** [[http://notalwaysright.com/fighting-crazy-with-crazy-part-2/1749 For example,]] a customer at a dog grooming salon enters with one blind cat, one shaved, and one dressed like a clown, believing that the salon is a military school where they can leave the cats for one year, refusing to take them to the kennel since it supposedly contains penguins and bacteria. The manager responds by offering some sea ice from the e. coli farm.

* DarknessInducedAudienceApathy: A lot of people are turned off by the websites because of the sheer amount of stories about ignorance and cruelty. This could be why the latest site(as of March 2016) is "Not Always Hopeless" which focuses on more cheerful, heartwarming stories. And even that [[DownplayedTrope isn't completely immune to this]] because a lot of stories, even if they all have heartwarming endings, have depressing beginnings involving jerks that wouldn't be out of place on the other sister sites.

** [[http://notalwaysright.com/upgrading-faster-than-a-fox-in-a-fire/8067 This one.]] When this was posted, the latest version of Firefox was at most 4, and major releases were very rare. Since then, they have started being released much faster; about five years after the story's posting, the version number had jumped up by ''thirty'' digits. And no, we don't have hover-cars yet.

** The wife in [[http://notalwaysright.com/a-lack-of-branding-understanding-part-2/40283 this story]] is probably from a part of the US where "Coke" actually is used to refer to soda in general, making her dismay over actually being given Coca-Cola a case of culture shock rather than stupidity[[note]]That said, simply asking for soda then being dismayed when the wrong kind of soda is brought out is still not a very bright thing to do, no matter what term you use for "soda"[[/note]].

** [[https://notalwaysright.com/36199/36199 This story]] has a customer attempting to exchange a package of chicken for a new one...the one she has now was decided to have been left in the car in 100+ degree weather for several days in a row and has gotten so bad and rotten that it has turned green and drives one of the customer service people from the room. That's not the end of it, though: When the customer realizes that she can't exchange the chicken, she retaliates by picking up the rotten chicken ''slamming it to the ground''; causing green rancid goop to get all over everyone in the immediate vicinity.

** It is increasingly common for a story in which the customer is SarcasmBlind to come under fire in the comments section, because it is poor form for the customer service personnel to sass them in the first place.
