^ ditto blista, I went to a scummy comp and I've done alright for myself. The people I know who went to private school are invariably drug dealers/abusers, young parents, permanent backpackers and waiters. Nowt wrong with that of course, but it hardly meets the lawyer/doctor/vet/architect ambitions that I know their parents had for many of them!
Not really strange, its classic rebelion, being forced into nasty nasty private schools, feeling completely rejected, is likely to fuck a persons perspective also.
I know someone who went to private school, I dont know what he does now, but he was dealing last timei saw him.
Also, someone with a wealth parents, is likely to have had everything they wanted, bought for them, so one day mummy and daddy said no
and, having never worked or achived anything through taking everything for granted, found themself... fucked! and ended up taking bins out.
having shitty football shoes has given me a much better apreciation for more important things in life than fickle Nike sports wear. Some parents say "I want to buy my kids all the things i never had"
Fuck that, I like the way i turned out, so im not gonna buy my kids ANYTHING.
