people got problems...

*once upon a time i knew a guy who worked at the YSL boutique on 57th Street...
the following is from a story he told a group of us... 
some girl was in the store looking at lipsticks...
they cost more than she thought they should so she said something like...
people be paying that for a lipstick?
people got problems!
now...whenever i see someone being ridiculous in any way...
i just think to myself...
