Tell-tale sign you're just not cut out to be a paladin...
On the topic of Karens, a few weeks ago we came across a real charmer while waiting for our flight in Seattle. She was at the counter by the gate telling the airline employee all the special requirements she needed for the flight, and near the end she said loudly and full of outrage, "and there are three people sitting over there NOT WEARING THEIR MASKS!!!".
To her credit, the airline employee didn't engage with that last comment or hassle the people who had their masks down or off (one of whom was simply eating). So there's still a bit of hope for humanity.
But it was fascinating, and more than a bit depressing, observing how some people behave while we've been here in the USA. So much more nastiness, fear, nosiness, and attention-seeking behavior... especially here in western Washington. This lady was far from the only example I've seen during this trip, but she was the most blatant. I can't help but wonder what was going on in her mind. Was she REALLY concerned about getting sick from people sitting more than 10 meters away? Or is it because, like many, she imagines herself as a modern-day paladin and this is her crusade?
Then again, maybe she was just cranky because Santa filled her stocking full of pig crap & rotting fish... 😁
