“Karens” are usually middle-aged women who put their noses in other people’s business and generally make life unpleasant for all. And they’ve been around a LONG time. In fact, this story from a Redditor took place in the 1980s!!!
It tells the tale of a woman who was hellbent on making life miserable for everyone around her. She probably would have continued to do so, if the homeowners hadn’t stumbled upon her big secret.
Let’s go back to the 1980s—a time of big shoulder pads, big hairstyles, and big attitude:
Karen had a lock on her position at the HOA, and she LOVED to fine people for every little thing.
One night, a resident who rented her home out went to visit her tenants, and she and Karen had a run in.
The homeowner’s music was too loud, but it was still fairly early.
The homeowner sought to appeal on the fine.
While on the property, she was also made aware of one of Karen’s big secrets, which would ultimately lead to her downfall.
However, she was still a member of the HOA, and the fines only got more extreme.
They came to find out just where all their money had gone, and the karma Karen experienced was small potatoes compared to what was to come.
Karen ended up in a situation she never dreamed possible.
Readers of the post were generally in agreement—Karen had brought her sad outcome on herself.
They also felt that it doesn’t pay to treat people horribly, just because you’re in a position of power.
Do you have a story about a Karen that got her just desserts?
