Choices Made, Consequences Faced 😬

So, there you have it – a dad who offered to pay for his twin sons' college education, but with some strict conditions. One son, the partier, refused the deal and ended up in debt with a temp job offer. The other, the scholar, accepted the conditions, got a fancy Ivy League degree, and scored a job at Apple. It's a classic tale of choices and consequences, and it seems like the dad's rules might have been onto something. Let's see what the internet has to say about this family drama... 🍿
