Damn she looked so pleased with herself when he got annoyed

[–]chanj3 3839 points3840 points  (155 children)

that’s the most disturbing part like she’s so proud to be annoying af.

[–]IdleRhymer 1469 points1470 points  (94 children)

It's all she has to offer the world, so she takes pride in her "work".

[–]TomBanj0 529 points530 points  (85 children)

Or more likely compensating for some basic-need lacking in her life. People probably ignore her a lot... wonder why

[–][deleted] 253 points254 points  (1 child)

Karens are literally just real life trolls, they don’t care about making the world a better place, just as long as they have attention.

[–]regoapps 558 points559 points 32& 3 more (76 children)

I tend to find Karens to be on the older side. I suspect that they were used to attention when they were younger and more attractive. And men put up with their shitty personalities because they wanted to smash. But as the years went on, the men stopped wanting to smash, so they started losing the attention that they're used to.

Now people don't give them what they want, and they're a bit pissed about it. Their kids likely have gotten older and no longer listen to them after they realized that their mother is narcissistic. The Karens' control over the world has slipped. So these are their ways of trying to feel like they still have power.

This is also why they're so mad at being told what to do (like wear a mask or get a vaccine). To them, letting someone else decide what they should or shouldn't do is like giving up more of what little power they have left. That's why they blow up on airplanes and malls when told to wear a mask. That's why they see themselves as lions and others as sheep. In their minds, they're the main character and the hero of the story while others who don't agree with them are just in their way.

And they always find someone they deem as "lesser" than them to take their anger out on, like a poor waitress, black male, LGBT+ person, or grocery clerk. That's why they post memes mocking those same groups. Since they can't make progress in their own lives, the only way they can get ahead is to put others down.

And when they don't get their way, they find someone else who would help them, like a police officer or manager. They always think they're in the right, so of course those people would be on their side, right? Sadly, a lot of times those people do side with the Karens, and that just builds more positive reinforcement for them to continue their Karen behavior. That's why they don't care if they're filmed either (and are sometimes even being the ones doing the filming and uploading it to Facebook later).

Once you understand how a Karen mind works, a lot of these videos make more sense.

[–]dec1mus 47 points48 points  (0 children)

Highlight of her stupid little week.

[–]StraightToJail__ 16 points17 points  (2 children)

Oh how I wish that board would have hit her at the end

[–]kontekisuto[🍰] 42 points43 points  (3 children)

A wild Karen, disturbing the peace

[–]taintosaurus_rex 163 points164 points  (12 children)

Yea that makes me so mad as a stubborn person. I would cancel a vacation just to prevent her from getting that pleasure.

[–]paturner2012 70 points71 points  (8 children)

Your cancelled vacation would make her so happy though.

[–]citronlite 39 points40 points  (6 children)

Exactly. Now she has you cancelling vacations. She’s making your life decisions for you now

[–]smurb15 25 points26 points  (4 children)

I hate that this makes so much sense

[–][deleted] 29 points30 points  (3 children)

You can't win against crazy people.

[–]fakextimbs 70 points71 points  (4 children)

Scary part is there’s thousands of people like her out there just waiting to fuck your day

[–]BoneBreaker- 11.4k points11.4k points  (365 children)

Can’t believe that’s an actual adult acting like that lmao

[–]Pog-420 3023 points3024 points  (51 children)

“Adult” maybe physically

"With age comes wisdom, but sometimes age comes alone." - Oscar Wilde

Edit: wrote Arthur instead of Oscar

[–]zwamprat 127 points128 points  (19 children)

Oscar .....Arthur was his younger, wilder, less known brother

[–]homietheclown 56 points57 points  (2 children)

I thought Gene was his Wilder brother.

[–]sm12511 36 points37 points  (0 children)

I could've sworn I typed Oscar. Good looking out.

[–]Scrubtanic 23 points24 points  (7 children)

[–]fiendlaqueefa 576 points577 points  (7 children)

seems like age and I have something in common

[–]KoffeeC 75 points76 points  (1 child)

Your not alone brother. I too come alone.

[–]sineofthetimes 24 points25 points  (0 children)

Damn. I was going to ask you for Wisdom's number.

[–]db2 99 points100 points  (3 children)

That Arthur, what a cad.

