There are a handful of unspoken rules of etiquette that every adult grocery store shopper should follow, like putting the cart away in its designated spot, or waiting in line until it’s your turn to check out. Karens, however, tend to believe that simple codes of polite behavior don’t apply to them. One karen has gone viral for throwing a tantrum after a Publix cashier didn’t hold her place in line when she disappeared to use the bathroom. People in the comments overwhelmingly sided with the cashier. ‘Congratulations, y’all,’ one TikToker said in response to the viral video, ‘this is what the «customer is always right» mentality has spawned. People like this.’
The video is a pretty good example of what not to do in a busy grocery store. Keep scrolling to watch the TikTok and see how people reacted.
