Need I say more?
No, this isn’t a punchline for a “Bar joke” but rather the crux of a story that was shared to Reddit’s r/IDontWorkHereLady subreddit, where such a thing happens regularly… With hordes of confused Karens calling unsuspecting phone number-havers, giving them the what-for and demanding food orders.
The thread was shared to the small subreddit by Redditor u/yupitsanalt, who shared the story of their experience when this confused Karen accidentally called his mother’s store to place an order for a pizza. The poster explains that this happened regularly at the family business, as the number for the local Dominos was only one (easily confused) digit from theirs. It’s hard enough to deal with a Karen like this when you’re actually employed by the business, but it’s another thing entirely to try and explain to them that you don’t work there.
Readers voiced their enjoyment of the story and reminisced on the nostalgic qualities of the post.
“Man, I miss those days of answering machines with removable media like that,” said ITrCool. “You could keep old cassette tapes to archive and listen to years later to reminisce, even if just silly petty stuff. I dunno, I’m just nostalgic and guess.”
