I have watched alot of YouTube videos describing peoples encounters with the wide Karen’s of the world. It has given me plenty of time to prepare myself for when my time has finally come. Well my friends it has finally happened and it was a wild one for sure. I apologize as this is on the app and it just happened. So I may not use the correct grammer.
So I am me, crazy Karen is waste of space (wos), brother is b, manager is m.
A little back story that plays heavily into this, I am remodeling my home which was built in 1902. Everytime I pull plaster off to get to the studs underneath I get showered in rotting wood and insulation (you know really black dust). Above my windows are old wasps nests, or so I thought. Well im thoroughly covered in dust and I’m cleaning and tearing these old wasps nests out of the walls.
Well to my astonishment there is about 30 wasps that come out at me, since I’m attacking their home. So I quickly make a bee line out of the room (pun intended) and block the under sides of the doors with towels to prevent them from escaping into the rest of the house. I called my brother and he agrees to come over and help. He tells me to meet him at Wally world, it will be about 15 mins. Perfect we will go together grab raid and whatever else we need to plug the holes that the wasps have entered through. I shouldve showered before I left but I didn’t.
So I drive to Walmart and my brother tells him to meet him in the food section as he needed to get some mac and cheese for dinner tonight when he heads home. So I walk into Walmart completely covered from head to toe in dirt, torn up jeans and my favorite rocket raccoon shirt that has seen much better days. I get a few strange looks from customers that see me and don’t approve of my look (like I honestly care as I’m fighting a war with bugs that have swords for tails)
I see my brother in the boxed dinner isle and walk up to him. We start talking asking how the rest of the remodel is going, while he is looking at all the quick options for food. When all of a sudden we hear the dreaded call of a wild Karen. At first it was ahem, then a louder ahem, followed up by “EXCUSE ME!!!” (I should’ve started by saying my brothers choice of dress attire is only matched by my choice of not showering before going. He is wearing a navy blue top followed by black jeans). In entered WOS ” are you gunna stop helping this homeless person and start helping a paying customer?” My brother is not one for wasting his time with someone who isn’t polite. So he blows her off. Again WOS starts with “EXCUSE ME? DID YOU HEAR ME?” My brother is starting to get irritated but not wanting to disrespect someone, says as politely as he can. “I’m sorry but I don’t work here”
WOS states “yes you do I see you helping this homeless man, now why don’t help an actual paying customer, I need blah blah item and I can’t find it.” Well I who at this point had it up to here with this lady chime in ( and I’ve been prepping what I would say after binge watch videos on youtube, thank you red wheel). “Listen here, im not homeless and he doesn’t work here. Im not sure what part of the education system has failed you. Critical thinking must not be something you’re renowned for. But my brother already told you he doesn’t work here. Now walk away before you waste anymore of my time!!” My brother and I decide it’s best to just go and grab what I need to grab and just leave. So we head over to where the insecticides live and start looking for ones that kill longer than just a spray. I pull my phone out to text my wife if we needed anything else as I’m in where laundry detergent and dish soaps live. Low and behold and to my surprise guess who shows up, its WOS, she spots my phone and rips it from my hands. WOS “You probably stole this from the display cases, I going to get you arrested for shop lifting and you (pointing at my brother goes) and I going to get you fired for not helping a customer and then assaulting me”
Before I could cuss her out for being a complete and utter moron, she marches up to customer service. She cuts in front of what I assume to be a nice couple returning something that didn’t work anymore. WOS “I WANT TO SPEAK TO YOUR MANAGER. THIS EMPLOYEE WAS VERY RUDE AND UNHELPFUL AND HE ASSAULTED ME. HE WOULD RATHER HELP THIS HOMELESS MAN INSTEAD OF A PAYING CUSTOMER, I WANT TO SPEAK TO HIM NOW”
The customer service employee goes and flags down a manager who takes one look at my brother and I, then looks up to WOS and asks what is the problem. WOS “this employee of yours is lazy unhelpful and when I asked for help told me to eff off and then assaulted me (pointing to my brother)” M “he doesn’t work here” WOS “yes he does, he was helping this homeless man find something to eat!” M “no he doesn’t work here” WOS “SO NOW YOURE LYING TO ME, ALSO I CAUGHT THIS HOMELESS MAN STEALING YOUR MECHANDISE” as she looks back with a victorious grin. M “ill get to the bottom of this ma’am”
So the manager comes over to me and asks my side of the story. We explain to her that were just here to grab insecticides to take care of a big wasp problem. My brother explains he was in the food section seeing what cheap options he had for a quick dinner would be and during that time WOS had approached us and was very rude. We then proceeded to tell her that we left her in the isle to go to the insecticides and she followed us and ripped my phone from my hand. Me “you can even watch the security tapes to see were telling the truth.”
M goes back to WOS “ill have to go watch the security tapes to find out what really happened, just stay put and ill be right back. WOS “you don’t need to do that im telling you, you should fire him and call the cops on that homeless man right now, or you’ll lose my business forever!!!” M “no I need to watch the tapes before we can proceed further” WOS ” thats not necessary I didnt need my items anyways!!!”
She starts to walk to the exit, with my phone still in hand. I yell to her ” you still have my phone if you don’t return my property back to me ill have the manager call the cops on you!!” She then proceeds to toss my phone into the trash and runs out of the store. The manager asks me “would you like to call the cops?” I told he no, I just want to grab my things and phone and head home. She then proceeds to let me have my raid for free and my brother have his kraft mac and cheese for free.
Crazy people, crazy people
