Karen throws tantrum after local newspaper publishes article about her: 'She tells me I have absolutely no right!'

Karen throws tantrum after local newspaper publishes article about her: 'She tells me I have absolutely no right!'

This Karen needs to check herself because she's not that big of a deal. Imagine your local newspaper publishes an article that, in passing, lists the new board members of the local school. Now imagine that one of those board members, the Karen in question, throws a fit because she feels that she has been wronged. Why, you may ask?

OP received a (surprise, surprise) complaint from a local Karen who was absolutely livid that her name was mentioned in an article OP wrote.
