Bert Show Listener Kim’s in college, but she’s got a problem: her grandparents gave her enough money for all four years…but she hasn’t been entirely responsible with her funds, and now she’s short some money for her senior year. And by short, we mean she needs $10,000 to cover the first semester…and that would still leave her with ZERO dollars for the second semester.
And now she needs to tell her parents.
Update: Ok, so maybe dad just laughed in her face…but there’s a solution, right?
But seriously, this is getting a little absurd at this point. Since when is getting a job just SOOOO embarrassing?
Ok, some good news: Kim’s turning a corner. Kind of. We think.
Maybe we spoke too soon.
UPDATE: We Check Back In
It’s been a couple of weeks, so we check back in with Kim to see what’s new. The good news? She got a job. The bad news? Her parents bailed her out. BUT JUST HEAR HER OUT, YOU GUYS.
And Bert doesn’t think she’ll hold down her job AT ALL…but she just threw a MAJOR curveball.
The word of the day is officially #malarkey. Your challenge: use it in a sentence. Ex.: this whole paying back a loan nonsense is malarkey.
