TIME EDITOR-AT-LARGE IS FREAKING OUT BECAUSE AN AMTRAK ATTENDANT MADE FUN OF HIM .
DC:When you’re riding a fancy, pricy train from New York to Washington, D.C., and you’re a journalist working as a big editor at TIME magazine, you want people to treat you with the respect you deserve. So when an Amtrak attendant makes fun of you for ordering a hot dog as you’re approaching the nation’s capital, raise the bridge and send the worker to the alligators.
If only the proles would just get in line and treat our intelligentsia with the respect they deserve.
“I order a hot dog on the Acela,” tweeted Anand Giridharadas, TIME‘s editor-at-large, an MSNBC analyst and “Morning Joe” regular, on Friday afternoon “The attendant laughs at me. Mean-laughs. I ask why. ‘Because we’re going to be in DC in a few minutes, and you want a hot dog.’ ?????? I feel like I’m in a play whose tickets I couldn’t afford. We are not yet in Baltimore. Half an hour to go.”
The attendant mean laughed at him?
Is he five years old?
A one-way ticket to D.C. on the Acela express can cost anywhere from $173 to over $400 if you opt for first class.
But this guy is not done complaining about hot dogs.
Incidentally, this isn’t the first time he has gotten all cranky about something stupid. more
