30+ People share the biggest public tantrums they've witnessed from adults: 'She actually stamped her foot and said we had ruined her Christmas'

Working retail gives you a fantastic seat center stage to bear witness to some of the most incredible performances, teeth-gritting rage complete with bulging temples and flying saliva—unfortunately, this show requires audience participation, and the rage is almost always directed at you… Never mind the fact that you're just a lowly cashier, literally the lowest ranking member in the organization… you're going to be the one to suffer the full wrath of their immature and impotent frenzy. The biza…

Impatient Male Karen driver yells at pedestrian in a quiet suburb, karma rears its head: 'He drove smack into [a] ditch'

Impatient Male Karen driver yells at pedestrian in a quiet suburb, karma rears its head: 'He drove smack into [a] ditch'

Sometimes, karma takes a while to come back with a vengeance, but other times, she chooses to show up just when she needs to… Here, we have a male Karen driver in a quiet suburb who could not stand the fact that road work was being done and was creating a minor traffic jam. A resident of the neighborhood explained that while the road work was minimal, there was a ditch in the area that could easily be avoided if cars were moving slowly and carefully enough… hence, the minor traffic jam. When th…

'I'm running late': Impatient Karen traveler gets called out for shoving passengers on TSA line

Airport security lines are not built for the entitled and the impatient, yet somehow, these folks still choose to travel all the time. Of course, this means that the rest of us have to inevitably suffer as a result. Look, the reality is no one wants to be waiting in the security line (if you enjoy waiting in line, then there is something wrong with you), but when you're waiting in line with a Karen, the experience becomes so much more painful. Now, let this serve as a PSA to the Karens of the w…

'She's pretty insistent on Karen': Husband refuses to let wife name their daughter 'Karen,' cue marriage drama

It's unfortunate that a meme can become so ubiquitous that it can almost break up a marriage. However, that's the power of the internet and pop culture, and if you have been anywhere close to the internet over the last five years, you have seen many a think-piece and many a joke about the name Karen. You likely have seen a ton of posts about Karen on this site alone (you're welcome). Well, apparently, this dude's wife did not get the picture and still insisted that their soon-to-be-born daughte…

Office Karen picks a fight with coworker for making too many elaborate lunches: 'She doesn't have a right to demand that'

Office Karen picks a fight with coworker for making too many elaborate lunches: 'She doesn't have a right to demand that'

This Karen had the audacity to tell her coworker to stop making great lunches… Of course, the root of this was envy, which is the root of so many office conflicts we have covered here at FAIL Blog. In this instance, however, the Karen coworker was the spouse of another employee at the company, who is on the same team as the coworker who cooks well and often makes extra food for her teammates. It's not that the Karen wanted some of the extra food herself. It's that she felt threatened by her cow…

'The hotel is sold out': Karen lies about booking reservation, demands refund, front desk agent doesn't fall for her tomfoolery

If you're looking for a common area where Karens love to throw tantrums, look no further than the concierge desk at a hotel chain. The complaints tend to be of a similar variety. Perhaps the wifi isn't working or the mediocre complimentary breakfast is, in fact, mediocre. Perhaps the room is “too small” despite fitting the exact online description on the hotel website. Or perhaps the Karen made an error and is trying to blame everyone else for said error. That is one of the possibilities behind…

'I'm going to sue you all and get all of you people fired': Entitled Karen blames movie theater employees after disruptive kids get thrown out

Who doesn't love it when a Karen tries to blame others for her own bad parenting? This lady left her demon children at the movie theater late at night, where they broke the rules and caused a scene by hopping from one theater to the next and disrupting each screening. Of course, they were warned on several occasions and of course, because they are entitled kids, they did not adhere to said warnings. They ended up getting thrown out of the establishment and forced to wait outside for their Karen…

'Give my son a black belt': Karate Karen throws tantrum after son is denied a black belt, instructors defend themselves

This Karen has never heard the word “no,” and apparently, neither has her son. it turns out that the most dangerous part about the Karens of the world is that there is a high likelihood that they will pass their toxic traits to their children. What this essentially means is that where there is a Karen parent, there is likely a Karen child ready to keep that entitled behavior going until they themselves have kids. So on and so forth. The dynasty of Karens will seemingly never end. Here, we have…

Male Karen gets thrown out of tattoo parlor, demands to speak to manager on social media, gets roasted: 'You were denied entry for several reasons'

There are certain people you never want to mess with: your barber, the lady at the Department of Motor Vehicles, whoever is cooking your food, and your tattoo artist. Obviously, the lattermost example does not apply to folks who don't want to get tattoos. However, for those who do, throwing a temper tantrum at the person who is about to imprint a permanent design on your body is not the wisest idea. Thankfully, this guy didn't get that kind of petty revenge. Instead, he simply threw this male K…

'The yellow line is where my responsibility ends': Woman "pushes her luck" to get groundskeeper to cut back all her weeds

This woman had some questions for a local gardener —if only she had been a little nicer about it. The older I get, the more my respect grows for people who do physical labor. To say it's hard work is an understatement. Have you ever watched a garbage collector work for a minute or two as they toss bag after bag of trash into the truck, and then you realize they do this impressive feat for eight hours straight ? The same goes for landscapers and gardeners. Though some of them use riding mowers,…

'Do I look like I set the prices?': 20+ Customer complaints that retail workers never want to hear again

Cashiers are really tired of hearing the same quips over and over from their customers. They're so bored by them that they don't even react anymore. For example, a cashier will be ringing up a customer's clothes, and one of the shirts doesn't scan. They have to walk out into the store to find that item and get the right price. All the while, the customer is joking around , saying that if the shirt doesn't have a price tag on it, it must be free! Hahahaha! Isn't that just so funny and original?…

Builder gets back at Karen celebrity for trying to obstruct their building site: 'I went ahead and called the police'

We have this tendancy as a society to assume that just because someone is notably successful in one area that they must be a paragon of humanity in all other ways when—well, this often couldn't be farther from the actual truth. See, there's this thing that happens to those who have early success—or have success thrust upon them thanks to nepotistic opportunity—where they also think they're better than everyone else. If they found their success through a singular focus on their chosen path, it's…
