The nickname Karen became a widely popular way to refer to people who think they have to right to do whatever they please and argue for literally everything, simply because they accept themselves as entitled to do so. We have all seen such moments, either in person or online. In our opinion, such moments can be extremely entertaining, as long as you are not involved in them, and this is why this list exists. It shares how some managers deal with such situations, and their answers are priceless. You can read the whole discussion on Reddit.
1. The security
This is the kind of thing that some people always refer to as a personal vendetta of some sort, but the person was just doing their job.
2. The server
It seems that sometimes customers take the role of the manager who must deal with the Karens out there, and this situation was something that required a bit of assistance.
3. The call center
This is the problem with Karens – once they start asking for ridiculous things, managers often prefer to satisfy their wishes, instead of putting them in their place like they should.
4. The fast food worker
It appears that some people have no regrets and they don’t know when to stop. This person tried to get their fake money exchanged for real, minus the cost of the meal.
5. The laugh
Some people get borderline crazy when they want something very simple, and can turn a non-existing problem into an issue that could affect a lot of people.
6. The pool
Here is how something seemingly innocent escalated into something very action-packed. This person had the audacity to slip by the rules meant for everyone.
7. The assistant manager
Now, this is something that proves how having such an attitude is not a good thing and it never pays off. This person should have known better.
8. The cop
It seems that you don’t need to be a manager to encounter a Karen, and this police officer described what it is like to stand against a Karen in their line of duty.
9. The power
Here is how one person described how everyone should act when faced with a classic Karen type of person. It seems that denying them whatever they want is the only solution.
10. The worker
This is why not all elderly people are worthy of respect. This person decided that she could have whatever she wanted, and we guess she cleaned up her act.
11. The dude
It seems that some people have already adopted the Daren term instead of Karen, describing male Karens. This post describes unacceptable behavior, to say the least.
12. The managers
We know that some people have the weirdest preferences, but this surpasses it all. We are not entirely sure why people act like that sometimes.
13. The favorite
If something bothers you as a customer, you should complain on time. This Karen ate her meal and then she stated it was the wrong one. No refund for her, of course.
14. The visitor
It seems that some people just feel the need to show that they are not happy with what they are offered. We guess some people are not going to learn.
15. The reminder
This is absurd, and people demanding this or that for free because they pay taxes is something that we have seen quite a lot. We understand Karen’s point, but this is not right.
16. The Ken
It seems that there is sometimes a good reason why people behave that, but it does not justify their behavior, as it is not other people’s fault.
17. The thread
Here is one opinion that most people would probably agree with. We understand that managers do it to get rid of the Karens, but it is not a working tactic.
18. The restaurant
This person realized that Karens can be funny when they are observed from a safe distance. Some people get furious but others are simply having a good time watching them.
19. The manager
Some people never grow up, and they remain kids inside, especially when it comes to moments like this. Acting like this only makes you an infantile.
20. The truck stop
It appears that some managers are having none of the things angry customers like to talk or do. We guess that this manager did the best possible thing.
21. The woman
Here is how a person tried to humiliate everyone in front of her, but the manager was having none of it. We know that people would try to push it, though.
22. The friend
People like this woman will come and go, but the important thing is that they should never be allowed to have their way.
23. The menu
Some people will never admit they are wrong, and we believe that they should never be tolerated, no matter what they say or try to do.
24. The young manager
The post you see here speaks of how people hardly accept that someone way younger than them could be a manager. We guess they almost never accept this.
25. The Pizza Hut location
It seems that people sometimes push it too hard because they want to have things their way. In this case, a person went too far only to have the desired discount.
26. The shift
This is one situation that might seem odd, but you can see that the person was right for having such a hunch, and avoided trouble for sure.
27. The patient
This is a way more serious case of a Karen acting funny, as it is related to a thing that people should never lie about, or fake it, just like in this case.
28. The store
Some people will never stop until they have their way, even if they claim to have seen things that never happened in the first place.
29. The years
Imagine how some people would go to great lengths only to have their way, and we know that this is something they sometimes get away with, too.
30. The college grad
Here is how some people had a really good time being a young manager and handling the Karen requests like a true professional.
31. The customer service
Here is how oen person described everything that is wrong with managers giving male and female Karens whatever they wanted in the first place.
32. The attraction
We understand that some people have personal preferences, but they need to know better when to demand this or that. Also, having a kid eat nothing but chips is a big no-no.
33. The picture
When some people’s weird demands and preferences cannot be met, these people start to take it all out on the staff members. which is appalling.
34. The shop
It seems that this Karen ran out of ideas, and there is no telling just how many times this has happened before. Quite a weird situation, actually.
35. The love
Some people never let their guard down and enjoy having Karens at their location, and this person revealed that a couple of simple phrases can literally chase away a Karen in a jiffy.
