Welcome once more to Cry-Baby of the Week. It's a simple premise—we present you with two wimps, and then ask you to decide who is the bigger pussyole.
Cry-Babies #1: Adam and Sarah Monk
The incident: A couple decided that Gambia was the right place to spend their honeymoon and were shocked to find that their hotel room wasn't up to scratch.
The appropriate reaction: Suck it up, maybe complain at reception, but generally just try to make the best of it because, y'know, it's your honeymoon and you're happy just to be together no matter how much the facilities suck.
The actual reaction: The Sun article about this is quite low on details. It says that the couple ran into a "string of problems" while at the hotel. From what I can tell, these problems amounted to: They were given a twin room rather than the double room they had requested, the staff of the hotel expected tips, and there were "faults" with the "air-conditioning, plug sockets, shower, bathroom, and curtains."
Which, sure, all of that sounds annoying. However, they did not actually complain to anyone about it while they were at the hotel. They chose instead to just cut their stay short by eight days and spend £600 on a flight home.
That's actually them in that photo above. IDK if this makes me sound like a snob (it does), but to me, they don't exactly look like the sort of people who should be spending their honeymoon in Gambia. To be clear, they're not on death row. They haven't just been told their child is dead. Their dog hasn't just died in a fire. They are two people who went on holiday, and didn't get the hotel room they wanted, and then didn't tell anyone. How does a story like this end up in a national newspaper? Would they have had to actually call The Sun and tell them about it? That must be it, right? Fuuuuuuuuucking hell guys.
Cry-Baby #2: The bosses of Lauren Odes
The incident: A woman was fired for being too hot. As in sexy hot. Not too warm.
The appropriate reaction: Nothing. I would fucking love to work with some people who are too hot. (Apologies to any of my coworkers who are reading this. You're all beautiful in your own ways.)
The actual reaction: Lauren claims that her Orthodox Jewish boss repeatedly rejected her work outfits, claiming that they were "too sexy." Even going as far as to force her to wear a bath-robe on the shop floor. When Lauren left the shop to attempt to buy a new, more modest outfit, she was fired.
As Lauren says in the above video, she was not working in a synagogue, she was working in a place that sold "thongs with hearts placed in the female genital area" and "boy shorts for women that say 'hot' in the buttocks area" (LOL)—so it seems unreasonable to expect staff to dress conservatively.
So who is the biggest cry-baby? Let us know in the poll below so that we can shame one of these self-serious pussies forever.
