A showdown between a teenage girl and a woman dubbed ‘parking ticket’ has gone viral on TikTok.
The images uploaded by Marli Mclaren on Wednesday showed the moment the 19-year-old attempted to park in an empty space in Mooloolaba on the Sunshine Coast.
But the teenager, who took her sister for lunch, soon realized she wouldn’t be able to park because a middle-aged woman with her dog was getting in the way of saving space for her husband.

‘You can’t do that’, was heard in the video.
Could you please move? You cannot save a park. ‘
The woman, wearing a baseball cap and sportswear, ignored the teenage driver and stood firmly in the middle of the parking lot.
Another resident approached the pet’s owner and asked her to move too.
The ‘Karen’ held out until she realized she was being filmed.
“Is there any reason you’re filming me?” She asked Mrs. McLaren.
“Because you can’t,” the driver replied.

The woman then threatened to call the police.
Mrs. McLaren captioned the video: ‘Has anyone else dealt with a Karen before? I tried to reserve a park by standing in it haha ’.
While many agreed that the woman should not have reserved the spot by getting in the way, others decided the 19-year-old was wrong by filming the incident.
“She was there first fun, unfortunately you are the Karen in this scenario,” one person wrote.
You’re the Karen. Let her book it, ”shared another.
Others begged the teen to explain how the situation ended.

Mrs. Mclaren said the woman did not call the police and eventually moved because her husband found a parking space elsewhere.
She parked the car and thanked the woman who also asked ‘Karen’ to move, but said the pet owner continued to question her.
“She told me I was immature because I took her in, and finally I said to her, look what you’re doing – you’re starting a fight with someone 19”.
The showdown didn’t end until Mrs. McLaren walked away.
