I just found out that my niece has decided to drop out of high school at the ripe old age of 17. She will be leaving with one-and-a-half years to go. Apparently going to class for free is just too much work for her and she'd rather grow up and get a full time job at Circuit City or, better yet, McDonald's. The best part is, she doesn't even have her driver's license yet.
I love how much teenagers think things through. I'm sure this is a decision she won't regret. I mean, who wants to waste their time in high school. After all, it's not like the 35+ years people spend working is long enough. I would want to tack on a few extra years of working in a sucky job for as long as possible, because nobody else will hire me because I don't even have my GED. Yes. That sounds like fun.
Where can I sign up?