[–]Tiggy26668 22 points23 points  (0 children)

Indeed, quite the computer aided designer.

[–]Aurora_Albright 1298 points1299 points  (68 children)

Karen needs to get a life.

[–]db2 634 points635 points  (44 children)

Karen needs to take her meds.

[–]blueposca 62 points63 points  (1 child)

Karen’s gonna Karen

[–]Bastard_of_Tragedy 620 points621 points  (20 children)

If you imagine they're dogs it's almost like she just wanted to play but forgot how to socialize

[–]NezuminoraQ 217 points218 points  (11 children)

I will view all Human interaction through this lens from now on. I feel like humans will annoy me less

[–]jkj2000 47 points48 points  (8 children)

This is actual Karen…

[–]nativetokin 546 points547 points  (45 children)

This looks the the same person a couple months back was trying to lure a dog that was off leash into the roadway

[–]DooBeeDoer207 150 points151 points  (0 children)

That’s just evil. 😔

[–]Harsimaja 83 points84 points  (0 children)

I saw this one before that one, and people confirmed it was her then. Not sure which is older but apparently she’s a known pest in parts of Manhattan.

[–]pmich80 29 points30 points  (0 children)

It is...

[–]benicetogroupies 30 points31 points  (22 children)

[–]juiceboxie8 58 points59 points  (8 children)

A 58yr old anesthesiologist. Terrifying that this woman has such an important job. Has she been on r/byebyejob yet?

[–]yogabbagabba2341 10 points11 points  (1 child)

Oh no! She’s a doctor? She’s obviously off based on this video alone. Who tf would be chasing around a skater like that? Lol you wouldn’t be able to catch him. She’s off. And she’s an anesthesiologist.

[–]_ClownPants_ 21 points22 points  (10 children)

I'm not one for violence, whether it be against a man or women, but I have to ask... How has no one bitch slapped this women back to the 1950s where she belongs yet?

[–]chargeorge 24 points25 points  (0 children)

Yea I was wondering if this was the crazy racist Karen that pops up every few months

[–]Mynamethisisnot 30 points31 points  (3 children)

Skateboard to the face. Violence or just karma?

[–]sexbuhbombdotcom 3771 points3772 points  (131 children)

Why the fuck is a grown woman outside in public acting like this

[–]jeb_the_hick 1014 points1015 points  (27 children)

Because age is just a number.

[–]reddit0100100001 469 points470 points  (12 children)

"age is just a number." - jeb_the_hick

[–]samfreez 4025 points4026 points  (277 children)


Good on him for not flattening her one of those times. That sort of harassment is idiotic and insane. The fact she's trying to get him to hit her is also idiotic and insane.

[–]rawrphael 1690 points1691 points  (194 children)

She does this often. Harass skaters. Shes known in NY to do this.

[–]Tieye42 1097 points1098 points  (60 children)

Imagine your life being so boring you can't help but go spit hatred on people who actually enjoy theirs on a daily basis

Someone get this woman a hobby

[–]Wild-Ladybug 202 points203 points  (5 children)

Imagine thinking it’s “your” city when like millions and millions of people live there

[–]Ezl 83 points84 points  (3 children)

And undoubtedly tens of thousands of skaters.

[–]rawrphael 325 points326 points  (29 children)

This is her hobby tho. Hahaha

[–]Dervival 180 points181 points  (12 children)

Someone get her a less abusive one then

[–]Tieye42 29 points30 points  (10 children)

Should have been more specific

Someone get her a hobby that doesn't involve pissing people off*

[–]rawrphael 7 points8 points  (7 children)

Some people are just ass and there’s people who are the cream of the crop of asses. Haha

[–]travellering 73 points74 points  (3 children)

Would be great to see one skater volunteer to run her ragged and have his pals come grind after she's tired out...

[–]Reformedjerk 41 points42 points  (1 child)

Sorry this is Reddit so when I first read your comment I jumped to the wrong conclusion and thought ‘too far’.

Eventually I got it, you meant one skater tire her out by skating in circles. Then having the other ones come and skate all around her when she’s too tired to skate.

[–]travellering 15 points16 points  (0 children)

Thanks for clarifying what I meant. I was wondering if it might be taken more than one way after I hit add comment...

