You can’t be picky and complain about prices. That’s too much Karen energy for one body. And it’s certainly too much Karen energy for a restaurant worker to have to deal with during a busy shift. But alas, that’s exactly what happened to u/wastingtimaway, who shared this thread on Reddit’s r/MaliciousCompliance subreddit.
Here’s how it all went down. Karen asked for two quesadillas that were gluten-free, dairy-free, vegan, basically all the things. Of course, we sympathize with folks who have dietary restrictions; that’s not the issue here. The issue was that the Redditor anticipated that if they rang up the order as two quesadillas, it would still be $24 despite the missing ingredients. They tried to help the customer out by asking if she wanted a lettuce wrap instead or something else that would be more bang for her buck, so to speak. Nope! She was insistent that she wanted the two quesadillas her way. So you can imagine her shock when she saw that the price hadn’t changed. Our opinion? This was 100% picky Karen’s fault.
