Girl says she's already married. Drunk guy says he could probably beat up her man. Girl doesn't deny that possibility, and since the guy is there, drunk guy tries to pick a fight. Guy tells drunk guy that he should probably leave "before he gets hurt", then clarifies [[ExactWords that he never said]] ''he'd'' hurt him, [[ActionGirlfriend as the girl floors the drunk with one punch.]] Drunk guy asks bartender to have girl and her husband thrown out.

* A customer jumps in front of the line. [[http://notalwaysright.com/in-line-and-out-of-line-part-6/40125 This father]] shames her via PolitenessJudo.
* [[http://notalwaysright.com/if-only-she-could-hear-herself/40178 Here]] a lady suffering from a major case of SmallNameBigEgo tries to get a waitress fired because she was wearing hearing aids (which the lady claimed were headphones). The manager gives her a TheReasonYouSuckSpeech and asks her to leave the restaurant, and then her husband also tells her off. After the lady leaves the rest of the table ''(9 people)'' all give the waitress huge tips.
** The husband deserves credit for not falling into the AcquiredSituationalNarcissism that his wife obviously had--the couple was rich was because he'd won the lottery.
* [[http://notalwaysright.com/its-about-to-get-crazy-horse-up-in-here/30050 "In my tribe, I am called ‘Ejects-Bigoted-A**-hole-From-Premises’. Now kindly get the f*** out."]]
* [[http://notalwaysright.com/fixing-for-a-fixing/40978 A little girl]] kicks a homophobic jerk in the shins repeatedly. He grabs her, then tries to get her arrested for "assaulting" him, and promptly gets arrested for assaulting her. Several customers offer to buy the kid candy. She wants to buy a [[WrenchWench 50 piece toolset instead]].
* A customer yells at [[http://notalwaysright.com/in-threat-of-a-disconnect/35384 this operator]] because his cable TV has been turned off and there's a football match. Not only does stay calm the entire time, not only does she shoot down all of his "arguments", but she flat out trolls him by telling him that ''she's'' going to watch that match.
* [[http://notalwaysright.com/providing-a-self-service-service/42782 This customer]] notices an old man struggling with the self-checkout and decides that'd be a good time to teach her daughter how to use it, giving the stranger a full walkthrough in the process.
* [[http://notalwaysright.com/the-mother-of-all-refunder-blunders/45650 It may have taken the submitter an hour to lecture his mother that she was in the wrong,]] but when she finally had her HeelRealization, it was worth it. For bonus points, the only reason the submitter didn't hook up with the clerk is that he's GenreSavvy enough to know that she would not get along with the mother-in-law.
* [[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!
* [[https://notalwaysright.com/heroic-rescue-required-aisle-three A thief punches out a cashier and steals from the register]], [[LaserGuidedKarma only for another customer to punch him out on the way out.]] Said customer proceeds to ask if he can finish his shopping before having to testify, like stopping a robbery was just a minor inconvenience.
* [[https://notalwaysright.com/great-discrimination-part-4/54300 An Islamophobic asshole is dragged out kicking and screaming after insulting and assaulting a Muslim customer.]]
* [[https://notalwaysright.com/catcher-in-the-sky/4417 Catcher in the Sky]]. One for the ill-informed customer for a change, because he managed to catch a wild bird ''with his bare hands''. Doubles as a CrowningMomentOfFunny.
* [[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!

* [[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]]
** Not to mention, at first he thought the sound of the exploding lightbulb was a ''gun'', and he immediately burst in screaming, "THE FUCK WAS THAT? [[PapaWolf AIN'T NO ONE SHOOTING UP MY SCHOOL!]]"
** He also found a replacement lightbulb with the correct voltage. He took it from the ceiling. When it was still on. And he barely notices that it's hot.

* [[http://notalwayslearning.com/she-has-a-mother-thing-coming-part-2/31939 This mother]] goes into MamaBear mode after learning that her son was being abused by his racist teacher. During the Civil Rights Movement!
--> '''My Mom:''' "You!" *walks closer to teacher* "Don't you EVER lay a finger on my boy! If you have anything to say, you talk to me. I better not hear from him that you hurt him, because I'll skin your a**! Got it?"

