  • That's my Sister! She lives off of my parents. I think its sad, because she's just wasting her life away in their backroom. I feel pretty negatively about it actually. it really pisses me off. my parents are always on the verge of not being able to make their bills, and she's never paid rent. She has 8 years of education, doing what I dont know, but she should be able to parlay that into some sort of career to at least pull her own weight. They recently put tires on her truck.... it pisses me off.

  • That's a big problem. Unless they're taking care of an elderly parent or grandparent or preforming some other kind of caretaker duty I don't understand how this could happen. How do you they eat? How pays for their clothes? I don't know maybe i'm just a different kind of person than those like this but I couldn't live be that dependent on someone else.

  • I know in some cultures that is ALMOST normal, but in our culture, right off hand I would think it's laziness, or that maybe there is something mentally or physically wrong with them where they just can't live on their own (but I would only even entertain that notion if it was someone I did not know/knew nothing about kwim?)

  • WOW!!!! I was on my own at 17--only home twice. Once to get out of an abusive relationship and the second time I went home to help my parents be able to keep their home by paying rent. If at 29 he can't get it together then I wouldn't want him.
