This slippery choosing beggar got to borrow a car once, and proceeded to draw the entitled assumption that that meant they could just use it again. There would appear to be a strong case of blind ignorance at play here.

Job Applicant Calls Out Company's Interview Process

This job applicant decided to call out a company's interview process after being rejected from getting the position. It would seem given the context here that the honest and critical review was completely reasonable.
