Looks like someone named Karen would hang this next to her eat pray love signs. I don’t think our FDL can get any better.
I somehow missed this becoming a thing

Both the memes and the meme backlash
===============================

My name is Karen. I would like to register a complaint.

My name has been everywhere on the Internet in recent weeks, with #Karen trending on Twitter, flooding TikTok and becoming the subject of social media memes. #AndThenKarenSnapped also became a viral trend, describing white women losing their tempers.

In the past several years, “Karen” has come to represent a certain archetype of middle-aged white female privilege — or the new n-word, depending on whom you ask. Yup, “Karen” is the new black.

A young Karen likely would have been the class snitch, tattling on her classmates to the teacher to get them in trouble.

Middle-aged Karen is the one asking to see your manager. And a Karen at the peak of her powers will call the police on someone for a mild inconvenience...........

In recent years, the name "Karen" has been used as an insult to describe white middle-aged women who are perceived to be obnoxious or racist.

The pizza franchise's New Zealand arm initially said it wanted to give "nice Karens" a break from negativity.

But some said it was tone-deaf, ignored more important issues, and "rewarded privilege".

What was the offer?

A giveaway, titled "Calling all (nice) Karens" was posted on the pizza chain's Australian and New Zealand pages.

It asked those named Karen to tell Domino's in 250 words how they were one of the "nice ones".

"The name 'Karen' has become synonymous with anyone who is entitled, selfish and likes to complain," Domino's chief marketing officer in the region, Allan Collins, said while introducing the offer.

"What used to be a light-hearted meme has become quite the insult to anyone actually named Karen.

"Well, today we're taking the name Karen back. At Domino's, we're all about bringing people together and we want to celebrate all the great Karens out there by shouting them a free pizza!"..........................

Before we bought our house 8 years ago, one of my deal breakers was an HOA. I told my wife I would not consider the house. I have no patients for that dumb foolery from stuck up people with no life.
flash forward 2 years and her parents bought a house with an HOA. my father in law says most of the meetings turn into yelling matches and are always close to first fights and threats of lawsuits..

We have an HOA that's $300 a year, and that's mainly for clearing snow. Otherwise you can put a car on cinder blocks out front if you want.
Our's is $400/yr and it's mostly for cutting common area grass and who knows what else. 4 years ago is the last meeting I attended. They had trouble getting anyone to volunteer to be President. After the management company literally begged anyone to volunteer, I stood up and said that the lack of interest in the position should who show how unimportant the HOA is to residents. I said I'd volunteer and my main focus would be to fire the management company and disband the HOA. Someone else volunteered taking a less aggressive approach.

For the most part HOAs work. It's when "the rule" bumps heads with "the person who doesn't understand the rule so therefore it shouldn't exist" camp that things can get contentious. Or when the same guy argues, "nobody told me" when flyers went out, emails were sent and the rule existed in black and white when you moved in. Get over yourself Bob. Every argument I've seen at an HOA meeting has been started by that person who only shows up when they are pissed about something.
