Karen Demands 8-Minute Hard Boiled Egg, Gets Reality Check Instead

You gotta love it when the reality checks are served up to the people that need them the most, for free. This particular wild Karen was having a moment about the hard boiled eggs not being boiled long enough. She decided that the 7 minute and 10 minute hard boiled eggs just weren't going to cut it. So, naturally, she went ahead and gave a hard working hotel employee a hard time about it. Well, fortunately there was another hotel guest around who had no problem calling her out for the absurd entitlement. Check out more entitled people with their audacious demands over here

This guy was certainly in over his head when he tried to collect a refund from a hotel with a crappy excuse. He wasn't ready for them to have the camera evidence to debunk his little scam.

Hotel Guest Refuses To Be Reasonable, Gets Kicked Out

Gotta love it when the customer gets rightfully fired. This particular hotel guest refused to be reasonable at all when it came to their checkout time. Even after the pregnant, exhausted concierge met them in the middle, they still proceeded to repeatedly complain and harass them. So, the concierge decided it was time for them to leave. Seems like the very fair and right move to make.

Impressive Towel Arrangements that Deserve a Shower of Praise

It's a shame that these were eventually used to dry an ass. It shouldn't occur to someone to make an gorilla out of a towel, but we at least appreciate the skill involved in making it possible. Sure it's frivolous, but kinda cool. The hotels we're used to staying in, we're just lucky if the towels are there.

Fun and cool animal towel arrangements.
