So, guys.
I HAVE A PROBLEM.
My mom's becoming an Entitled Parent, and WILL NOT stop bullying people to get what she wants.
We call her "Clone Karen", since we know someone actually named Karen.
How do I fix this?

Since you're at least 18, you need to get your own stuff out of her hands. Cut all ties you can to extricate yourself from her influence and then help others do the same. In all likelihood, you won't be able to make her see things from your side. Be prepared to fail, but try to succeed.

What exactly does she want? World peace? Or just some vodka or something? Just give her the vodka man, no big deal right?

I mean, she wants various things. The other day, she yelled at a guy for stealing a parking spot she wanted.
I'm working on moving out now, but for the time being, SHE WILL NOT SHUT UP

You can’t change anyone who doesn’t want to change.

What are your reactions when she does something like this? Does she turn this on you?

Until you’ve moven out, try to ignore it, don’t go with your mom on errands unless you have to.
