Oops, I Did it Again!

A purloined line from an otherwise forgettable song by Brittney Spears. 

Son Unit informs me he’s missed the deadline for telling his school he’ll will not be availing himself of the school housing (dorm) for the upcoming academic year and will be stuck again with his roommate, who he finds annoying now, for yet another year.

Besides the prospect of spending yet another year with a person he has come to dislike, Son Unit could also be on the hook for $$$$  for breaking a rental contract early as well as pissing off  the friend who asked if he wanted to share off-campus housing with. 

Its not that this is new for him; am sure I reminded him of this earlier was well.  And this is a repeat of the chance he lost this year to spend a year studying @ Ritsumeikan in Kyoto;  he applied only at the very last minute and told shortly afterwards the program’s slots had been filled prior to the deadline.

I would have thought that experience and that he’s now in his 20’s would have given him some smarts, but it hasn’t.  And this sort of shit is something that will come back to bite him in the ass  in his work career, his marriage-whenever that will be- in short it will mess up his life.

Some people never learn I guess.

    Yep, we can only guide them in the right direction… ultimately they’re on their own path.
