Today, I discovered that when my parents offered to help me pay for college, what they really meant is they would get the forms for me to apply for student loans. FML

I call this a moment of misscommunication.

When you offer to help pay for something it means you'll contribute some actual money to things. Like may be buying books. It also said that they OFFERED. She did not ASK them to. So, it's not her fault to expect that they give her money for certain things. I know when my children go to college I'll expect them to get a part time job, but I'd also HELP them pay for certain things.

So, FYL for the fact your parents couldn't be clear on what they meant.

Wow..FYL. It's one thing if your parents promised/said they'd help. I don't think it's fair to call the OP a spoiled brat. Kinda a shocker when someone offers something BIG and then backs out ><.
*Sigh* Why can't people be upfront about these things.
