Dear readers,

Bad customers are such an everyday occurrence on this site that we thought we’d take things up a notch, to bad parent customers! Not only are they still entitled and terrible human beings, but they have their mini-me’s in tow, adding to, or sometimes the cause of, the chaos.

To help all those readers out there who need some solidarity with their fellow long-suffering customer service staff, we have braved the daycare of our archives to bring you 23 horrible examples of parenting, as witnessed by the staff.

Dear readers,

We’ve all been to an art gallery. While many of us (including all the NAR Editors) might not always understand what the art is about (banana on a wall?) we’d like to think that most of you know how to behave in an art gallery, or understand what art is for and how to appreciate it.

Then there are some people… who do not. We’ve rounded up 23 funny stories about long-suffering workers in art galleries, museum staff, and others who have had to deal with some truly artistic misbehavior.

Dear readers,

We post a lot of stories on Not Always Right tagged “Instant Karma”, usually about some satisfying payback or the bad guy getting some sweet comeuppance. But it can also be a positive force, and we wanted to make sure we gave some attention to some GOOD karma today!

We’ve rounded up 23 heartwarming stories about people who decided to “pay-it-forward”, that beautiful selfless act in which someone throws a positive action into the ether in the hope to make the world just that little bit nicer, without expectation of a reward – a true good karmic act should be selfless!

We hope it’s the little burst of positivity you needed today!

| Right | July 26, 2020

Dear readers,

Look. We get it. It’s hard to resist the urge to pet cute puppers that cross our paths! But just as you wouldn’t touch someone’s wheelchair, you should leave their service dogs alone, too. Some people seem to struggle with that concept.

This included protections for service animals. In honor of the occasion, we’ve gathered up 21 stories of people who just don’t seem to understand the important place service animals hold in the lives of their owners.

| Right | July 25, 2020

Dear readers,

Customer service employees usually have to maintain professional composure, smiling and polite, never seemingly bothered by grumpy and overbearing customers. Sometimes, though, the customer can say or do something so profoundly unacceptable, that a response is required, and when the perfect one-liner or comeback presents itself, it would be a crime not to say it!

Here are 23 stories from our archives about the perfect zingers to put those customers back in their place!

 

When Life Presents A Fork, Choose The Right Way – When the customer demands free stuff, remind them exactly what they’re already getting.
