Customer Asks Restaurant To Cut Burrito In Half, Restaurant Maliciously Complies

Some people can get very fired up about their burritos. Like, remember the time that a Tumblr user unleashed an epic rant about their burrito not being served up to their standards? Yeah, not a rant that's easy to forget. Well, this time around we have a couple customers that wanted their burrito cut in half. Folks in the comments section were definitely making a solid case for the stance that the restaurant really should've just cut the burrito in half and not made a big deal out of the whole thing. Especially when you consider that there are plenty of people out there that physically can't cut their burritos in half due to health conditions. For some more juicy malicious compliance drama check out the time that a rude customer got their comeuppance from an auto salvage yard employee.

Customer Demands Refund For Their Own Mistake, Call Center Maliciously Complies

Our hearts go out to anyone who has to muddle through shifts at a call center. It seems like call centers are magnets for the world's most insufferable, painfully entitled individuals.

Seriously, there's no excuse. Fortunately, this call center was able to play right into the customer's demands in a way that resulted in glorious malicious compliance. If this post got you going, then definitely check out this post about a customer who demanded a plain omelette, and was then furious that it was just plain eggs.

Server Says Restaurant With Full Bar Doesn't Have Cocktails, Customer Finds Workaround

This person's whole point about how making sure that you keep your expectations low can end up helping you not be disappointed as often is really right on the mark. The thing about this particular restaurant though is that they somehow outdid themselves when it came to offering lousy service. Like, how do you have a fully stocked bar, yet also not offer cocktails? Seems like a business opportunity is being a little missed out on.

Woman Claims She's On Salt-Free Diet, Gets Exposed

We're not sure what compels people to weave their unnecessary webs of foolish lies. Especially when it comes to something as silly as rapping off a quick work of fiction about how they're on a salt-free diet. Well, the thing about lying is eventually you'll come across someone who has their BS radar up and running, and also has no problem calling someone out for their dishonest antics. Thus was the case for Sally. For another satisfying tale of malicious compliance, check out this story about a boss who accused an ex-employee of reporting them, and then actually proceeded to get reported.

Dad Designs Masterful Basketball Hoop Loophole

What do you do when an entitled neighbor starts some drama to prevent something as simple as a neighborhood basketball hoop? You figure out a loophole and get that hoop, baby. Praise be to the powers of welding. This one is in the same vein as the guy who realized he needed a permit to build a garage so he just bought a van instead.

Entitled Lady Calls Ambulance For Non-Emergency, Gets Full Experience

The E in EMS stands for Emergency, and it sounds like a non-urgent trip to the hospital for a scheduled appointment might not be an appropriate use of an emergency responder's time. Plus, depending on where you live, taking a non-essential ambulance ride to the hospital would give you a nice little extra thousand dollars on your hospital bill. The real crime here is probably that a trip to the hospital costs so much damn money, but, you know, one thing at a time. The field of medicine sees some wildly dumb interactions, like these absurd medical misconceptions or stupid things medical patients did that made it worse.

Glorified Manager Tries To Monopolize Sales Calls, Lives To Regret It

I wonder how many moments Jeff had where he was up late at night, tossing and turning, soaked in sweat, bogged down by the burn of regret. It's like, he was the one who ultimately ended up complicating his own life.

Karen Presenter Demands Crappier Hotel Booking, Gets It

It's often worth it to defer to the person whose job it is to schedule things, but Karen was sure about what she wanted, so by gum she got it. It's almost like this rude customer who demanded no ice and got less than that. Karens have a rough track record with the bureaucracy of hotels, for example, this Karen who wanted a late check out and got rejected.