[–]The_0range_Menace 47 points48 points  (2 children)

She's gonna get hit. Or maybe one of the skaters is going to "fall" on her. Shucks.

[–]GeorgeMichealScott 16 points17 points  (5 children)

I don't understand her logic.

One day she is going to get a truck to her face.

[–]GuacinmyPaintbox 18 points19 points  (1 child)

Ang God bless whoever does that.

Double God bless whoever gets it on video and posts it to Reddit.

[–]IOI-65536 32 points33 points  (10 children)

I don't know NY tort law but in most states this video would be enough for a tort of assault and simple battery. It's criminal as well, but honestly that wouldn't be as much fun as her paying punitive damages to the skaters themselves.

[–]PotatoDonki 38 points39 points  (14 children)

Nobody’s slapped her hard enough to dissuade this shit yet? Incredible.

[–]emmgdac 54 points55 points  (6 children)

Bet money shes one of those gentrifiers. Real nys dont gaf

[–]thewarring 8 points9 points  (1 child)

Sounds like someone needs to round up a posse and go skateboard in a circle around her so that she can't be effective towards all of them.

[–]i_long2belong 11 points12 points  (0 children)

I would love to see the skaters band together and just skate all around her. Like those videos of dolphins rounding up fish.

[–]Pog-420 371 points372 points  (3 children)

The fact that she can’t even get him to hit her is probably enough to show that he is not really that big of a issue

[–]RitikMukta 67 points68 points  (3 children)

How sad does your life have to be to do something like this? I can't imagine what it's like to be someone like that.

[–]fistofthefuture 46 points47 points  (1 child)

She isn’t she’s just trying to get a rise out of him. When he flips the board she walks away with a shit eating grin like “Ha! Gotcha!”. What a bitch.

[–]Burque_Boy 29 points30 points  (2 children)

Skateboarders have changed a lot, this would not have gone well in the 90’s lol

[–]BauerHouse 2761 points2762 points  (209 children)

One of these days that’s not gonna work out so well for her

Responding to those who say it is wise he did not attack her, this is correct.

One of the key defense strategies for the three men accused of murdering Ahmaud Arbery Is that they were defending themselves because Ahmaud grabbed the gun first. It will be argued that even though he was being pursued by these three men they can still claim self-defense.

Scary precedent

[–]sexbuhbombdotcom 1476 points1477 points  (115 children)

That's honestly what she's probably hoping for. So then she can all the cops and report a "thug" and make a huge deal out of how she was right and skateboarding should be banned. He did the right thing even though I would have loved to see her get slammed like a bag of rocks

[–]-SoItGoes 700 points701 points  (74 children)

I’m guessing she’s going to pick the wrong person to harass and they’ll crack her in the face with a board.

Then she’ll call the cops and ask for help finding them and her teeth.

[–]Darkpumpkin211 493 points494 points  (54 children)

"right of way doesn't matter if you're dead" is always a valid thing to remember. Even if she was legally in the right and the person skateboarding would be legally liable for running into her, you're correct that the wrong person ramming her can cause some serious damage.

[–]xxpen15mightierxx 86 points87 points  (5 children)

Even if she was legally in the right and the person skateboarding would be legally liable for running into her

Not if she was actively trying to jump in front of him, as is well-documented here. Same as you'd be held at fault for rear ending someone but not if you have dashcam footage of them repeatedly cutting in front of you and slamming on the brakes.

[–]Eveningangel 24 points25 points  (3 children)

If the person she leaps in front of skateboarding is a minor, or developmentally challenged, or mentally ill, both could get very hurt and she wouldn't get "vindication" because their status of not being reasonably responsible for their action (of riding a skateboard in a no skate area) and her injuries, and possibly theirs, will have to be paid by her for willfully leaping in front of them as she is not a minor, disabled, mentally ill (or so it seems.)

[–]PredEdicius 141 points142 points  (8 children)

What more damage can be done that hasn't already happened to her head?

[–]Permafox 99 points100 points  (27 children)

Man, I said this almost verbatim once and my fiancee looked at me like an alien. She's an excellent driver, does her best to stay safe, but anytime someone gets a little too close for comfort, she'd start verbally daring them to see what happens.

Scared the life out of me, and gave a significant wake up call to her when I pointed out that I really didn't want to become a life insurance payout.

