Boss Instructs Employee To Guard Spill, So He Does It for Hours

Big retail chains can have a lot space for people to fall through the cracks, like this guy who got hired but was never told to do anything and stayed on for months. Anyway, retail and customer service is a drag, and we feel for those who get backed into a corner by an incompetent boss.

Guy's boss tells him to stand by spills so he does that for a very long time.

Guy Gets Hired at Store, Never Told to do Anything, Stays On for Months

This is surreal and the fact that this guy did what he did for this long before just walking away has sort of an air of triumph to it. First jobs can be really confusing, so when you're a dumb teenager who has no idea how jobs actually work, and are then given zero direction from an awful manager, you can get down some weird rabbit holes.

Guy tells story of how when he was a teenager he was hired at a retail store. No one told him to do anything so he occupied his time, then got bored and left.

Med Student Leaves Aggressive Review For Computer Repair Shop, Owner Responds with Fury

Sometimes people come into a store ready to start swinging. When this customer called this business a scam, the owner chose to respond with some convincing aspects of the whole story that were left out of the original review. Business owners tend to put a staggering amount of time and energy into responding to negative reviews, like this person who left a one star review and was met with justified condemnation.

With commentary from SciManDan, we're taken through an amazing journey as a flat earther rips up a children's science book that he deems to be round earth propaganda in a Target. He buys the book anyway, so while he seems content with his incredibly limited world view, what he truly fears is the wrath of a Target manager watching him destroy product. Just kinda makes you sad.

This reviewer had the nerve to call a suitable response to their insulting offer "unprofessional" and inadvertently went in for round two. The world is full of frustrating cheapskates, but when someone leaves a ridiculous review like this they leave themselves open for an utter takedown of their entire character.

Guy Makes Insultingly Low Offer for Lawnmower So Dude Sends Him to Sears

It's not uncommon in cases of choosing beggars to send an entitled buyer to pick something up, but in reality send them on en endless wild goose chase. This kind of trolling is typically reserved for the more abusive, entitled, and unobservant people who try to waste other people's time with tactless low-balling.

Awful Owner Tasks Guy With Hiring His Replacement, So He Hires A Known Thief

It's encouraging to see people leave a bad job, like when this dude's awful boss asked him to consider his role so he got a better job. The kicker for this one is that, while the owners are trying to manipulate this guy into hiring his own replacement, the new guy with the sketchy job history was their choice anyway.

14 Children Of "Speak to Your Manager" Parents Tell Their Stories

The internet is not kind to the unreasonable adults who lie to and berate people in customer service. Abusive people like this are not-so-affectionately referred to as "Karens."
