My parents made too much money for me to get anything other than a student loan from the taxpayers. It took ten years, but I repaid every dime. I was able to get a small grant from the Masons, whom my dad has been a long time member. I had a small scholarship that pretty much just covered my books and other supplies. A full time summer job was used to pay my rent for the year on day one and a part time job the rest of the year paid for my other living expenses, including beer.:lol:

I chose a trade school and received the 2 year Associates of Technology degree. I didn't want to be stuck at a high priced university for 4 or more years. I worked hard, because, guess what, I was paying for it. That is the other problem I have with a free college education for all. Some won't give a shit and just use it as an extra 4 years to party because it isn't costing them anything.

If someone has a personal financial investment in something, they will bust ass to achieve their goal. Others, not so much.

Same boat semo. Hell i even worked loading grocery trucks from 8 to 2 at night, sometimes later, while going to tech school. You can bet your ass every night i went to that job it was a reminder of what I dont want out of life. This was also done NOT living under my parents roof.

Once i got my field job. I paid about 700 a month to my student loan to get it GONE!!

Makes me sick of the mindset of lots of people in this day and age. Gimmee gimmee gimme. It's my right!!!

I had 2 jobs and went to college full time and every time I came home from breaks I picked up shifts at a restaurant. Started washing dishes then eventually learned to chef. Not a good chef like my brother. More of a "well, at least I probably won't food poison you" chef.

Okay, we figured it out.  College is too expensive because government interference allows unlimited spending on education.  Many kids don't take responsibility.  Xen is a bad cook.  OC has a reading comprehension problem.  Nothing more to say here.

Hey asshole, I'm an excellent cook compared to you mouth breathers.

Just, you know, not compared to real chefs like my bro.

I've cooked at 5 star restaurants, I've catered even. I can do it... but that shit's hard work. It's fucking too hot in those kitchens for a delicate flower like myself.

Does your brother still have his website where he sells the rubs?  I can't remember what it was called, but I used to order some from him.  Good stuff.

I don't think he still does the website. I was just talking to my dad and he was going to try and talk him into making us up a batch if he has time or barring that give us the recipe. I love that stuff. I've had a lot if bbq, not in arrowhead proportions, but still a lot. Some of the best rub I've ever had.

Yeah, he used a dehydrated honey in one of them.  That stuff was awesome.
