I read an interesting news article some time back on this.
It was about the "trendy" people, rich "jet setters," who had been raised with the proverbial "silver spoon" in their mouths.
Anyway, many of these parents, the fathers, in particular, were finding that their "precious little" (spoiled rotten) girls were not coping with the REAL world AT ALL, once they were out in the real WORK world.
In a particular case they highlighted, daddy's little girl, a Vassar grad, kept jet setting all over the world, while her peers began to make good careers in various Fortune 500 companies, and were no longer around for her to pal around with, talking about how fulfilling their jobs were, etc.
So, she wanted a job, and daddy pulled a few strings, called in a favor or two, and got her a good job, not base entry level, at a company of this caliber.
The first thing that happened was she clashed with management about the mandatory business professional style dress code. She thought she should be able to dress like she always had.
The second thing that happened was she felt entirely infringed upon when management said she could not use company time, nor the company phone, to spend arranging her social life.
The third thing that happened was she was enraged to find that as a new employee she ONLY got TWO WEEKS OFF for vacation, and she announced that she WOULD be gone ALL SUMMER like normal, for her, to somewhere, I think the Riviera, and she did, and was appalled when she found out, when she came back, that she was FIRED.
