"It's Hard to 'Lean-In' as a Single Mom;" Rich Whines Edition

Sheryl Sandberg acknowledged Friday that her best-seller Lean In did not take into account how tough it is for single mothers to get ahead – a hard reality she's had to face since the sudden death of her husband last year.
I am sorry for her loss, but Jesus! No fucking shit!

Sandberg is both rich and makes a shitload of money as a FB muckety-muck. There is little doubt that Sandberg can afford to hire all of the help that she needs in order to be a widowed mother and have her career.

No, she's not faced with the need to leave work because the day care is closing for the day. She's not running the risk of prison because she had nobody to watch the kids when she went to work.

It's relatively easy to "lean in" when you can afford to hire a supporting staff to ensure that your family life doesn't pull the ground out from under you.

OMG, this poor COO has to get on without her CEO husband...let's ask our grandchildren to send her their piggy banks.

Yeah, the CEO hubby who took a job in Portland, OR and then moved the company's HQ to the Frisco Bay area so he could be near his COO wife-- not caring for a picosecond about all of the other people working for the company who then had to uproot their families and move, or find other jobs.

The self-entitlement of that crowd is almost nauseating.

Why "almost"?

In this political season, the trip-level for "nauseating" has gotten very hard to reach.
