Take out a loan.
So you DO need your old man…
There goes that whole independent baloney
Ah, yes—those were the good old days.
I heard nada, nothing…see you at Christmas.
Doesn’t Rick know how to make sandwiches himself? Joanie isn’t June Cleaver, y’know!!
My foot locker would not have fit on the bus. But I did use the bus for the holiday breaks with that change in Syracuse.
Jeff, you’ve definitely crossed a line here: you’re behaving horribly and you expect someone you claim to despise to act maturely and generously.
Nice set-up and take-down, there dad.
My nephew, when he was in college, told me about getting “FREE” WiFi. Then I mentioned that the “FREE” WiFi was costing his father $20,000!!!
I’da handed him a $2 off Stoffers Family size coupon & booted him to the curb
And reality intrudes on this little fantasy…

You can pay him back after you get that job selling fries

Kid working on a masters degree in manipulation. Don’t look at me I’m shy.

University Education was free in my day, but so were 60% marginal tax rates. It was a fair trade for those who made money from their learnings.And beneficial to society for those who applied their skills in lower paying jobs that met areas of need.
Tax rates are lower now, and there are subsidised fees for university training. But repayments are tied to income and the debt is only indexed to inflation.
