As usual, OP was at the front desk when she received a call from someone claiming to have checked out earlier but to have forgotten his suitcase. At first, OP informs the man that the housekeeper has…

'He took it too far': Petty Family Leave Restaurant a Bad Review in an Attempt to Get an Extra Discount

As we often say, being a customer service representative has perks as well as drawbacks. But what happens when hierarchy enters the picture? If we're being really honest here, that means you will most likely be forced to work every holiday, birthday, and significant occasion up until a new hire steps in to take your place. The following story tells an account of a distressed server who had to work on Christmas Eve. Since OP was a new employee at the time, she was forced to give up her Christmas…

Customer Refuses to Tip Waiter After Demanding Menu Be Tailored to His Preferences

In my younger years, I worked as a waitress to support myself. My eight-hour shift at the restaurant would be followed by a job working in retail till the early hours of the morning. To be honest, though, I wasn't very good at being a waitress, and I didn't particularly love my work there either. The story below is of a stubborn customer who demands that his server adjust the quantity of the meal before accepting the order. And to make matters worse, the customer refused to leave a tip after th…

Karen Refuses to Tip Servers Despite Restaurant Continuously Complying With Her Demands

Karen Refuses to Tip Servers Despite Restaurant Continuously Complying With Her Demands

As a former server, I can attest to the fact that ninety-nine percent of customers are Karens. However, it's our positive outlook that keeps us sane. Though the evidence may seem to contradict our sense of optimism, we, for some reason, hold onto this notion that one day our table will greet us with a smile and leave us with a fat tip. The story below is an account of a frustrated waiter who has to deal with a table of Karens who won't pay the well-deserving servers. It's one thing when the tab…

Miserable Karen Berates Waiter Over a Side of Butter

Karens have been around long before we labeled them as Karens. A lot of boomers don't like the Karen label (usually because they display some Karen tendencies themselves), but boomers can't deny that the term Karen serves a specific and useful linguistic function. There didn't use to be a concise word to describe an entitled, impatient, cruel, boomer white woman who drives everyone up the wall. The absolute worst thing about Karens is the self-centeredness they seem to all possess. They perceiv…

Karen Admonishes Hotel Worker For Drinking at a Bar After Work

What you do outside of work hours is your business. No customer, parent, or boss should have any say in what you do when you're off the clock. I feel bad for people with highly scrutinized professions, like teachers, who need to drive an hour away to feel comfortable going to a bar. So many parents expect teachers to be more moral than them, even when the teachers are nowhere near their kids. It's a highly unrealistic expectation that shouldn't be projected onto anybody. Teachers aren't the onl…

Male Karen Harasses Airline For Making His Wife Clean Up Their Kid's Mess

Flying with kids is so nerve-wracking. The most stressful part is gauging whether your kids will cry or have tantrums inside an enclosed metal tube for three hours. The second biggest challenge is keeping them occupied, which is much easier nowadays with tablets and iPads. A tertiary concern might be that your kids could make a mess on the plane. Luckily, if they don't throw up or have an accident, most messes are easy to pick up! At least, so we think. Semi-famous people are obsessed with twee…
