When to give in to Karen?

...And reward her poor behaviour. 

we've all been there - narrow country lane and for what seems like an eternity (in reality 3 or 4 minutes) you're conscious of a car behind you and the driver is getting impatient. Then she starts a ridiculous overtake rapidly abandoned and then there's a reasonably decent house frontage to pull into and let her go past.  

What usually happens is you pull over, only to find they've met a tractor or a horse or even another car and you now have to wait while they pick their way past. As it was, a nice ill-tempered accelerate of her nondescript 54 reg car, kicking up a load of dust and off she went. There were two kids in the back, looking like The Shining twins, heads turned, vaguely malovent. 

I think the test is what to do that will make her a better driver for the next cyclist - so, folks - when should I concede to to Karen?
