You Won’t Believe the Reasons Why These People Were Banned From Places

Of course these stories are awesome

What better way to collect amazing and hilarious stories than through the great people of Reddit? Not many of us have been banned from a location, but for those of who have, it’s usually an interesting story.

Once I was banned from a Vietnamese restaurant in Queens because I forgot to tip on my $6 meal. I got chased down the street by a waitress to get the tip. I went to dig through my purse when I realized how tacky she was being and I said no. “Okay! Never come back!” I also have another story, but that’s more lascivious…

OrangeDevilBat: “Approximately ten years ago I stopped by a new movie rental place near my work and tried to rent a couple of movies. The guy behind the counter asked me for my license and when I showed it to him he said they wouldn’t rent to me because I lived outside of their rental area. I asked if they delivered movies, and he said no, so then I asked why the hell it mattered where I lived if I worked right down the street? He said I lived too far away. (I lived 10 miles away.)
When I went to leave, the guy asked me if I would put the movies back where I got them. I told him to f*ck himself. That’s when he said I wasn’t welcome in the store anymore. At that point I shouted, ‘Why would I come back to this store? Just to walk around and look at all the movies you won’t rent to me?’
A few years later the place closed down and my heart danced a little happy dance.”
