Just when you’d forgotten about the poor little rich college girl who gets nasty looks from her doorman each time Her J. Crew parcels arrive, here’s the sequel to fashion brands being unwittingly dragged into Thought Catalogue‘s continued demise.
Today one Racheal Saks takes to the internet to whine about the daily trials and tribulations of being privileged. Her discontent was incited by the checkout girl at Gristedes failing to give her a big smile when she waltzed in, “big ass shopping bag in tow”, to fuel up on Diet Coke and Coco Lite snack cakes after hitting up a Mulberry sample sale. Rachael voices her concerns thusly:
What the fuck? Could they not be that obvious? I should have stopped at my apartment and put my bags down then if they were going to judge me like that. And I got my purse at a 70% discount so they can fuck off. I am sorry that I was born into great financial circumstances and my father likes to provide for me. I am sorry I don’t have to go to a state school to save my parents money. What do you want from me?
It just seems really petty and makes you look bitter and unhappy with your own life if you are casting nasty glares at college girls in Gristedes because you’re a cashier. What purpose does it serve if all you want to do is reflect your own misery on other people?
But, luckily, she understands understands that rich people who try to relate to poor people are displaying some ‘honestly really disgusting behavior’ of the sort she is definitely not displaying here:
My parents bought me clothes from Old Navy and I ate at McDonalds on weekends when I was a kid.
Here’s a Thought: Enjoy your purchase, be grateful you were born into financial privilege and display some empathy for the checkout girl who was serving customers all day while you were going shopping. Oh, and maybe try being less racist on your Twitter feed. Yikes.
