When you work in the service industry, it’s almost inevitable that you will come across rude and inconsiderate customers. These “Karens” like to believe that they are right and you are wrong—even though it’s actually the other way around. They are not afraid to cause a scene and they won’t quit until they get what they want. Here are some of the worst customers real-life service employees have had to deal with:
1. A Look Of Absolute Horror
My mom was a Karen in both name and behavior. My dad had a massive heart attack. His brain was oxygen-deprived, and we weren’t sure if he was going to make it. We also weren’t sure how intact his mind would be. He was intubated, sedated, the whole works for days. My toddler nephew visited the hospital. He was dad’s special buddy.
My dad somehow roused from his critically ill state to wave his fingers and say a few words to my adorable nephew. A miracle! My mom tried to get my dad to talk to her, and then she did something absolutely appalling…she slapped him—pretty hard—on the chest because he wouldn’t say anything to her. She was jealous of a two-year-old. I mean, she hit a man in intensive care.
The look on the nurse’s face was absolute horror.
