Unlike many supposedly "poor and starving" people like poor college students and starving students, these people probably are *poor* and sometimes starving to death. Not like those Africans in the deserts or anything, but you know what I mean. Sometimes it bothers me when college goers complain about being pennyless, since they're at least getting an education that they can try to make money with. The poor and starving waitresses of the world don't have a whole lot going for them.. except maybe free coffee on the job.
