'This store needs serious help': Entitled shoppers leave bad reviews for stores for petty reasons

'This store needs serious help': Entitled shoppers leave bad reviews for stores for petty reasons

Writing a bad review for a restaurant won't help much unless you just want to vent. If you want the whole world to know that you had a bad experience, you're certainly entitled to do that. In a world where many establishments specifically ask customers to review their business, it's never been easier to lodge a complaint. However, as u/Fatastic_Captain highlighted in their post to an anti-Karen subreddit, a lot of shoppers are foiled by their own mistakes. For example, one person left a one-sta…

'She's trying to overcharge me!': Fast food employee and manager bewildered by customer who won't pay an extra penny for meal

'She's trying to overcharge me!': Fast food employee and manager bewildered by customer who won't pay an extra penny for meal

Every penny counts , according to this customer. A debate stirs up every few years over the abolishment of the penny. The humble one-cent coin is rather useless in today's day and age. Gone are the days of penny candy---even dollar stores are quickly becoming $3-$5 stores. There's very little you can purchase for a dollar, and with the current rate of inflation, there's little hope that it'll improve any time soon. Back to the penny debate: every so often, people will petition to get rid of the…

'We have rules': Moped driver gets deported from Bali after refusing to pay small traffic fee

Of all the reasons to get kicked out of a country , this might be the most embarrassing. No vacation goes 100% perfectly—there are always a few hiccups.

Then there are bigger issues, like that one family member who forgets their passport at home, and remembers once they're at the airport. It's not every day you encounter problems like this, though. A traveler got depo…

'I hung up': Caller learns an important lesson after impolite words to service rep

We should have the expectation as a society that it's ok to deny someone service for being impolite to staff. This might actually teach people to be respectful and treat other people with common decency rather than with abject entitlement. Of course, as with anything else, there are grey areas and blurred lines and you might just end up talking to some egotistical service manager who is having a bad day. Still, professional courtesy should prevail even if they're not giving you the same. This c…

'She won...': Passenger on a short flight is sat next to woman who proceeds to portray the epitome of ‘bad’ airplane edict

'I absolutely know I’m in the legal right': Woman closes gate to lake access on her private property, entitled neighbors impersonate fake HOA to intimidate

When you purchase a property, do you intend to follow all the unwritten rules that other neighbors feel “grandfathered” into? What if those rules get your car dinged up or your dog loose?
