    Sometimes I hate working with teenage girls.

    They think that staff's only job is to cater to their wants. Then they get pissed because god forbid we have other things to deal with, like calling the child abuse hotline, and don't get around to talk about what we're doing for Saturday funday, which by the way is a privilege...
