Mistaken People Who Missed The Joke By Miles

The problem with communicating over the internet is that there's a whole lot of room for misinterpretation. Plus, there's a whole lot of access to dumb people. Those two factors mean that there's a whole lot of people who miss jokes by light-years. Does it feel good to get a joke someone else didn't get? Yeah. Is it also disappointing to see someone aggressively not get the joke? Also yeah.

Staff Sergeant Supervisor Gets Caught Lying About Doing His Job

Is there a better feeling than catching your supervisor in a lie? Yes, when it's in writing. And even better than that, when you can leverage that knowledge to make them give you a more accurate performance review. Interesting things happen when there's a strict chain of command, like this military wife Karen who demanded salutes and ended up getting mocked.

Parents and Their "I Just Looked Away For a Second" Moments

Oh, the unparalleled panic of losing your kid at the store. It's common knowledge that kids are weird and dumb, and as it stands they shouldn't be trusted. Look away for a second and they're off trying to drink toilet water or join a new family. Sure, we eventually grow to resent the illogical things our parents do, but for a real long time it's you being the idiot.

Tumblr Thread: A Vulcan Gets a Cat

Seeing our own actions through the eyes of a more coldly logical being lets us poke fun at the absurdity of our own lives. Plus it doesn't hurt that Vulcans are a fun concept to play around with anyway, as evidenced by this tumblr thread of a human on a Vulcan ship. Pet ownership is weird, and our relationship with cats in particular is fraught with unique and strange meaning. Especially when you get into specifics like this tumblr thread on how cats are just eloquent enough to be melodramatic.

Demanding Customer Wastes Their Own Time for Four Cents

Sure, if the hill you're willing to die on costs four cents out of the charity bin, go ahead and die on that hill. Customers sometimes make demands with stupid implications, like this customer who wanted a pound of chicken wings and got less wings or this guy who demanded to ride in a go kart with no engine.

Lying Karen Gets Decimated By Owner's Response

Honestly this whole party sounds like an absolute nightmare to serve. They were loud, rude, horribly messy, and terrible liars. It's not uncommon for a Karen to lie to a restaurant owner's face, causing some revenge to unfold. When bad customers try to strike back in the reviews section, they don't realize that some owners have all the time in the world to respond.

You might end up thinking unicorns existed too if you were a medieval scribe trying to translate second hand knowledge.

Anyone who's worked retail knows that there are some infuriating customers out there, and sometimes they need a push in the right direction. This manager had it in their head that no one should be told to leave at 2 am, so this employee made a point to show just how bad of an idea that can be. It got results. For more customer stories, here are bold and mistaken customers who were at the wrong store.
