The Ice Cream Showdown: Who's the Real Diva Here? 🍦⚔️

In a world where promotions often mean more responsibility, our warehouse manager seems to think it means more entitlement. From demanding silence on his days off to expecting meals of his choice every night, he's been acting like a king in his own little castle. But the cherry on top was his late-night ice cream demand, complete with toppings! 🍒🍦 When our heroine finally snaps and tells him to make his own dessert, he plays the victim card, claiming he's unappreciated. Let's see what the internet has to say about this frosty situation... ❄️
