I knew a girl named Karen when I was a wee lad in Co-Op City before my parents moved to Jersey.

One day I took her Big Wheel and started riding it.

She bit me on the wrist, and I got off it.

Karens rolled hard back in the early 70s.

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?

Potanta, the subject
Of Boomer fantasy
They want him so badly
Knows what he wants to be

Inside them there's longing
This boy is all the rage
Face staring, he's so close now
This boy is half their age

DON'T STAND, DON'T STAND SO
DON'T STAND SO CLOSE TO ME
DON'T STAND, DON'T STAND SO
DON'T STAND SO CLOSE TO ME

I bet your mom is a Karen.

Here is how you deal with people like her:

START WEARING DRESSES.

This is a brilliant way to protect you personal space. Look for an ensemble like this:






Change you name to Potantoinette.

Upgrade your day look makeup to a fancier evening one. I recommend a smokey eye, and either a metallic/glitter lip or a frosted lipstick layered over a matte one.

If you're feeling sassy, bust out some vogue moves. Strike a pose, there's nothing to it.

Look, my Jewish behind was taught how to punch a penny well by my parents, but about 12 or 13 years ago, I saw something that truly astonished me...

Macy’s was foolish enough to publish $10 coupons with no minimum purchase for Black Friday. I was working at Grand Union, so I had access to as many coupons as I wanted. I took 3, I think, and was happy to get a few free tchotchkes at the Paramus Park Macy’s.

I then went to the store at the Garden State Death Star just for kicks. At the store, I saw a family that had to have consisted of at least 30 people. Each had several bags of items, and a bunch were on line at every register, all with multiple coupons and sub-$10 items. To top it off, in the center of the floor was the Queen of the family, who had to have been at least 250, sitting on the floor with dozens of bags surrounding her.

Like James Evans, the CEO of Macy’s must’ve said, “Bet we ain’t doin’ that **** again...” after that debacle.

I’ll let y’all draw your own inferences about the group(s) to which this family belonged.

Thanks. I never knew how to spell “tchotchke” before this. Also, what’s Grand Union?

I pretty much much know how to spell it, but I always have to look up to get it right.

Well that's blue collared. Those jobs are hard work, but they are great to get away from the Karens!

Grand Union was a major supermarket chain. The company folded in early 2001.
