Today, it's the third week of my dad's midlife crisis. So far he's blown half my college fund pimping out his piece of shit car, keeps texting me meme pictures, and keeps yelling "Savage!" and "Recked!" any time my mom makes a joke at anyone's expense. FML

To be fair, in a lot of places it's expected for parents to help their kids with school (especially if you live somewhere where school is extremely expensive). A parent doesn't HAVE to, but if they tell their kids "we'll help you out, don't worry," and their kids take that into account while making their own savings (maybe paying for things, like a certain car, that they wouldn't have if they had thought it was out of their budget), it makes it really hard for them to jump back from such a set back. I've been saving up for school since before the age of 10, but that's because I was aware that my parents would not be paying for my education. If there was a legitimate reason, I'd understand, but a midlife crisis? And there are so many other potential reasons this could be messed up.
