"Karens" get a lot of flack these days.
A Karen is usually a middle-aged white woman who's fond of asking for the manager or, even worse, calling the cops when people don't follow pointless rules or when things slightly disrupt her day. In this age of social media, many a Karen has gone viral for bullying hourly workers or sticking her nose in other people's business.
In fact, one woman recently posited that Karen is a "sexist, classist slur." She immediately got called Karen.
But according to one Reddit thread, there are some Karens who use their powers — speaking to the manager, meddling, and snitching — for good. Here are the stories of Karens who actually helped someone out.
I had a "Karen" come into my work demanding a manager [...] The manager, Pat, was a horrible person. Slimy. Pat began to yell at Kimberly. The manager threatened to fire Kimberly. Kimberly started crying, because her mother had recently passed away, and she was heartbroken.
