“Why would I wear a mask if I’m not sick?” she asks. “I work in healthcare, and I don’t need to wear a mask. I know I’m not causing [COVID-19]. So you can get me a medium iced coffee.”

“I’m not leaving the line, so get me an iced coffee,” she demands. “You’re just making it harder for the people behind me.”

The employee continues refusing to serve her.

“You can give an iced coffee,” she says. Then, she makes him the owner of her problem, saying he shouldn’t have let her stand in line for 10 minutes. She says she got coffee in another instance where she wasn’t wearing a mask, but the employee isn’t budging.

“You should’ve said it when I came in here, dick,” she says on her way out, without her medium iced coffee.

“Was it 10 minutes or 15 minutes she was waiting?” asked one commenter on the Karen’s changing story. “People, wear the freakin mask; frontline workers don’t want to get sick because you can’t spend 10 minutes in a mask. Grow the freak up.”
