and this whole idea of "don't use abstractions if you don't know how to use the layers underneath"

literally what the fuck

isn't the point of that to make it easier, more accessible?

what are you gonna do next, tell someone "you shouldn't be writing print("hello world") in python if you can't write it in assembly"?

I couldn't open a checking account with Chase. I tried online, got flagged, then went in person with my social security card, non-driver's ID, and name change documentation, and still got turned down.
I couldn't buy my current cell phone through the usual channels at my phone company. I got flagged, even though I was trying to outright buy it instead of getting it on lease. I had to argue with people all day and go to two different stores to buy it.
Just now, I couldn't create an online account for a new bank account I went in person to open. I couldn't be verified and now I have to call customer service.
