$3000 is the difference between living at home and going to a school my parents want me to AND living with friends and going to a community college until i can transfer to a nice university. my dad has worked hard his whole life to be able to live very nicely. is $3000 really that much? considering his only argument is he doesnt want me to waste anymore of his money for me to fail. (i know, i suck, but i promise u GC i'm motivated now) im just not sure how to respond to that, like he is a franchisee owner of 5 stores that have been relatively unaffected by the recession, but saying "its not a lot of money, get real" would be rude and i understand the principle of what he is saying(i.e. wasting money). so his main reason for wanting me to stay home (and thus having zero fun, what kind of punishment is that?) is it might be more money wasted. i know this reason is bullshit but i dont know how to tackle the situation. inb4 im spoiled, i suck, i should move out, get a job, etc. literally i understand this already.
