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.

Liar Liar!

Yesterday when I came home for lunch they had blocked the road off and I had to detour through the parking lot of the businesses next to me. 🚧🚧🚧
Today when I came home for lunch I could not even get to the other parking lot to get to my parking lot. 🚧🚧👷👷👷
GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR 😠😠
I had to stop and have a conversation with the construction dude.
Y’all remember the construction dude?
The one who told me I could not make a turn to go to my apartment and then when I waited at the light he let someone else through?
Yeah that dude.
Me: Am I able to get down there?
Dude: Where are you going? To the second drive? No you can’t get down that way.
Me: Ok. Um how long will this be going on?
Dude: Oh it will be done later this afternoon.
Me: Ok thank you otherwise I will find a different way home.
Dude: No it will be done.
Fast forward to me driving home.
I am irritated as it is and just want to get home and settle into me time.
At least I beat the traffic that would have made my trek a fifteen minute trip instead of the three and a half.
I get to my intersection and what do I see?
No way for me to get home.
Piles of sand.
And the Dude standing in the intersection.
As he walked towards my vehicle I looked at him and smiled. 😈😈😈
Me: Liar liar pants on fire!
Away I drove feeling much better whilst leaving him standing in the intersection staring after my car.
Oh yeah and as I yelled liar liar I was also shaking my finger at him.  ☝☝☝☝
