Throwing tantrums in stores. The only difference is that the adults tend to just yell and swear at retail workers just doing their jobs.
Not admitting to being wrong, or to lying.
Saying "I'm the kind of person who just can't -do- drama"
And then proceeding to make drama in every single situation
The all too familiar “if I complain loud enough, the manager will Have to give me what I want.”
Childish retail customers are the absolute worst.
Throwing garbage into parking lots / side of roads..
Can't seem to treat people who are different to them as people with all the same concerns and stress they have
Not being able to accept the consequences for their actions
Blaming their mistakes on other people.
Pouting in a highly visible way because you didn't get what you wanted, or someone hasn't treated you right.
Being totally unwilling to admit fault.
It's expected (shitty) behavior for kids, if you're a grown ass man and can't admit when you're wrong, just know that literally everyone thinks you're a cunt.
Matter of fact, there's a guy at my office who's proud that he's made people cry in the past. Idfk how people like this even get hired.
Some adults literally just never grow out of their attitudes or entitlement.
I’m a Valet, and a lot of times I’m running around when I work alone and I’m not near the entrance to my restaurant.
Anyway, I’ll have two people come out front while I’m away and I don’t necessarily know who’s first. It doesn’t take me more than maybe 30 seconds to get a car, but if one adult sees another hand me their ticket first, they’ll get visibly upset and start acting like “no, it’s *FINE*, I’ll wait” and it just makes the entire encounter awkward. You’re adults. I’m not around. You guys figure out who’s first, just be nice. It’s not that hard.
EDIT: Holy shit, I've never seen so many arm chair valets come out of the wood work on reddit to tell me *"Just ask who's next!"*. **I do.** Not sure how many times I have to say it here. Like I've said, not every adult is paying attention or is completely rational like everyone here. This isn't a common occurrence, but it happens.
Sulking on someone else's big day (birthday/wedding etc)
Not being able to discard the first piece of information they get if it proves untrue or circumstances change. IE "YOU SAID WE WERE GOING TO DISNEY WORLD TODAY, I DONT CARE THAT AUNTY MARIE DIED AND THE FUNERAL USED UP THE MONEY, YOU SAID WE WERE GOING! YOU SAID YOU SAID YOU SAID!"
Impatience. It makes me physically uncomfortable whenever I see an adult lose their mind over trivial shit. Like:
-Having to wait more than five minutes for their coffee at Starbucks.
There's like 50 people in here and one person making the drinks. Chill out.
-Guy threw his fish fillet at the cashier in McDonalds because there was cheese on it.
In the time it took you to: storm through the door, analyze the area, acquire a target, and throw your sandwich at them you could've just peeled the fucking cheese off yourself and gone about your day.
-Yelled at a waitress for spilling a drink (on the floor).
For starters, I doubt the waitress woke up that day hoping to spill a drink just to piss you off. Secondly, it it wasn't like it was spilled on you. Third, it took all of five minutes for them to make you another drink. Fourth, it's not like you were charged for the spilled drink.
Again, calm your silly ass down.
Sorry for the rant, but this is a real pet peeve of mine.
Edit: thanks for the gold stranger!
Acting as though the entire world revolves around them. Eg they play their music with the volume at 5000, you politely ask them to turn it down, they throw a fucking hissy fit and say they're an adult and can do whatever they want, trying to pick a fight.