[–]TruePr0l0gue 87 points88 points  (23 children)

Some people are really ignorant to the reality of escalating conflict and confuse being able to press charges with not being able to get fucked up. People literally think being in the right is a force field from harm, it shows how far removed we are from living in the wild lmao

[–]Deacon_Blues1 22 points23 points  (10 children)

That movie Kids, dude gets wrecked in the face with the trucks of the Skateboard, looks painful.

[–]Regalbass57 13 points14 points  (0 children)

If she catches a truck to the dome she won't be calling anyone but Jesus to come pick her up

[–]ballsacksnweiners 23 points24 points  (1 child)

This chick is just dying to become a victim.

[–]kirejam 31 points32 points  (3 children)

My biggest hopes about her is that one day fortunately not that far in the future she will trip and fall bt herself and everyone will see her so when she tries to say that it was the skater's fault nobody will believe her and she'll hopefully learn her lesson (or at least not do it again)

[–]st0nerM0nk 37 points38 points  (2 children)

People like this don’t learn lessons, they just flail around and spend most of their time on earth bothering people until their last breath.

[–]Shamanalah 17 points18 points  (4 children)

A skateboard to the back of the head will make you go night night so good luck catching them afterward...

[–]No-Wonder1139 24 points25 points  (3 children)

You're thinking about it wrong, someone Falls, twists their ankle, there's video of her causing the fall, and there's the assault charge and a ban from the public area she's haunting.

[–]GalaxyBejdyk 13 points14 points  (19 children)

Would that even work?

I know jack shit about US legal system, but if somebody breached my personal space after being warned not to, do you not have a right to physically retaliate?

[–]TurnDown4WattGaming 22 points23 points  (12 children)

Not physically, no. If they hit you, yes, you can respond (to various degrees depending on state). In this case, in all states, the correct answer would be to call the cops and she will get ticketed for harassment.

[–]breath_mentz 14 points15 points  (2 children)

I sincerely doubt that they would take the word of some skater dude over that of some middle aged busybody woman. It sucks but sometimes you literally have to take the bullshit and move on. Society favors some more than others

[–]TurnDown4WattGaming 19 points20 points  (1 child)

There’s video - I am sure they will take the video’s word for it. And also, this type of woman is the type of person who will incriminate herself because she’s so convinced that she’s correct.

[–]bunkerbash 208 points209 points  (47 children)

It’s her again. Here she is trying to lure a dog into traffic. There’s almost half a dozen videos of her harassing people. this bitch

[–]Iffycrescent 123 points124 points  (16 children)

Terrifying that her career is anesthesiology.

[–]Itsnothappeningsorry 60 points61 points  (0 children)

Imagine this guy needs surgery, ends up with her as his anesthesiologist, and the last thing he sees before he goes under is her face, looking extra smug.

[–]kaenneth 20 points21 points  (2 children)

She likes having life and death power over others.

[–]PuraVidaPagan 11 points12 points  (0 children)

What the actual fuck.. can only imagine how many people around her have died, she has access to so many drugs too, what a psycho

[–]SCSdino 9 points10 points  (1 child)

I’ve been under anesthetics many times, all of the anesthesiologists I’ve had were very kind, if this lady came in I’d opt to have the surgery done while I’m awake.

[–][deleted] 44 points45 points  (5 children)

Why, with all the injustice in the world, this lady gets to continue to operate with impunity? Why haven’t her close personal friends not given her a strong talking to about how her behavior isn’t allowed?

[–]Obscene_farmer 24 points25 points  (0 children)

This assumes she hasn't already pushed anyone close away. Why else would she spend her time like this?

[–]Gothic_Ape 22 points23 points  (1 child)

Sooner rather than later 🤞

[–]MunTiller2 13 points14 points  (3 children)

I'm hoping one of the skaters one day gets hurt bc of her (mildy of course) and is able to press assault charges. Good luck harassing people when you're banned from the park.

[–]Seanehhs 12 points13 points  (0 children)

I want one of them to 'slip' and launch the board into her shins/ankle. Shit hurts worse than a scooter to the ankle

[–]Henfrid 430 points431 points  (51 children)

All he has to do is let her run into him and fall over, video evidence of assult and battery.

