Not Going to Kiss your 21YO Kid's Behind - Admitted Rant
On the Never-ending Story of “you hate my kid”, you need to drop it. I’ve said this before. This will be the last time.
I’m sure SS21I'm is brilliant.
I’m sure he works his ass off at school and makes great grades (not that I’ve been privileged to see them despite my contribution to paying almost all of his tuition).
I’m sure he’s going to graduate and make 100K/year (BTW, how’s that summer job making $30/h that I lined up trying to help him out work out as it’s already May? Ooops, I forgot... he he had to "think about it")
You went to college with little/no help.
Your brother went to college with little/no help.
I went to college with little/no help.
I’m NEVER going to throw a ticker tape parade for SS21 until he achieves something significant particularly given he had a lot more help than anyone in your family or mine to get through school.
Oh, wait. He’s graduating a year early, right? Ooops. Just kidding. That would be 6 days from now on the 20th. He’s skipping his own commencement to go on your hike, right? RIGHT.
Quit coming down my street on this shit, DH. SS21 and I get along just fine. When he does something extraordinary I will reply in kind. You can kiss his ass all you want in the meantime.
