    I Just Became a "KAREN"!!!!

    Saw three young boys (6 to 10) walking around the vacant (but owned) house across from me.

    I fly out on my front porch and "strongly" (no profanity) lecture them on private property. At this point one of the boys says they are looking for their cat. "OK, but you still have to get permission to search on private property". One boy then asks if they can look around my front porch. "There is no cat here." The cat then walks out of my hedge. "I'm glad you found your cat."

    The bigger story. Two days earlier I saw a guy walk from behind the same house. I noticed that a window in back was open and bricks had been used to build stairs. Police called. They cleared the house, tried to secure the window until a better repair.

    Five minutes later, today, looking out an upstairs window the same guy walks by my house! Do you think he was back at the house, or just out for a stroll??? Do I go full "KAREN" on him if I see him again? Is a male "Karen" a "Darren" or a "Matthew", or an "Akirasho"?

    I've wondered the same thing. I think it's a Jason.

    You actually had a Costco Ken episode. Take some some Ritalin, smoke a dobbie, or both and you'll be fine.

    ... or "Neighborhood KAREN". The cat walked out of my hedge like it had been cued. I felt smaller than the cat!!

    Sad fact, scammers will scam. People will "lose something" or "door to door sales" just to see who notices, who is home during the day (most of us now) how well the door is secured, who answers etc. If there was something very suspicious in the neighborhood recently, don't beat yourself up too much. A simple "Sorry kids, but there has been some crime in the area lately and we need to be careful" should cover it.

    Big points to the cat for trolling you with such perfect timing. Of course, it was a cat. A dog would have not had such disdain

    You are incorrect. A Chad is a fragment created from punched cards that can ultimately determine who may rule the most powerful country on earth for a period of time.

    The incident in Missouri with the two holding guns at protesters walking by their house are known as "Karen" and "Ken".
    Voting isn't marriage - it's public transport. You are not waiting for "The One" who is absolutely perfect. You are getting on the bus, and if there isn't one going exactly to your destination you don't stay at home and sulk - you take the one going closest to where you want to be!

    I prefer the "Kevin" choice.
