Playing victim aside. If you can't handle being in public when everyone else can you are the one that needs to make concessions. Ma'am if you can't deal with this situation I'll need you to step aside till you can or leave.

Problem is they will do neither. Best practice is to remove the reasonable person, call emergency services on the clearly unwell individual having a breakdown and then compensate the inconvenienced person.

47

u/ThrowawayProse Sep 25 '22

I agree with this. Unfortunately if this woman is having an actual mental breakdown, she needs to be taken care of first. But it’s important to compensate the inconvenienced person, because they often didn’t do anything wrong, and didn’t deserve to deal with all that.

u/Careless-Party-4615 Sep 25 '22

Yeah but customer service usually goes that the reasonable person ends up being inconvenience but doesn't complain enough to be compensated and the unreasonable person is catered to but makes a big deal anyway until given some compensation instead of being trespassed because the police will disturb business more than the unreasonable customer.

Not how it should be but I've seen it many times.

So I love watching the show On Patrol live aka Live PD. Last night there was this call to a hotel. A lady was sitting in the smoking area, about 15-20ft from the entrance and clearly marked as a smoking area. Another woman pulls up, opens her door and starts coughing and freaking all the way the fuck out and goes in screaming at the front desk that she is now “very ill”. Front desk calls PD cause this woman is nutters.

PD shows up and the cop is having none of Karen’s antics. She’s ranting and raving that the smoker outside just took YEARS off her life and she is now “terribly ill”. She refuses to chill the fuck out and the cop asks the front desk if they want the lady trespassed. Front desk says “yes, I want her to leave.” Karen freaks the fuck out demanding a refund. Front desk says “well you booked through a third party so you gotta call them.”

Karen, “but it’s non refundable!” Front desk, “can’t help you.” Karen “but it’s non refundable!”

At this point the cop has had enough and tells her to get her shit and get out or go to jail. Karen cries. Cop moves forward to put her in cuffs. Karen finally goes to get her shit. She starts walking out and she’s going on and on about how they don’t care and she’s mad cause the cops refuse to help her load her shit. Then she gets on the phone with whomever she booked through and tells them about how her “life was cut shorter.” Because of the lady smoking. She’s crying and needs a refund. Then she drives off.

The cop was just looking at his partner like “wtf was that?” Before she left when she was crying the cop told her “ma’am, if you are this sick that a tiny bit of smoke will harm you then why are you out here staying in a hotel?” All she kept saying was that smoking kills and now she’s sooooo sick. This nutter probably goes through life playing victim to get whatever she wants. She probably thought she could get her room compted by crying the way she did. It’s nice to see more businesses telling Karen’s to get the fuck out.

u/BurritoBiceps Sep 24 '22

I used to work at a hotel. Management donated a hotel room to a fundraiser and this couple won the certificate. They stay the night in a smoking room (their request) and then they find the smallest issue wrong; some dirty water (stagnant water because it's a smoking room that rarely gets rented) in the toilet tank and want another free night. I refuse and this man's argument is that the room is unhealthy for his pregnant wife and their unborn baby, he tells me through a cloud of smoke he (or both of them, I'm not sure) filled the room with.

I don't think she wants attention. Girl looks to be in the middle of a panic attack. Had a friend who made it back from Afghanistan that would end up in the store freaking out for random reasons just like this. He unalived himself after a couple years of struggling. PTSD is horrible and this country doesn't have remotely enough mental health resources to even start on the tip of the iceberg.

Agreed. Using sexual assault as a pass to cut in line --and then doubling down by throwing a temper tantrum in order to get her way-- is proof to me that she needs therapy, followed by a straightjacket and a room with padded walls. Hell, I'm a sexual assault victim myself; that doesn't mean I get to scream and throw a fit at a store.

37

u/jswizzle91117 Sep 24 '22

Maybe incidental contact when she cut in line? Like if he was turned looking at the stuff in the checkout line and she cut in front of him, he could have turned and bumped into her by accident. But I think she’s just lying and needs to get her stuff delivered until such time that therapy and self-work makes it safe for her to be out in public again.

Mostly because I have a sister who is a covert narcissist who would do and say things exactly like this so I know what it looks like.

