Wow.
Well, there is the future of our idiocracy.
Right there.
The only justice is that some of them will graduate and end up actually preparing wraps for a living.

Every time someone mocks a snowflake, it should be considered evidence of the total failure of the baby boomers.

I don't get the outrage. For $22,000 a year these kids at least deserve a chicken caeser wrap prepared in the proper way.

Dump it into a bowl and call it a chicken taco salad.

The entitled crotchfruit of today thinks they have to have things just "so" and can't be different from the rest of the crowd. Well little snowflakes, get over yourselves and get on with your life, like everyone else. When your entitled ass gets back home momma can make your food just the way you like it, from McDs.

I complained about the food in college. Particularly the way it would turn my bowels into an aerosol spray.

As a veteran of UMCP's dining halls, I have to say:

You'll get over it.

The only decent food available there was the salads... Those rocked, since it's an Ag college. Kids today are whining about how their frou-frou wraps are made?

The open wrap ends are particularly galling.

Oh fark all of them with a sandwich wrap, but they'd probably enjoy it.

I agree with you: The entitled crotchfruit of today thinks they have to have things just "so" and can't be different from the rest of the crowd. Well little snowflakes, get over yourselves and get on with your life, like everyone else. When your entitled ass gets back home momma can make your food just the way you like it, from McDs.


They won't and this is a preview of our future.

To be honest, the "open-ended" wrap does sound pretty annoying.

my question isn't why students are annoyed that dining services at some university took the traditional "on the go" meal of choice the world over and messed it. My question is why the hell the washington post felt a puff piece in a student paper needed to be rebroadcast to the world?

To be fair, Terps have the least going on between their ears of any student body in the ACC.

FTA: "It's really difficult to eat because everything falls out of the bottom. It's not that hard to fold the bottom end," she told the paper.

If it's so simple, then how about you take a few seconds to fold the end of it yourself prior to eating it, Princess Peach?

FTA: Claire Tomaszewski, being a materials science and engineering major, naturally had a thought about the new wrap construction method. Her thought was not positive. "It's really difficult to eat because everything falls out of the bottom. It's not that hard to fold the bottom end," she told the paper. She added: "If I am turned off by it, some other people must be, too."

I'm actually speechless...

Meanwhile, in China, for each of these whiny students there's an honor student focused on learning and positioning themselves for global wage competition. Enjoy those wraps kiddies, pretty soon you'll be living on 5lb blocks of government cheese.

I wonder how many people commenting about the Snowflakes complaining about their wraps would do the same thing if their company's cafe started serving their food of preference in a way that they found unappealing. After all, the college student is the university's customer. It's not like their getting their food for free.

Being "open-ended" without a fold at the bottom would just make it a soft taco, right? Fillings in a tortilla that is folded over.

Also, just so we can remember our struggles for sandwich correctness... sometimes minor complaints are worth addressing.

Having actually worked at a job preparing wraps (in college, so not exactly "for a living"), open-ended wraps are bullshiat. That shiat's going to fall out.

What do the native americans have to fear? Here in Okla seems like every few miles there is a casino. They are poppin up like fireworks stands during the 4th of july!! The indians don't have a damn thing to worry about as far a poverty goes or cash flow in the tribe. Hell to find out how high one is in the tribe just look in the front yard and see how many non running cars there are, it's a status thing i think.

Really. Do you think ANY of these students are going to pay their student loans? Nope - YOU just took the $22K per year hit, not these still-breastfeeding mamas boys.

It would be too "unfair" to ever have to pay money back that you owe. We should tattoo every one of these brats on their head so that they are not allowed any credit of any kind throughout life - their moral objection to paying back loans assures they will default on everything, period.

Are the pro-lifers saying the pregnant women are "Indian Givers" for giving the fetus a chance at life then taking it awaywith an abortion? That would be awesome!

If someone made me a wrap with both ends open I'd be pissed off too. I probably wouldn't be speaking to the media about it though.

Perducci: Perhaps to mock the students' ridiculous concerns, much as we're doing here?


whats to mock? that some students want the dining hall to change the way they prepare a certain food type so that its more portable? how is that unreasonable? i filled out a complaint card at my work cafeteria asking them to stop salting the soups so much. does that make me an entitled snowflake who deserves an article of mockery in a national news outlet?
 
2012-09-24 03:27:53 PM
The article seemed less like "The Students are angry" and more like "someone asked the students whether the liked the old wraps better, and they said that they did".

Heaven forbid they answer honestly when someone asks them.

It's easier to fold it as it's being prepared than after it's been folded, particularly if they wrap it up in paper for you. Also, most people (who presumably don't do it for a living) are crap at folding wraps by themselves.
