Yes! This is another instance where the "kids these days" and "when I was your age"'s drive me crazy. It's completely unfair to blame 'lazy kids'.
In the early 80s (and before), you could pay for a full year of tuition at a major university by working about 30 hours a week at minimum wage, for about 12 weeks a summer. 35 years later, the same student would have to work 37 hours a week YEAR 'ROUND to afford the same.

All these failed freebie events just crack me up.
It also cracks me up how long people spend trying to make it work, and how mad they get when it doesn't.
I looooove that most of my kids' friends' parents are like-minded. But it is hard to have rules when it not only *seems* like everyone else is allowed...but pretty much everyone else is allowed.
Watch all the way through.
