Well okay I exaggerate a bit with the title, but i reckon the parents were saying that in their quiet thoughts about their seemingly lazy son.

He's thirty years old and moved back eight years earlier after losing his job ( no idea what the job was ). Fair enough I did the same at a slightly younger age. I paid rent and helped a lot around the place.

Even cooked quite a few meals . This guy doesn't pay rent or do housework he basically bludges. On that note alone he aught to be phyiscally evicted, imo.

 

Given today's ratshit economy lots of people do live in the parents home. Personally, I couldn't wait to get out again ;)

I started leaving home at around  I4 guess, not because I don't love my family, I do, immensely, but I needed to go see the world, a hunger that had been growing for a while.

 

I don't really understand guys like this, it seems they don't really want to grow up, but there are a lot of them around these days.

 

In my family we were all out before 18, with frequent visits, but to give our parents back their space - after raising five kids I think they deserved it, although without kids I suspect they would not have lasted the 56 year marriage until dad died that they had.

 

Other than family visits, sometimes a few days, I've never been back to live, frankly my mother would drive me nuts anyway :)

 

Cheers

hahahahahahaha

 

dad died when i had just turned 17, a week before matric exams

 

i managed to still do well enough to get into medicine, and was about half way through my 4th year (so aged 20), when i got the nudge - there was an interstate wedding, and when i arrived a day after mum to the celebrations, she announced she'd bought a unit there in melbourne (where she had lived before) and i'd have to find somewhere to live in adelaide

 

moved into a student share house and never looked back, not that i had any option :) , and lived on tertiary assistance for the last part of the six year course and then self funded in my first year of being a doctor - till the then still students who had replaced the original other students who'd graduated and moved on told me i wasn't home enough to be part of their clan

 

 

so i then lived briefly in the hospital at the start of my first "resident" year (appropriate i guess, but socially dismal) before i rented my own "flat" which was a beautiful bachelor pad that was really a studio apartment subdivided from a grand old adelaide house - 12 foot ceilings and open fireplace... then i ran out of job options in adelaide (rather a conservative and closed medical community for a young lair like me) and eventually applied for royal north shore, and ran away to sydney

 

at which stage mum vacated melbourne and got a unit in adelaide - to be nearer my sister as she got older i guess... or maybe because i wasn't still there :)

 

 

sydney has been home since 1984, and we've lived in the same house near the beach for just over quarter of a century now

 

ms 24 is making noises about possible cohabitation with her boyfriend, but isn't rushing to leave, and mr 15 is here for a while yet

 

 

but i can't imagine needing (or wanting) to force them out, although ms 24 was a bit horrified at being required to pay board - which doesn't cover her expenses, but was more to prove the concept of how money works

 

 

the guy in syracuse appears to have delusions of privilege...

"... ms 24 was a bit horrified at being required to pay board - which doesn't cover her expenses, but was more to prove the concept of how money works ..."

 

The underlined, imo, is part of gaining experience whilst growing up with adults covering most of the young ones needs. Paying board and doing your own laundry and at least helping with other household goings on is a healthy way to understand

how to keep yourself fed and healthy in order to make your own way in the world. - I staid living at home as a border after gaining work again for about six months. My working week with travel hours included meant I was at home to eat sleep and do laundry.

So I upped my rent to cover lack of house duties, but this still enabled me to save for future departure.

 

What I can't fathom is why this 30 year old believes he has a right to keep living off and in his parents house. Somehow, it appears he thinks his parents are there for his benefit.

Problem with the modern world is that it's full of self-appointed "have nots" who are also endowed with an enormously inflated sense of entitlement.

I confess to being interested in seeing more about this person. The tiny bit in the link shows him physically capable, and imo, carrying a thick skin to boot. His father looks really unimpressed and the mother sort of stoic of expression.

It's almost too set up... like a show perhaps.

These Playstation kids see shows like Jersey Shore with it's disfunctional, noncontributing layabouts and aspire to what they see.

By looking into it more, you just play into their hands.  Photos in these stories are often orchestrated but by what you describe they probably didn't have to act too hard.

Rather extreme case I guess. Then you're young and really wanted to move out ... you're paying for someone else's overblown mortgage payments or don't have means to pay for 500K home either. Then the banks have you in financial vice if you take out a home loan.
