We have all heard this, right? “You have no power here”, or a similar expression that basically says the same thing. We have either said it, witnessed someone say it, or someone has said it to us. Either way, these moments could be frustrating, amusing, insulting, and even liberating. This thread on Reddit aimed to show how people experienced or witnessed such episodes, and it was a huge success. Some of the best entries posted on Reddit are selected and listed below. This is one VERY relatable topic. You can read the whole thread on Reddit.
1. The dinner
This is one usual story that most people would immediately relate to. We have all been there one or more times, but what this person enjoyed was the feeling she got after she stood up to her dad.
2. The ex
Sometimes, people do not understand the things they are told or refuse to understand them and keep their side of the story. This is where courts come in handy.
3. The critic
It seems that some people are constantly trying to make their partner feel bad, even if they do not realize it all. We guess that those people are sometimes going too far in their attempts to criticize.
4. The boss
This is nothing but the kind of behavior we despise. People who try to take advantage of others in such a way should really learn about basic respect. Plus, waking up someone on Saturday is a no-no.
5. The prescription
Some people are eager to have their way, but they only think they cannot be stopped. In this case, the people at this place knew their rights and obligations. This is how such situations are handled.
6. The arguments
Here is one post that is very relatable to us, and probably most people would recognize themselves in a similar situation. This is one person who was obviously having none of it.
7. The secretary
Here is how some people never back down, even when they have no other choice. As you can see, this person wanted a copy, and they got it by right.
8. The customer
This is a short story that whoever worked in customer care or service would relate to. There is always one person such as the one described here, and nobody needs such individuals.
9. The clients
They say that the customer is always right, but there are very good exceptions and this post reveals one perfect example. As you can see, messing around with the bartender is never a good idea.
10. The mother
Some people tolerate everything their parents say out of respect for them, but we guess that sometimes enough is enough. This person put her mom-in-law right where she belonged.
11. The store
Here is how this person got to enjoy a full month of revenge for all the annoying people they were used to dealing with. This short story sounds like it was a lot of fun doing it.
12. The wallet
The nerve of some people is beyond words, and they might be clients, but they can never do whatever they want. This is why the mall cop put them in their place once and for all.
13. The CEO
Now, this is one story that we never expected to see, but we are actually impressed by it. We get the fact that many people would be afraid to do this, but this employee did her job.
14. The girl
There are many people who can easily recall being part of a similar story. People who have just met you could behave in a really bad manner, but this is how they ought to be shut down.
15. The consultant
We are convinced that such small victories taste good, despite the fact we never really enjoyed such moments. Some people need to know their place and keep it cool.
16. The manager
There are too many people out there who seem to be too aggressive and toxic for their own good. As soon as you get into a feud with one such person, you don’t need to be polite.
17. The mother in law
Now, this is something that we actually laughed about, and you can see why. Some people simply don’t understand that those kinds of things are personal.
18. The lady
This is one of the best stories we have seen. It seems many people would love to force others to do this and that by pulling out a badge that shows their status.
19. The father
Wow, imagine this – your parents kick you out, and then they want to have access to your funds. This is unacceptable, and we believe nobody would put up with such a thing,
20. The director
There is one universal rule to follow when you must decide what is wrong and what is right – simply follow your gut. This person did not stand for injustice and did the right thing.
21. The cashier
Sometimes, the tables turn on those who think they can do whatever they want. In this case, one person got exactly what he deserved, and we loved the ending.
22. The consideration
We guess this happens much too often, and there is no telling just how many people are forced to put up with this. Still, there is a way to deal with it, and this post shows it.
23. The uncle
Dealing with people who are annoying and demanding for no reason can be tough, but there is always a strategy to make them regret they tried whatever they intended to pull off.
24. The weekend
Now, this is the kind of thing we want to see more of. As you can tell, this person was surely fed up with such clients, and decided to tell things as they are.
25. The parents
There is one universal rule, and that is to never argue with your parents, and even when individuals become adults, their parents could still scold them as they can.
26. The job
People sometimes try to have their way for some absurd reasons, and they often succeed. This is another type of story, as the person behind the cash desk did not back down.
27. The payment
Wow, this must have been a real bummer for the client in more ways than one. First, she had to pay, and second, the situation surely embarrassed her.
28. The cop
Here is how some people are too focused on doing their job, and they reach the point they compromise their results. Luckily for this person, he knew how to defend himself.
29. The opinion
You can bet that most people who dump their partner regret it at some point, and this post suggests the exact same situation as the one we’ve seen unfold too many times.
30. The army
Here is how some people always feel like they should demonstrate that they are superior to others. It seems that these folks are sometimes shut down in the best possible way.
31. The mother
Some people need to put up with a lot during their childhood. We are certain that people who realize their parents are abusive and decide to step up make the right decision.
32. The rules
There are moments when people should never allow others to give their opinion on how to raise their kids. We know that giving advice is not always a good thing.
33. The lady
Seeing this post made us believe that we have a low tolerance for such people. We wish we were there in order to put that woman where she belongs. We are glad someone did.
34. The car
Imagine the audacity of some people. This woman was rightfully taken into custody for leaving her kid inside the car under the hot sun, but later complained she was exposed to high temperatures.
35. The parents
The things some people do because they think they have the right to are sometimes too much to accept. This person’s mother probably learned a lesson.
36. The agency
This is one of the best situations you can be part of. People who need to cover their bills and debts sometimes try to find an excuse. This agency employee was having none of it.
37. The postal desk
Now, this is one classic way in which a person wanted to have her way. It seems that most people who are demanding things end up being shut down like this.
38. The support
It seems that there are more than a few ways to deal with a person who is annoying and refuses to do what is right. In this case, the person behind the counter did his thing and won.
39. The food
Many people love to insult others and to make remarks they shouldn’t. In this case, the former manager decided to have some fun, but the other person clapped back.
40. The friend
Here is how some people misjudge the situation and act as they could never end up being wrong. Unfortunately, these people were wrong to do all the heckling.
41. The visit
There are moments when people need to make a careful judgment about the way they act, but they sometimes make mistakes, too.
42. The mother
Here is yet another person who was not lucky enough to grow into a loving family. No person should have to endure such things during their childhood.
43. The customer
Being able to shut down people who try to threaten you with this and that is an awesome skill, and we guess this person has figured out a way to carefully dismiss such attempts.
44. The agent
Well, there is nothing better than a good comeback, and we are sure that this example would serve as a textbook rule for everyone who needs to use it.
45. The manager
Some people never try to defend themselves when they should, but others try to shut the wise ones fast and efficiently. The post you see here is one great example of such a situation.
46. The rude girl
It seems that those who wait long enough could have their revenge when the right moment comes. It is true what they say – those who act badly would get what they deserve.
47. The uncle
Here is how one person decided to put someone in his place for being too annoying and for threatening them. We like it when people do what they have to protect themselves.
48. The classes
Well, this is one perfect example of the whole “you have no power here” situation.
