* AcceptableTargets: Stories about the ''Literature/{{Twilight}}'' franchise abound. Most of them are named "[[TakeThat The Twilight of Our Literacy]], Part X".
* AlternateCharacterInterpretation:
** The well-mannered boy who takes his mother on a "date": naturally sweet and charming, or raised so tightly and harshly that he was effectively forced into those manners?
** In [[http://notalwaysright.com/this-is-why-were-in-a-recession-part-19/30215 this story]] about a cashier trying to get enough money out of a customer who is setting up a cable account for her friend, said customer says at one point "All right, fine, but now Iím giving you ''my'' money!", implying part of her stubbornness with making the full payment was because she'd been given only the original $40 from her friend and was frustrated that she had to pay the remaining $83 out of her own pocket.
* ArchiveBinge: Combined with a mild case of BileFascination, this site can occupy you for ''days''. But if you want to pick up where you left off in the archive, read it by month. The /page [=URLs=] aren't stable because the site presents newest posts first.
* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: A fair few stories are essentially someone's RealLife BLAM experience.
** [[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.
** [[http://notalwaysright.com/for-the-sake-of-demonstration/15732 This]] customer orders ice cream, then asks the worker if they believe in unicorns, then puts the ice cream cone on his head and leaves.
** [[http://notalwaysright.com/disco-stu-gets-our-approval/22175 A case of suddenly bursting into dance, and then just getting back to what you were doing before.]]
** [[http://notalwaysright.com/whoever-said-easter-isnt-egg-citing-is-hopping-mad/22955 This guy]] rides into a donut shop wearing an Easter Bunny costume and riding a unicycle. He makes his order, slams his head on the counter, dropping an egg, and rides out, donuts in hand, without another word. The egg contained exact change and a big tip!
** [[http://notalwayslearning.com/the-course-is-strong-with-this-one/30932 One from Not Always Learning]] courtesy of a Star Wars geek teacher.
** [[http://notalwaysright.com/sends-you-a-kiss-by-wire/36508 This customer took the Michigan J. Frog approach to telemarketers]].
** A student on Not Always Learning [[http://notalwayslearning.com/never-was-there-a-tale-of-more-woe/35004 interrupts a discussion of Shakespeare]] for [[ZombieApocalypse more pressing matters]]. The ending clinches it as a BLAM:
---> We then resumed our discussion like nothing had ever happened.
* BrokenBase: Some people aren't fond of the more obviously fake stories, claiming they ruin the site's integrity or are just poorly written (Said stories usually go as follows: Either the narrator or the manager call out an asshole and they get applause/tips from everyone else). Others enjoy them as pure SnarkBait.
* CrazyAwesome
** Combined with a big old shot of HotBlooded [[http://notalwaysright.com/lt-ripley-vs-the-wasp-queen/8007 here]].
** [[http://notalwaysright.com/bird-brained-part-6/6853 This]] married couple uses loud bird calls to find each other in case they get separated in large stores.
** The unicycling Easter bunny mentioned under Big Lipped Alligator Moment counts.
** [[http://notalwaysright.com/when-customers-actually-give-a-jam/23895 The young man in this story.]]
* CrossesTheLineTwice: [[http://notalwayslearning.com/the-power-of-a-kenya-do-attitude/30445 The security guard in this tale]] had his home in Kenya burn down not once, not twice, but ''three times'' by the age of 22 due to faulty wiring, so he learnt how to diagnose wiring in order to prevent it from happening again. [[spoiler: Pity that when he was 23 it burnt down ''again'', but this time due to a drunk driver in a truck, not bad wiring. Cue him doing a ScrewThisImOuttaHere and moving to the United States.]]
* HilariousInHindsight:
** [[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; as of May 2015, the latest version is ''34''. And no, we don't have hover-cars yet.
** [[http://notalwaysromantic.com/wrestling-with-the-concept/19892 This story]] about [[AcronymConfusion getting the World Wrestling Federation mixed up with the World Wildlife Fund]] given that it's now the [[{{Wrestling/WWE}} World Wrestling Entertainment]] due to such confusion.
* InferredHolocaust:
** [[http://notalwaysright.com/knocking-the-door-of-opportunity/8470 If you think about it too much]], it may become horrific.
** Along with [[http://notalwaysright.com/it-turns-out-you-can-be-too-safe/2001 this one.]]
** Arguably, any story where a customer tries to get their kids involved. Delinquency of a minor is a ''major'' offense, and if the offender already had a criminal record, the reports could have DCS take them away from their family (though if things were that bad, it would be for the better).
* NauseaFuel:
** [[http://notalwaysright.com/life-is-stranger-than-the-fiction-section/30405 One story on the site]] mentions a pair that were once thrown out for vandalism in a library, because they refused to pay late fees. How were they vandalizing it? They were ''pissing and shitting all over books, and had been at it long enough for each of them to destroy an entire section while the police were on their way.''
** [[http://notalwaysright.com/avoiding-spring-bathroom-break/38553 Another story]] has a customer who lowers their pants only to reveal that they are wearing an adult diaper that is soggy and yellow like popcorn butter.
** [[http://notalwaysright.com/no-point-gagging-over-spoiled-milk/41970 This story]] has a customer trying to get a refund for a jug of spoiled milk without the receipt. To "convince" the cashier that it's bad, she ''dumps the rancid milk all over the counter''.
* ParanoiaFuel: It's bad enough when a robber enters your store and threatens you with a gun. Now we gotta deal with people who like to [[http://notalwaysright.com/another-darwin-awards-candidate/1852 pretend they're robbers!]]
* StrawmanHasAPoint:
** In [[http://notalwaysright.com/fickle-over-a-nickel-part-2/37648 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.
** In [[http://notalwaysright.com/fixing-for-a-fixing/40978 this one]], while the bigoted customer was certainly not a pleasant individual, that in no way justifies the girl ''physically'' assaulting him (an assault committed by a minor is still assault) and the customer had every right to defend himself (by restraining the girl). The narrator claims the customer only held the girl, but the other customers then lie and tell police that he tried to hit her, and then reward the girl for escalating a verbal confrontation to a physical one. The whole affair reeks of a terrible life lesson in the effectiveness of mob justice.
* WhatDoYouMeanItsNotForKids: [[http://notalwaysfriendly.com/rated-rolling-r/35248 The submitter's mom]] wants to know if ''Film/PansLabyrinth'' would be a good movie to show to kids asking on behalf of her friend. Thankfully after the submitter explains how violent the film is the submitter's mom says she will tell her friend not to show it to them.
** ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAuto'' inspired a whole recurring series of these, [[http://notalwaysright.com/?s=Grand+Theft+Innocence "Grand Theft Innocence"]]. It's currently at Part 12.
