I think that some of us tend to take for granted the fact that our parents fund our college tuition. It is unfortunately very easy to overlook how lucky we are. I’ll admit that I throw the occasional bitch fit about the fact that I have to dish out my own money on a night out in a college town with 75 cent specials and an influx of horny dudes to manipulate. Regardless, I’d like to think that the majority of us internally revere our parents’ generosity, at least enough to help them avoid a shitty nursing home and instead toss them a spare bedroom when they’re completely senile and starting to push it.
One college student out of Atlanta, Georgia, has recently come under fire after telling her story to a local radio show, and basically proving that you are actually a total saint (at least in comparison). Kim, a 22-year-old who was blessed with a whopping $90,000 college fund, blew the entire load on clothes and a trip to Europe.
But wait, it gets so much worse. Kim, who decided not to disclose her last name, is actually blaming her parents for the whole situation. She claims that her parents should have “taught her how to budget, or something,” which is strange, because I think that her parents should “punch her in her stupid fucking face, or something.”
The radio hosts suggested that Kim seek loans from her parents. She checked back in to the show a few days later, completely flabbergasted that her parents weren’t keen on the idea of loaning her money that she would then pay back without interest. I can’t even fathom why she thought they would trust her in financial matters. Bitch has the world’s worst track record, and probably the world’s best closet.
Eventually Kim’s parents agreed to loan her the money, on the grounds that she has to–gasp–get a job. She told the radio show, “I just want to say that I know they’re trying to teach me a lesson and blah blah blah and character building but, that I hope they realize — that this could have such a negative effect on my grades and as a person. I won’t be focused on my studies.”
Fucking brat. .
