5. Everyone in Korea. Ugh, Mondays are the worst when your country faces the imminent threat of war. it's so hard to come back from the weekend, especially if the weather's crappy or your country's mortal enemy has declared a decades long armistice invalid. Makes you just want to crawl into bed in your bunker deep, deep underground where nothing can hurt you. Sigh. Coffee it is.
4. Sheryl Sandberg. The COO of Facebook has offended some and ignited yet another fierce battle in the "mommy wars" after a TED talk in which she specifically described her hope that she would not offend anyone or start another battle in the mommy wars. Sandberg's TED talk brought up many of the issues in her new book, Lean In, such as the ways women hold back in the workplace and need to be more assertive and blah blah blah. All we heard was: it's women's fault they aren't moving up the corporate ladder. Obviously, this sentiment is completely offensive to stay-at-home moms, women who work part-time, women who work full-time but aren't as rich as Sandberg, and most of all, women of color.
