Today, I was worried because it's July and I still haven't found a summer job, despite applying to 50 places. It was fine, because I remembered my savings account. I told my parents. Instead of being relieved, they said they're going to take the money from me for being lazy, and using it for my tuition, despite promising to pay for it. FML

Or go into a trade, not have to pay for college, make good money right away, and have a marketable skill for decades to come, instead of simply for the next few years before needing more education.

Oh, and have a MUCH higher chance of owning your own business within 10 years.

I looked into plumbing as an example. You have to do four years of indentured servitude before you can get your license (at least in Arizona.) The trades are paying less and less these days.

Hey, at least they’re paying for it somehow. My dad promised to pay for my college, then only paid $150 and didn’t tell me he wasn’t going to pay the remaining $5,000. I didn’t find out until finals week, when the school threatened to kick me out, and I had to get an emergency loan.
