Trigger warning. Safe space. These recent inventions are now the norm at many colleges and universities across America.

But in the video below, Olivia Legaspi, a student at Haverford College, reveals that trigger warnings and safe spaces are, well, ridiculous. And harmful. How did she learn this? By working at McDonald’s, where she saw that a server’s feelings are irrelevant, while the customer’s feelings are paramount; that there are no “trigger warnings” when customers are rude, and no “safe spaces” where employees can hide while they’re on the clock.

While that truth may send some scurrying for their “safe spaces,” the irony, as Legaspi, is that only by learning to put others’ needs first do we mature and gain the ability to handle life’s challenges.

Watch the video and find out why many of life’s most valuable lessons aren’t learned in college, but at work.
