Stupid, drunken public school trash.

Dear Lynda:

What if I told you that Ms. Black graduated with honors from Head Rpyce School and Princeton, with a degree in Computer Science. And that she thought she was at a Ferrari dealership -- she'd been (over-)celebrating having taken her start-up public, and as a newly minted multi-millionaire, was intent on buying a deluxe car -- for cash?

Would that change your view of this escapade?

I happen to know ...

... that none of the above is likely to be true, but unless you actually have better information, you might ponder what hostility you harbour that impels you to spew forth such bile. Then think about the possibility that it's eating you up -- Ms. Black, after all, will sober-up -- will you wise-up?

Hey Lynda are you one of those stuck up diablo private school trash graduates or are you just making your kids into that? Good thing people like you don't send you kids to those terrible SRVUSD school. You might lower the quality.

Drunken bum. No matter what she may have done in the past, she is endangering all of us by being weak and unable to act like a responsible adult. Throw the book at her.

Linda isn't the first to post that kind of comment. I'm convinced that they're written by agents provocateurs pretending to be complete jerks, intent on making folks think that people who didn't attend public school have no class and are simply... well, we can't print that sort of thing.

Nobody could be that low.... could they?

OK, i am not condoning excessive irresponsible drinking here: However i find it absurd that people are pointing to her "schooling" as the reason for her behavior. The majority of young adults, regardless of the school they attend, will drink alcohol. Private school kids are kids like all the others. I do find it strange that this young lady was wandering alone in the parking lot of a car dealership: did someone drop her off to fend for herself? She was NOT DRIVING, and for that she has to be given credit.I don't condone the vandalism either: was she so frustrated that no one was at the dealership to help her out? I don't know, but really, all these judgements are out of line. I hope this was a wake up call for the young lady, and lucklily no one was injured or worse by her lack of good judgement.And all those who pass judgement, are you perfect ? Think about it and reflect on the things you did that you are not particularly proud of.....SABzG

Staff at retail sites greet my white haired wife and me with "Hi GUYS." Several years ago, media mouthpieces started referring to convicts, street mean people, etc. as " the gentleman(or lady) taken in to custody." While our manners and language have become more informal, I find it sad and amusing that people behaving badly are referred to as the more formal "gentlemen and ladies" instead of the more neutral "men and women." The woman about whom this article was written was not behaving like a lady.

I would find it tasteless to refer to the 22 year old as " this young guy".....she may have been behaving poorly, but even Prince Harry has been faulted for poor judgement. Do we now refer to him as a "guy"?

To clarify: I suggest the reference regarding the "young LADY" would be more precise if written as "young WOMAN." The words "lady" and "gentleman" are being diluted into meaninglessness.The Media makes common use of this linguistic error/choice.

Years ago, while walking with friends to my public school, we passed a private "catholic" school daily. One day, while minding our own business, a group of student from that school walked out the church doors and began flipping us the bird and yelling at us. We were across a large and busy boulevard from them. They got our attention with there screaming yells and we could see their arms and fingers up in the air. I was in the eighth grade at the time and was amused at the irony of these "catholic" students behaving in that manner. We ignored them and kept walking to our public school. That event taught me that anyone can "think" that they are better than you, but they might be wrong.

Linda Styles, so to be clear, "stupid, drunken trash" only comes in the public school variety? Clearly, that is a "stupid" statement because it's simply not true, unless of course you've deceived yourself into thinking it is, which makes you "stupid". So are you a product of public schools, or are you "stupid private school trash"?

Think about it; without Linda's comment there would be no discussions! Are we being played?

Yup. You've all been played. It's a troll. No one by the name of Lynda Styles as a resident of Diablo.
