we need to have classes in school about money. debt to income ratio. how to apply for loans. how to set up a 401k.
why do we not have classes about how to pay your bills or what to do if your stove catches on fire or if your toilet starts to flood or how to change a flat tire?
these are real life situations. everyone should have some understanding on how to handle them and it’s much more important than learning about imaginary numbers imo.
Not to be an asshole. But whenever I see this it drives me mental.
There was a class in highschool for every single one of those things. I realize not every school offers these classes, but they exist. You can take accounting, personal finance, electrical, auto, plumbing, food and nutrition or some kind of cooking class. Hell we even had a parenting class.
I think most high schools, in most cities offer at least a few of these. The options are there.
I blamed Melissa for a lot of my problems, I blamed her for my intimacy problems, my commitment issues. I blamed her for failing out of school, for wasting my money, for gaining all this weight. I made her out be an evil, vindictive, narcissistic cunt. I hated her with and loved her with every fiber of my being. I never understood how she felt until recently. I never understood how hard it was for her to leave until I had to do the same thing. I shamed her for what she did, and I didn’t even feel bad about it. Leaving Sarah was the hardest thing I’ve had to do, and I know she doesn’t believe me. Because I wouldn’t believe me, because I didn’t believe Melissa.
