Entitled Folks And Their Laughable Antics

The fun thing about entitled people is that they never really seem to understand why everyone takes issue with their "suggestions." From this entitled mom who tried to swindle a babysitter to the many Karens of the world, what feels like it should be a learning experience never becomes one. The abusive landlords, demanding neighbors, insane bosses and random craigslist buyers out there just keep doing their thing, unfazed by the mountains of regular people telling them they're being ridiculous.

Scams That Have Been Normalized By Society

We are at heart, frugal, sometimes to the point of staggering paranoia. We're the kind of people who are inclined to look at an overpriced jar of pickles and say to ourselves "Big Pickle must be stopped." Just because a business, practice or concept has been operating for decades doesn't mean that it's not just a scam that people overlook. Stupid pickles are just vinegar and cucumbers anyway.

On the flipside, here are some things people think are scams but aren't really.

Entitled People With Their Fantastical Demands

The world is a big place full of all kinds of people. Unfortunately, some of those people are the kind of entitled people who want to play absurd games. The kind of people who will make their employees pay them for the privilege of working for them. The kind of people who will throw a tantrum because they are too old to get a free donut. Entitled people and their excruciating behavior are a phenomenon that is impossible to look away from.

Entitled People and Their Ridiculous Audacity

While most people have a decent sense of decorum, we're always not far away from entitled people and their ceaseless demands. Once someone decides they want your stereo for free, or that they were justified in not tipping, there's no line of logic that will ever convince them that they just might be in the wrong. It's an amazing thing to watch, the incredible demands of entitled people.

When the hierarchy gets overzealous and cocky, things can get out of hand real fast. This employee found themselves under direct orders to not double check a coworker's work, and low and behold, they wasted a whole bunch of money.

Things Regular People Overheard Rich People Say

There are a few crucial points when regular folks get access to the conversations of the obscenely wealthy. People like chauffeurs, golf caddies and caterers get to enjoy the wild, out-of-touch and interesting things these people have to say. It's a complete shock to see someone do something like spend 30 thousand dollars on flowers, which is why tales like these absurdly expensive things people witnessed and cases of out-of-touch wealthy people are as frustrating as they are a circus-like spectacle.

Good Stuff That Got Ruined By Money and Popularity

The world often finds itself at a loss for good cheap stuff. After cheap things become popular, the powers that be start to realize the premium people will pay for those things that are popular, even if the cost isn't reflected accurately. There was a time when chicken wings were cheap. Now people wear good work pants as if they were a luxury brand. It could also be a mix of inflation and nostalgia, but by god there's tons of stuff that's more expensive but also somehow worse. Here's some of the most absurdly overpriced stuff people have seen.

Wife Says Family's Broke, Husband Reminds Her They're Millionaires

Honestly, it's probably best to do what you can to steer clear of those revealing talks about the state of your personal finances around the dinner table. Especially whenever there might be some alcohol involved. There are just certain subjects that have a tendency to set people on edge. In this scenario, we have a couple who ends up being at odds over how they present the state of their financials to the rest of the world. The wife wants to paint a BS picture of them being broke, while the husband is more concerned with people knowing that they're in fact millionaires. Maybe just take a break from sharing all that information, and focus on something else.

Company Won't Accept Mortgage Payments, Tells Customer They've Defaulted

There's a type of business that makes itself deliberately hard to navigate just so they can charge weird fees. Some companies will even hide or delay just how much interest they've charged just to bully customers into paying for late fees they didn't even know existed. Navigating the corporate landscape as one person can be an absolute nightmare, but after dealing with the absurd process of paying their own mortgage, this person realized they didn't have to put up with the nonsense. For another tale of financial absurdity, here's a guy who got hounded for a trivial debt and ended up mailing them a dime.

Twitter Thread: How Taylor Swift Cut Out Her Predatory Label

Whether you're a fan of Taylor Swift's music or not, it's interesting to learn about the long, long history of musicians signing horrible deals early in their careers and getting completely shafted later on when it comes to the rights of their own music. It's crazy to think that there are recording artists today don't own their own music, like we're still living in some old-timey Motown story of forgotten legends and cartoonishly evil businessmen. @ThatsMauvelous details the weird legal stunts Swift had to pull to get the rights to her music back from her old label.
