I lost my job for telling a Karen to eat a dick

On Wednesday the 7th, I had a young “male” Karen at my work scream in my face, call me stupid and tell me I can’t do anything right, and scream at me over a minor error.

essentially what triggered the “Karen” incident was simple. The place I waited at has an outdoor patio. I had a table of 9 outside. There was one member at this table who throughout the night was noticeably rude due to me forgetting about his beer because I had to ring in his whole tables order and get them 4 new beers. He ordered a red stripe, who drinks red stripe? Anyhow as I was at our bar splitting their ticket up, the male Karen entered the             restaurant through an “employees only” entrance. He said he’d wanted to go ahead and pay. I read off his ticket I’d had, because I’d thought he had another person at the   table on his ticket. I had two sandwiches  and two beers.  The male Karen     wasn’t listening and just threw his card at me. I then rang him up, and gave him and itemized receipt. That’s when he freaked out, he preceded to throw a temper
tantrum and scream at myself and my     manager, telling me “Fuck, you can’t do 
anything right” and asking, “are you 
stupid”. He then claimed to know my 
owner, Steve, and exclaimed that he was going to call him and tell him how shit his restaurant was. He screamed for so long that we gave him his meal for free if in 
return he’d just leave. The male Karen 
stormed out. I was having a rough day 
prior to that. He’d said his name a million times, because his dad was a doctor in      town and knew the owner, who was also a doctor. I’d bit my tongue inside as muchas possible during his tantrum. My error was messaging him on Facebook and 
telling him to eat a dick, which totally 
was not cool. However, the male Karen
screenshotted it and posted it, tagging 
my owner.
i got fired and am job hunting. I’ve never used gofundme but oh well. I don’t see 
myself reaching my goal, but it’d be cool 
if I did.
