Karen Rides Again

My boss is pretty positive that Karen has some serious jealousy issues regarding me and we cannot figure it out.
I cannot figure it out.
Despite the fact that she is not my favorite person at all I have always been nice and friendly to her.
Do I have my issues regarding her and how she is?
Yes.
Do I bitch about her to everyone?
No.
Well maybe a little.
Not everyone but my supervisor.
She is right up in my business.
Asking me what I am doing.
How many orders do I have.
Staring at me when I am on floor and she is in a till.
Making comments about me which I can see her do but pay no attention to.
I am not stupid.
Forever trying to catch me on something.
Last Thursday she made a comment to the supervisor on and said supervisor calls me immediately after and both stand staring at me as she asks if I will cover her lunch.
Me: Absolutely. I have no issues with that.
Sup: Okay great.
Me: I will still be on the floor unless it gets really busy. I only answer pages for K when she is on break.
Sup: Oh.
Yeah oh this.
Friday K asked me to cover her lunch.
To close down my till and work in CS.
Next thing I know all hell is breaking loose.
Karen went storming into see K on her break.
Karen: I have nothing to do and Jay is in CS. I don’t think that I should have to open up at checkout 3 while she is in CS.
K: It is not busy enough for 3 to be going. And I asked Jay to shut down and do my break.
Karen: Oh why? Was she whining to you about her shoulder hurting?
K: No again Karen I asked her to shut down and cover my break.
Karen: Well what am I suppose to do?
K: I am sure you can find something.
I have only included the pertinent part to this conversation.
As K told me I took a deep breath and let it out.
I was done with this.
Now I cannot go to Karen and outright confront.
But I can make things a little uncomfortable for her.
The following is what I have asked K to say to Karen the next time that she comes to complain about me and she has agreed to do so.
Karen you seem to be having a lot of issues with Jay of late. I think that the three of us should sit down and work this out. It cannot continue going on this way.
Do I think that she will agree to sit down?
No.
But maybe she will start to think twice before making petty complaints about me.
I have warned K that if I do happen to overhear Karen making any comments to me to other staff there will be words.
Big words that insult and confuse.
She is a Karen after all.
