We're no strangers to the pettiest revenges of the most petty people, but this is so specific and weird that it's just kind of awesome. If anyone thought that sewing didn't have the potential to be a merchant of chaos, then they didn't know things like how Tumblr's yarn community has serious drama.

One Pound Cake Karen Furious After Getting What She Wants

What is there left to do after a customer gets exactly what they want? Does the customer apologize for their misconception? Do they just walk off with what they asked for? Absolutely not, what planet are you on? For some stupid reason, there's a type of customer who thinks it's well within their rights to be a total jackass about their own mistake. It's reminiscent of this guy who ordered exactly a pound of wings and got less, but at least it wasn't as bad as thisguy who demanded no ice and got less than that.

Delusional Manager Won't Accept Resignation

This person asked if they were right to walk out after their boss tried some weird manipulative BS by "not accepting" their two wees notice.

Dude's Dad Uses Legal Loophole To Speed For Years

Everyone loves a good loophole they can exploit for years. While speeding is an inadvisable thing to do, this dude was able to navigate a legal gray area that allowed him to avoid getting a ticket for half a decade. Who knows if he saved enough time speeding to make up for all the time he spent in court, but still, it's an intriguing misuse of the law. For another amazing loophole, there's this person who made a mockery of a robotics competition

Student Corrects Teacher, Teacher Can't Handle It

While it is a teacher's responsibility to know things, they're still human and are capable of getting those things wrong. It's when a teacher says something wrong and doesn't own up to it when things get weird. What's the value in lying to kids just so that you can maintain a false sense of authority? Sometimes teachers don't give their students enough credit, like this tumblr thread about a teacher underestimating their students for a social experiment. With the veritable weirdness some educators display, luckily there are also teachers who pulled total bro moves.

Lingering Customer Can't Use Facilities After Close, Throws Tantrum

Closing time can be a dodgy period for employees. This lady brought her tea from home so it's unclear if she was even a real customer, but expecting to just stay as long as you want when all the employees should be off work anyway? What a way to live your life. Too many customers don't seem to get that closed means closed, like this entitled customer who expects a place to stay open late but can't handle rejection.

Negligent Employee Gives Pokémon League Duties to Random Kid, Kid Gets Back Pay

The world of retail work is full of mistaken customers, like this Karen who thought an employee was a line cutter, but it's pretty clear that at many institutions, the people running them also have very little clue of what exactly is going on. In this case, one employee who couldn't care less foisted the Pokémon duties onto some random kids, and when management found out they just thought "oh crap we better pay 'em."

Staff Makes Student Patiently Wait to Report Fire

The hierarchy of school can be strange, especially when there's some miscommunication going on between staff and students. In this case, the staff didn't understand the full scope of what was going on, and had themselves an absurd situation on their hands. Here's a tumblr story of a teacher who underestimated their students in a social experiment, and here are some "that's amazing, but please stop" school stories.

Pet Store Employee Stops Karen From Torturing Starfish

Having a saltwater tank isn't as easy as throwing some salt and water together in a jug like it's Kool-Aid and calling it a day. Karen wasn't having all this "responsible pet owner" talk, so this employee stepped in to show her exactly what she'd need to take care of a starfish. Of course, Karen didn't take kindly to this employee who didn't want her to slowly torture a starfish to death. Will the Karen customersof the world ever learn their lesson? Doubtful.

Tumblr Thread: The Still On-Patrol Submarines

There's a tradition in the U.S. navy that no submarine is lost at sea, and every Christmas a broadcast is sent out to all the crews of those subs still on duty. Naturally, tumblr took it and made it into a whole ghost ship thing, which is somehow macabre but also heartwarming. Why not, people see some unexplained stuff at sea. For a totally classic navy story, here's a Navy operations officer who pulled the laziest move ever.

Thread Proves Even Insurance Can Become Fan Fiction

People will fanfic anything and there is no way to escape it. Even if you're just an insurance mascot. This would be a lot worse if it were some tacky native advertising scheme to make insurance companies seem quirky, but in this case it really looks like people make insurance fan fiction for the love of the game. For some more unbridled creativity people threw together, here's an awesome tumblr thread about being a human on a Vulcan ship or this tumblr thread imagining college students living with the Addams family.

Staff Sergeant Supervisor Gets Caught Lying About Doing His Job

Is there a better feeling than catching your supervisor in a lie? Yes, when it's in writing. And even better than that, when you can leverage that knowledge to make them give you a more accurate performance review. Interesting things happen when there's a strict chain of command, like this military wife Karen who demanded salutes and ended up getting mocked.
