Somehow I picked a worse major than psychology. How is that even possible? Painters get paid more than writers? Who paints!?

You know you made a bad life decision when the Reverend Lovejoy’s of the world are driving Benz’s and you’re looking up bus schedules. This is precisely the reason why I’ll tell my kids to never go to college. It’s a straight-up scam at this point. If somehow my kid’s kicking/long snapping career doesn’t pan out and he wants to fuck & party he can get an apartment off campus at the school of his choosing and bang out freshman chicks for five years while earning an online degree paid for by his Chinese IT company. Hell he can even go on spring break. But $50-100k+ on a Psychology degree? Or education? Or communications? That’s sucker debt. A plan to make you an indentured servant to the government. Can’t have the offspring making the same mistakes daddy made.
