** When it was announced that the editors would stop cross-posting stories(taking a story posted on one site and reposting it on another in lieu of a new story), the response was generally positive. When a story from NAH got cross-posted to NAW sometime later, the comments were split between those calling out the editors for not sticking to their word, and those thinking the former group needs to take a chill pill.

** [[https://notalwaysright.com/raising-monster-versus-monster-parenting/94156 The purse wielding mother in this story.]] Basically, one mother at the front has an abrasive and foul mouthed son. Another mother farther down is incensed at this, and when the first mother and child leave she turns around and starts beating her ''own'' teenage sons with her purse despite them not doing anything to warrant it. The submitter finds this hilarious and claims it restored their faith in humanity. Needless to say many people in the comment section did not share this view.

* BrokenAesop: Stories starring rich customers who received worse service when their clothes didn't show their wealth, ending with a lesson at not judging a book by its cover. Which would be fine if they simply dressed casually, but when they show up in the store dirty and smelly, especially if they could damage the merchandise by getting their dirt onto it, proves the customers just as, if not more, inconsiderate than the employees.

** 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" [[BrandNameTakeover 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. That said, simply asking for soda, without clarifying exactly which kind you want, then being dismayed when you don't get the right kind, is still not a very bright thing to do, no matter what term you use for "soda".

** [[http://notalwaysright.com/a-little-nuts-about-the-naming/49148 This woman]] repeatedly asks for peanuts, but what she really wants is cashews. But she calls them peanuts. Is she just being stubborn, or does she think peanuts and cashews are the same thing with different names?

* TheyChangedItNowItSucks: This is the reaction many commenters have to some of the changes made to the sites over the years, such as allowing prose stories (instead of the previous insistence that stories be presented in script format) and the posting of videos, some of which don't seem to have much to do with the site's premise at all.
