When People Didn't Know Who They Were Talking To

The anonymity of the internet allows a lot of people to pretend to be experts on things, as well as pass massive judgement and throw accusations around like a furious ape tosses fresh hot crap. Here are times that people were sorely mistaken and didn't realize they were talking to someone who knew a hell of a lot more then they did. Sometimes these end decently, like when the writer of Men in Black was told not to mansplain Men in Black.

Karen Orders Around Random Guy Who She Thinks Is Deaf Employee

The world is full of dumb spelling fails and at this point it doesn't seem like there's much to do about them other than laugh it off. You can't make adults go back to elementary school, and honestly who'd want them to when we get so many unintentional nonsensical humorous utterances out of it.
