ITA. I didn't waitress but I'm still in a job that's way below what I studied for, still struggling to make ends meet, still looking at friends I graduated with 2.5 years ago living off their parents, not so much as waitressing, and it makes me angry.I have a lot of friends in NYC, and I live in Boston, so I can relate to how much of a struggle it is to make it on your own, in an expensive city, in your 20's as a post grad, in a crappy economy. It took me two years to find a job after graduation, but instead of living off Mommy and Daddy, I waitressed for those two years. I had a lot of friends that lived off their parents, and it annoyed me to no end how entitled some of them were. I actually like Hannah a lot, and like many of my friends, I think she just needs a little visit from the self awareness fairy.
A few others got great jobs after a year or two of living off their parents, because they had the time and resources to put into job hunting and unpaid internships. That annoys me merely on the basis that I'm jealous
Overall I think the series is pretty realistic, and I like that.
