It's.

DUMB.
I'm open to alternative suggestions, they'd be preferred over complaining and criticism over word usage.


I guess that's me complaining about you complaining.

How about just calling "Karens" what they are, based on their behavior. I know this is the 2020s, and everything has a code name("Brandon" for Biden, etc), but it would be more to the point, not to mention gender neutral.

Well, wah.

If you want to change English as it is, you should probably start somewhere other than an online forum for auto enthusiasts.

"Change English"?

Referring to entitled snobs, jerks, slobs, and other undesirables by a random female name is not proper English, be it the King's, North American English, or otherwise.

It's just stupid and frankly childish.

And if I recall, this is the "COMPLETELY off-topic" sub, as spelled out above. So anything, short of personal attacks, threats, and solicitations to sell a product or service, is fair game here.

So let's "UNKAREN" the dialogue, America!

Re: things that annoy you

I used to work for a guy named Hector - and that's when I discovered what they meant when they said someone hectors you. I am sure there are other names that work like that.

Re: things that annoy you

Every time after I log in, I can not find where I click to post a new message. I try here, I try there and after 5 minutes I forgot what I tried so far. So far I have posted two messages and probably two replies and each time was after randomly clicking on things that did not seem to have a clear caption or direction.

Re: things that annoy you

I just noticed everyone's city is published! This is the first forum I have EVER been on that actually puts your city for all to see. WOW! Who are these people?

I've heard of one being heckled, but never "hectored".

I have three annoying bots I must be off to attending to...!

ANYONE would be confused with this sentence structure:


What the heck is he trying to say here - read it aloud a couple times, if that helps.

If that confuses you then there is no helping you.
