My 70 credits was plenty of college.
See....it's not so classy to brag about one's material possessions.
People that are upper middle class and up don't do that.

Full blown wealthy people do it all the time, it doesn't mean they're working class

Apparently there is no difference between you and a day laborer who shares an apartment with 8 people

Most wealthy people actually don't brag about being wealthy.

And some do, and it doesn't mean they're not wealthy.

Definitely a strange theory.

I have nothing against going to college, but I don't think that economic class is determined by education. My neighbor growing up was an electrician, and he never finished college. His wife didn't even work. Yet he made so much money that his family truly lived the middle class American dream, and his kids were pretty spoiled and got what they wanted. How the hell would he be in the same economic class as a day laborer who is one or two paychecks away from not being able to pay rent?
Okay, it seems you have not gone to college
