The Daily Cardinal Est. 1892
Thursday, June 13, 2024

Hey Morgan! My parents are really bugging me to get a job next semester, but it seems like too much work with all the classes I’m taking. What do I do to get them off my back?

Find "experience" and make it sound important.

All articles featured in The Beet are creative, satirical and/or entirely fictional pieces. They are fully intended as such and should not be taken seriously as news.

Listen — I understand the struggle. I’m not built to work either. But if you want to keep living off daddy’s dime, you’ve got to do something that’s “more valuable” than some minimum wage job. That being experience. 

Whether you have plans to further your education after undergrad or go straight to work, everyone needs some leg up. You just need to find some B.S. internship or work study — or writing a column for the better school newspaper. If you can make it sound important (and time wasting) to your parents, their sense of pride will overcome any desire for you to get a job. 

Just remember who to thank (financially) when your parents’ check cashes. 

Hope this helps!
