I spend the Easter weekend in the company of some Brits, Americans and Aussies who currently live in Hong Kong and Singapore. They were loudly whining about how hellish their lives are in their lavish apartments (paid for by the company), the daily grind of telling the live-in maid what to cook after she's done the laundry and the housework, the endless round of cocktail parties at the tennis/yacht/cuntry club, the dink in the new Merc after the driver swerved to avoid a poor person, the 'cost' of private education (also paid for by the company BTW), blah blah blah. I wanted to scream at these lazy, selfish twats to get over themselves. One woman was bleating about how she just couldn't get 'decent help around the house' and had worked her way through several agencies trying to find someone who 'won't steal the silver or use the phone when I'm not there'. Bitch. I suggested that perhaps she'd be happier if she cleaned her own house, cooked her own meals, did her own laundry, raised her own kids but she said that would be impossible because 'these people NEED people like me to employ them'. Unfortunately she has a point but do these overworked and underpaid peons need The Arrogant Attitude too?
