The Karen

“I keep telling you Ma’am, that’s a feature of the phone. That’s the way it’s supposed to work! I wish you could understand my perspective here.” Max said to the Karen he was helping. He hated working customer service at this tech store for this very reason. Some people just couldn’t understand the limitations the company placed on low level workers like him.

“Well, I just wished you knew how annoying it was to be a customer in this store.” The Karen complained.

And then a strange electrical shock began to emanate from the phone. The Karen continued to complain, “See, what’s it doing now?”

“I’ve never seen this --” Max couldn’t complete his sentence before the phone zapped both of them. And it was like the phone was searching for some way to grant the wishes it heard. Max now found himself in the body of the Karen, and the Karen now found herself in Max’s body. They both knew something was very wrong, but for some reason they could only keep talking abou the phone.

“You know what?” Max said now inside the Karen’s body and speaking with her voice, “I’m sorry. I was overreating. The phone is actually fine. I love it.”

“Is there anything else I can help you with today?” The Karen asked now in Max’s body.

“I guess you could show me the fitness trackers. I’ve been looking into getting one for a while now...”
