By now, all of you out there have certainly heard about Karens, right?
They are the people (men and women, really) who make our lives difficult by going out of their way to be jerks to every single person on the planet. Especially for service industry folks.
So, what’s the best way to deal with these menaces to society?
Well, to kill ’em with kindness, of course! And a former waitress took to Reddit to explain exactly how she shamed an annoying Karen the right way.
Here’s how the story started…
And it sounds like they really loved the job, even if it’s not the most glamorous occupation in the world.
But, as all service industry folks know, there really are some rotten apples out there that do everything in their power to make other folks miserable.
Let’s see what happened with one particular customer.
Well, at least the husband seems nice…but this waiter was about to be left alone with the demon Karen…
I think we can agree that was a rude encounter, yes?
But the Karen turned up the rudeness.
Wow, talk about an entitled brat…and keep in mind that she’s an adult…
The story continued…and the waiter decided on a plan of action.
Uh oh, here we go!
Let’s see how it went!
Talk about laying it on thick!
This person probably deserved an Academy Award!
And the tactic worked…
The husband probably knew his wife was good at being horrible to people, so he was a little p*ssed off.
And everyone lived happily ever after…well, probably not Karen, but everyone else sure did.
And the waiter got an apology and a good tip out of it!
Hats off to a job well done!
Okay, now we want to hear from you.
In the comments, share some stories from your own service industry days about bad customers. We’d love to hear from you!
