Another whiny Millennial has made the news with her idiotic pathetic demand that others take care of her. This time it was a pathetic wretch named Talia Jane who wrote an open letter to the CEO of the company she was working for, begging that he pay for her poor choices in life.
Here are some excerpts from her moronic post:
When I was a kid, back in the 90s when Spice Girls and owning a pager were #goals, I dreamed of having a car and a credit card and my own apartment. I told my 8-year old self, This is what it means to be an adult.
Now, seventeen years later, I have those things. But boy did I not anticipate a decade and a half ago that a car and a credit card and an apartment would all be symbols of stress, not success.
I left college, having majored in English literature, with a dream to work in media. It was either that or go to law school. Or become a teacher. But I didn’t want to become a cliche or drown in student loans, see. I also desperately needed to leave where I was living — I could get into the details of why, but to sum up: I wanted to die every single day of my life and it took me several years to realize it was because of the environment I was in. So, I picked the next best place: somewhere close to my dad, since we’ve never gotten to have much of a relationship and I like the weather up here. I found a job (I was hired the same day as my interview, in fact) and I put a bunch of debt on a shiny new credit card to afford the move.
She chose to be an English lit major – nobody forced her to make such a dumb decision. And if you do that, you can’t expect to have a decent job straight out of college. I’m sorry, but you can’t. The world just doesn’t need that many English lit majors.
Then she whines that she has to work for a whole YEAR before getting a promotion!
Coming out of college without much more than freelancing and tutoring under my belt, I felt it was fair that I start out working in the customer support section of Yelp/Eat24 before I’d be qualified to transfer to media. Then, after I had moved and got firmly stuck in this apartment with this debt, I was told I’d have to work in support for an entire year before I would be able to move to a different department. A whole year answering calls and talking to customers just for the hope that someday I’d be able to make memes and twitter jokes about food. If you follow me on twitter, which you don’t, you’d know that these are things I already do.
You know why they have that policy? Because people with useless degrees like hers are a dime a dozen. If she had any marketable skill, then they’d promote her far quicker.
What an insufferable idiot. And it sounds like she found a whole gang of insufferable idiots to be idiotic with her:
So here I am, 25-years old, balancing all sorts of debt and trying to pave a life for myself that doesn’t involve crying in the bathtub every week. Every single one of my coworkers is struggling. They’re taking side jobs, they’re living at home. One of them started a GoFundMe because she couldn’t pay her rent. She ended up leaving the company and moving east, somewhere the minimum wage could double as a living wage. Another wrote on those neat whiteboards we’ve got on every floor begging for help because he was bound to be homeless in two weeks. Fortunately, someone helped him out. At least, I think they did. I actually haven’t seen him in the past few months. Do you think he’s okay? Another guy who got hired, and ultimately let go, was undoubtedly homeless.
Anyway, she continues on this way like an entitled brat, demanding the world make up for her poor life choices.
Thank God in heaven that the CEO of Yelp is a rational person, because this happened two hours later:
UPDATE: As of 5:43pm PST, I have been officially let go from the company. This was entirely unplanned (but I guess not completely unexpected?) but any help until I find new employment would be extremely appreciated.
She posted links to her paypal so that other idiots can pay her way through life, but I didn’t want to repost them here. I do encourage you to cast as much vituperation at her Twitter account as possible though:
If there is a whiny petulant equivalent to Hitler’s butthole, it’s this idiot’s character.
