Dine N' Dash Diva Gets Her Comeuppance

Man, oh, man this young lady named Dee was on an entitled tear. She had the audacity to go out for nice meals and many drinks with her friends, and then ditch them whenever the bill arrived. Not only is that inconceivably rude to people she called her "friends", but it's also insanely insensitive to the folks working at the restaurant just trying to make ends meet. Fortunately, Dee's friends were able to teach her just the kind of lesson she needed.

Husband Flips out on Karen Military-Style

This entitled Karen got more than she bargained for after she tried to bully a fellow customer into bagging her groceries. When someone goes full Karen there's no way of knowing how it will go. People who know Karens have to deal with a lot of unpleasantness, and it can even end with that Karen making a whole neighborhood miserable. Retail workers and service industry workers know all too well how they operate, like this Karen who demanded the spiciest wings and didn't get a refund.

People Who Know Karens Explain What That's Like

The concept of a Karen is outlined by someone with crazy entitlement and a superiority complex, specifically targeted at anyone they deem "lesser than" such as servers and customer service reps. Anyone working retail sees people like this all the time, and their Karen behavior is so outrageous that they're like a cartoon. What people forget is that sometimes people have to live with them.
