'Do you know who I am?': Base commander demands immediate medical assistance for nonemergency, medic maliciously complies

It's often the case that the most effective soliton for an unreasonable demand involves following that demand to the letter. If you refuse to comply, you're likely just going to cause yourself even more annoyance and trouble, but if you maliciously comply, you have the added benefit of leaving the command-giver to either discover their error on their own or crash and burn in a blaze of glory. Either result will have the desired effect: Getting them off your ass. This is how it was for Reddit us…

As you wish | This happened a couple or three decades ago in the military. I was in charge of the squadron budget and made sure all unit expenditures were proper (right funds account) and funds were available.

'Sir, I sent those requests to you two weeks ago': Commander demands every expenditure passes through his approval, subordinates oblige

Nothing receives a coordinated response quite like an overly-stupid directive, especially when that directive is passed by a superior who everyone already intensely dislikes.

New Officer Makes Subordinate Their Travel Agent, They Book the Officer the Worst Possible Flights

Some people just can't be trusted with a single shred of power. As soon as they manage to find themselves with even a semblance of it, they don't hesitate for a second to wield it over every person they possibly can with a stupid fury. I wish that I could say that these people don't succeed but, based on the stories we see, that's often not the case. It's as if these people have never once stopped to consider or care about other people and the effect that their actions have on their lives. Let'…

Supermarket Karen Assaults Combat Veteran, Pays the Price

A military combat veteran was minding his business doing his grocery shopping when a wild supermarket Karen appeared and demanded his assistance. When he refused to assist her things escalated and led to a dramatic confrontation. “30 days?! Why not forever?” Questioned Catacombs3. "Why would they tolerate/encorage people who physically attack their customers? I hope you pressed charges for assault." Some commenters took a dislike to the poster's narrative which they accused of being drenched in…

Insane Military-Wife Karen Won't Fraternize With Wives From Other Branches, Cancels Sale

“Imagine tying your entire identity to the job of someone you chose to marry.” This comment by DoNotReply111 sums it up better than I ever could… Imagine then taking that identity that you based entirely off of your spouse's job and using it to distance yourself from other spouses of the same profession. It's the kind of thing that just absolutely bottles the mind. This exchange was posted to the aptly named subreddit r/entitledb*tch subreddit where it reached the top of that small sub. The thr…
