytale and, of course, it has a happy ending. That being said, fairytales have some aspects of real life in them…

Top Choosing Beggars of the Week (February 18, 2024): 'Please be my personal assistant with no guaranteed pay'

Sure, desperate times call for desperate measures, but no one anticipated this level of desperation. It's funny to see where the choosing beggars of the world decide to reveal themselves online. It's often on online marketplaces, social media direct messages, and job site postings. However, regardless of what they want and regardless of where they post, these individuals have no self-awareness, too much confidence, or all of the above. The following collection of this week's top choosing beggar…

'Chili dog [but] sub chicken noodle soup for chili': 20+ servers share the strangest orders from difficult customers

Some customers are so particular with their orders one has to wonder why they went to a restaurant in the first place. If you're going to be that difficult, it will be a much better use of everyone's time if you stay home and make your own food. Part of going to a restaurant means choosing from the options that have been presented to you (they call it a menu). It's one thing if you have an allergy or would like to make an easy adjustment to an order. However, it's quite another thing to request…

'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'…

'Best dollar I've ever wasted': Entitled Karen demands 'handouts' after a generous gas station patron gives money to a beggar, hilarious pettiness ensues

For some reason, the Karens of the world feel a sense of self-fulfillment when they bully everyone around them, stomping on the necks of every minimum wage worker that they can get their claws into. The unlucky few that get caught in the destructive path of a rampaging Karen often find themselves finding every desire to knock them down a few pegs, which is exactly what the gas station patron in our next story managed to pull off.

Entitled Costco Kevin cuts the line, gets booted to the back: 'When your enemy is making a mistake, let them'

There is nothing like watching a line-cutter get some much-deserved karma. As much as we'd like this kind of circumstance to be a regular occurrence, the reality is that these moments of justified comeuppance are few and far between. So when these rare but special moments do arise, we have to embrace them wholeheartedly and remember the feeling of warmth that we feel when entitled people feel the wrath of karma rearing its head.

Traveler forced to unpack every single box after customs officer cleverly complies with his demands to 'proceed by the book'

Have you ever heard the expression, ‘You catch more flies with honey than you do with vinegar'? The best example of what this statement signifies is found in the story that follows. OP establishes the scenario at the beginning of the story. OP is employed by the customs department. As such, a great deal of the day's events hinge on whether those who cross the border assist border patrol agents in carrying out their duties or make their life more difficult by disobeying them. The story begins wi…

'That's not even my job': Woman demands delivery guy shovel snow from her driveway, he decides to leave her a snowy message instead

As a working adult, there is one lesson about work you usually learn the hard way, which is to never let anyone push you into doing work that is not part of your job description. If you agree to even a small job that is something you are not getting paid to do, you will probably end up doing a lot more, without being rewarded for it. This is why the OP in this Reddit story was probably not in a rush to do what a customer asked for. That and the fact that the customer was incredibly entitled and…

‘I will never work for people like you’: Manager offers candidate a job after initial hire falls through, as payback she takes the job but doesn't show up to work

It should go without saying that job interviewers should pay the same amount of respect to the interviewees as they expect to be getting themselves. Unfortunately, that is often not the case. For some reason, the people who are there to hire tend to think they are more important than those who are looking for a job, and so they disregard them, even to their faces. Like the person who shared this story on Reddit. The OP was interviewing for a job, and the interviewer couldn't have been more disr…

'Not my problem, now leave': Retail manager puts Karen in her place when she blames him for her cancelled and unpaid cell service

At certain times in your life—particularly when things have gone sideways—it's important to take ownership of the fact that your own actions and decisions are the things that got you there. Unfortunately, most of us struggle with this and, as a matter of self-preservation, will seek to displace blame towards anyone or anything that we can point a finger at. Sometimes, this displacement is plausible, reasonable even, but at other times, it can get unreasonably ridiculous… Tell me again, Carl, ab…

‘DO NOT use this company!!!!’: Karen inputs wrong address for flower delivery, blames company for the mistake, owner claps back

Who hasn’t come across an entitled Karen who seems to blame everyone else for their mistakes? Sure, this flower company should have delivered Karen’s order much sooner, but perhaps all of that could have been prevented if Karen had inputted the correct address on the order in the first place. No matter how hard she tries, and you will see that she did try, Karen has no one to blame for that egregious error but herself. This thread was posted to Reddit’s r/F***YouKaren subreddit and includes the…

'Entitled woman is fuming at how loud I am': Library assistant loudly eats nachos during meeting with trustees because 'it's policy'

This worker shared a day in the life of their job as a library assistant . Though it seems like a whimsical job, there's apparently much more to working in a library than meets the eye. This person writes that they had jobs at two different library branches. One of these jobs was a piece of cake, while the other was home to some rather haughty trustees. As u/localanimenerd shared in their malicious compliance story , they've realized that one trustee in particular seems to dislike them. The sto…
