    That is really sad for your uncle, and sadly typical of many parents.

    I was just talking the other day to a fellow, who while proud of his recent college grad daughter in a professional field, was totally outraged that she had to do things like an on the job practicum without being paid for it, but had to pay credits to do it. Or that she still had to pay for the test and the license.

    Not having gone to college he didn’t get that just because someone earned a degree in something doesn’t mean they necessarily want to practice it and wouldn’t need to do the practicum, so it’s an elective, nor that the role of colleges/universities is to teach the groundwork you need, but they aren’t the government agency that makes you legal to do the work.

    True, sadly

    She still will be, don’t worry. There is a vast swath of folks who deride education and resent the “educated elite”

    For someone with your nick an interesting choice of ad hominems. I’m sorry you feel you have to tell people you are here. So here, I’ll engage to make you feel seen.

    So, to your point, was my comment wrong? If you scroll up, I was merely observing the clockwork appearance of the tiresome faction, even in a politics free week. It’s like watching the hour hand tick by on a clock- utterly predictable, and utterly boring.

    And apparently at least five of us you probably not know personally to speak for agree with me.

    See, you would be the kinda of classmate I’d like to meet up with again :) FB was great for reconnecting and catching up with the folks who were cool back then, and “grew up” too, for lack of a better term. And none of us attend the reunions. We just enjoy the pictures that get posted afterwards. But the clique is so click-y that they don’t bother to put up names despite requests, so who knows who all those bald headed/grey haired folks are? Lol. I do have the very life I hoped to have. No regrets and lots of things to be thankful for. Life is good, I hope the same for you!

    Yeah, my hs was pretty big, over 200 in my class and so fractured into cliques who never mingled that we never melded as a class. Even as we are all retiring, only a few folks from the elitest cliques still go. And they are the ones who still think HS was the pinnacle of their life. Not my experience.

    I went to the 25th and it was weird… people fawning all over me I never knew or who were outright hostile, now trying to act like we’ve been best buds since Kindergarten just because we marched across a stage together in the 70s.

    Really uncomfortable to keep smiling pleasantly, when inside I’m thinking “you obviously don’t remember the time you stole my lunch money, or you laughed at my thrift store clothes” rueful chuckle.

    Snort, when I read this strip, I thought to myself, “huh, zero political fodder here. I bet the criminal’s minions will still try to wedge something in.”

    I’ll add my own “zzzzzzzz”
