So last week I committed the cardinal sin of FUI - Facebooking Under The Influence. And I may have, kind of sort of, posted something about the Occupy Wall Street people that made me sound like a bit of a heartless whiney bitch. The gist of the post was that I had little sympathy for the occupiers since I commute 2+ hours one way to work every day and don't get home until 12 hours after I leave the house.
To redeem myself, here is my explanation. You see, here in Massachusetts we are subjected to the news, pictures, and videos of Occupy Boston. And unlike New York, the Massachusetts occupiers primarily seem to be spoiled recent college grads from Northeastern or Boston University who owe 100K plus in school loans and who are very pissed off for not yet being welcomed into Massachusetts upper middle class society even though they majored in something like Ancient Herbal Teas of the Old World or The Biology of Psychosis In Tree Dwelling Marsupials.
And that to me is annoying. That being said, I do believe corporate greed is out of control, that we are losing the middle class, that those who are fortunate to have great financial success should be willing to help out those who may need a helping hand, and that something has got to be done to turn this economy around or we are all going to be in deeper doo doo than we are now.
Now excuse me while I go occupy my car for my hellacious 68 mile commute to Boston.
