Boss Expects Work Without Pay, Gets What He Pays For

This boss wanted a manager that he didn't have to pay extra. Instead of going along with the BS, this employee decided enough was enough and let the boss get exactly the amount of work he was paying for. Incompetent managers have a way of biting themselves in the ass, like this incompetent manager who forbid overtime. Here are more people's "screw this, I'm out" stories.

Kid Infiltrates Walmart By Wearing Neon Vest

Anyone who has worked anywhere knows that you could walk into just about any business or institution carrying a ladder, holding a clipboard, wearing hard hat or hi vis jacket and not be questioned. It's not necessarily a good idea to impersonate staff, and it's probably some version of illegal. But as this kid attests, it can be done. For a while at least. For some rule bending, here are some loopholes people were able to exploit for years. For more Walmart junk, here are some of the weirdest things Walmart employees witnessed.

Entitled Customer Comes In After Close, Kicked Out By "Manager"

There's a type of customer that is never going to be happy. That type of customer has a habit of coming in during closing and being really unsure of what they want. They're just terrific people to be around. For another warm and loving person, here's a Karen who demanded a fellow customer's cart, but they didn't back down.

This guy kept asking her to leave, but for whatever reason she didn't want to go. Honestly this went way more smoothly than it could have. A higher level Karen would have fought and made things worse for everyone.

Karen Demands Fellow Customer's Cart, They Don't Back Down

Employees find themselves having to constantly give in to demands of obnoxious Karens, but customers don't have to abide by such niceties. That's why when a Karen finds themselves battling with a customer, they usually get a taste of deserved resistance. For a total loss on the part of a Karen, here's a salon Karen who argued her way into a new Karen haircut.

Twitter Thread: Cheesecake Factory is A World of Contradictions

Anyone can tell you that The Cheesecake Factory is a building full of paradoxes. It's like it's telling you with all its heart that it wants to be fancy with all the lighting and the columns, and then you sit down and drink out of a plastic cup. Cheesecake is great, but the place itself really makes you think "how does this place still exist?" Maybe it fits the bill of "a place people can agree to go to." @MaxKreigerVG got extremely deep about America's gaudiest Cheesecake vendor.

Karen Thinks Employee Is Line Cutter, Gets Humbled

The garden variety Karen is known for obstructive outbursts, and this one was no different when she convinced herself that an employee was trying to ruin her day.

Bold and Mistaken Customers Who Were at the Wrong Store

Customers get can get extremely indignant when they believe that a fast food employee is "denying their rights" or whatever. But when the dust settles, and the guy has threatened to call the cops over being denied a reheated fish taco, nothing hits quite harder than "dude, this is a McDonalds." If it's not already obvious, customers make some ridiculous demands.

There's not much more to say, it is what it is. We don't envy whoever had to use that intercom after he did, but damn that was resonant.

Hold on is this a political statement?

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.

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