222

u/1Sluggo Sep 24 '22

It’s an extreme over reaction; no idea what the touch point was but she’s entirely unable to self regulate. I understand partially if she’s a recent SA victim but then I’d have to ask why she’s alone; most recent victims won’t go anywhere alone. I mean, it could be un/undertreated mental illness or she could be an immature/narcissistic person who shouldn’t be in public.

185

u/dudeidontknoww Sep 24 '22

if she’s a recent SA victim but then I’d have to ask why she’s alone; most recent victims won’t go anywhere alone

That's running on the assumption she has people in her life to support her while she's going through this. Some people don't have friends or family they can rely on. There's no "correct" way that a victim acts so a third party can determine with 100% certainly that they are or are not a victim.

The amount of keyboard diagnosis I'm seeing on this thread to try and determine if she's being genuine or faking is frankly revolting. Y'all are redditors, not psychiatrists.

u/IHQ_Throwaway Sep 25 '22

some sort of overblown fakeout, but that doesn't make much sense to me because I'm not sure what this woman was trying to accomplish unless her goal was to try and get a random guy thrown in prison

But she never accuses him of grabbing or groping her, and she’s not acting like the touch itself was untoward. She states upfront that she was recently raped and can’t handle being touched by a man. She’s panicking and frozen and needs to get away from what triggered her panic.

I think he touched her innocently, and it was her sudden realization that there was a man close enough to touch her that threw her into panic mode. Less about this man or this touch, more about a sense of danger from not being vigilant enough to know there was a man right there.

This incident has no upside for her. The mental breakdown didn’t get her through the line any quicker, it’s going to take quite a while to bring her adrenaline back down so her brain can work again. A lot of people don’t seem to understand that when you go into a panic state, your brain stops working and you can only focus on removing the danger (real or imagined).

Good example of how America is failing its citizens by treating mental health resources as a luxury. It shouldn’t be on some poor Walmart associates who are barely paid for the jobs they do, let alone equipped to handle something like this. Speaking as a victim of SA I’m not a huge fan of the speculation in the comments on her claim- knowing that all people deal with things differently, even if it’s not how I would- obviously we don’t know if she’s being honest or not but that little detail is irrelevant when this person clearly needs help.

I hate when people say that. Because her individual trauma response shouldn’t affect anyone else’s experience with trauma. And if you don’t believe other victims just because of this one women then that’s on you.

People act like this behavior is unheard of but there are plenty of homeless people with similar behaviors who can’t afford resources for their mental health issues (veterans, abuse victims, etc).

I've seen people have reactions like this to normal situations, after assaults I know actually happened.

Thing is, those people were patients, in the hospital, on the psych floor I worked on. One woman could absolutely not be looked at by male patients, let alone be treated by male doctors. She would start screaming and crying if she saw a man look at her.

This woman is either lying for attention, or seriously, desperately in need of help. I hope for her sake and the sake of those she is around in public that it's the former.

Shutting down the psych wards may have seemed like a virtuous act in the 80s but I think it's gone too far. There are large numbers of people completely incapable of dealing with the real world and need help and they're essentially left on their own. I'm not saying we need to bring back asylums but it's pretty fucking cruel right, basically non existent mental health services unless you're upper middle class.

A lot of things have to change

u/Wafflashizzles Sep 24 '22

I don't think she's getting away with it.. They pulled the guy away to get him checked out right away at customer service or something. It's walmart, there's usually more than 5-10 checkout lanes not counting the self ones.

Lady is probably getting a verbal "do not come back or well call the cops ok" or ye olde police with an ambulance on standby if she doesn't leave voluntarily

What fucking Walmart do you shop at? Any Walmart I've ever been to there was at max 3 registers open.

Ours typically only the tobacco register, but 20 self check outs.

Lmao so screeching is now how we’re settling conflicts?

As soon as he points out she cut the line, it’s like someone opened the “Victim fire hydrant” this inbred shithead has gotten away with screaming her problems away for a while it’s pretty obvious, I would have definitely taken this to the next level and called the police and tried to get this massive Karen in a cop car and off the streets.

Every time you let an entitled Karen get away with behavior like this, it inspires two more potential Karen’s into screeching what they want and getting their way.

As someone with a severe mental illness: no fucking way. It's my job to work on getting well (medications, therapy, and lifestyle changes) and even though things are harder for me than most other people that does not mean I get special treatment (outside of ADA stuff). I'm not special or better than anyone else. It's like being inebriated. A drunk person is still responsible for their actions.

