Did you know the term that suddenly boom at the start of Pandemic in other countries especially in the US. The term "Karen" which refers to the person that being mad at the store or being an entitled person that complains or getting mad for just a little reason. I really taught I won't be able to see like that here at Philippines because the famous here is the "Marites"but as I am in the Bayan Yesterday I suddenly witness a scene where there are "Karen" involved.

Yesterday as I go inside one of the department store in the mall because it's been raining so hard outside that's why I decided to wait until the rain weaken or stopped. I just went there because there are almost no customers and I want at least to look for something. As I go inside the establishment there are only person that is looking around and 2 person that in the cashier section. As I am walking inside there was also another person behind me that really looks like a foreigner I guess because to me she doesn't look like a Filipino.

Well back to me, I am just planning to look around and maybe get one item that I might need. I just go around the ailes and look around then I suddenly go to the home needs section where you can choose things that might be useful in the house. I am just there looking and the other person that came next to me is also in that section I saw her that is looking in the things that's why I just don't go near her. She have a basket where she puts the items that she get but I didn't get basket for me because I won't really bought a lot of things. I saw that she was getting something out of the shelf but she might didn't notice that while she was getting the thing out it bumped to the other shelf and there was a stick or something that fell out. I really don't know what is it because I wasn't really looking I just happened to see but I really do anything because I am looking at the tumblers because they have a One Piece Design that's why I am thinking of getting it 😂.

She might didn't notice the stick that fell out because she was looking in her basket and I thought that she will already leave the aile because she looks like she will walk away that's why I thought that I will picked up the thing that fell and put it on the shelf. But she suddenly come back that's why I stopped and just pretend to look in those shiny pots which is so embarrassing 😂. I just look at it and I heard a cracked from the floor and I saw that the woman stepped on it and it broke.

She looks around to maybe look if there's anyone saw that but I just pretend to not noticed or see it because I am thinking of her reaction or might do. I am thinking that she either put it in the basket to pay for it or just leave or hide it there so it will looks like she also don't know about it but to my surprise she have a different reaction and she done differently to my expectation.

She picked up the item and go near the cashier. Then she started to complain about the item she asked to the person in the cashier why they are selling broken items and why it is on the floor. She also said that it might be a health hazard or cause an accident. I was really surprised that she said because she is the one that stepped on it. She is speaking English that's why I really thought that she is a foreigner but as she was speaking I suddenly heard her talking in Tagalog.

She was complaining in the cashier about the item. Well it is quite different from the one that I am seeing in Facebook where the Karen is screaming and speaking so loud but she is just speaking loud enough to be heard that's why it wasn't causing a lot if attention or getting attention from the outside. She is speaking in front of the cashier about it and I pretend that I don't really hear or see it because I also think that the other one customer is doing the same because she wasn't looking in the cashier and just looking in the bags. I also noticed that she was definitely listening because I saw before that she was wearing an earphones but when I look at her now it was removed and just in her shoulders.

I also pretend to not noticed it and just went in the school supplies area because I need to buy something. She was still complaining about that item that is broken and the cashier is apologizing about and just said that she can just get a new one in the aile then the another person in the cashier gets it. I hear that the person stops talking and just said to the cashier that it just okay with her if they gave her a discount or a free item.

I almost turned my head after hearing the because that is really ridiculous in that moment I really wanted to speak up and tell that it's the woman's fault but I just can't because I am so embarrassed and I am thinking that it might get worse if I joined in that conversation. I saw that the woman got irritated and just walk away from the store she didn't even check out those things that is in her basket.

I saw that the cashier looks like stress that's why I just picked out the things I need for my activity which is bond paper, pencil, sharpener, ruler and eraser. Then I just pay and walk outside then I just go to the grocery which is the part of my yesterday's article.

Conclusion/ Realization

When I got home I feel really embarrassed because I didn't say anything while I am in that store and I feel bad for the lady in the cashier because she experience that because I an really thinking that the problem would be much bigger if other parties join in. I also feel very bad because I enjoyed that situation a little bit because I was amaze to see a real life "Karen"😂. That's why I feel really bad about it.

Author's Note:

Thank you for reading this article. In this experience I feel a little excited because I finally saw a real life Karen but I also feel really bad for the cashier that until now I really feel that it's my fault. Because I think that if I didn't see what happened maybe the lady wouldn't react that way.

Nung una mukha po kasi talagang di siya nag rerelklamo kasi mahina at mahinhin lang kaya siguro di rin masyado pinansin nung isang tao dun sa cashier. Kung tintingnan nyo lang sa CCTV para lang siyang natural na conversation. Pero medyo nag init yung babae sa badang huli. Nahiya nga po ako hahaha baka po kasi lumaki Yung gulo nun hahha kasi nung una talaga sobrang hinhin lang mukha lang siyang nag sasabi.

My dear friend, I missed reading your articles. The story you told surprised me a lot, how some people can be so deceitful. And easily play with others and deceive them. There are so many such people in our daily lives, they lie and play with others so brazenly that we never notice them.
