'Devoted' graphic designer refuses to take accountability for botched project, declaring: 'It's the customers who are at fault, not the design'

Working in graphic design means paying close attention to numerous small elements that come together to form a polished result. The manager in the story below is in complete shock. As a BigCo, OP is in charge of a few dozen agents. For quite some time, OP had been in need of a skilled graphic designer; therefore, when an opportunity arose and a qualified candidate was found, OP quickly hired her. As a modest thank you for joining the company, OP provided the new graphic designer with access to…

'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

‘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…

‘Get up, now’: Woman with disabilities gets told off by elderly lady who demands she give up her seat on the bus

Even though most people would go back to being kids in a heartbeat, becoming adults also has a lot of benefits. Especially being able to call your own shots, and do whatever you want to do whenever you want to do it, without having to answer to anyone. When I was a kid, the one thing I was so excited about adulthood was owning a car and not having to take the bus anymore. Now as an adult, even though I do have a car, I still find myself taking the bus to work, and I completely understand why yo…

Entitled dude wants to cut a 150 person line, gets shut down: 'A middle-aged man [had] a screaming, crying tantrum'

Some people weren't ever taught that they can't always have things their way—and it shows… These days, being a preferred platinum, premium, premier, or bumbercrum-level customer really doesn't mean much of anything. Companies don't even really go through much to disguise this, either. Back in the day, if you did enough business with a company to achieve bundersnoot-level status, they'd give you actual upgrades and treatment that meant something. These days, you'll be lucky to get a pen, but it'…

'I'm outta here...': Web developer leaves company high and dry after upper management shut down his concerns regarding launch of new product, company crumbles

The business world is not always kind. You are but a small component in this game. You should never feel too comfortable when you finally 'land' that job you believed would be the culmination of your desire since everyone can be replaced. What they fail to mention, though, is that occasionally—just occasionally—one cog is what keeps the entire empire afloat; without it, everything crumbles down.

'You reap what you sow': Resident trashes neighbor's garden, neighbor returns the favor with an upgrade, planting bamboo to overrun their property

We look forward to the time when we can afford to live alone. At last, we have space, privacy, and a plethora of other wonderful amenities that we wouldn't have believed possible in our twenties. But as we usually emphasize here, maintaining a cordial relationship with your neighbors is crucial. Lousy neighbors have the power to either make or break an apartment complex experience. However, what would happen if your neighbor considered your garden to be their own private dump? Is it possible to…

Karen has grave misunderstanding, tries to get out of paying for a tombstone: ‘She wants to keep the grave and not pay for it!’

We all want to keep things and not pay for them, but you can’t have it both ways. Here, we have a lady who literally tried to argue her way out of having to pay for a recently deceased family member’s grave. Her excuse was that she didn’t receive an official bill despite signing a collection letter over a month ago declaring when she would send payment. This thread was posted to Reddit’s r/EntitledPeople subreddit by u/According-Sugar-520 , who we’re sure has had to deal with delicate emotional…
