Starving on the Prosciutto-and-Brie Poverty Diet

Heed the cry of an entitled young American hipster: Woe is me, me, me, me, me!

Talia Jane, a 25-year-old melodramatic millennial, made social media waves last week with her “open letter” to the CEO of crowd-sourced review website Yelp. The indigent English major in smart glasses lamented her deplorable plight toiling in the company’s San Francisco-based customer support office of its food delivery and takeout division Eat24 — oh, the poetic injustice — as she bravely battled hunger pangs.

    Someone needs to put on their big girl panties and be an adult.

    • It’s frightening what universities are producing.

        Same goes for Teachers College’s. Just did a round of interviews to fill two positions for next year. Oh my Fucking God……….

          My neighbor did some interviews a couple years ago for a teachers college. Lots of dorks showed up dressed like bums and one guy brought his mommy.

        It’s not just the universities; it’s parents who never leave the house with their kids without an arsenal of high-calorie “snacks” just in case the wee darlings start feeling hunger pangs between meals. A whole generation of kids has grown up to view even the slightest feeling of hunger as an intolerable need that must be immediately satisfied, rather than just as a normal feeling a well-nourished person starts to get an hour or two before mealtimes which is not going to do one any harm. When I was a kid, my mother’s usual response if I complained to her about being hungry and wanting something to snack on between meals was “it won’t kill you to wait until lunch/dinner”, and she was right.

    Her most ridiculous comment is about how she woke up once with “hunger pangs” so fixed herself a bowl of rice, like it’s something we should pity her about. Did someone forget to tell her that rice is food, and she is damn lucky to have it? A goodly portion of humanity would love to be able to eat a bowl of rice every time they felt hungry. Stupid entitled brat.

    Didn’t read the whole article, but I think it left some things out. In particular, her ex-boss used her as an excuse to demand San Francisco subsidize rents because why should it be up to him to pay his employees more?
