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

'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. There are the tiny things, like planning to visit a popular spot, only to find out when you arrive that it's closed for the day. 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…

'Karen doing as Karen does': Customer demands extra extra caramel at drive thru, worker maliciously complies

'Karen doing as Karen does': Customer demands extra extra caramel at drive thru, worker maliciously complies

Be careful what you wish for, Karen! If you're the type of person who sends a drink back at a drive thru, let's clarify a few things first, starting with what are you asking for. If it's a major modification to the menu or an innocent mistake, perhaps reconsider, especially if the line behind you lasts an eternity. This is not a Michelin star restaurant; it's a drive thru. Second of all, remember the old “you get what you get and you don't get upset” saying? That doesn't just apply to your kid,…

Karen barks at $250 bill, shoves manager in front of on-duty officers: ''[They] immediately cuff her'

Karen barks at $250 bill, shoves manager in front of on-duty officers: '[They] immediately cuff her'

This Karen literally did all of this to herself. First, she marched into a popular Mexican restaurant with approximately 15 teenagers behind her, threw down her credit card, and let all these kids order whatever they wanted. Her abrasive behavior had already ticked off the manager and the other employees at the restaurant, so they were happy to see these teens order more than their fair share. By the time the manager gave the Karen a $250 bill, things started to get way more heated. For one, sh…

'I'm going to sue you all and get all you people fired': Furious Karen erupts at movie theater works after they kicked her disruptive kids out

It doesn't get much worse than having to discipline unsupervised children when that is so beyond your job description. Sure, kids are known to run amok in venues like movie theaters and malls, but that does not mean that it is the responsibility of the people who work at those establishments to take care of them. If your kids are known to be unruly in public, you should probably be the one to watch them. Furthermore, when they get in trouble as they did here, you better go pick them up. Here, w…

'Sleep well, dude': Man leaves loud neighbor with parting gift after long standing neighborly dispute

'Sleep well, dude': Man leaves loud neighbor with parting gift after long standing neighborly dispute

Your neighbors are your closest allies. They can assist with receiving packages, impart insightful information about the surrounding area, keep a watchful eye on your home, and much more. However, should misfortune find you and you are forced to live next door to a horrible person who has been a headache since the minute she arrived, do you participate in her little game of torment or do you cave into all of her absurd requests in an attempt to keep things at bay? The Original Poster (OP) recen…

'I want to sit there, so can you move?': Karen and Kevin demand for bus passenger to move for the extra leg room

'I want to sit there, so can you move?': Karen and Kevin demand for bus passenger to move for the extra leg room

We all know that bus people are way worse than plane and train people. Sure, there are always exceptions, and sometimes you end up on a plane next to someone who is acting like this is a bus. However, for the most part, bus people refuse to make room for other passengers even if the vehicle is clearly full. Bus people also love to talk on the phone for long stretches of time, as if there is no one else around. They love snacking on smelly food and not cleaning up after themselves. And they love…

'Karens keep stealing from my garden': Sneaky neighbors bring bags to 'grab and run' with their stolen veggies

This person already didn't love gardening, but then their neighbors started stealing from them … That just made the situation even worse. A lot of folks find gardening to be a peaceful way to connect with nature. The pros are that you get to watch living things grow, and if you're lucky, you'll get to eat the literal fruits of your labor. Even if all you grow is a handful of string beans or a few teensy tiny tomatoes, they taste better because you're the veggies' parent. You raised it from seed…

'Enjoy walking 4 kilometers home': Angry ignoramus gets tricked off the bus by exasperated driver, made to take a long walk home

Public transport is a great way to get around in cities that have properly invested in it. If you live in one of these cities, chances are you just take for granted how seamless an effective public transport system can be for getting around the city easily. For those of us who live in cities where public transport is mismanaged or underfunded risking being late for work because the bus was 20 minutes late or just didn't show up makes it not worth it. When we visit those cities with working publ…

'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

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…