** And another one, where a Mama Bear responds in kind to a teacher's abuse of a student. [[http://notalwayslearning.com/flipping-out-over-the-desk/35610 "Now clean it up."]]
** A double dose in one case of a student with UsefulNotes/AspergerSyndrome. [[http://notalwayslearning.com/the-opposite-of-closeted-behavior/35957 The staff don't know how to deal with her, so they stick her in a closet]]. Not only is the student's mother livid and continually calling the school principal over it, but when ''another parent'' learns what the staff are doing with this student, she not only chews out the staff, she pulls her kids out of the school and convinces ''two dozen'' other parents to do the same!
* [[http://notalwayslearning.com/witness-versus-witless/32271 This bully]] gets what's coming to her.
* [[http://notalwayslearning.com/the-principals-of-bullying/32323 This principal]] does ''not'' stand for bullying. After hearing that a student was savagely beaten by one, he calls the bully into his office, and after an extended period of time persuades the bully to apologize and promise to never bother the student again! He really looks after his school.
* A minor example, but [[http://notalwayslearning.com/basic-chemistry-meets-advanced-physics/32192 this chemistry teacher]] crossed his ''very'' large lab in about a ''second'' because he heard a student scream and thought they were hurt. Impressive ''and'' dedicated to his students' safety!

* The student in [[http://notalwayslearning.com/being-very-candid-with-her-camera/32980 this story]] deserves a medal.

* A student complains about "gays talking about gay stuff". [[http://notalwayslearning.com/dont-ask-dont-tell-just-got-told/33659 This teacher]] agrees... and forces the student to stop "talking about straight stuff", I.E. shutting him up.
* [[http://unfiltered.notalwayslearning.com/post/76163253028/middle-school-sweden-im-considered-the-kind-of This teacher]] braves a fire to rescue a class from a teacher who didn't think it was a real fire and ended up knocking her out to save her ass.

* [[http://notalwayslearning.com/that-text-book-has-finally-gone-to-his-head/34685 A girl]] tells off a bully by whacking him over the head several times with her textbook (which he took from her). The teacher promptly gives the bully detention.
-->'''Bully''': "But she's the one that hit me! That's not fair!"
-->'''Teacher''': "Yeah, but I've ''never'' seen her do that before. You must have done something to deserve it! So, detention!"
* [[http://notalwayslearning.com/teaching-knowledge-is-a-laughing-matter/35919 This professor]]. As a student, people called him a nerd...
--> '''Professor:''' But I won. They're all working at [Local Grocery Store Chain], and here I am teaching you guys. I tell a bad joke, 140 people laugh. That's power, right?
* [[http://notalwayslearning.com/bullying-the-bully-into-submission/36520 This student]] who not only calls out a girl who was bullying her, but a teacher as well who refused to do anything about it in front of the school at assembly. Even other teachers thought what she did was impressive, and best of all, the bully didn't bother her again.
* [[http://notalwayslearning.com/science-has-a-sweet-side/40331 This chemistry teacher]] begins the year by sacrificing some gummi bears to the "lab gods" so no one will get injured that year. The best part? ''It worked''.
* [[http://notalwayslearning.com/when-toxic-personalities-become-intoxicated/30131 This.]] Just because someone has been extremely patient with you, don't think she can't knock your ass out in an instant.
* [[http://notalwayslearning.com/was-bra-ced-for-a-different-reaction/36792 A girl's]] head of year, male teacher, and headmaster decided she was in the wrong for punching a male classmate after he twanged her bra multiple times and the teacher refused to do anything. They and the male student get their asses verbally handed to them by the girl's mother, who goes on to report the situation to the Board of Governors and OFSTED.
** You can tell it's going to be good from the very first exchange between the mother and the headmaster. The head sarcastically thanks her for "finally" joining them; she responds by sarcastically apologizing for how busy it gets working in an emergency room, giving an abused child over 40 stitches.
* [[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.
