This seems to be a tale of the boy who cried Karen. Of course, the real culprits in this situation are the actual Karens of the world who have made it nearly impossible for most employees out there who have been so disturbed by entitled behavior to distinguish the real Karens from the rare well-intentioned and kind-hearted customer who just has a question.
In this case, the customer who requested to speak with the manager simply wanted to know if food donation boxes had been set up for an upcoming Thanksgiving food drive. It turns out the customer worked for a community outreach program and was tasked with collaborating with local grocery store chains. He shared his story via this thread on Reddit’s r/EntitledPeople subreddit.
Unfortunately for the Redditor, the employee he spoke to had been so affected by prior Karens that he made a ridiculous assumption and attempted to throw OP out of the store. The worst part is that other folks in the store made the same assumption and cheered on the employee. Yikes! What have we come to as a society if we can no longer separate Karens from philanthropists?
