Student Blows $90K College Fund Then Blames Parents When She Can't Pay For School

ME ME ME ME ME ME!

College student blows $90,000 then blames parents for not teaching her how to budget money. Plus, they have a big fat retirement fund they could give her, but they won't! Mean parents!

Atlanta radio show "The Bert Show" had a guest on this week who has managed to incite the rage of just about every millennial in the state of Georgia (and beyond, the show is syndicated in 11 states).

The woman, a 22-year-old college junior named Kim, who did not give her last name on air and was allowed to use a voice disguiser to even further shield her identity, came to the three hosts with a confession: in just short three years she had managed to blow through a $90,000 college fund left to her by her grandparents. Kim has one year left of school and no way to cover her remaining $20,000 tuition balance. [...]

"Years ago my grandparents set up a college fund for me, which was amazing, and I haven't been very good with my budget for school. The first payment for my senior year just arrived and I don’t have the money basically. I've just been avoiding it. I knew the bill was coming."

"I used it to budget for school clothes and college break money. I probably should have not done that. I took a trip to Europe. The Europe thing I thought was part of my education and that's how I tried to justify that."

"Maybe [my parents] should have taught me to budget or something. They never sat me down and had a real serious talk about it."

She should go into politics. She will be a very successful Democratic.
