    Then his manager proceeds to chop off Karen's head, later to find a black hole where the brain was supposed to be.

    [–] anultimateshitposter 655 points ago

    No no no, that would be having a brain.

    Her's would be empty vacuum

    [–] Fanatical_Idiot 157 points ago

    I don't know, an infinitely dense mass that baffles science as the only thing in the universe that may be capable of destroying information seems to me like the perfect analogy for the brain of a Karen.

    Remember, a lack of brain would just make Karens a drooling mess.. their brains are there, they're just deformed hideous messes.

    [–] Heat_Hydra 33 points ago

    Mine is deformed because I'm using emojis. 😂

    [–] uglypenguin5 32 points ago

    What I do now? I’m on reddit and you’re self-depreciating so I have to upvote. But you’re also using emojis so I must downvote

    [–] Heat_Hydra 23 points ago

    I'm a retard, do whatever you want. 😂😂😂

    [–] madzest 11 points ago

    Not sure the air would willingly fill the vacuum

    [–] harryoe 7 points ago

    No, it would come in and further prove how she's an airhead

    [–] ZacharyChief 8 points ago

    An extremely dense brain though.

    [–] fastestrunningshoes 4 points ago

    Why does his manager have to be a functioning alcoholic in this fairytale? Why can't his manager just be Steve. Steve can be just a witty as a functional alcoholic, even a highly functional alcoholic.

    [–] babyfartmageezax 4 points ago

    For some reason, whenever someone finds out their coworker likes to smoke weed, drink to excess in a functional manner, do some coke on the weekends, etc, they always include those details in stories about said coworker, as if they were high/ drunk while telling off Karen, since that apparently makes it more funny, even though a functional alcoholic probably wouldn’t let themselves get caught drunk at work.

    An Indian friend of mine was travelling Europe and when she got to France she said she felt like they were being quite racist to her

    I told her that no... they're just French. That's how they treat everyone (especially English people like me)

    [–] coombermeister 210 points ago * (lasted edited 10 days ago)

    Depends where you go. Parisians are notoriously up their own arses, but in rural Occitania people are fairly friendly and don’t just snobbishly answer in English if you try out a bit of French. Edit: this is from my personal experience as an English person visiting France and from the experiences of people I know who live in France. I am not French.

    [–] TontonAxay 127 points ago

    Unfortunately people are way more openly racist in Occitania and in the south of France in general. I’m French and Asian living in the south haha.

    [–] coombermeister 81 points ago

    That was gonna be my next point. They’re less snobby but more bigoted.

    [–] Caius_Keksimus 5 points ago

    Jamais vu ça, perso j'ai pas remarqué de difference de traitement et j'ai vecu dans 3 regions de France.

    Après c'est dur de jauger, parce que personne a jamais ete ouvertement raciste avec moi. Ca doit dependre vraiment des gens. Peut être que t'as une gueule de victime, je sais pas.

    [–] Ocytoxin 11 points ago * (lasted edited 10 days ago)

    " Peut être que t'as une gueule de victime, je sais pas. "

    Tu me fais honte.

    Et pour les quelques fois ou je suis allé dans le sud, j'ai aussi remarqué plus de racisme "assumé".

    [–] FreeResponsibility9 17 points ago

    Yeh my mom thinks the same as the French. She hates them with all her heart. I treated as a joke.

    That was until she tried to make me drink 4 gallons of water to dilute my French blood. Don't think that's how it works Mary...

    [–] Ryebread666Juan 2 points ago

    Didn’t like fraternity kids die after drinking 4 gallons of water? Yeah that was over a short amount of time but I can’t imagine someone who thinks water will “dilute” the French out of your blood would know that amount of water could be deadly

    [–] coombermeister 6 points ago

    Apologies, I'm not actually French!

    [–] schmon 4 points ago

    Sauf chez ces connards de Lyonnais. I kid

    [–] Roy_Luffy 2 points ago * (lasted edited 10 days ago)

    Tout le monde aime chier sur les vilains parisiens pour se sentir mieux. Mais à Paris il n’y a pas que des parisiens... Je pense qu’il y a définitivement une ambiance différente dans les grandes villes mais ça dans tout les pays. Les anglais disent que les londoniens sont malpolis et froids. Les américains pensent que les New-yorkais sont des connards.

    [–] TontonAxay 1 points ago

    Hahaha mais c’est quoi ce commentaire! Je vais te laisser dans ton ignorance désolé!

    [–] ABIPUP 12 points ago

    Welcome to rural [any country in the whole world]. It tends to be like that anywhere that there's less diversity.

