'Idk Karen': Woman calls the police to the pharmacy because dude won't let her cut in line, gets lectured by the cops about what is an actual emergency

'Idk Karen': Woman calls the police to the pharmacy because dude won't let her cut in line, gets lectured by the cops about what is an actual emergency

If there is one thing sure in life, it's that Karens are gonna Karen. There's no stopping it. If they have their eyes on the tantrum-prize, nothing can simmer down that entitlement bubbling up inside. One theory is that Karens have zero empathy; they are simply unable to see anything from anyone else's point of view. Makes sense, really, once you see them in the wild.

'We did exactly what they wanted': First-time homebuyers upset due to ‘missing items’ previous owners tried to leave for them, too late to back out of the deal now

Sometimes you can repeat yourself a thousand times and be as crystal clear as possible, and someone will still misunderstand you. Like, how much more do you need to spell it out? You literally spelled it out with written words multiple times. You would think this only happens from time to time, but nope. It happens all the time! It seemed to happen recently when these veteran homeowners sold their house to some first-time homebuyers. Now, they're not trying to play the blame game here, where th…

Isn't it just a kick in the teeth when you really go out of your way to help someone and they aren't even grateful? Or worse, they totally take advantage of your kindness? That knife in your back feels even worse when it's from your own family. But, family drama is no mystery to the world and happens often. Take this woman, for example, who recently cut her own sister out of her life. Her sister was a struggling mother of three, so she went out of her way to help her as best as she could. She d…

'I politely told her [no]… She kept yelling:' Karen mom thinks son is entitled to window seat during flight, demands unwilling woman switches with her, flight attendants put her in her place

If you have ever flown before, then you should be well aware of the in-flight edict. You can try and pull the ‘ole switcheroos with seating, nobody is really against that. But you need to approach it with zero expectations. You are not entitled to that seat switch. And if you are considering asking someone to switch seats with you, then you have to come to them with an upgrade, not a window seat for a middle, or ask for a front seat with more legroom and offer a middle seat by the bathrooms.

'Karen's lie... backfired': Diner insists on eating a specific meal, restaurant insists it doesn't serve that food

This customer was determined to get the exact meal she wanted. She really should've picked another restaurant . Every now and again, people get a craving for a random food they've had before. They might not always recall what restaurant it was from, though. For example, if you're meeting some friends at a restaurant and someone else chooses the location, you might forget the name of that place by next week. Then you're left craving a quesadilla or a burger from somewhere that you can't remember…

'I went home feeling pretty good about myself': Teen takes petty revenge on adult co-worker who constantly belittles her for being 16 years old

Remember interning? Remember working as an inexperienced and insecure employee for $0 pay? You would think that you more senior/ actually-paid coworkers would maybe take you under their wing and give you a break and some pointers. That's the internship dream! And then you have a nice little connection and mentor into the workforce you're trying to break into. Unfortunately, that is not always the experience. Sometimes a more entitled older co-worker will takes this un-paid “employee” and use th…

'We're not a daycare': Elementary school principal humbled by small-town mom after forcing students to walk 5 miles home from school

'We're not a daycare': Elementary school principal humbled by small-town mom after forcing students to walk 5 miles home from school

I feel like there are a few lessons I've learned throughout my lifetime that ought to be addressed. First of all, some individuals exploit their position of authority by using it for personal gain rather than the benefit of those around them. The lesson here is that, although it is something we are all familiar with, it says more about the person in power than it does about us. The second thing I've learned at the ripe old age of twenty-five is that motherhood is a superpower. A mother is stron…

'After 24 years I win': Woman finally gets satisfaction after landing petty roast on her real-life longterm frenemy

Do you have a frenemy? A frenemy is someone who acts like your friend in front of everyone, but is really your enemy—hence “frenemy.” This person can be the bane of your existence. Because in front of everyone, they seem like a friend of yours, so no one would believe you when you'd say they actually treat you like hot garbage. But when it's just you two talking, the backhanded comments and toxic interaction begins. So what do you do? This Redditor had 24 years to think or something and she was…

'What are you doing? My car is ruined!': Firemen total hydrant-blocking Karen's car to run a fire hose through it

You shouldn't ever park your car in front of a fire hydrant—and that's a known fact. It's one of those things, like parking in a disabled parking space, that immediately labels you as someone who has no regard for other members of society. Should your car be towed or smashed to smithereens, the rest of us would sit back, shrug, and agree that you had it coming… Sure, there's the possibility here that you yourself were in a rush, stressed, or just having a bad day and made a genuine mistake, but…

‘I ended up working at that place’: Random chef on lunch break gets accosted by restaurant's notorious Karen customer, impresses their head chef and gets hired

Sometimes a beautiful thing can blossom out of something horrible. For example, a higher-paying job can blossom from how you handle a Karen tantrum. Which is exactly what happened to this Redditor . She was enjoying her lunch at a restaurant she did not work at. She had interviewed with them, but it was too soon to know anything about that. She had only an hour for lunch from her actual chef job at a completely different restaurant, so was trying to down her food as fast as possible. All of a s…

'I almost lost my job over an entitled Karen': Theme park photographer encounters insensitive mother who yells at a Make-A-Wish kid's family, sees red

Nobody is safe from a Karen. If you are unaware of what a Karen is, lucky you. This is the kind of person who is so entitled that they would rather throw a 2-year-old-style tantrum to the police and any upper management that will listen than actually act like an adult and show some empathy. In fact, a Karen doesn't have an empathetic bone in their body. And a Karen can be any gender, age, whatever! It's about what they demand and how. This time a Karen reared her ugly head to a suffering family…

'I can't fire him, because he's my boss': Customer lets her kid wreak havoc in store because she's 'the owner's daughter'

'I can't fire him, because he's my boss': Customer lets her kid wreak havoc in pool store because she's 'the owner's daughter'

Some customers will look at a sign that says “Don't climb on this” and then let their kid crawl all over it anyway. It's not that they can't read the sign, it's not that they didn't see it. They just don't care. Lots of customers are entitled, and they think that any mess they make in a store is not theirs to clean up. They believe that since they're the prized customer, all employees need to bend to their will, and bring out a broom to clean up any mess they make.

‘She [laughed] and hoped I was happy having to work alone': Employee is the only one not invited to the company holiday party due to grade school level pettiness, HR does nothing

Company holiday parties can be SO amazing if you work in a healthy environment. When your coworkers are petty, managers entitled, and HR useless, then holiday work parties can turn out to actually be a huge source of anxiety. Take this recent employee who came to vent on Reddit. She was having a normal day at work until she stepped out to refill her water bottle and came back to an empty office. She looked around and found only one manager still there. She asked what was going on and the manage…