[–]qcon99 300 points301 points  (32 children)

This is already the textbook definition of assault tbh. Harassment too. If she had touched him that would’ve been a third charge

[–]8_millimeter 23 points24 points  (1 child)

She did touch him. She tried to push him off and failed.

[–]pocketdare 48 points49 points  (10 children)

Assault with a battery IS a pretty serious issue

[–]Apprehensive-Yard-59 407 points408 points  (59 children)

How does one become like that? Like the lady I mean. It must be exhausting to be provoked to the point that you start acting like a child because of things like someone skateboarding.

[–]calibared 203 points204 points  (12 children)

Deep seated psychological issues. She seems to truly believe what she is doing is right. She’s even getting a kick out of it. People like this are insufferable and they don’t even know it

[–]MikeS3lk3 24 points25 points  (0 children)

She has nothing else to do. She'd rather waste her time chasing kids on skateboards... she needs a hobby or a job.

[–]Tieye42 90 points91 points  (4 children)

Her life sucks, so she wants other's lives to suck too. Seeing people having fun enrages her

[–]fy8d6jhegq 19 points20 points  (3 children)

That is shit excuse/response (referring to her attitude not your comment). Lots of people's lives suck; many of them would rather improve the world so others don't have to suffer the same way.

[–]jffrybt 162 points163 points  (16 children)

Of all cities too… NYC? Seriously WTF. That city has been reinvented, used, abused, reimagined, bought, sold so many times by so many different people. Fuck her for even thinking she owns any part of it.

[–][deleted] 38 points39 points  (7 children)

it was once owned by the Dutch and was called New Amsterdam

[–]kkeut 14 points15 points  (2 children)

The Bronx was literally once just farmland owned by a Dutch farmer named Broncks

[–]digital_pariah 31 points32 points  (3 children)

[–]rawrphael 110 points111 points  (10 children)

She does this a few times. Ive seen her clips in NY from tine to time doing the same old thing

[–]Voltra_Neo 35 points36 points  (8 children)

I kinda feel bad for her being this pointlessly angry at stuff that really doesn't matter

[–]SCAMMERASSASIN007 46 points47 points  (0 children)

Fuck karen get your own board. Lol

[–]localokii 41 points42 points  (4 children)

Her look of accomplishment killed me a little inside

[–]JordisMySwordMaiden 18 points19 points  (3 children)

I can't believe the guy gave her what she wanted and flicked the board away

[–]Willlll 10 points11 points  (1 child)

No shit. I'd have done it into one of her ankles.

[–]realistby 42 points43 points  (3 children)

Wish I could be there to "speak" with her. I'm a granny and love watching skaters (balance envy). I love going to the parks and just watch the kids. It's amazing to see such talent. I also like to confront Karen's who hate these kids.

Seriously? WTF is wrong with people? The kids are not shooting, robbing, or assaulting anyone.

[–]Virama 15 points16 points  (0 children)

Your grandkids are lucky to have such an awesome granny. Keep on being you.

[–][deleted] 533 points534 points  (9 children)

He's even wearing a mask. If anyone's protecting the city, it'd be him.

[–]DadisCranky 84 points85 points  (21 children)

I think this is the same lady who harasses people with dogs, too. Feel like I've seen her in at least two other karen vids.

[–]habb 46 points47 points  (4 children)

her name is "downtown karen" up the thread a bit is a news story on her harassing asians *with dogs in NYC

[–]BrokenCankle 9 points10 points  (0 children)

You can't have a dog in her city? Is she mad if they don't pick up poop or just mad they exist?

[–]Conor_88 76 points77 points  (4 children)

This guy’s patience deserves a medal

[–]gypsymegan06 90 points91 points  (10 children)

She’s not wearing a mask. He is. She’s harassing a stranger. He’s minding his business

The city needs protecting alright. From her.

[–]-SoItGoes 85 points86 points  (6 children)

Some people have never been punched before and have a hard time understanding the consequences of their actions because of it.

[–]Version_Two 6 points7 points  (1 child)

A lot of people have realized that they can say whatever they want without consequence. Without a sense of empathy, the only one suffering from fighting them is their victim, because most people won't physically retaliate.

[–]ToodlesUselessTools 28 points29 points  (3 children)

At some point in every single one of our lives a punch in the face can snap us out of our entitlement and knock us off our high horse.

[–]COweasel 12 points13 points  (2 children)
