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.

They Call Me Crazy

With renos happening at work next week when they paint and work upstairs the idea was for the opening cashier to come in an hour early.

This is exciting to me as I am opening cashier next Friday. I was talking with K and A in the office and both of them thought I was nuts. K only caught last minute of meeting so did not hear and A listened with half an ear.

Off I went on a mission to find out if in fact this is what our manager had said. When I asked him he said yes unless did I have a better idea. 😂😂😂😂 I said nope just need to check because K and A thought I was making things up.

Truthfully they know I would not make it up however they both do like to make me feel like I have lost my mind. Which is why I so enjoy working with them both.
