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.


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).
