So what is a Karen – A Karen is a pejorative slang term for an obnoxious, angry, entitled, and often racist middle-aged white woman who uses her privilege to get her way or police other people’s behaviors. As featured in memes, Karen is generally stereotyped as having a blonde bob haircut, asking to speak to retail and restaurant managers to voice complaints or make demands, and being an anti-vaxx , Generation X soccer mom .
When you are out next time and you see someone complaining about something 99% of the time it’s a Karen. Please don’t be a Karen especially in this day and age with all the new procedures and guidelines places have to follow. This is a learning curve for everyone as this is new to everybody. You do know you not getting a glass of water or waiting a extra 10 mins longer for service is gonna happen even to you Karen.
For those of you who are a Karen just remember Bob spelled backwards is still Bob even for you!!! Also i’m sorry when you ask for a glass of water we don’t pour it out of a Voss bottle.
As we all start to learn the new norm can we all do our part and call out all the “Karens” we know? If you read this and think you might be a Karen just stop it! Nobody likes you and nobody ever will! I’m sure this blog will get flagged by a Karen.
On that note if you are out and you see someone dealing with a Karen you should buy that server/bartender/manager/owner a shot they definitely deserve it. My rant is over
Stay safe out there,
