Humans love to lecture other humans -- you may have noticed
this, especially if you're the one being lectured. Perhaps it's
because you're a child and have to listen to your parents or
teachers go on about don't do this or don't do that. Perhaps
it's because despite your obvious gifts you're
not the boss of
this, or any situation. And you're sick and tired of this
lecturing -- get better grades, get a job, work harder, since it
appears to purely be designed to make the lecturer feel
better about themselves -- fuck these people who've had
everything handed on a plate.
You've heard about this "privilege" thing but don't really know
how to use it -- it seems hard to claim it as you're sipping
Pinot Noir and the rude serving person from Guatemala just
won't stop by and take your appetizer order.
Well, fear no more. With our brand new app, it's as easy as
tapping the screen -- all of your lunch or dinner companions
already have their phones out anyway! The app will quickly
display the privilege order at the table, so everyone can
generate just the proper note of outrage at everyone else's

||Love it, though often people figure out the pecking order of
a group without needing an app.
||AKA: Flex Your Freakin' Privilege.
||"Uhhh, not my table, sorry. (You scum, you do not deserve
my perfect service and attention for your meal. You cheap
son of a bitch. Go away, sit somewhere else. Let somebody
else work their ass off for mere pennies. You tip like shit and
you smell like shit. You ain't getting no food from me. I see
how you are, I've got a phone too, you sorry bastard.")
||^ Ahh, the Wong Kei in better days. Management change
means waiters are on mildly abusive, which kind of ruins the

There's a interesting niche for rude waitstaff. <link>
