“I do not want to work for the rest of my life,” she told her viewers in a second clip.
A lot of young people don't seem to be interested in the idea of working in a traditional sense. Ever since the pandemic people seem less keen on the conventional concept of a 9 to 5 job. To be honest, even people who love work occasionally dream of taking a break but hey, we’ve got to make a living. Would you skip working completely? A young TikToker received a ton of flak online after she said she’s just “too pretty” to bother with a job, reports The New York Post. Lucy Welcher divided the internet with her comments in an 8-second clip that went viral. “I do not want to work for the rest of my life,” she said in the short video. “Does it look like I want to get up at 6 a.m. every f**king day for the next 60 years?” “No! I’m too pretty for that!” she said, before taking a sip of her iced coffee.

Many comments came at the content creator calling her “entitled” and “lazy” for her view on working. One commenter said, “Try waking up at 4 a.m. every day working 60 hours a week.” “How about trying to be an adult instead of a privileged princess expecting life to be handed to you?” another shared. “Someone’s entitled,” a third chimed in. “I hope you get humbled girl, you need it. Looks have to nothing to do with working and it’s sad you have that mentality.” There were a handful of comments in agreement with her philosophy. “Preach it sissy!” one person said before a second supporter added, “Sending this to every employer I’ve ever had.” However a third reminded her why jobs are necessary, “Bestie we need to be able to pay for our coffees and other things tho.”
The young woman did not specify what she does or where she works but later clarified in the comments section of the video that her remarks were a “joke.” In fact, she said she frequently films herself getting ready for work for her followers. She also mentioned that she received a promotion recently. “I’m starting a new position at my job today, so instead of folding towels, I’m going to be on the desk,” she declared. "I'm very nervous to start on the desk because although I may look very beautiful, smart, and talented, I’m not actually smart at all,” the content creator joked.
