* UnintentionallyUnsympathetic: [[https://notalwaysright.com/retract-the-tract/82467 This atheist couple]] are clearly meant to be the "good" customers in contrast to the stingy religious customers, but considering that the only reason they would mention they're atheists would be to compare themselves to religious people and their idea of "everything worthwhile about religion" is "nothing", they come across as incredibly smug and self-righteous {{Hollywood atheist}}s.

** The [[https://notalwaysright.com/time-short-scammer/110395 customer in this story]] is clearly trying to scam on this ice cream store, bringing in hundred dollar bills for two-dollar purchases early in the morning, going out to their car to hide small amounts of the change, and then coming back in to demand they get the 5-10 dollars they were short. Ordinarily they would get the brunt of the derision from the comments section, except that the manager (the poster of the story) falls for the scam ''twice'' before cottoning on, despite how many red flags there were (and even if it wasn't a scam, it's a bad practice to accept hundreds for small purchases because it depletes your entire supply of change for the day). Some people also pointed out that the hundred dollar bills could have very easily been fake (which is common in scams like this), meaning the poster could have been tricked into giving out hundreds of dollars instead of just the 15 that the scammer got out of them.

** The launch of "Not Always Healthy" in particular has gotten a lot of this. In most stories on the other sites you have a Jerkass or an idiot sure... but seeing these same type of people in medical situations verges disturbingly close on LethalStupidity, with a lot of posters who were treated wrong by their medical staff having afflictions that could cripple or even kill them coldly dismissed as something minor or overreacted to.

* StrawmanHasAPoint:
** In [[https://notalwaysright.com/fickle-over-a-nickel-part-2/79723 this story]], a customer in a Maryland Dollar Store gets wound up over being presented with a Canadian nickel instead of an American one for her change. Although the small denomination and the customer screaming at the cashier certainly didn't help the issue, the cashier's claims that foreign currency "is still worth five cents" and that "any store will accept it" simply aren't true.

** [[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.

* JerkassWoobie: The guy in [[https://notalwaysright.com/fighting-sleep-law/56733 this story]] who is a total jerk who constantly yells at the cashier, ending his ranting by telling them that there's AlwaysSomeoneBetter in the job field who will always do the same thing you do for cheaper and better. He was rude, for sure, but then you realize that this is likely what happened to him. Still doesn't excuse him for attempting to demoralize a complete stranger, but still...
