Your response to the trust fund kid was idiotic. This kid came to you, an advice columnist, with a serious question, and you took the easy way out, going with the knee-jerk negativity that she’s probably received her entire life for being a “rich kid.” Yeah, because growing up rich means life is a never-ending party of rainbows and she should know instinctively how to pursue happiness.
Negativity? What the fuck are you talking about? I wasn’t being negative. I wasn’t even being glib. My proposal was completely serious.
1% is a small price to pay for purpose, and that’s what I’m offering. It’ll be the best money the kid ever spends.
