'She blamed him for EVERYTHING': 20+ spouses and family members of Karens speak out, commiserate, and provide tips on how to cope

It's certainly not easy to deal with a Karen customer or a Karen coworker, but what about having to deal with being married to one? Or rather, having a Karen in your immediate family? There are several tips and tricks for how to cope with this unfortunate but very real phenomenon. Firstly, find someone else to confide in, whether that's another family member or, ideally, a professional because this Karen is probably going to cause you to go into therapy at some point anyway. Second, draw bounda…

'Your adult children don't talk to you and you don't know why': 20+ signs of a trashy parent

It's no secret that part of being a parent is messing up. Ideally, like in all things in life, we learn from our mistakes, but there are some parents out there who will never learn and who are practically walking red flags as a result of how they treat their kids. As these folks on Reddit pointed out via this r/AskReddit thread, there are countless signs that you or someone you know may be a trashy parent. Whether it's yelling at your kids in public or refusing to believe your kid could possibl…

'A guest should eat what they are given': Guy gets even with Karen mother-in-law after 10 years, hosts dinner with food she can't eat

When Karens put negative energy out into the universe, they are bound to get that same energy in return. Here, we have a Karen who purposely disregarded her son-in-law's dietary issues and served a Christmas dinner with nothing for him to eat. He never forgot that feeling and it wasn't until a decade later when he finally got some payback. Sure, it's polite for a guest to eat what is served to them, but in this instance, these were known health issues that the Redditor made sure his monster-in-…

Supermarkets are already a relatively overwhelming experience for most of us, akin to navigating a labyrinth that's been starkly lit by harsh-white fluorescent lighting while a string of the most infuriatingly mundane acoustic covers of songs that were popular ten years ago play omnipresently throughout.

'[The kids] basically cried the whole way': Entitled mother doesn't understand why other airline passengers are upset with her noisy kids, thinks it's worse for her

Having kids is the greatest joy one could experience, or so any new parent will tell you, despite that they haven't slept since the night before they became parents, and the bags under their eyes tell a different story. In fact, it's more than likely that this entire sentiment is really just a combination of sleep deprivation-fueled delusion and resigned coping with the fact that there's no going back.

'Even a free meal isn't worth the frustration': Children of Karens share their worst experiences in public with their parents

Everyone gets embarrassed by their parents in public, but this one goes out to all the children of the entitled Karens and Kevins of the world. They have it so much worse than the rest of us. As someone whose greatest level of embarrassment during childhood as a result of something my parents did was when they danced up and down the aisle of a movie theater one time, I cannot imagine what it would be like to have a quintessential Karen as a parent. The closest I can get to that experience was w…

Sometimes, Karens get served a much-deserved dish of instant karma, but other times, they get exactly what they want. Here at FAIL Blog, we're used to triumphant stories where the little guy stands up for himself and calls an entitled Karen out on her nonsense either with some fun malicious compliance or delicious petty revenge. That being said, every so often, the Karens win and we are left to pick up the pieces of the messes they have made in the process.

'She's still finding reasons to complain': Neighborhood Karen faces off against Entitled Parent over community playground

As we age, we have a tendency to become less tolerant of those around us. We might even feel bad about that waning tolerance, yet we find it happening all the same. For example, I, now in my 30s, don't care at all for the screeching sound of children. Am I a Karen? Maybe—but regardless of that, it remains a certain fact that I would never intentionally buy a house adjacent to a park or a school as I can not abide by loud noises like the screeching of children. But here's the trick when it comes…

'She was the most delusional customer I ever had': Karen tries to return costume the day after halloween, five years after she bought it

Typically, purchasing something means that you intend to keep that thing for the duration of its life or until you pass it on. This directly contrasts with renting something, where you lease it for a set period of time for a fee with the expectation that you will be returning that thing by the end of the period you have paid for it. Both arrangements have their advantages, by owning something it's yours and you can do whatever you want with it, but this usually requires a much higher buy-in cos…

'Most hours are in exchange for accommodation and meals': Wild post from off grid couple seeking unpaid child care draws criticism online

It's perplexing how many people think that they've come up with something clever when all they've done is reinvent something that humans have known about for centuries and made illegal for a reason. You can't just go around asking to do unpaid work for free as if being in your mere presence should be enough to excuse the fact that you're not being fairly compensated. Yes, sometimes this is called an “unpaid internship” but there's another word that comes to mind for pretty much any other time t…

'We were late and the movie theater wouldn't move [the] time': Top Spooky Karens of the Week (October 31, 2023)

In the spirit of Halloween, it's about time we shed light on some of the spookiest phenomena known to humankind: Karens. This week, we have Karens making scenes at a variety of locations, including movie theaters and on the road. Additionally, we even have thieving Karens, YouTube Karens, and mothering Karens. These days, it seems that Karens are everywhere and there is nothing scarier than that reality. Most recently, I had an unfortunate run-in with a Karen at the airport, who couldn't stand…

Just because you don't know how to parent doesn't mean you can just dial 9-1-1 on your five-year-old! Seriously, what was this impatient Karen thinking when she thought the best way to discipline her child for stomping around the room was to call the police five times and have them deal with it? News flash: all five-year-olds have the occasional behavioral fit, and if you really need a second pair of hands, consider working with her teachers or a professional. Otherwise, you're wasting time and…

'Foolish, FOOLISH man': Husband complains his wife should have dinner ready because she does nothing all day, she maliciously complies and refuses to clean anything

You would think most of us would know at this point that being the primary “breadwinner” in a family does not mean you are entitled to make a fuss when dinner is not on the table upon your return home from work. It's 2023, people! We should have more realistic expectations of all parties in a family dynamic, and therefore, we should have equal respect for the financial and emotional contributions that all parties make. Unfortunately, these kinds of expectations do not gradually fizzle from one…

'Oh, okay. So you own the street?': Entitled Karen says woman's dog isn't allowed to bark on the street

A lot of things can set off Karens in the neighborhood, but a fellow neighbor's brief barking should not be one of them. We know the barking wasn't incessant, as the encounter was captured on video. We also believe that the dog's barking was just a means to an end for Karen, who clearly felt that the woman filming the video did not live in the neighborhood. Karen also did not approve of the fact that the woman parked her car where she did, claiming that if she really lived in the neighborhood s…
