It's time, once again, to marvel at some idiots who don't know how to handle the world:

Cry-Baby #1: Natasha West

The incident: A woman was told she was violating the terms and conditions of Denny's all-you-can-eat pancakes offer.

The appropriate response: Nothing. You got caught.

The actual response: She allegedly tried to attack a waitress.

On November 6th, 27-year-old Natasha West was eating a $4 order of all-you-can-eat pancakes at a Denny's in Oak Lawn, Illinois.

A waitress allegedly noticed Natasha sharing her pancakes with the other people seated at her table, and told her that this was not permitted. This is why these type of promotions are called "all-you-can-eat" rather than "all-you-and-a-bunch-of-other-people-can-eat".

According to police, Natasha responded to this by swearing at the waitress and attempting to punch her. She and her friends then fled the restaurant without paying. Natasha reportedly kicked the door several times as she exited the building.

Natasha was caught and arrested shortly after. She was charged with assault and damage to property. One of her friends paid the Denny's bill.

Cry-Baby #2: A mystery person in Denver

The incident: A store, that has existed for longer than ISIS, has the word "Isis" in its name.

The appropriate response: Taking a photo for Instagram.

The actual response: Someone vandalized the store's sign.

Isis Books and Gifts is a New Age store in Denver, Colorado. Named after the Egyptian goddess Isis, the store has been in business for 35 years.

Last weekend, someone threw a brick through a portion of the store's sign. The owner of the store, Karen Charboneau-Harrison, thinks the act was motivated by the recent terrorist attacks in Paris.

"We're all very heartbroken [about Paris] so I don't know if somebody walking down the street just saw our name on the sign and kind of lost it for a moment and threw a rock through it," Karen said in an interview with Fox 31 Denver. "Or if it was an ignorant person who actually thought this was a bookstore for terrorists, I don't know."

This is not the first time the store has been vandalized since the rise of the Islamic State. In addition to having her sign smashed once before, Karen says people have also thrown paint across the front of the store, and smashed the door.

"It does get a bit tiresome," said Karen. "Plus expensive."
