Nobody likes the taste of their own medicine.

What I mean is that people tend to get aggravated when they are treated the same way they treat others. I’m curious how a Karen would respond if we treated them like they treat their service staff. I’d like to think that they’d learn their lesson after having their fingers snapped in their face once or twice, but the reality is that they never do. I don’t think any of you need me to explain what a “Karen” is. Despite the fact that Karen is a perfectly normal name, it has come to be associated with the infamous short cut and the entitled attitude that goes along with it.

When I say “entitled,” I also mean being arrogant and dismissive toward your coworkers. Having to interact with people like this is no picnic, but I imagine we’ve all been there. Though I’ve never found myself in such a predicament, I’ve had more than a few encounters with Karens and have found it best to avoid them rather than try to reason with them. But no one has ever treated me poorly because they mistook me for a worker and I wasn’t wearing a uniform.

For the life of me, I can’t figure out why people like this exist. I get that you’re in a rush, but it’s never acceptable to treat another person that way. And instead of assuming, I just ask if they work there. It’s not hard to figure out who’s working at a store these days because most of them have uniforms. When I’ve been in this position before, rather than accusing my staff of being lazy, I’ve simply apologised and moved on.

I have seen that from time to time but it is none of my business as long as they act decently towards me.
