You might have heard of Karen.
She wants to speak to the manager. She just got off the phone to the police because she has a suspicion the people passing by her house are planning to gather. She panic bought all the toilet paper. And the pasta sauce. She cuts her hair short, just beneath the ears, and uses gel to style the front. Her hair is meant to warn her prey that Karen is approaching. She is the nemesis of shop assistants. Baristas. Waitstaff. Telemarketers. The kids’ teachers. Her hobbies include writing letters of complaint and shouting at her children in public. She’s white, probably racist, likely anti-vax and middle-aged.
