60 Things We (aka our Parents) Don’t Pay $60,000 For

$60,000 is a lot of money. And we pay that four (in some cases five) times for an education from an accredited university. But sometimes, it seems like we deserve a little more. So, I crafted a list of things during Ethics class filled with things we should not pay all this money for. (FYI: forgot to number them when I started writing them down so no idea if its actually 60 things)

  • Connelly/Second Story sandwiches costing more then a meal
  • Being blackmailed to buy 7 apples, a yogurt, some soup or a bunch of cookies when you buy late night at Connelly
