You pay for school and your kid drops out which I find sad really, I mean all this time you've said value in education is about paying for it but that's certainly not proven by your own experiences bordwithyou.

Shhhh...that's a secret. I guess you would be bitter if one kid drops out and the other one is going for a blue collar job.

Where in heaven's name do you come up with this stuff?  Although, there is nothing wrong with a blue collar job.  Doesn't your husband have one? Sometimes, anyway?

  By the way, Jambles, I never said "value in education is about paying for it."   That would be you, confused again.  Or perhaps still.  Are you ever NOT confused?

A little birdy told me ;)

I would hope not if your own child is training to have one. Sheesh...

Sometimes? lol. What does that mean? Please do tell. Bawhahhaaa....

What's wrong with blue collar work, anyway?

I know some brilliant people who prefer to work with their hands.

Have you never read Zen and the Art of Motorcyle Maintenance?

Your information may be faulty.  The kid already has a blue collar job.  He wants to work summers and part time during college, and make more than he would make as a shift supervisor at McDonald's.   He fulfilled all high school graduation requirements when he was sixteen and didn't want to go straight to college, so he did an automotive technology course in adult ed last year along with a few AP courses in high school.  Is that what your birdie told you?

Well, if that is not what your birdie told you, your birdie is lying or confused.  Or perhaps you are confused about what you heard.
