kamen707036d"This should be motivational. Now clap."
ars1291936dOh wow, what a harsh life! I can only imagine the horrors.
retoor218836dSo, what did you learn?
retoor218836dTry to remember all the names of the servants. It's not easy
netikras3265136dOne more tough day in her life
Oktokolo1200736dSo the "life advice" was "just be born rich"?
Sid2006273336d@Oktokolo Honestly, I have no idea what the lesson was. It's why I tagged this story as Joke/Meme.
Oktokolo1200736d@Sid2006 I guess, the "rant" tag would have been valid. In case of doubt, there also is the "random" catch-all.
retoor218835dTake this good advise
Sid2006273335d@retoor Liquidize your assets, buy Powerball tickets. It works!
PepeTheFrog122032d@retoor along with "stop choosing to be poor!"
At an office job I worked at (2018), one day we were told to drop everything we were doing for the day and gather around, because there was a lady (about 70 years old) who had stopped by to give us "Life Advice".
The lady started her speech with this statement:
"In 1974, I lived in a mansion with 7 servants at my service and 4 cars".
I'm not making this up.
Then she rambled on for 15 mins about how she faced difficulties in her life, starting from studying in a boarding school in Switzerland, then coming back to India to work at the Taj Hotel (Mumbai) under a team of world-renowned chefs who were mean to her, at her internship which paid her about $2500 USD a month in 1985.
But the point she made was, in spite of all her difficulties, she never gave up and kept working.
When she was finally done, NOBODY clapped. She felt awkward as hell and we saw it on her face.
I still chuckle when I think about that incident.
