* [[http://notalwayslearning.com/the-power-of-a-kenya-do-attitude/30445 The security guard in this story]] started teaching himself about electrical equipment because he was tired of his houses burning down from faulty wiring. Not only does he save a tech-inept tech student from himself and fix several other students' busted projects, the last line of the story says that he knew enough to test out of all but the most advanced classes! [[note]]For those that might not get what that means, the guard already knew enough about the subject that only the more advanced classes would have provided him with additional knowledge, and so, after passing tests to prove it, he was excused from needing to take the redundant courses.[[/note]]

* [[http://notalwaysright.com/we-wish-jew-a-merry-christmas/48431 When an anti semitic woman spits on a bagger]] after learning he's Jewish and start saying racist things to him, the manager calls out on her actions, pointing out if it wasn't for him and other Jewish workers, their Christian coworkers wouldn't get to spend Christmas Eve with their families and tells her to leave. When she refuses to leave and tries to face another customer who call her actions un-Christian like, she gets an OhCrap when she learns the other customer is her pastor! The pastor not only tells her apologize to the bagger and leave, but he expects to see her in church in the front row for bad behavior on Christmas Day!

Then the cashier she spit on calls her out on not knowing the difference between Christmas and Easter for good measure.

-->'''Manager:''' “Ma’am, I am from Iran. I watched the Taliban kill my two sons because they wouldn’t join. You want me to issue a credit after making that kind of a threat? No. I’ve flagged your account. You will receive no further credits. Pay your bill through the automated system before the fifteenth to avoid a late fee, which also will not be credited. Goodbye.”

* [[http://notalwayslearning.com/trying-to-reverse-engineer-bigotry/34194 This class here.]] An old substitute teacher actively refuses to let the only girl in a class even enter the classroom, because [[UnfortunateImplications he thinks it's a boys-only class]] [[StayInTheKitchen and that her only purpose of taking it was to impress a husband]]. [[IAmSpartacus On the second day, the entire rest of the class decides to sit out the class with that girl]] for the entire two weeks that the substitute is there, and when the normal teacher returns said substitute was forced to retire early by the superintendent and school board. A stand against misogyny indeed!

* [[https://notalwayslearning.com/made-sul-furious/45450 This story]] is just a cascade of awesome. The submitter gets stuck in that one group where only one person (her) ever bothered to do any work. After the umpteenth time this happens (with the teammates [[RegueInAudacity looking condoms on a school computer]] no less), she [[TranquilFury quietly snaps]] and goes to the teacher who agrees to give them the grades they deserve, standing by that decision when they complain. Then when one of the group members [[DisproportionateRetribution pours sulfuric acid on the submitter's hands]], she proceeds to calmly go over to the sink and run cold water on her hands (helped by the fact that it was diluted for school use but still). Then this exchange happens.

--> Submitter: *coldly and while giving him an unblinking DeathGlare* “Thank you; now I have you on assault.”
--> Guy: *getting uncomfortable because not only did the acid not burn her but also DeathGlare* “You don’t have s***.”
--> Teacher: “Actually, she has you on either aggravated assault or assault with a deadly weapon with 27 witnesses. Submitter, do you want me to call the police?”
** The police weren't called since the submitter and teacher just wanted to ScareEmStraight but it worked in spades.

* [[https://notalwaysright.com/let-that-entitlement-slide-into-the-bus-lane/59527 Let That Entitlement Slide Into The Bus Lane]]. An awesome manager remains verbally polite with a customer but delivers a metaphorical "Up yours!" by tearing apart the customer's ridiculous complaint before her very eyes. His response against any potential fallout? WorthIt!
