Employee Fired Over Hospital Visit, Boss Then Misses Wedding Tasting and Fianceé Leaves Him

In a series of extremely preventable events this employee was fired for missing work but still required to work out a two-week notice period. If that sounds confusing to you, that's because it is. Working a notice period after being unceremoniously fired is entirely laughable and totally bewildering, especially when you're requiring said fired (and unqualified) employee to run the shop for you while you dip out for wedding preparations with your fianceé. Yeah, totally preventable. All this guy…

When this comedian was asked for a video resume for a simple clothing store retail role she got her gooses gassed up and led with her best foot. She may not have aced the interview, but she has certainly aced our hearts. Her video response perfectly captures Millennial awkward/random humor… and folding a shirt to the tune of dubstep actually provides answers to the mystery of why our generation collectively died inside right around this time.

Entitled Cafe Owner Tangles With POS Vendor and Loses, Lives to Regret Their Choice of Words

When you're largely dependent on a specific ‘something’ to keep your business running smoothly, it's never a good idea to upset the people running that thing or treat them poorly. Unfortunately, entitled business owners have yet to learn that they shouldn't mess with these people, or their business could go under. On the other hand, it's fortunate for us because it makes for some great stories. This particular story was just posted to Reddit's r/maliciouscompliance subreddit by user u/nobjangle…

Frustrated Karen Gets Customer Fired From a Store Where He Didn't Even Work

This guy was fired from a store he didn't even work at after an enraged Karen insisted on his termination. He posted to Reddit's popular r/IDontWorkHereLady in order to share his story. Thanks to retrogressive policies like “The customer is always right" we have conditioned all of these entitled people in the world to think that they can get everything their way. The sad thing is that they are often completely right and they have this worldview reinforced time and time again by constant arse ki…

Malicious Compliance: Receptionist Refuses to Help Patient in Person, So They Phone Her Instead

When this patient walked up to the receptionist to try and make an appointment they were told that appointments could be made over the phone only, so they whipped out their phone and called the doctor's office right in front of the receptionist. Bureaucracies are an inertant force and dealing with them can be like dredging sludge off the ocean floor. Their entire existence serves to slow penetration and discourage inquiries from advancing any further than they need to. In favor of the reception…

Karen Screams at Cashier, Attacks Manager, Gets Arrested

Who has a better story than Bran the Broken? Well, anyone with a first-hand story of watching a Karen getting arrested for starters. This Reddit user, u/SimMinnie, shared a tale more epic (and better written) than the last season of Game of Thrones to the r/EntitledPeople subreddit. It's no secret that we love a good story about an entitled person getting their comeuppance and this one certainly ticks all the boxes. u/SimMinnie explains that the story took place when they were working as a supe…
