Well, she inherited the business, so techinically she really is a business owner. If you look at her pic you can understand why this poor person has some advice for her - eat less, exercise more.

Basically it's this:

When do you tell adults to stop asking for money?

My daughter and I just had this conversation. Seems one of her girlfriends got into an arguement with her mother because she wouldn't give her money she asked for. This is a grown adult daughter. At what point do you tell adults to stop asking for money and freebies and go and put in some Ot at work or a second job or whatever?

Why are people offended when we tell them to go work for something? We are a nation of fucking beggars?

Gina Rinehart is not the person to tell anybody to work more, or even at all. She's an heiress.

And having said that, I'm the first person to admit I need to drink less and work more. But she has no right to tell me that.

"There is no monopoly on becoming a millionaire," she writes. "If you're jealous of those with more money, don't just sit there and complain. Do something to make more money yourself - spend less time drinking, or smoking and socializing and more time working."

I guess if you listen to hughb you tell your PARENTS to get off their duffs and work more and drink less.

And for the most part she's right. Even if she shouldn't be saying so herself.

On the flip side, if she wants you to sleep with her, you had better drink a hell of a lot more first. And even more afterwards.
