So I went to cheapest place in town $3.85 for gas, pull in 1st island next to store. Well, is a guy in a pick up with long trailer, so I can't access back pump. I sit patiently waiting on him. He musta paid $100 because after he filled up, went back in for his change. He did pump lot of gas, so I waited like 10 minutes, this place is always busy.

Well, as he pulls away, I pull forward so guy behind me can fuel. Well wouldn't you know it, some large hispanic woman is now in front of me inching forward, and honks at me. (my ex was hispanic ,n she had a big mouth!) Guess she expected me to give her my pump, sorry lady , the guy is behind me...As I exit the car, she backed up, turns to go around to another pump, I said sorry I been waiting for the pump already.

Well, as she turns, window down she calls me a F'in A-hole, so I replied yeah well "Fk you too beyotch !" She was pumping her fuel behind me on the other pump, and never said anything else LOL I was waiting for it! thank-you.gifNow normally I am very patient etc, but when idiot people who talk smack, I don't sit by and say nothing back, when they just flipped my trigger. This whole covid BS, has sure made quite a few "Karen's" in the world Was wondering how long until I came across one hahaha well, today was the day.....

There have always been "Karens". The covid BS did not create them. Social media just gave them a name. What's in a name? An A-hole by any other name would smell as foul.

I don't blame you for snapping back at this rude person. Especially since you tried to explain to her what was going on. Oh, well. Some people are just impossible to deal with.

Can't remember the name of the town...but a restaurant Northeast of Amarillo about 45 minutes, had a sign that said, "No Karen's allowed." I wanted to stop so bad, but time was tight.

Had a woman the other day come over and start getting nasty with me because my big truck was blocking one side of the gas pumps. I pointed to the large hoses leading from my truck into the ground, "Ma'am I'm delivering gas, and this is where the tanks are."
