This Is Why We’re In A Recession, Part 33

| Working | September 18, 2014

(I work in a warehouse with my boss and a few other employees. My boss has been wealthy her entire life. I am working when she starts to chat me up about college.)

Boss: “I don’t understand why you’re going to [Local College] instead of one two hours away. It’s a life experience.”

Me: “Oh, yes, I know. I’s just much cheaper for me to live at home and go to [Local College] until I graduate. I don’t want to be in debt like most college students.”

(My boss gives me a dumbfounded look.)

Boss: “Why?”

Me: “…why?”

Boss: “Why don’t you want to be in debt?”

Me: “…”

Boss: “Debt is the American way. I was $38,000 in debt when I graduated, and I paid it off just fine. It was stupid of you to go to [Local College].”
