Crazy Liberal ‘Karen’

by lewwaters

I had a mask on

Getting in line, ‘Crazy Liberal ‘Karen’ was ahead of me in the checkout with a buggy full of merchandise. I had my own buggy with less stuff, but patiently waited for my turn to checkout.

There was some guy walking through another checkout that had taken his mask off and speaking very loudly against the mask requirement our governor has mandated on us. For me, it is his right to speak out and if he draws attention, so be it.

I just want to check out and go home before the day gets much hotter.

Crazy Liberal ‘Karen’ turns around to me and comments to the effect, “they’re everywhere now,” regarding the other loud shopper. I replied I mostly agree with his point, but will play the game up until the time they tell me to get into the boxcar

Crazy Liberal Karen did not like that at all and her eyes showed it. She mumbled something at me from behind her mask and I leaned forward slightly and asked her to repeat it. I asked twice and she replied “nothing!” I said, “that’s what I figured.”

As she continued placing her many items on the conveyor, she kept looking back at me, glaring each time. I ignored her.

This was a woman, maybe 50ish who apparently believes she is entitled.

I say that as when her merchandise was well down the conveyor, I began placing mine on the rear most portion, maintaining a decent interval between hers and mine since the store does not offer those bars to place between items now.

This woman went absolutely NUTs over that, began yelling at me, grabbing my items to throw back in my buggy because some of hers were still being scanned and she had not fully cleared the conveyor.

I rather impolitely informed her to get her hands off of my items and the ‘F-bombs” flowed from her mouth.

I began adding my own as loudly as I could as she continued berating me for “getting into her space,” “giving her a virus” even though she was who continued walking back towards me.

It didn’t take long before the manger came over and got between us as she continued yelling for her to make me move back.

Both me and the manager reminded her that she was who kept stepping back towards me.

I will admit that I was not polite at all, but felt my blood pressure rising and began calming down, since another heart attack is not something I want.

Crazy Liberal Karen continued her barrage of foul language, calling me a crazy old white man, going to infect her with the virus (although it was her touching my items, not me touching hers) and I believe I recall her mentioning something about white privilege, which is funny since she had skin as white as mine.

Those of you that know me personally know that whenever I venture outdoors, I wear my Vietnam Veteran cap and Crazy Liberal Karen could have cared less, only that according to her, I was invading her space by placing my items on the back of the checkout conveyor before every last single one of her items was bagged and in her cart.

After she finally left, the manager and at least two other cashiers apologized to me for what happened. But it was not their fault as I understand this is the atmosphere created by Governor Jay Inslee, empowering Crazy Liberal Karen’s and other Mask Nazi’s.

I also appreciate the half dozen or so other shoppers that made a point to pat me on the shoulder and also apologize for the actions of Crazy Liberal Karen and to thank me for my service.

To the rest of you Crazy Liberal Karen’s that feel Inslee has granted you the right to get in our faces and force us to bend to your whims, think again.

We ain’t backing down!

  1. I agree that the masks are essentially useless, but I wear them in public anyway so as not to offend the Crazy Karens of the world. I don’t understand the point of the maskless guy you mentioned – the one who set CK off in the first place. What good does deliberately offending people do? The atmosphere generated by Inslee and others has made some people very fearful. My own daughter is afraid to go out shopping, dining, etc. due to the undue hysteria generated by people like Inslee. Taking your mask off in public while loudly stating your opinion doesn’t do anyone any good as far as I can determine.

  2. One of my truck drivers went into a small store on the Oregon/Washington border last week to grab a sandwich, there was no one else was in the little store. He had his headset on speaking with his dispatcher and the manager starting yelling at him, he could not hear the manager. When he turned around the manager was screaming and swearing at him, “put on a mask”. The driver stepped forward to the cashier, purchased the sandwich, the cashier apologized for the managers profane language and the driver walked out. Upon approaching his truck the local police pulled up and stated: “We received a call that someone was not wearing a mask in the store”.The driver related what happened in the store to the officers letting the officers know the mask requirement was not posted, at which time the driver was informed by the officers “We will just educate you this time, however, beginning Friday 7/17/2020 you will be issued a citation with a $250.00 fine”. As we are all aware, it is one thing to make a “polite request” to “wear a mask” or keep “social distancing” ( two things I hate with a passion ), or if it is “not posted as a requirement at an establishment” to make our own decision. It is quite another for this manager to lose all civility over this matter and for the government to implement fines, citations, jail, etc.. over the possible benefits of the mask.
