Entitled golfer tells clubhouse employee how to do his job, employee makes sure he gets charged more money: 'Enjoy the $40 fee'

Working at a fancy golf club likely means having to deal with obnoxious wealthy folks on a regular basis. This dude must really love that sport to continue enduring the job for over two years in exchange for mediocre pay and some free time on the course. Now, when you have been working in any field for over two years, you probably do not enjoy a random person coming up to you and telling you how to do your job well. Well, that's what happened to this clubhouse employee when an entitled Kevin de…

'I'm running late': Impatient Karen traveler gets called out for shoving passengers on TSA line

'I'm running late': Impatient Karen traveler gets called out for shoving passengers on TSA line

Airport security lines are not built for the entitled and the impatient, yet somehow, these folks still choose to travel all the time. Of course, this means that the rest of us have to inevitably suffer as a result. Look, the reality is no one wants to be waiting in the security line (if you enjoy waiting in line, then there is something wrong with you), but when you're waiting in line with a Karen, the experience becomes so much more painful. Now, let this serve as a PSA to the Karens of the w…

Karen gets fined $700,000 for cutting down neighbor's 200-year-old sequoia tree: 'I assume they had to sell their house to pay it off'

Karen gets fined $700,000 for cutting down neighbor's 200-year-old sequoia tree: 'I assume they had to sell their house to pay it off'

This lady paid the price for her egregious mistake. That's an understatement considering she and her family had to sell their house and move back to their old neighborhood in order to pay the steep fine for trespassing and cutting down her neighbor's tree. It turns out that the tree that annoyed her so much was a rare 200-year-old sequoia. I guess you could say she was barking up the wrong tree. This thread was posted to Reddit's r/ProRevenge subreddit by u/j3r3my_r_c00k , who explained how the…

salary boss antiwork employee drama job work coworkers Horrible Bosses hourly employee reddit thread Reddit company business entitled people employment in the workplace - 35583749

Boss promotes all hourly employees to salary, workers find out 6 months later that he lied: 'Because he was now “salary,” we didn’t see compensation for those extra hours'

It sounds like this boss isn't going to have his job for much longer. These hourly employees work for a nonprofit where they do manual labor outside all day long. Their boss announced to them that they all were being promoted to salaried employees, and the team couldn't have been more excited . Who wouldn't be happy about a promotion? Being salaried means you can finally take PTO time without the guilt of taking a day off for yourself and being unpaid. That's a huge win for the OP (Original Pos…

Office Karen picks a fight with coworker for making too many elaborate lunches: 'She doesn't have a right to demand that'

Office Karen picks a fight with coworker for making too many elaborate lunches: 'She doesn't have a right to demand that'

This Karen had the audacity to tell her coworker to stop making great lunches… Of course, the root of this was envy, which is the root of so many office conflicts we have covered here at FAIL Blog. In this instance, however, the Karen coworker was the spouse of another employee at the company, who is on the same team as the coworker who cooks well and often makes extra food for her teammates. It's not that the Karen wanted some of the extra food herself. It's that she felt threatened by her cow…

'Ok boss, let's see what ya got': Call center Karen argues with new manager for 5+ hours to get extra day of PTO

'Ok boss, let's see what ya got': Call center Karen argues with new manager for 5+ hours to get extra day of PTO

Trying to negotiate with a Karen employee can come at a price. In this instance, that price was time. This Karen, who was actually referred to as Kay in this Reddit thread, thought she could argue her way into getting an extra holiday off while her coworkers were expected to go to work. She was not able to merely request PTO because she had already used all of her days. Since her new manager, Dan, seemed a bit kinder than other supervisors, she thought she could get away with this. Dan, however…

'You owe me money!': Employee wrongfully fired for missing shift he requested off months in advance, causes a scene when entitled boss withholds final paycheck

This entitled boss got the karma she deserved. She spent most of her time bragging to her hourly employees about how rich she is, including being upset that her 3.5 million dollar house 'only' sold for 3.3 million, complaining that her daughter totaled her luxury car only to buy her a brand new one immediately, and so on. Well, the OP (original poster) worked as a chef at her fancy restaurant. He was struggling financially, as he and his girlfriend lived in a small apartment and were expecting…

‘Get your story straight’: Man backs into stranger's car while texting and driving, claims to the insurance company that he wasn't even in the car, leading to a pursuit of evidence

‘Get your story straight’: Man backs into stranger's car while texting and driving, claims to the insurance company that he wasn't even in the car, leading to a pursuit of evidence

We might not like to acknowledge this, but as grownups, we sometimes have to own up to our own mistakes. Being an adult means that we can't just ignore our mistakes, hoping that they will go away on their own, and we definitely cannot lie and try to drop them on other people. Unfortunately, a lot of adults try to back out of their mistakes when it comes to everything that happens on the road – breaking the rules, road rage, and even hitting other cars, all of these make the road feel like a gia…

'The hotel is sold out': Karen lies about booking reservation, demands refund, front desk agent doesn't fall for her tomfoolery

If you're looking for a common area where Karens love to throw tantrums, look no further than the concierge desk at a hotel chain. The complaints tend to be of a similar variety. Perhaps the wifi isn't working or the mediocre complimentary breakfast is, in fact, mediocre. Perhaps the room is “too small” despite fitting the exact online description on the hotel website. Or perhaps the Karen made an error and is trying to blame everyone else for said error. That is one of the possibilities behind…

Karen claims resident's backyard is her property, neighbor proves otherwise: 'She tried to tell me I parked illegally on my own property'

Karen claims neighbor's backyard is her property, neighbor proves otherwise: 'She tried to tell me I parked illegally on my own property'

In every neighborhood, there is one resident who somehow thinks they are entitled to more property than they actually own. Oftentimes, this person has been living in the area longer than anyone else and therefore thinks they can get away with stretching the truth. No one wants to start a feud, so no one argues with them. However, all this does is give that resident a false sense of authority, and who knows where that can lead them? The next thing you know, they are claiming rights to your entir…

'I'm going to sue you all and get all of you people fired': Entitled Karen blames movie theater employees after disruptive kids get thrown out

Who doesn't love it when a Karen tries to blame others for her own bad parenting? This lady left her demon children at the movie theater late at night, where they broke the rules and caused a scene by hopping from one theater to the next and disrupting each screening. Of course, they were warned on several occasions and of course, because they are entitled kids, they did not adhere to said warnings. They ended up getting thrown out of the establishment and forced to wait outside for their Karen…

Customer insists flooring installer does it their way, gets exactly what they asked for: 'I got paid to remove the work that I just got paid to install so I can get paid to install it again'

With so much information accessible at the tips of our fingers, it's easy for anyone to think that they're an expert. Without realizing it, they're missing the context, experience, and knowledge of the framework that's used to properly define the information they think they're an authority in—all things that an actual expert would know and possess. Of course, when you're delivering a service to clients, they're going to want to do things their way. But, as the customer, it's important to know w…

The story below is an account of a frustrated worker. The original poster (OP) goes to Reddit to ask for guidance on whether his employer is infringing on his fundamental rights as an employee.
