Karens Gone Wild: Fast Food Horror Stories

By now, everyone who hasn't been living under a rock for a decade knows exactly what a "Karen" is. The term is used to refer to people who have a tendency to act haughty, entitled, and bratty—especially when it comes to interacting with people in customer service. These nightmare Karens make life more difficult for all sorts of unsuspecting employees with their unreasonable and rude demands. If a Karen appears in your workplace, your best bet is probably to run and hide! 

You might think that these Karens are all upper-class and complaining about poor service in 1st class or a sub-par yacht, but that couldn't be further from the truth! Sometimes the biggest Karens you'll meet are throwing a fit over inexpensive items and bickering about pennies on the dollar. So, it's probably no surprise that fast food restaurants are one place where Karens are constantly making an appearance. 

Today, we're taking a look at some of the worst Karen stories from employees and visitors to fast-food restaurants. From demanding free food to getting physical with cashiers, these people have embarrassed not only themselves with their bad behavior but also the entire human race!
