Boy that really bothers me.
I read an article this morning about a woman who insisted that some Walmart employees scan and bag her purchases in the self-checkout section of the store. Her reason for that was because there were no regular cash registers open. She said she would have gone to one of those had there been.
That was actually the most reasonable portion of the entire discussion, but that’s not what is bothering me.
I have a cousin named Karen. She’s a really nice person. And the woman in the Walmart story was referred to as a karen.
I think we need to find a different name for people who annoy us in a certain manner. Something other than Karen. And let’s not immediately fall back on “bitch” because that does a disservice to female dogs everywhere.
Or maybe, just maybe, we shouldn’t label these people at all. Yeah, okay, some things are certainly outrageous and ought to be reported as a lesson to others. So why not just report it without stigmatizing the person with a label? Especially one that is a perfectly fine female name. Seems to me that the actions of the person being written about should be enough to get the point across.
Name calling is a juvenile pursuit and not always complimentary to the person doing it.
That’s my thought for the day.
