Your college kid doesn't miss you; he/she just needs money ...

  1. You get a random phone call, in the middle of the day, especially when you're the one who always initiates the calls to make sure they are still alive
  2. You get the 1st text, of a series, starting with "I love you soooooo much" .....
  3. Pictures of the empty fridge (even though you can see the food on the kitchen counter)
  4. You get tagged, on one of their FB post (even though they never accepted your friend request), of their friends going out to eat but your child can't go. Your child's comment: Wish I could join them but no $$ :(
