Good thing the helmet actually was the thief's, and not stolen in and of itself.

Or did something stupid like go through self checkout with 20 cans, and 'miss' scanning two to save money, somehow thinking she'll still get the discount.

Killgrave's really upped his game, I see.

Hey, at least the driver's more concerned about the dogs than his lunch!

Looks like it was in the box because it was obviously going unused.

At work we have drinks priced at $3.33 for members... well, you can see where that's going. Happens maybe once or twice a week, but never had anyone complain about it.

Accurate enough signage if it was at my uni bookstore.

Gotta wear those safety glasses too - who knows when your screwdriver will slip and send a screw flying out at speeds fast enough to gouge an eye out?

Here in Australia if it's in a round bun then it's called a burger. If it's between two slices of bread, it's exclusively a sandwich - it's a far more narrow definition over here.

I like it - shot down with cold hard facts that the customer is too ignorant about to even consider.

Not to mention definitions vary by region. Going from Australia to the US it was confusing as bugger to find out that our biscuits are their cookies and their biscuits are more like scones, and a chicken burger is actually a sandwich... At least cookie classification aside, it does give a good explanation as to which is which!

Ugh, I had a similar issue with Amazon once. Showed as having been delivered to a chosen location for pickup, but they never sent a confirmation email with the details to actually be able to pick it up. Had to go through contacting them three different times through three different people before they finally cancelled/refunded the order with claims like it had been incorrectly scanned out as being sent off for delivery but not actually left the warehouse, that I didn't have to worry about the wrongly displayed delivery status and to be patient etc. Bright side was that I got offered a bonus credit voucher and free international shipping on my next order, so made sure to tack on a few more items to get the most out of it.

Pretty amusing, but unfortunately the embedded video cuts off the bottom third of the video frame, hiding both the video player controls and the narration subtitles to go with it. Not that it's in the control of the person posting this, of course.

Ugh, I hate the mindset of 'blame the staff' for lack of sales rather than focusing on the shortcomings of the business itself, or factors completely out of their control. You can promote the company all you want, but you can't make people visit and spend money like in your ideal little unrealistic fantasies.

I love pointing out those sorts of unexpected sales to customers if I see them. At my store, someone at corporate recently had the bright idea of having a big stationary sale for slow moving items, marking everything down to 50c each, and it's all been flying out the door at a fraction of the original price. Of course, now that stock has already started selling, we've gotten a store email to say 'oops, that was a bit too large a hit on our end of financial year profit margins, here, put these items back up to only 30%/50% off.' Wee bit late for that kiddos.

More like 'Something went wrong with a batch on the factory floor - let's mark up the price and claim it's the latest fashion!'

It's a shame more people don't use it in general - it takes almost all the pesky guesswork out of spelling through accents, mispronunciation or whether it's an m or an n.

I wish there were more meal options that didn't include a drink.

Smarter thing to do would be to block out the url before posting, because like you said, people and warning labels alone...

If that's all the description given to the groomer was, without further explanation or clarification, they deserve the result. Poor dog doesn't, though.
