Lady Screamed at Me For Not Cutting Her Fabric.. I Don’t Work at Jo Ann’s

Old lady accosts woman at fabric store and demands she cut her fabric... She doesn't work there

Accidentally approaching a stranger in a store, assuming that they work there — we've all done it — but it's how you handle those next embarrassing seconds that define your true character. Sure, most of us are most likely to blush and mumble some apology under our breath as we carefully back away and retreat to die in a hole somewhere; the bolder among us are going to be more like to laugh at ourselves for our mistakenness.

Police Accuse Delivery Driver of Working For Crime Syndicate Because He Delivered Them a Pizza

Working as a delivery driver can be a hell of an experience. Consistently driving around and interacting with people on the threshold of their homes exposes you to a lot of experiences you'd probably rather not have witnessed; there's a reason why there's no shortage of crazy stories from delivery drivers floating around the wider web. People are strange, that's just a fact, and the more of them you interact with in a day, the more likely you are to encounter someone in uncomfortably close prox…

Frustrated Karen Gets Customer Fired From a Store Where He Didn't Even Work

This guy was fired from a store he didn't even work at after an enraged Karen insisted on his termination. He posted to Reddit's popular r/IDontWorkHereLady in order to share his story. Thanks to retrogressive policies like “The customer is always right" we have conditioned all of these entitled people in the world to think that they can get everything their way. The sad thing is that they are often completely right and they have this worldview reinforced time and time again by constant arse ki…

Security Guard Thinks That He's Being Relieved, It's Actually His Boss Returning Home

A comically confused security guard saw a fellow security guard walking into one of the resident's apartments and decided to take action. He knew that this ‘new guy’ was here to relieve him and was acting out of line. When the property manager arrived they were quick to set the record straight and identified the ‘new guy’ as a tenant of the apartment complex. Oh, and they were superior in the chain of command to the security guard and essentially their boss. When it came time to interview for a…

Supermarket Karen Assaults Kid Helping Their Disabled Parent, Arrested, Cries in Court

This bewildering “Supermarket Karen” decided that she needed help from one of the store's personal shoppers. Except the store didn't have personal shoppers because that hasn't been a thing in grocery stores since like 1930 or something. She approached the “personal shopper” who was helping a woman seated in a wheelchair and began waving her list in their face and demanding her own service. To her abject horror, the personal shopper refused to divert her attention away from the other customer an…
