And that's the point. Uni is great if you're going to get a degree that earns you a living. Otherwise it just a load of debt...I went to uni, happily earning enough cash to spunk up a wall on frivolous shite. I just made sure to pick a degree in a field that was of actual use.
SWMBO is a team leader in a police control room been there 30 od years. She is the go to woman in ths room. She has a shift of 30 plus lots of whom have degrees. Perfectly capable but sit aside many who dont who are similary capable, just that the former have a shed load of debt for their trouble.
