YMMV: Not Always Right


  • Acceptable Targets: Stories about the Twilight franchise abound. Most of them are named "The Twilight of Our Literacy, Part X".
  • Alternate Character Interpretation: 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?
  • Archive Binge: Combined with a mild case of Bile Fascination, 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.
  • Big Lipped Alligator Moment: A fair few stories are essentially someone's Real Life BLAM experience.
  • Broken Base: 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 Snark Bait.
  • Crazy Awesome
    • Combined with a big old shot of Hot-Blooded here.
    • 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.
    • The young man in this story.
  • Crosses the Line Twice: 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. 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 Screw This, I'm Outta Here! and moving to the United States.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: 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 September 2014, the latest version is 31. And no, we don't have hover-cars yet.
  • Inferred Holocaust:
    • If you think about it too much, it may become horrific.
    • Along with 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).
  • Nausea Fuel: 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.
    • 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.
  • Paranoia Fuel: 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 pretend they're robbers!
  • Strawman Has a Point: In 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.
  • What Do You Mean, It's Not for Kids?: The submitter's mom wants to know if Pans Labyrinth 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.
