Customer Doesn't Trust Tech Support Employee's Advice, Lives To Regret It Weeks Later

There are far too many irrational, impossibly entitled customers out there that insist on not accepting tech support employees' advice. It's like they call in to tech support just to pitch a fit, and take out some of the stress they've accumulated through their personal lives, on completely well meaning individuals in the realm of tech support. It's a whole toxic circus act, and hopefully less and less people go about participating in it. In this particular tech support tale, we get to read about a stubborn customer who proactively wastes his own time. Pretty good stuff. For another tech support tale, check out the time that an owner fired the IT guy, and then how the business was completely sabotaged afterwards

An aggressive customer disregards a tech support employee's advice, wastes weeks complaining, and then lives to regret it.

Dude Takes On Challenge Burger At Local Business, Pays The Price

An unfortunate amount of us have fallen prey to the temptation of a food challenge at a local business at one point or another in our lives. It could be getting caught up in the excitement of the moment, maybe paired with an underlying competitive drive, but when it's all said and done those food challenges have an uncanny knack for completely messing people up. That's why restaurants offer the discounts/free meals that they do if you actually end up being able to complete the challenge in the first place. This person certainly learned their lesson in the way of painful, burning regret after trying to complete their burger challenge.

Reckless Uses Of Money People Don't Regret At All

While these ended up being decent expenses, some people get some extremely bad financial advice that is irredeemable. It'd be nice to have a taste of these absurdly expensive things people witnessed

Woman Calls Off Wedding After Fiancee Complains About Wedding Dress

This guy decided to take to Reddit and ask people whether or not he was in the wrong for arguing with his newly ex fiancee over the extravagant cost of a wedding dress. His biggest flop of all here was that he used her real name, which apparently resulted in people creating fake accounts pretending to be her. What a nightmare.

Ship Captain Disregards Deck Crew's Advice, Loses Bonus, Gets Chewed Out

Man, nothing can bring the blood to a boil quite like having to take orders from a boss that clearly doesn't know what they're doing. In this case, we have a ship captain who sounds like he'd exhausted all of his ability to care about much of anything on the ship. The guy refused to listen to his deck crew's warnings, and ended up living to regret that like none other. Poor guy missed out on a bonus that he'd easily have been rewarded if he'd just slowed down and been a little more openminded.

Things People Bought and Said "Never Again"

They said with this whole "free market" thing that we should be getting good products or services at a reasonable prices, but sometimes that's just not the case. Other times, you get what you pay for. Sometimes a company is having a bad day, and other times it's just common knowledge that you won't be getting a good steak from the dollar store. Other than products, there are things people did that made them say "never again."

Dude Lives To Regret Staring At The Sun As A Kid

Man, this might get the anxiety flowing for anyone out there that ever did something similar to this as a kid. It's funny and unfortunate that as kids we're all just led along, sometimes down the wrong routes, due to our overwhelming curiosity. The lesson here is obviously to not stare at the sun!

Horrible Boss Tells Most Valuable Employee to Quit, Instantly Regrets It

This boss thought they could get a single employee to do both of their jobs and expect to not get paid for it, told em to quit, and then realized that they might need them. The boss even went so far as to try to pretend that they just hadn't fired them.
