A 7-Eleven employee seemed to reached his limit with a difficult customer in a video uploaded to TikTok on July 28. His colorful reaction to one “Karen” has gone viral with over 70,000 views on the platform.
In the original video, posted by @thatsyesi, the cashier tells off a “Karen,” who allegedly threw a tantrum over her soda being $3 instead of $2.
“My brother sent me this video of a Karen while he was working,” the creator added in the caption. “The lady got mad over her soda being $3 instead of $2.”
The man in the video had enough of her alleged antics and began telling her off, at one point calling her a “scallywag.”
“Get the fuck out of here with your raggedy ass,” the employee tells the woman. “Bitch, I’m trying to help your stupid ass and you want to come up here with that bullshit.”
The customer and employee berate each other until she finally leaves the Florida store. She did receive her money back, according to the caption.
