'Totes over it!'- Twitter is tired of Yim Lo's school dropouts
Twitter is fed up with almost every second person approaching reality shows to confess about dropping out of school without their parents' knowledge.
Viewers realised much to their frustration that Dineo Ranaka's show Yim Lo, and many others like Big Secret, has seen more people confess about dropping out of school and spending the school fees on things their parents knew nothing about.
In last night's episode, Terror, confessed to his family that after "losing interest in school" he took the money they sent for fees and "invested" in a rapping career.
Although his family's reaction was surprisingly calm, most tweeps were not impressed.
Viewers tweeted that young people insist on breaking their parents' hearts and wasting their hard-earned money in the process.
Twitter expressed their feelings through memes:
Yazi nizofa guys! Your mothers are busy cleaning up after people in Scotland, sacrificing their lives to make a living to send you to school so you can have a decent life and you decide to chow school fees and be a musician #YimLo pic.twitter.com/MErX3QbWo3— Esther Moloi (@Estherscripts) February 6, 2018

We should pray for parents to find a balance between guiding their children and yet still help them maintain their independence. I've across a couple of stories of teenagers either committing suicide or coming close to it because of this issue. #Yimlo pic.twitter.com/xsxlCAdu9T— Simon Kubeka (@God_Is_Love_566) February 6, 2018
