    'Do You Know Who My Father Is?' (Hint: He's No One Important)

    From Redditor u/Barkingpanther:

    A friend of mine saw a guy getting arrested in college - kid was struggling and cussing out the cops like crazy: “Do you know who my father is?!” A cop humored him and asked. “He owns the number one used car dealership in upstate New York!”

    We were in Massachusetts. They were unimpressed by his legacy and took him in.

    '911? My Internet Is Down'

    From Redditor u/nocreamjustsugar:

    I'm a 911 operator and had a man call 911 because the internet at the hotel he was staying at got disconnected. I told him it was not a police issue and he would have to talk to the hotel staff and/or just wait for it to reboot.

    He responded, "Not a police issue? This is criminal. If I unplugged someone's life support, isn't that a crime?"

    Idiot Tax

    From Redditor u/CudaRavage:

    Recently started a new job, and a college graduate was in my orientation class. Confused about income tax but straight-up blown away [that] she had to pay into social security. Something along the lines of, "I thought the government paid for that."

    She didn't even know what job she was hired for because her father handled all the application stuff.
