I know you're a troll, but this reminds me of what a (former) friend of mine did.For people that didn't go to collage and doesn't have huge fucking loans to pay off, instead they went straight to work and got themself a house and car and family and all you got is huge depts and a wasted life.
4 years ago I decided to quit welding and go to college. At about the same time my friend decided he was going to move out of his parents basement and buy a house. He wasn't making any money and had no prospects for advancement at work. But he wanted to show all his friends, who had gone to college, that he was the smart one. He bought the house and a couple years later bought a new car (Chevy Cobalt :?) ... and lived off Ramen noodles and canned ravioli in a big empty house because he couldn't afford furniture.
A couple months ago, the idiot got himself fired (from the same job, at the same pay he had 4 years ago). Now he's trying to sell the house and stands to lose 20-30 grand on the whole deal because he could never afford to maintain the place. If it weren't for his parents, he would've been foreclosed on and had his car repo'd a month ago. Most of his friends have now graduated and are making 30 to 50 grand a year, have nice apartments or houses and newer cars. And he's in worse shape than he was in 4 years ago.
