My dad went to 7-11 to search newspapers to see if I was in the newspaper for a middle school achievement. When he was reading it, the crazy 7-11 worker who was Arabic said that my dad was a cheap Indian who won't buy the newspaper and then my dad left. It is okay to stereotype Karens, because they are actually a waste of space on the Earth overpopulating NJ and everywhere and contributing to our traffic problems.

Perhaps if you used BenGay, + 40 might be attracted to your scent.

Thanks. Good to know you are not biased in any way.

Let's hope this happens to all the Karens: https://www.reddit.com/r/PublicFreak...to_exorcise_a/

No, it is clearly because those people are overwhelmed by your beauty, and they are sexually attracted to you.

Don't take it personally.
I's NJ ...people stand too close ,they tailgate,and they cut in various lines.
Not saying all NJ people are like this but many have horrible commutes and long hours and it shows up in their behavior.

Tough to make a decent living.. but go to Vermont and you will see people are much different.

Many years ago I stayed at a hotel down South. In the morning I was getting breakfast at the buffet and I overheard the waitress complain to another staff member that "he didn't even say good morning to me". I was kind of taken back by it but then just realized it's a whole different culture down there.

No, not everyone in New Jersey is like that. There are many, many nice people there, and I've met quite a few of them over the years. They are polite, helpful, and friendly in a Mid-Atlantic sort of way. That varies quite a bit considering that it includes all of New York, Pennsylvania, and New Jersey.

I noticed that these people stand close to me a lot and it is especially when I am making returns. Yet, they are the ones who have the Karen haircut and act like Karens when they make the returns. I hate when they stand so close to me when it is the store's fault for taking too long to do a return. I went to Harmon's today trying to do a return and they were taking too long to do it (the cashier eventually called another cashier to open up) and this old man was standing close to me rather than before the row of cash registers. I just don't get why people who look 40 have to do this. It's rude and it's like you are reading over my shoulder. Stores need to act like DMVs, place a yellow line on the floor where "customers must wait behind the yellow line".

Is this a Jersey thing or a generational thing? Or is it because I am Indian where people stereotype us as cheap?
Maybe it's you, and what is a Karen haircut? and if you are Indian why do Indian's not allow people to exit the elevator before trying to enter?

Maybe you are too old to know what a Karen haircut even is . Karen haircut is the typical hairstyle of your typical "Can I speak to the manager" type of customers. The customers who are a waste of space on Earth.

Lol I hate when people don't allow others to exit the elevator first.