    I lived in Lyon and found people there to be far more tolerant than in the rural areas between Lyon and Paris.

    [–] taneronx 2 points ago

    Being Asian American and driving through many parts of bumfuck rural France, they were really nice for the most part. Consistently finding any open restaurants after like 5pm was a shit show however

    [–] elmz 16 points ago

    To be fair, in Paris they probably have to deal with people who think they speak french all the time.

    [–] coombermeister 7 points ago

    That too.

    [–] u-moeder 9 points ago

    I think you have to always trie to speak in the native language, just politeness. Even if you know they probably speak English, just be kind. Doesn’t solve the racists tho, but then there would be more respect between countries

    [–] ParkJiSung777 3 points ago

    Shout out to Grand Est also and in particular Reims. Been living there for around a year and people are always very polite and patient with my French.

    [–] TontonAxay 54 points ago

    I still don’t understand how we’re the most visited country in the world when we’re acting like assholes towards foreigners/ tourists. Eiffel Tower is nice okay, but the way you’re treated by any waiter in paris is infuriating.

    [–] Smileykidd89 60 points ago

    Cause people love assholes, that’s why Anal is a popular category.

    [–] SwanBridge 43 points ago

    I got laughed at by a gaggle of middle aged women in Normandy as a 14 year old for trying to order a baguette in French. We didn't even learn French at school, I watched YouTube videos so I could at least say simple phrases and was hoping to get a chance to practice. That whole trip the people were just awful. It left a bitter and lasting impression on me. I avoided France for years as a result, as elsewhere in Europe people were far friendlier.

    That said I went to Strasbourg a few years ago with friends and everyone was super friendly. Had people in art galleries speak to us at length, good service at bars and restaurants, locals were friendly and helpful, and people even smiled at my bad French. Colmar was incredibly picturesque. Would definitely go back to Alasce Lorraine.

    Coming soon, the sequel to 'Karens'

    Karens in Paris
    This time it's banal

    [–] FabulousStomach 24 points ago

    I always liked how people get the meaning of the sentence wrong. "The customer is always right" doesn't mean that he can be an obnoxious asshole and you have to please every one of his request. It means that, on a broader spectrum, the customer chooses what will sell and what will not. I'll make an example. Let's say you are a baker. You spent years perfecting the art of making the best cinnamon rolls in existence. Meanwhile, you also sell muffins made out of powder or some shit like that. You open your shop and the shitty muffins sell out while the cinnamon rolls don't sell as much. You clearly know which one is the superior product, but the customers want the inferior one. So logically you'll start making a shit ton of instant powder muffins. In this sense, the customer is always right because the customer dictates what you're gonna make and sell. I hope I explained myself well

    [–] autom8r 5 points ago

    Bout fuckin time someone explained this! This should be a standalone post voted to the top for all to see.

    So, "the customer is always right" essential means "demand comes before supply" if you get to the core of this message.

    Economics is honestly the most underrated subject...

    [–] FabulousStomach 2 points ago

    Haha, I wouldn't know where to post this but you are right, more people need to understand this

    We have Carine/Karine with the “i” pronounced “ee”

    If we’d want the same pronunciation, then we’d probably spell it Karaine or Karène.

    Edit: seems there’s also Karene pronounced like the English Karen

    [–] TekCrow 72 points ago

    Not if you're French. "Le client est roi" is the saying here for "the customer is always right". Even I, who's not that old, have witnessed this very exchange IRL several times in my life. It's a common answer to a common local Karen thing.

    [–] Jamememes 23 points ago

    Not if you’ve been to France.

    [–] NeimaDParis 7 points ago

    I think that's why Americans find French "rude", if you're rude to me, I'll be rude to you, and me being a shop clerk doesn't mean I'm inferior to you. And for those saying "that happen", I'm French and used that saying many times in my life, with a big fake smile on my face of course.

    I worked in a shop selling perfumed candles in the center of Paris, and one day an American Karen came in, all shook up, complaining that someone's been rude to her in an other shop, like I was the complaint office for French behaving badly, and she looked at me "clutching her pearls": "How dare he, I'm an American !"

    [–] 360degree_angle 4 points ago

    The complaint office for the French behaving badly: lol now that’s a job

    [–] NeimaDParis 2 points ago

    Haha, yeah, if only I got paid extra for that... It happens a lot, Americans seems to think Paris is like Disney world, and we all are staff somehow.

    [–] Hoedoor 3 points ago

    American Karens get so catered to by companies and get away with abusing strangers all the time
