'15 other people saw it': Karen sends unkind message about coworker to entire department by accident, coworker reports her to HR

Always be careful who you're sending your messages to, especially at work! One would think this is a self-explanatory warning and not something that needs to be stated, but it turns out some coworkers out there really are that reckless. Here, we have a Karen coworker who liked to boss others around, especially this Redditor who was fully on her level within the hierarchy of their company. Karen told her to take lunch at 11 am, but something came up and OP switched lunch times with another emplo…

‘I had enough of her’: Banker threatens to quit but stays for a generous raise, puts in her two weeks shortly after anyways when new manager brings her to tears

Sometimes you need to quit because you're not getting paid enough for the work you do. Sometimes you are getting paid well for the work you do, maybe even over the usual market value for your position, but if the work environment is making you miserable, you still need to quit. Obviously, it's up to you, do whatever you want, but are you seriously okay with having to endure such a volatile place for such a a huge chunk of your life? One banker said enough is enough. She had been working at this…

'Don't be such a cry baby...': Mother uses son's credit card, spending $500, leading him to file charges

A family is made up of parents, a few children, and sometimes one or more pets. It is the parents' responsibility to raise their children, and it is the children's responsibility to take care of their pets. But what happens when the parents don't know how to take care of their kids and instead rely on the kids to take care of and support them? Well, OP has to deal with a similar scenario in the story below. OP is a twenty-two-year-old young adult. OP successfully carries out all of his adult ob…

'Let's get out of here': Entitled Karen customer throws tantrum over gymnastics suit, then tries to dash without paying

Whatever happened to decent customers with acceptable behavior? Everyone understands that people have their bad days or perhaps they're in a hurry and need something quickly. Still, no single person's busy schedule should allow for unacceptable comments and nasty rhetoric. This thread was posted to Reddit by u/Outrageous-Gene-607 , a teenager who now has a full understanding of the dark truth about the Karens of the world. OP's mother created hand-made gymnastics suits for a living, and one day…

'You expect me to work an 18 hour shift without extra pay?': Overworked bookkeeper finds a way to get even with upper management after their refusal to allow changes in work shifts

Working in a corporate setting sometimes means having to silently give in to senior management. Whether or not we agree with their business tactics is irrelevant; what matters is that we ease their burden by complying with all of their requests without causing any trouble. The story below is an account of a bookkeeper who works for a huge home improvement store. For whatever reason, despite the rigorous hours, upper management insisted for years that bookkeepers close and open the store. To put…

Karen demands anchovy-less Caesar salad because of fake food allergy: 'Hold the anchovies!'

At a certain point, ordering a specific dish without the vital components that make it that specific dish in the first place becomes pretty pointless. For example, if you order a cheeseburger without cheese, it's just a hamburger; and if you order eggs benedict without hollandaise sauce , that's just poached eggs on a bun; and if you order a Ceasar salad without anchovies, you're just going to get a few lettuce leaves and croutons on a plate.

‘I’m very busy and very important’: 20+ adult temper tantrums from entitled Karens, neighbors, and coworkers

‘I’m very busy and very important’: 20+ adult temper tantrums from entitled Karens, neighbors, and coworkers

Just like Peter Pan, some folks will never grow up. Sure, the idea of what it means to be a grown-up is mainly shaped by societal expectations. For instance, what do you mean I can’t have Pop-Tarts for breakfast or Pop-Tarts for dinner or Pop-Tarts at all times? Since I am technically an adult somehow, shouldn’t I be allowed to do whatever I want at this point? Clearly, many of us suffer from some form of arrested development. However, when these folks did not get what they wanted, they really…

‘A breath of fresh air’: Heartless Karen throws tantrum about homeless man who ‘stinks,’ kind hotel employee pretends he's a guest and gives him free room with a hot shower

What a world we live in where kindness is something we have to “sneak” into our place of employment. It takes a truly caring person to risk their job in order to do the kind thing—especially when it comes to the U.S. and its homeless population. Most of the rules and regulations go against helping a houseless person. You constantly see employees “shooing” away homeless people from their property as if they were nothing less than a rodent who wandered in. It's heartbreaking. But what are you sup…

