The entitlement mentality
Alumna sues college because she hasn't found a job (from CNN)

This is so silly that I hardly know where to begin.

The plaintiff in this case graduated with a BBA in IT.  Three months later, she doesn't have a job.  Of course, the fact that she had a 2.7 GPA and is trying to find a job in the middle of a recession doesn't have anything to do with her failure to find a job.  According to her, the problem is that the college placement office isn't getting her interviews.

*facepalm*

It doesn't help her case that in her filing, she misspells "tuition" twice, "suing" once, and can't perform basic addition ($70K + $2K = $75K).

She also can't spell "reimbursement"...but that is beside the point.

Wow, three whole months without a job. It took me nearly a year after I graduated to find the one I have now, and it never once crossed my mind to sue the school.

She also needs to realize that a GPA of 2.7 is not going to make employers fight in the street over her.

This is when I got a job as a substitute teacher. It wasn't fun but it was $75 a day that I didn't have otherwise.

See, I knew that my laziness, location, and lack of motivation weren't the reasons that I can't get a job!

1) Graduate college
2) Slack on job hunt
3) ???
4) Lawsuit!

I seriously hope this suit is just thrown out.
