More overwhelmingly white people problems

Actually, just the 1%:
People who don’t have money don’t understand the stress,” said Alan Dlugash, a partner at accounting firm Marks Paneth & Shron LLP in New York who specializes in financial planning for the wealthy. “Could you imagine what it’s like to say I got three kids in private school, I have to think about pulling them out? How do you do that?”
Um, pull them out?

Oh, yes, that's infinitely worse than hearing your kids' tummies rumbling for days on end, or having no money and knowing that if one of them gets sick and needs a doctor, it's going to mean twenty calls a day from bill collectors.

More torches and pitchforks, please.

Hey! Asshole! Here's an idea!

hy don't you get a second job on the afternoon shift at Wal-Mart?

That's what the 99% have to do.

So much more traumatic than facing the prospect of living on the street after you lost your job and your home was foreclosed.

"How do you do that?"

Allow me:

Hey ya over-privileged little gravy suckers. The free ride's over. I hear that the army's looking for a few good meat bags. Time to produce. Adios. Don't let the door hit ya in te ass on the way out.

PS Your inheritance was spent years ago. Our inheritance is hidden overseas in various hidden accounts.

Mummy and Poppa

There ya go. Not hard.

Oh well according to the story it's not just the private school tuition: they're also forced to ditch the summer rental and an upgrade from their 1,200-sq-ft Brooklyn duplex.

I mean, the horror! Where's your compassion, man?

Send that man the collected works of Dickens.

Or maybe just the first half of Gladiator-at-Law (F. Pohl & C.M. Kornbluth).

The World's Tiniest Violin can barely be seen with a microscope.
