Temper tantrums are a childhood staple that not all people outgrow—they just replace some of the crying with swearing. Adult tantrums are in a Golden Age, from the legions of Karens to the Capitol insurrection. People dished on the most childish behavior they've seen from adults when a Reddit thread asked, "What's the most ridiculous reason you've seen a grown a** adult freak out?"
These grown-a** adults acted like total a**es.
This chick, who is a VP, had a meltdown in our lunchroom because we were out of coffee creamer. I’m talking bratty five year old, bent forward, stomping her feet, and yelling “why can’t people stock the f*cking creamer?!?!” Everyone in the lunchroom just stared around at each other and we were speechless.-RexSTi72
I've been cussed out because the lady didnt hear me say “have a good night.” She got big eyed really fast going off
"you’re not gonna f*cking say thank you?!"
...i did ma’am..?
"f*ck you! F*ck you! F*ck you!"
Rarely does anyone actually say “thank you” back or even respond to my “have a nice day/night.” Someone wanted to fight over a pizza. I just said i was off at 7 if he wanted to discuss it, and walked away. Oh and the one that takes the cake for me is that ive actually had guns pulled on me, my wife, and father over a f*cking horse They didnt even take care of...-YoullSee-
