Thinking you have it bad?

You ever have one of those days where your computer won’t boot up quickly, just keeps clocking and clocking, your smart phone refuses to link up to 4G, and dammit! FaceBook will not load pictures on your feed?!? Or you just can’t find the right clothes and get out the door in time to get to work? Maybe a bad hair day- all attempts at taming your hair have failed. You are now stuck with the modern day look of a sort-of Einstein height and Ben King frizz that just refuses to be mashed down, smoothed out, straightened or braided and corporate dress policy won’t let you hide the Phil Spector-like mess under a hat (#firstworldproblems)?

Wonder how much hairspray it takes to achieve this? Also- you would have thought people would have been suspicious of this guy LONG before he was busted. Just saying.

Well, at least most of us don’t have to worry about being taken at knife point, or drugged at a job interview and then sold off into slavery for a whopping $200.

Can you believe that it is still happening? And apparently on quite a grand scale.  Although this article is dealing in the Bangladesh/Malaysia area, there are plenty of reports that human trafficking is happening here, in the good old U.S of A. too. Scary thought, isn’t it? Really puts your life into perspective, doesn’t it?
