1-star reviews tend to shed light on the entitled and overly demanding customers of this world, but every so often, there’s a justified one. Here, we have a customer who went out for drinks with his wife in Lisbon for a rare occasion considering how expensive nightlife can be in their city. Let’s just say that they did not get the drinks they ordered.
His wife ordered a Long Island Iced Tea and received a Coke; the Redditor ordered a Moscow Mule and received a spiked Ginger Ale. Close, but no cigar. OP wrote a 1-star review on Google Maps that resulted in a savage response from the local bar owner, who called OP an “evil cynical man.” We appreciate that 1-star reviews can hurt business for local establishments but for once on FailBlog, we’re going to have to side with the customer here, who is neither evil nor cynical for ordering two standard drinks and receiving something entirely different.
What happened next is where the petty revenge comes in. The Redditor learned a clever trick about posting reviews on Google Maps that resulted in his review being the first thing that users will see for a long time. Keep scrolling below to learn how he pulled it off. For more stories like this, check out this post about how a group of students got some petty revenge on their teacher.
