@FreddyRex Yes, that's right, we're ~so different~ from literally every other developed (and several developing) countries in the world.

Well, this is some stellar, exhaustive, well-researched journalism. A Pulitzer for you, sir! Anyway, what the hell does the skinhead have to do with it?! Oh, I forgot, in your country poor people aren't all that welcome in hospitals. Pro tip: when you're writing about something as huge as the NHS, do some fucking research.
The best way to get past automated-voice recognition, which I discovered when drunkenly trying to cancel a lost credit card at about 4 in the morning, is to yell and swear at it. "FUCK YOU, YOU FUCKING ISAAC ASIMOV PIECE OF SHIT, I WANT TO SPEAK TO A GODDAMN HUMAN BEING, NOT YOUR STUPID FUCKING ROBOT ASS."

Wow, the closing to this piece was wonderful. My relationship is about to become an LDR so as I was reading this I guessed that it was going to end in a breakup, saying that it wasn't worth the money and the relationship didn't last. I'm so, so glad to hear that it did work out! I almost teared up during that last line.
Dear Fast Company, is "Millennials don't buy stuff because they are broke" not a catchy enough hook?
THINGS I LOVE: VITRIOLIC WOMEN HUMOROUSLY OUTSIZED TAKES ON GENDER ESSENTIALISM CONTRACEPTION-BASED HUMOR This article "has it all," A+, would favstar again.
Ah, Gerrard and Parliament. Or, as I like to call it, Toronto's butthole.
@ASCtvartedun Not to further pile on you, but the author never mentions a "maid" and doesn't seem especially spoiled. She and her family were somewhat trapped in, and attempting to keep up, a lifestyle they couldn't really afford during a drawn-out divorce settlement. She's also only 25! Which is, in general, the Age of Rude Awakenings.
@claudineonthedole quick note - "bad luck" isn't actually a thing. A good knife is a great gift.
@cbrownson Possibly an 'm'?
