At some stage in pass-examination, she asked the officer who'd made the decision why precisely she was pulled over.

"So I used to spin the rear tires, and it became the back end that swung out?" "Sure ma'am, it truly is accurate."

"And you're positive that is what you saw?" "Clean as day, ma'am. The light became green, you stepped on the gas, and the rear tires broke loose below energy." "The rear tires broke free underneath the power?

I show up and greet the bank employee—alongside an attorney and a very irritated looking lady.

She is definitely impatient to get into the safety deposit container. i get the lock open and swing the door out, and she's screaming, "allow me in there!," So I stepped out of the doors and let her rush by.

A few moments later, I heard a string of loud curse phrases: it was empty. Then she busts out and storms off, but while she surpassed she threw down a single piece of paper that had been in the vault.

27. The Shipping Story Where We Go Down In A Blaze Of Glory

Our district manager did not purposely rectify my may that would reflect in the promotion I was promised. This was a huge problem for me and after almost six weeks of him not addressing the problem, I called the corporate HR and they came down on him as if they had come down on him like  the fires of Mount Doom.

He also insulted me in front of my customers saying I was not being a team player. After 6 months, we were told that our store would close and the staff will be transferred to other stores but not me. I was told I would never be welcome in the company again as I was not a team player. Thus, I would be laid off if the store closed.

Later, he said he wanted me to oversee shipping and our product to other stores based on a list he had of what store receives what.

You guessed it right, none of the stores received what they wanted on the list. The 3 weeks I was there, I shipped whatever I wanted while playing my own music on the store speakers and exposing customers to some loopholes in the store policy. 

What would he do? Fire me?

28. Having To Witness A No Show

Once, I had to be in court for a speeding ticket and the prosecutor did not offer me a deduction, so I plead 'Not guilty'. When we were in the courtroom, the judge called for the officer who pulled me over to the stand.

The officer did not show up and the judge seemed to be irritated already and asked the prosecutor where the cop was. The prosecutor accepted the fact that the officer did not arrive only assuming that I would not show up or I would plead guilty.

The judge seemed quite annoyed and asked the prosecutor if he could wait an hour for the cop to arrive. The judge lost his cool and said that all of us have arrived on time and this idiot is not bothered to be doing his job right. The judge dismissed the case but wasn't dismissed from the table as he wanted us to wait there for 10 minutes and stare while he chewed the prosecutor a new one.

I most definitely enjoyed witnessing the man get hewed out for messing up the entire trial—it was like a bonus to me for winning the case!

29. Daddy Knows The Best

We have a building materials store and it was a B2B model i.e. business to business which means not much into retail. Once a man came with his son and wanted to buy a $2,000 air tool so I quickly was alerted because he would attempt check or card fraud.

It wasn't a big deal because we get 2-3 for the same thing every week, however this man did not seem so good at attempting to commit fraud and handed over a bad looking card. I tested the chip and it did not work. I said I can write in the numbers and process the sale, in order to surely check it is a fraud but I never accuse them, hence I ask for cash.

Majority of fraudsters can read my face and understand that I know what they are doing. Usually, they say they would go to the bank quickly and get lost. However, this boy gets aggressive. I am annoyed so I look at his son and ask him his name, John it is. I say, 'John, when you grow up you don't want to be stealing stuff like your daddy and also suck at it, too.' Oh boy!

30. I Shall Take It As a ‘NO’

I used to work as a cashier at a huge supermarket chain and placed products and worked on the behind the scenes management. One day, I was called back and it was a regional manager who said there is a deficit after my shift as a cashier and it is getting beyond control—about $10 to $50 every shift.

They also tried to threaten me saying they had surveillance videos of me stealing the money and would call the cops. I said, sure, get them here as I will just wait. After 30 minutes, the cops arrived and saw the footage and there wasn't anything where I stole the money. The cops said there wasn't any evidence against me so they left.

Nevertheless, they still decided to fire me on the spot and even banned me from entering their store across the country. Few weeks later, I received a call from a girl who was working there and covered for my smoke breaks when I was the cashier. She confessed while choking from crying that she was the one stealing the money while I was on the breaks. She had  charges pressed against her, she did 120 hours community service and paid a huge fine.

Few days later, I received a call from the store's regional manager apologizing for the inconvenience and asking me if I want to return to my old job. I said, 'Screw you' and hung up.

31. Looking For An Age Appropriate Date

A very epic mic drop moment happened to me when I was 16 and went on a date with a boy. I literally looked like I was 11 and he believed me, even though he was in his 20s. He asked me, 'Lets get a drink, yeah?' I felt weird telling the truth so I agreed and it was the worst mistake of my life. Fast forward, when we are outside the bar to get inside and the bouncer checks the ID asks about mine. I said, 'Sorry, I must have left it home' I defensively exclaimed.

He figured out that I was lying and I tried running in the bar like I had a chance. I also caused a tantrum which became a HUGE scene, in a way to be in line with my true age. Later he looked at me with a blank expression and I was suppressed. By this time, we were in the car leaving and it was pretty quiet until he went like, 'Let's go somewhere age appropriate then.'

I was shocked, 'Age appropriate?', he was not mad at me. I didn't know what to do and just simply sat in the car feeling mentally beaten. We drove for a while and I honestly thought I was going to get kidnapped. I was confused but it started getting clear to me. Lastly, we pulled up to a Chuck E. Say cheese and he left me there.
