    What happened to (working a part time job) paying your way through college?
    What happened to starting an apprenticeship at lower wages?
    What happened at affording a home/vacation?

    Wherever you turn... people are entitled.

    My fav is that a friend's son said it was rude for a prospective employer not to call him back.....since he had already called once to inquire about a job.

    I'll give you no argument about the fact that there are plenty of entitled pieces of shit out there. But the "young" generation certainly doesn't hold a monopoly on these types. Not by a long shot. They learned it from someone after all - they sure didn't invent the participation trophy or grade-less class.

    Now, if you want to talk about the constantly offended generation...yeah, the youngsters have taken that to a whole new level.

    You can't pay your way through college working a $8 an hour job while attending a $50k a year college.

    Actually, you can......

    My best friend went to Ohio State in the early 90s. It cost him close to $200k to finish.
    He is a dentist now. He had a part time job working for me in the summer.

    I know it wasn't easy to cough up that kind of money (loans) but over time.....he paid it back.

    Over time? How long did it take him to pay it off?

    It's kinda relevant to the statement I made, that's why I was asking. But good for him. I have a few friends that have 6 figure debts and student loan payments that are equivalent to a mortgage, it's insane.

    College isn't for everyone. Military or Trade school can be a good option. I know military was great for me. Just a thought.
