She totally didn't appreciate my geology puns first thing this morning. I mean, come on. Rock on! was funny.
When you talk to people at a college billing office, you need to realize they have no clue what it means to pay for college out of pocket. So when I called to bitch about the huge difference from one bill to the next - caused by taking an online course vs a go-to course - and she told me there really wasn't a difference, she didn't realize $600 was a big difference to me. (I made the kid drop the damn course and take something else... which is why she now has an 8am Geology class.)
I still can't wrap my brain around why an online course would be $600 more than a go-to course. I mean, there's no overhead. It ought to be cheaper, right?
I so totally want to take my daughter's classes this semester. Well, except for Econ. But I would rock Geology. I already took Public Speaking, so that would be a breeze. Business Computing? Fuggetabowit. Business Communications? Puleeze. Okay, so I wouldn't want Algebra either, but I'm seriously jealous of the rest.
I went to Northern Michigan University. On the sunny shores of Lake Superior. Yes, it was cold. Yes, it was snowy. But I got used to it. Could I do it now? Oh hell no. I got used to it then, but that was 20 years ago.
Got anything random to add this morning?
