“I’m going to take out my laptop and play some computer games”: Immediate retribution when “Karen” tries to take over two seats
Usually, when you have a long day of travel ahead, all you need to do is sit back and walk away until you reach your destination. The problem, however, is that no one is protected from running into someone specific who tries to ruin their plans.
This Redditor passing by u/Zurera 301 I recently joined one of the platform’s communities to tell a similar character (and with a vengeance aspect) story that happened to her almost ten years ago.

Now, I’m sure many of you have at least once or twice been in contact with someone who would let you speak to a manager. The World Wide Web, or its users, to be precise, generously provided long descriptions to others and came up with the name “Karen” to summarize these people. is. However, the male equivalent of “Ken” also exists, but it is not so widely used.
It’s also worth mentioning that a significant percentage of people are not in awe of this kind of representation. Because they realize the term encourages dangerous stereotypes such as: Toxic in nature.
For the most part, anything involving “Karen” tends to cover stories of self-absorbed people without any pejorative connotations, although some people actually use the slang term to describe women. It doesn’t change the fact that it’s degrading.
But regardless of your take on the term, memes are what seem like an eternity, and stories keep pouring in. Some choose to keep it to their inner circle, while others decide to rely on popular online forums to share their opinions.A rather interesting experience – better than Reddit Do you have a platform?

I’m sure a good percentage of you have faced clueless passengers at some point in your life. But let’s do a quick recap.
The author planned to take a 14-hour train ride across Utah and Nevada to visit family while on vacation. Due to the busyness of the time of year, the train was full and all travelers were assigned seats. Now, when boarding u/Zurera 301 I discovered that an older lady was my seatmate, but the problem was that her purse was occupying two seats. Most people would think a quick “excuse me” would have worked, but surprisingly, the culprit was never called “Karen” for nothing.
Simply put, the “Karen” in question caused the scene. She demanded to see the woman’s ticket, told her to get lost, and eventually involved an attendant who clearly supported the author, instead ordering the passenger to move her bag. That’s not all!
As a bit of revenge, the original poster decided to take out his laptop and play SimCity on mute. Naturally, “Karen” couldn’t contain herself and she told the author once more, but the universe and her attendants were really not on her side that day.
many commentators did not sympathize u/Zurera 301The Redditor used some strong remarks like “decrepit old woman” and “hagha” and even said she wished her former seatmate had an “unfortunate holiday” literally eight years from now. It was probably the delivery that did it. An incident has happened.
But others praised the way the woman was treated. Come to think of it, as long as everything you say is true, the netizen will not disrespect her fellow passengers (at least not face-to-face), stay calm in a rather uncomfortable situation, and manage to get through it. I was even able to Return to her in her harmless way.
What do you think about this situation? Do you have a ‘Karen’ story to share?
