Today, I received my acceptance letter to one of the most prestigious universities in the US, as well as a nice scholarship. I was so proud of myself, I eagerly showed my dad, hoping he would shed a tear or two. His only words were, "Just get a job so you can get the hell out of my house." FML

Geez, what crawled up his butt and died? Does he normally show support OP or does he not? If he doesn't then maybe you should have figured he'd respond this way?

Be proud you did so well! Go celebrate with your friends instead! Many congratulations! :D

"Tough Love" means to treat someone harshly with the intent of helping them. It's not a generic excuse for behaving like an asshole and only thinking of yourself.

The expression you are looking for is "white trash parenting".

Does your house happen to be in a close proximity to one of the most prestigious universities in the US? If not, then I probably would have assumed that you would be forced to move out, job or no job.
