Life of Riley: 10
Kate: "Riley, this is my little sister Dawn. She's an undergrad at Bedford U."
Dawn: "How ya doin'?"
Riley: "What are you studying?"
Dawn: "Does it matter?"
Dawn: "Even if by some bizarre quirk of fate I happen to get my degree before dying of poverty, I'll probably still wind up in an unrelated, go-nowhere job, flipping sizzling cow meat in my spare time in the vain hope of offsetting a fraction of my quintuple-digit student loans before shuffling off to an early, and probably stress-induced grave."
Riley: "Wow. Sociology or economics?"
Dawn: "I'm a double major."
