I work with a bunch of Karen's. I'm sure most of you have a few Karen's in your life.
In case you're not in the know I thought I'd share the public service announcement to inform and educate.
Karen*is a slang term that is used to typify a person perceived to be entitled or demanding beyond the scope of what is considered appropriate or necessary. One of the most common*Karen*stereotypes*is that of a white middle-aged woman, typically American, who displays aggressive behavior when she is obstructed from getting her way; such women are often depicted as demanding to "speak to the manager" and sometimes have a variation of the*bob cut.
Remember, dont be fooled, Karen's come in all shapes, sizes and colors.
If confronted by a Karen in the wild your best course of action is to slowly back away in a safe direction. Whatever you do NEVER try to approach or feed a Karen.

NEVER call a Karen a Karen to her face. Cause then you get something I can't post.
Also a FCC compliant term for a female that just doesn't understand normal thinking

First, and you have to make a judgement call on this one before you decide to use it... Remain Silent & Expressionless as you allow "A Karen" to rant. When she gets get about 90 seconds into her bitch session, slowly lower your gaze to chest level. Depending on the attractiveness quotient of this particular "Karen" either...
1.) Slowly start to grin then nod your head a couple of times or
2.) Get a pained look on your face like your holding back a fart and shake your head from side to side slowly
Then ask her to please start over you were thinking about Pizza...
Or, let her rant on and on and summon your inner Ron Swanson and say, "I'm sorry but who are you"?
I had never heard the term before but I love it!
Using the name Karen as a pejorative... Brilliant! Doubly so since my liberal snowflake sister-in-law is named Karen! That's right, my sister-in-law was named after a pejorative!!! BWHAHAHAHA!!!!
I am so happy we have a few of you right thinking Californians around to keep us on the bleeding edge of coolness! Thanks for that!
