No point in writing anything else; the OP certainly didn’t…

Just got pinged to this one. Guess what the comment section realised that the OP didn’t?

Oh, I remember reading that one and being like:

Or probably more: “You dense m**********!”

Oooh, yeah, that must be among the top “what was OP even thinking, submitting this story?!” cases.

I don’t even know where to start with this one. I opened the comments and disappeared like Homer Simpson back into the hedge.

I just read the story and thought “uh-oh.”

Seems like the primary response is ‘wow, what an irresponsible parent’

Very mixed and ambivalent reception here.

Thread consensus seems to be ‘a pox on both your houses’

You beat me to it!

OP seems to be of a mind of “deary me, look at the sort of japes that my kids get up to”, whereas most everyone else is “ARE YOU OUT OF WHAT PASSES FOR YOUR MIND???”

The last line of the story is controversial. It features what appears to be exaggerated AAVE as a sort of punchline to the story. Apparently, the punchline is that the racist/Islamophobic woman will be forced to deal with a Black person, and that’s a comeuppance of sorts. But just because someone is Islamophobic doesn’t necessarily mean that someone has an issue with Black people. (My mom is normal with most people, but racist toward Hispanic people.) Unless the CSR is also a Muslim (entirely possible; in the US, there are about as many Black Muslims as Arabic Muslims and 2/3 of Muslim converts are Black), but then that should be the punchline, not the race.

Also, a lot of people in the comments can’t tell what the accent is supposed to be, so showing the CSR’s race through dialect alone is a bit of a failure.

They knew the car had a problem from the first test drive, but they still went with it because the salesman said to. Guess how that story ends?

An older one, there’s ill feeling to someone who plays little role in the actual incident depicted

I was pinged to this one – we seem to be mostly in agreement (debating only on whether the sign possibly, but not certainly, being Halloween-decorated would change things) that OP was not, in fact, in the wrong for not entering a “Do not enter” sign.

OP dragged this interaction out more than necessary so they could make a little self-righteous speech.

The reception for this story? In comedy club terms: a tough crowd

I’ll say. At my place of work, my Technical manager and one of the Directors have a fork lift driver’s licence.

A lot of the comments focus on the fact that a ‘Flake’ bar is not called a ‘Flake 99’. I’m curious about whether this is a regional nickname for the chocolate bar or whether something got changed in editing.

Although I did find this when I checked google…
