On A Character Study of the Trainwreck

You lost me with the classist comment about the train wreck nature of "working retail" in one's "thirties". Lots of all too grown-up "can't afford to be a train wreck" single moms work in retail - or fast food - to support their children. Perhaps the train wreck serves to help over-burdened working class women to feel less defeated. We may be carrying the world on our shoulders (working jobs that privileged people roll their eyes and sneer at) but at least we aren't dropping the ones we carry.
