Not everyone but most.
Trying driving in North Jersey in the AM or PM Rush hour.
The New Jerseyites show their true colors.

Thought Vermont was great but is seems like a disaster with the opioids.
These City-Data Vermont forums are enlightening!!

interesting that the OP characterizes several types of people "a waste of space", or is it ironic?

Is this a Jersey thing or a generational thing?

it is pretty ridiculous for someone who appears to live in a glass house to throw so many stones.

I love CVS for that reason! They give you TONS of coupons and then I noticed the amount I spend on drugstore makeup comes off the total.

Potanta, the subject
Of Boomer fantasy

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.
Thanks for selling me those gorgeous dresses. I can't afford them or else I will go homeless on the money I spend on dresses that give me personal space.

Maybe I should do the opposite of your makeup advice so our fellow New Jerseyans would stop staring at my beautiful face and so that they would not be sexually attracted to me.

You want to know how to deal with Karens? Drive around NJ in a blackened Ford Explorer pretending to be a cop. But beware, people will stare at me more for that.
