😅 Laughter Turns Sour: College Plans & Family Drama 🎬

So, our protagonist is visiting his parents for Christmas with his wife, when his younger brother mentions he's planning to attend college in their city. 🌆🎓 At dinner, the brother casually brings up the idea of living with them to save money on room and board. Our protagonist laughs, thinking it's a joke, but the brother is dead serious. 😲🤯 This leads to an argument, with the brother getting upset and accusing him of adding 40k in debt to his college expenses. 😡💸 Our protagonist stands his ground, stating that he and his wife aren't interested in having roommates during their first year of marriage. 🚫👫 Dad chimes in, saying he understands the position but thinks the laughter was a bit harsh. 😕🤷‍♂️ Now, let's see what the internet thinks of this situation... 🌐🗣️
