The only chord you struck was that your parents have wasted a large amount of money in hopes that you would learn the ability of critical thought. For instance, you said, "The option your (sic) advocating..." I did not advocate any option, and if I did, it would have been "you are" or "you're" not "your." The rest of your twaddle is just that so not worth further comment. The demonstrative advice you give of "living within my means" is ludicrous since you are quite clear it is within the means of your parents that you are living.
couldn't have said it better... I've never gone into debt either (i'm 24). My grandfather bought a car for me, and pays for my college, but I don't go around looking down on people who are in debt because they aren't lucky pieces of crap like myself. I agree that living within your means is important whenever possible. However, in many cases that just isn't practical. Be grateful that your parents have been so kind to you, and that they have the means to do so. Thinking that you are somehow better than others because of this fact is absolutely ridiculous. I'm sure that if most of the men on this forum asked for help from their parents, their parents would help them whether they had the means to help or not. Many probably realize that their parents have their own things to worry about so they do their best to live their lives on their own hard earned dime.
