    You’re really giving props to a piece on how a 40 year old woman with a law degree cannot figure out how to handle a sublessor/sublessee problem without calling David Boies (the lawyer she worked for who eventually fired her) after calling countless earnestly married women prostitutes all because they weren’t uncompromising enough to squander all their money and not know basic things like how to rent an apartment? At least she knows where to squarely place the blame for her lack of real relationships: not on the fact that she’s an awful, boring, narcissistic person, but on social media, of course! (I give it two thumbs up for backhandedly namedropping David Foster Wallace.)
