'I'm so sorry your 3500 calorie meal was missing the side of ranch you asked for': Top 20 'First World Problem' Moments

People love to make mountains out of molehills. Most of the time, it's because their actual problems are absolutely nothing compared to those of countless others in the world. But people love to feel like the underdog in their own story, even when the obstacles they're up against are as simple as waiting in a long line at the grocery store. This form of main character syndrome has manifested itself in countless work environments, public spaces, and schools. It's the boss with five homes who mak…

'I professionally shutdown Karens & Kens': 21+ Servers share their most satisfying customer shutdown stories

As someone who has worked many years in the service industry let me tell you, when an unruly customer gets what's coming to them, it is the most satisfying feeling in the world. Service industry jobs are usually low pay, you're running around on your feet all day, and you have to deal with the most entitled customers. It's not always like that! Sometimes you have great regulars and a fantastic team. But, unfortunately, those more annoying events are more common. The longer you work in the servi…

'THERE'S A HUGE SPIDER LOOSE IN MY HOUSE': Neighbor steals package, gets hairy eight-legged surprise

It's the holiday season, which once meant that you'd venture forth into the world to carefully select gifts for all your loved ones, making sure to get everyone something that they truly desired but wouldn't have bought (or even have been able to find) for themselves— ensuring that they know how much you appreciate them and how special they are in your life. For every father in the world, that's apparently a new shirt and tie for the office and a single pack of boxers to last him until next yea…

'I ordered 60 or so sushi rolls because I thought they were [on] sale': Top Karens of 2023

The years may come and go, but the entitlement never ends. Just when you thought Karens were at their worst last year, 2023 came along to remind you that no matter what, these strange birds will always find their way into our lives. They might be demanding to speak to the manager, they might be yelling at their neighbors, and they might be doing both of those things at the same time. This year, some of our top Karen stories include excerpts from unnecessary neighborhood social media group posts…

'They put me over the edge': Daughter misses Dad and Karen Stepmom's wedding, they never got over it, daughter confronts them years later with no regrets

There are certain moments in a family's history that people will never let go of no matter how hard you try. It's that bizarre thing that happens when members of a family construct a strange revisionist narrative of the event that, of course, paints themselves in a great light and another member of the family in a bad one. That's exactly what happened to this Redditor, who shared their story via this thread on Reddit's r/AmITheA**hole subreddit. When she was 11 years old, she was grieving the l…

'YOU'RE IN MY SPOT': Not-so-merry Karen tries to to steal a guy's parking spot to get her holiday shopping done, gets put in her place

The holiday season can be earmarked by chaos, mayhem, and grouchy shoppers. Although every Hallmark movie boasts about cheerful worldly interactions and whimsical holiday shopping, any home-grown American can tell you that all decorum and merriment is thrown out the window the moment you set foot in the department store parking lot.

'You were in no rush to help': Managers scapegoat server for entitled customer's kitchen complaints

It can be incredibly difficult and frustrating working in customer-facing roles where your managers refuse to face up and take accountability on behalf of the operation they are managing, instead throwing the lowest-level workers under the bus for things well out of their control. When you're an honest, well-intended person, it can take an unfortunate amount of time to realize that not everyone is wired to be honest and well-intended and that there are, in fact, people trying to take advantage…

'He actually needed it': Disabled dude confronted by stranger demanding his mobility scooter

A major problem with the social media-fueled “always right” attitude and justice-seeking is that we often are wrong in our own thoughts and perceptions, often because our perception is almost always formed off an incomplete picture. So, in seeking the justice we crave from the people we have incorrectly labeled as antisocial wrong-doers, we ourselves become the antisocial wrong-doers. Unfortunately, this is something that people with many permanent disabilities that aren't immediately visible t…

'Karen [said] I had no right to do that': Karen throws fit over neighbor's new fence, turns out she was 10 feet over the property line

Most Karen neighbors are sticklers around noise and privacy, but you would think if they would accuse you of crossing the property line, they would at least double check first. Here, we have a Karen who threw a tantrum at her neighbor's friend, who was doing a favor and assisting with replacing his buddy's fence. Karen insisted that the fence was over the property line, prompting her neighbor and his friend to do some research. When they uncovered that her property was actually nearly 10 feet o…

'Dude, you just loiter': Older couple waltz around bookstore like they own the place never spending a dime, owner pulls a fast one on them by removing all chairs

Sometimes big problems require simple solutions. This seemed to be the case in the entitled couple vs small bookstore story we came across on Reddit. The bookstore employee recalls an older couple who oozed entitlement so much in the establishment that it ruined the comfort of big comfy chairs for everyone. This couple would come in, never by anything, but would sit in the only two big comfy chairs all day long, cut the line to demand free hot water, and even kick their feet up on the table SHO…

'I'll take a free upgrade, thanks': Entitled Karen books a hotel room that's too small for her family, management denies her demands for an upgrade

We've all run into the frustration of trying to reserve a room at a good rate, only for the hotel to be completely booked on the dates you wanted. It's a bummer for sure, but it's not the end of the world. You booked too late, so you need to find other accommodations. But would you book a room that's too small to accommodate your party and expect an upgrade upon check-in? Free of charge? Well, that's precisely what this Karen thought would happen.

‘I don’t work here': Grocery store Karen grabs electrician by the collar demanding ‘clean up in aisle 10,' he almost actually does it due to sheer craziness-levels

Karens gonna Karen no matter your profession. So whether you work in the service industry or are the CEO of your own company, nobody is safe from a Karen. Take, for example, this electrician's story on Reddit . He was hired, as an electrician, to do some lighting work at a grocery store. This was back when he was a young blue collar worker and still new to the trade. He was alone, on a ladder, working on the lights, very much looking like an electrician and in no way a grocery store clerk. And…

'By god, he had me stressed on a Monday morning': Male-Karen throws a tantrum demanding a meal refund, turns out he's in the wrong restaurant

If there is one thing that working in the service industry tends to teach you, it's to hold your ground. You can't let everyone walk all over you, because there will be people who will most definitely take advantage of that weakness. For example, this server who either came encounter with a male Karen or a really empty-headed scammer. He was working a very slow morning shift, we're talking just several orders, enough to count on one hand. So when a mad came storming in demanding a refund, the f…
