Girl, I’ve so been there.

Surprised. Confused. Curious.

Are we all missing the bigger point of the original post? Maybe there isn’t one. (Regardless its authenticity – which was challenged early on.)

I’m confused by so many of the responses that suggest it’s just a rite of passage to work for un-liveable minimum wage.

I get the budget comments and some of the other advice, but it all seems to be delivered with an acerbic parental tone.

What’s really perplexing to me – the large amount of well known activists denouncing the original post as so much whining.

Did I miss the memo?
