Would that law school was affordable so that all one had to do was sell off childhood memories. Alas, stories like this one are not about students piecing together law school tuition in creative and interesting ways. Instead, this is another story about a law school graduate who learned, too late, that getting a law degree doesn’t have anything to do with getting a job that allows you to afford the degree.

It’s funny, collecting toy cars is a harmless hobby. Collecting post-graduate degrees is the dangerous perversion…

Here’s the eBay description for an unnamed law graduate whose Hot Wheels live in Ohio:

I am selling my collection of die cast cars to pay for my student loans and achieve my dreams. My loans greatly exceed this price, but this would definitely help.

I believe education is the driving factor for a successful, purposeful and meaningful society. I received a bachelor’s degree in business management and a JD/MBA – Finance dual degree. Currently, I am unable to find a job that would allow me to pay off my loans in a meaningful time. I have set high goals for myself and believe my actions/endeavors have the potential to change our country. If I am ever going to be able to pursue my dreams both, with a family and as an activist, I need to overcome this crippling debt.

If you would like to hear more about my plans for the future, feel free to contact me. Thank you for taking the time to look at my page.

Do you remember the ABA president who waxed poetic about how he sold his car to pay for law school? Well, this guy is trying to sell 240 cars, and it still won’t be enough.

There’s so much to be sad about in this description:

  • “My loans greatly exceed this price, but this would definitely help.” = I’m one step away from selling my semen and plasma.
  • “I believe education is the driving factor for a successful, purposeful and meaningful society.” = This is what I tell myself while crying myself to sleep at night.
  • “I received a bachelor’s degree in business management and a JD/MBA – Finance dual degree.” = I don’t read Above the Law.
  • “Currently, I am unable to find a job that would allow me to pay off my loans in a meaningful time.” = Joke’s on you Starbucks, I wouldn’t have wanted the job even if you didn’t reject my application.
  • “I have set high goals for myself and believe my actions/endeavors have the potential to change our country.” = I AM A SPECIAL SNOWFLAKE.
  • “If I am ever going to be able to pursue my dreams both, with a family and as an activist, I need to overcome this crippling debt.” = No, getting a degree in “business management” does not require basic knowledge of “math.”
  • “If you would like to hear more about my plans for the future, feel free to contact me.” = If you have a job for me, you can have my Hot Wheels for free.

The cars look sweet. If you have $8,000 burning a hole in your pocket, this man’s bad choices can turn into your vintage collection of toys. Capitalism, baby!
