same. I couldn't afford to go to community college until I worked for over a year waiting tables and saving money. Now I go to a "good" school but on full-scholarship. It pisses off reverse snobs.


I will admit I have a reverse snobbery side. It's with silver spoon types, I just assume they take everything for granted that most people don't have the luxury to take for granted. They don't even know why they went to college and half of them develop a drug or drinking problem because that is the only excitement they can find since everything came easily to them and why would someone be motivated to make a living at a boring job when mommy and daddy are happy to support you?


This describes a handful of people I grew up with.
