It seems like we’re always getting email promos for 10% off or 20% discounts to our favorite retail stores. Very rarely, you see a 40-50% sale and only when a store is going out of business do you catch anything higher than 75% off. That’s why when one cashier spotted a Karen waltzing into their store with a 99% off coupon, they smelled something fishy.
OP was the manager of a retail store that sold cell phones. While training the new-hire, a Karen wandered into the store with a fistful of coupons and a vendetta against the new girl. After demanding the store take her coupons, OP was drawn to the noisy scene because the cashier was weeping at her post, traumatized by the berating attack of the coupon woman. Fortunately for the cashier, OP could sense a scam a mile away and shut down the woman’s requests, suggesting that a coupon scam from the week prior could have been her doing as well. OP made eyes at the policeman at the door and instant karma was served.
