A 22-year-old college junior named Kim is making people scratch their heads.
Appearing on "The Bert Show," an Atlanta radio show, in July, Kim, who did not provide her last name and used auto-tune to disguise her voice, said that she had been given a $90,000 college fund by her grandparents, but had spent most of the money before her senior year.
The college junior says she used some of the cash to pay for three years of tuition, but she also copped to buying school clothes and a trip to Europe.
"The first payment for my senior year just arrived, and I don't have the money, basically," she said on the radio show. "I've just been avoiding it. I knew the bill was coming."
Kim told the radio station that she is shy $20,000 to cover the tuition bill for her final year of school.
Kim's appearance on "The Bert Show," and the strong reaction she got from callers, went viral and inspired a lengthy Reddit thread.