'Your wife was intending to destroy my water lines during a winter storm': Several neighbors discover the neighborhood Karen is freezing pipes overnight, leaving them without running water

In a quiet neighborhood, there's a strange story about a neighbor who's a bit of a Karen, but not the loud type. Instead of causing a scene in public, she sneaks around at night, quietly planning her revenge. That is, until her neighbor caught her on video, promoting the OP to file a police report against her. Once the word got out in the neighborhood, it was soon revealed that the OP wasn't the only one dealing with Karen's mysterious actions. It turns out she's been sneaking around to...

Karen accosts flight attendant, scraps with pilot, gets kicked off plane

It's often the case that love blossoms from the most unexpected places, and you might think it surprising that this couple, a flight attendant and a pilot, would bond over a confrontation with an entitled Karen. The Karen was demanding that the flight attendant upgrade her to first class, mistaking her for a gate agent. This escalated to a point where the pilot of the flight, who was passing by for boarding, felt the need to step in. In her fury, Karen attempted to lash out at the pilot, which…

'I politely told her [no]… She kept yelling:' Karen mom thinks son is entitled to window seat during flight, demands unwilling woman switches with her, flight attendants put her in her place

If you have ever flown before, then you should be well aware of the in-flight edict. You can try and pull the ‘ole switcheroos with seating, nobody is really against that. But you need to approach it with zero expectations. You are not entitled to that seat switch. And if you are considering asking someone to switch seats with you, then you have to come to them with an upgrade, not a window seat for a middle, or ask for a front seat with more legroom and offer a middle seat by the bathrooms.

Guy wants someone to pay him to come and remove his dilapidated shed: 'It will need some attention'

We'd all like to think that we have something to offer to this world. If we didn't, what would be the point? While this is kind of a baited question, the easy answer is that there's more to life than your monetizable value, despite what society might otherwise try and tell you... So, go outside and smell a flower, for gosh sake, and stop overcomplicating a life that is already overcomplicated enough. Still, because of our obsession with our own value and the value of things in our possession, i…

'The customer is always right—I am the customer!': Entitled customer demands manager drop everything and rearrange store to her liking

Two basic rules are taught to us when we work in customer service. First of all, we should never presume that consumers will read the small print at the bottom of our signage. The second universal guideline is to never, ever concede that you are correct and the client is mistaken. The story below is an account of a frustrated arts and crafts store manager. OP has been managing the store for a while, and quite frankly, presumably has encountered an endless amount of difficult customers. However,…

'Spent $112.38 tonight for fish that wasn't done': Funny one-star reviews from Karen customers

It takes a certain kind of person to be a difficult customer at a restaurant; it takes another kind of person to go out of their way to write a completely off-base one-star review. These three reviews may all be referring to different kinds of restaurants: a taco place, a dog-friendly café, and a fancy restaurant. However, they also have a few characteristics in common: 1) they are poorly written, with grammatical errors all over the place; 2) it is clear from the get-go that the writers of the…

‘Pretty sure you’re not in the right place’: Entitled customer storms into a random store to complain about the Postal Service then returns a week later to file an 'official' complaint

Some like to complain, while others take pleasure in solving problems. However, for a strange reason, we always encounter the 50% of the population who get their kicks from criticizing and complaining about those around them. The account that follows is the story of an innocent bystander who was the target of an irate customer who was attempting to mail an item through the postal office. At this point, you probably think this is just another typical event. Unfortunately, it probably is. But thi…

These customers didn't let their poor social skills keep them from dining at restaurants . Instead, they showed up ready to eat food and interact with wait staff as minimally as possible. We all have days where we want to be left alone. Sometimes you just don't feel like interacting with people, and instead, you just want to curl up on your couch, order food delivery, and watch a movie. It's odd that apparently lots of people decide to go to restaurants when they're feeling antisocial. Why woul…
