On Sunday, the website Refinery29.com published a "money diary" from a 21-year-old marketing intern at Siggi's Yogurt company.  The headline read, quote, "A Week in New York City on $25-an-Hour."

 

 

And yeah, that sounds tough!  I mean, New York City is insane.  How could anyone do it as an intern making $25-an-hour, or $750-a-week?  Well . . . here's how.  If you get deeper into the article and the woman's breakdown of her costs, it becomes clear.

 

 

Her cost for rent:  $2,100 . . . which her parents pay.  Student loans:  $0, her parents paid for college.  Health insurance:  $0, she's on her parents' plan.  Phone:  $0, she's on her parents' plan.  Netflix, Spotify, and Amazon:  $0, again thanks to her parents.

 

 

Oh . . . AND her parents and grandpa give her $1,100 a month in allowance.

 

 

So what DOES she pay for?  Her monthly tanning and waxing . . . her $210 gym membership . . . MoviePass . . . and going to restaurants.

 

 

Someone took screenshots and posted them on Twitter . . . and now they're going viral, with EVERYONE mocking the woman's obliviousness.

 

 

And while this is so tone deaf it seems like it might be satire, Refinery29 isn't presenting it that way at all . . . in fact, they've updated the headline to, quote, "A Week in New York City on $25-an-Hour and $1k Monthly Allowance."
