Yeah...no. Not a Karen.

If you are done pumping gas you need to move on and let someone else get their gas. You can whore for attention in any parking spot.

probably should have watched the video first.
Plenty of other pumps.

Laugh.
The answer is laugh and finish what you're doing.

I wonder how many times she sat at a gas station pump until she got this reaction.

That's a good way to get your car keyed.....

Yeah, other pumps were open, and yelling at someone to hurry up is a sure way to make them slow down...but valley gurl tik tokker needs to GTFO if she's done at the pump.

Get out and start doing all your windows very carefully with their crappy squeegee.

You forgot to start with "pop quiz, hotshot"

I recently watched Speed. I hadn't seen it since the 90s. I was surprised how well it held up. There were a couple cheeseball scenes but otherwise it's a pretty solid movie.

Sorry to threadjack. Karens are stupid yada yada.

"Couple of cheeseball scenes" is high praise for a 90s Keanu Reeves movie

If she was looking up directions after pumping the gas, I see that as a "reasonable delay".  Seriously, I would have just gone to another pump.

There were several pumps open. "I want THAT one" is not a proper reason to act insane.

If someone starts throwing a Karen tantrum while I'm in my car and they want my spot then I'm afraid we are going to have to sit there until the end of time.

Stop referring to people as Karens because it's misogynist AF, and hasn't been even a little bit clever for a long time now.  You might as well use "b*tch", since that's exactly what you mean.

do some grocery shopping. Maybe get some nachos and a slurpee. Oh, no I can wait until the cheese is changed and the slurpee machine is ready. I've got ALL DAY now.

In Florida, it's standard practice to pump your gas then abandon your car at the pump to go buy beer, cigarettes, cash in some scratchers, and spend 10 minutes scratching off a fresh $20 worth of newly purchased scratchers.

Turn on the a/c and take a nap.

2021-04-10 11:22:51 AM  
I had someone demand I move away from a pump while I was still sorting receipts and resetting computers (work vehicle) after fuelling with 5 other pumps available.  Took a lot not to shut the truck off, go back inside the store and browse forever.

Some people confuse gas pumps with lucky slot machines, apparently

CSB: about 25+ years ago, I was 17 on my first multi state road trip. I stopped someplace to get gas.  I filled up, and was cleaning the windows with the squeegee. Some lady had just pulled in behind me and apparently didn't want to wait.  She starts honking the her horn. I yell "just a minute, let me clean my windshield real  quick." She just lays on her horn.
Fine! I yell. I throw the squeegee back in the bucket, give her the finger and drive off. I get about 45 minutes down the road and I realize I didn't pay for the gas.  I also had no idea what exit I got off at anyway.
So I just kept going.  Never did hear anything about it.

/side note for you youngsters, you used to be able to pump gas without paying for it first.
 
2021-04-10 11:23:38 AM  
Douse the front driver's side tire with gasoline from the nozzle then drive away. No violence. No words.
 
2021-04-10 11:23:40 AM  
Might as well take a shiat while you're in there.

Had a cabbie do that and hold up a full line at a full gas station once, at least he stopped farting in the cab.
 
2021-04-10 11:23:55 AM  
Lead, follow, or get out of the way.
 
2021-04-10 11:24:07 AM  
You know she sat there longer just to piss her off more.
 
2021-04-10 11:24:14 AM  
Leave the car parked, go inside and spend 20 minutes taking a shiat, then maybe grab a cup of coffee, chit chat with the register worker, etc. then maybe get back in my car after another hour or so.

I agree with you 95%.  It's maddening when you have to wait for somebody staring at their phone when you need them to move so you can get gas.  But if there's a bunch if open pumps then you don't have to wait unless you want to.  Just go to another pump.  There's no reason to flip out.

I bet she honks her horn at the car in front of her .75 seconds after the light turns green.

im putting a dollar on the karen is scared to try to reverse make the turn into the other row of pumps b/c she doesn't know how to drive her land whale.  and she'd rather be a complete psycho biatch for an hour at a random stranger than admit she shouldnt have a drivers license or own that vehicle.

Clean out the car...  Hey!  A lottery ticket.  Maybe it's a winner.  Just check the number on my phone.

I had something similar although a lot less err, Kareny happen a while ago. CSB:

I was coming out of Starbucks (sue me, this is the Seattle area, we're legally obligated to visit Starbucks at least once per fortnight) and was walking back to my car.  I stood beside my driver's side door for at least a half a minute dealing with coffee cup, phone (someone was texting me) keys, dropping keys, putting coffee cup on car, stuffing my bagel or whatever in my pocket so I could open the door, texting person back, etc., when I noticed someone had pulled up and was waiting to park in the parking spot next to mine, and was waiting for me to get in my car so they could park.

This was kind of odd, since my car was almost the only one in the parking lot and there were open spaces all over, even on the other side of my car which would have been closer to Starbucks, if that was what she cared about.

I looked back at her, and she did this irritated hand wave thing of "just get the fark out of the way, asshole, I wanna park there!" at me.  I pointedly looked at her, looked at the empty parking places, looked back at her, and took a long, slow sip of coffee while standing there.

After about another half a minute of us staring at each other, her waving her hands wildly while I drank coffee and didn't move, she eventually parked in a different spot.  She got out, glared at me (if looks from stupid people could kill, I'd be dead, but I'd have been dead a hundred times over before then) and snapped "You could have just moved!" and then went inside.

I suppose I could have moved, true.  But why?

this.  if theres other pumps open i'm not inconveniencing anyone by sitting there for 5 mins.
they're inconveniencing me by asking me to do an unnecessary move to free up an unneeded additional pump.
thats a wholly different situation than if all pumps were full and theres a line waiting.  cases like this video they can fark off and let me look up my directions.
