Karen Demands to Speak to Fellow Customer's Manager

If you've ever worked retail or just exist, you've probably witnessed a frustrating entitled person going full Karen. The wild Karen's secret weapon is to demand to see a poor soul's manager, but this time, Karen's target was a fellow customer. Sometimes it doesn't work out for an overly aggressive Karen, like this tailgating Karen who got baited into a speed trap or this Karen who got humbled by a Canadian giant.

Husband Flips out on Karen Military-Style

This entitled Karen got more than she bargained for after she tried to bully a fellow customer into bagging her groceries. When someone goes full Karen there's no way of knowing how it will go. People who know Karens have to deal with a lot of unpleasantness, and it can even end with that Karen making a whole neighborhood miserable. Retail workers and service industry workers know all too well how they operate, like this Karen who demanded the spiciest wings and didn't get a refund.

"Ken" the male Karen thought he'd get to boss around the current employees of the store he bought, but his crappy attitude and unrealistic expectations led the newly open positions to be job poison.

Guy Who Didn't Work at Walmart Fired by Walmart Manager

This random dude wearing a blue shirt had a run-in with a manager who was eager to fire someone she didn't even recognize. This one's kind of the opposite of this chef who was hired by a law firm just to foil the security guard. Employees of huge retail chains have to put up with some strange problems at work, like this guy who got hired and through a series of mistakes, never did anything but still stayed employed for months

Items That Get More Suspicious the More Someone Has

Just about any item, from toilet plungers to garbage bags can seem sinister when you own enough to fill a room with them. Also, hoarding tons of stuff can make you generally reviled, like this toilet paper hoarding Karen.

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 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.

Choosing Beggar Leaves Idiotic One Star Review, Store Owner Fires Back with Justified Condemnation

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.