That being said the government should offer free accessable healthcare to everyone. If that happened there'd be less of this going on and more productivity, kindness, and wellness.

No.

However, she might have genuinely not noticed him, as she claims. The meltdown might then have started when she got overwhelmed with the situation when he confronted her about it. Social situations can be extremely stressful for certain mental conditions.

That said, I wouldn't dear make any judgement on her pschological state or possible disorders just based on a short video.
She could just be an utter bitch, but I'd bet she has actual issues and I certainly don't envy her.

u/toolsoftheincomptnt Sep 24 '22

No.

We can empathize with someone’s condition without accommodating it.

I have zero responsibility for entertaining a stranger’s crazy. I am likely to CHOOSE to accommodate them if they are 1) aggressive to the point of danger; or

2) unstable but agreeable in the moment

If somebody loves this girl, they need to help her plan out how to run errands in a healthy way.

I don’t know or love her and I don’t care if her head spins off her neck, she doesn’t get to cut me in line. Somebody else can explain why and dry her tears.

No, but it gives an explanation for her reaction at least. If I was in the scenario personally I would have just walked away and then complained to my bf after, but I'm very non confrontational. Especially once she started screaming though, I would have noped out of that line.

Insinuating there's a difference! *bu-dum tshhh*

But in all seriousness, it feels like some very real trauma combined with a narcissistic sense of entitlement have all worked together to create this unique outburst. There's some real "my problems are everyone else's problems" energy here that led to her standing her ground and screaming at everyone instead of quietly removing herself from the situation.

So many people defending her actions and whipping out their PhD in armchair psychology.

If you act like this when someone asks you to correct your bad behaviour, then you can't expect to be met with endless patience and grovelling apologies. Should a "neurotypical" person be expected to go above and beyond to accommodate actions like this at all times?

Ya boi was polite, reasonable, but stood his ground and denied allegations that he touched her. People are allowed to exist around you, and if you think your rights trump theirs then you do have Main Character syndrome.

The employees handled it extremely well though

"You dont have to leave, but we're gonna get you to another register without some psycho bitch screaming her head off..."

While I have been sexually assaulted, i wouldnt be out doing this over someone calling me out for cutting in line. Yes, the days afterwards left me in a daze, and i had social faux pas, but if i got overwhelmed, i would just break off and go to my car. Everyone handles being sexually assaulted differently, but it doesn't warrant an entire episode

Listen, I’ve had serve mental health issues. I’d be lying if I said I haven’t broken down like this in public.

That being said, you have to take some responsibility for these things. You don’t get to hold up other people in line just because you have anxiety or whatever’s going on here. It’s not an excuse to be rude to other people.

When I’m feeling an attack coming, I move out of the way and isolate myself.

Let’s say I accidentally cut in line, and then someone pointed it out and I felt a huge attack coming on. I would remove myself from the line, go in the corner somewhere, then have my fit until someone comes to help.

She looks like she’s having a panic attack or something. her fight or flight mode is at 300%. Imagine what would be going on in your mind to start screaming at people and shaking like that. I’m not saying she’s acting okay, but I am saying that she’s going through something. Nobody that’s happy would act that way. She would really, really benefit from professional help.

u/wormholeweapons Sep 25 '22

Semi serious for a sec.

So a long while ago I had a discussion with a woman about a particular video game and it’s community. She was a rape survivor. And the discussion was around an NPC dialogue that triggered her and made her uncomfortable.

I empathized with her situation and pointed out that the NPC was optional so perhaps just avoid it. She retorted that even knowing it was there made her upset and not want to play the game.

I then said “ok. Well. Then I think there is a bigger issue here you need to deal with. I strongly suggest counseling and therapy to help you cope with and overcome the trauma you had to go through. Because at no point should a completely voluntary thing within a game completely paralyze you the way it is. It’s unhealthy and you need to seek help on this”.

It went about as you can expect and I was labeled a sympathizer to sexual assault and anti woman and yada yada yada.

The woman in this video needs help. Serious help. Regardless of the reasoning or rationale behind what she is doing. It’s unhealthy for herself and others. and the way we are today, she likely won’t listen to anyone that tells her that.

u/staples93 Sep 25 '22
