Husband Goes To Pick Up Supplies Instead Of Her
From Redditor /u/The_Turtle_Moves_13:
My mom's a Karen. She is self aware she is a Karen my siblings and I send her memes about it. When my step dad divorced her last summer we were all amazed he lasted 17 years to be honest. None of us like going out with her it's terrible and my husband just straight up tells her no you aren't talking to the manager when we go in a place.
I'll tell you guys a story my step told us; they are farmers and own a small beef and bee farm. They have a store they go to for bee supplies. The owner called my step dad and asked him to please be the one to pick up their stuff because his staff was tired of dealing with my mom. He is the only one who went to the store for the next 5 years.A definite Karen?
Comes 15 Minutes Early To Warn The Staff
From Redditor /u/bycomparison:
My sister AND SIL are both Karen's. I will show up to restaurants 15 min early to warn them. I tell them if it's not done to their liking they WILL hear about it and they will make your shift hell. I'm just there as a warning.
I used to work in restaurants and those people made life hell. I do what I can to help. Generally my drinks are better and we get a free appetizer as soon as those two tornados walk in all hell breaks loose. Not enough ice, table is too cold, it's too loud, etc. I also tip really big bci DON'T want to associated with the two tornados.
I live overseas so I only see them 2 weeks out of the year. So it's manageable...
I only put up with their attitude because they could take my nieces and nephews away from me...I need my n&n to know I'm always here for them and they can talk to me about anything. I can't risk our relationship being tampered with, especially since I only see them 2 weeks a year.A definite Karen?
He Stood Up To Her Once
From Redditor /u/ToastyToast1111:
Not married to one, but my aunt is. My uncle is this soft spoken giant. He never stands up to her in any way. Except once.
At their daughters wedding, she was about to interrupt the ceremony to close a window because she was chilly. Everyone sitting close could hear her whisper " Im going to do it, but I don't want to be an asshole." My uncle, in a calm quiet tone says quickly "why stop now?" Almost as if his filter just missed this one. I swear I could hear my dad snort two rows back trying to hold in laughter. Keren was not happyA definite Karen?
Can't Go Out With Her In Public
From Redditor /u/octopusgas14:
My mum is a bit of a Karen, and we’re pretty much no contact now so that should tell you everything you need to know. Whenever we’d go out to eat it’s always too cold, they don’t have the brand of sparkling water she likes, they’ve put ice in her drink when she didn’t want it, she always has to make some kind of modification to her order etc. the list goes on.
It got to the point where if we were out shopping and she said she needed to return something I’d just go somewhere else because I couldn’t stand watching her be rude and argue with the staff.
My parents are divorced and I live with my dad now instead. Part of the reason I barely see my mum is because I’d have to meet her in public (go for a coffee or something) and I just can’t deal with the way she behaves in these places so I don’t go.A definite Karen?
