My 22 year old lives with me. Pays no rent, buys no groceries, does not help out in any financial way. He has been coming home stoned and munching every dang thing in the house - and NOW he's started getting up in the middle of the night and when I get up in the morning I find that my computer's internet history has been deleted. I'm losing all sorts of crap - like my CM username and password, hotmail username - I mean all that is minor but it's aggravating in that this is MY house and MY computer.... I've been looking for a job in another city and sometimes I rely on my internet history to go back to jobsites, etc that I visited days before, or to recall a job I applied for. Yeah, I could bookmark every freaking site I visit - but that just clutters up my bookmarks. Point is - this is my laptop, I bought it, I pay for the internet and I'm sick of being "put out" because he wants to hide something. What to do??

The library lets him use their computer for free so he needs to hang out there.

It sounds like the computer history is your last straw, but I think the reall issues are these: My 22 year old lives with me. Pays no rent, buys no groceries, does not help out in any financial way. He has been coming home stoned and munching every dang thing in the house
I agree with the other ladies. It is time for him to act like an adult. I would definitely give him a deadline for finding a job and finding his own place. I wouldn't even give him the option of staying and cleaning up his act because I think he needs to face reallity all by himself without a safety net. Until he moves out I would either put a password on the computer or keep it in your room at night. I know (ok I assume since I haven't had to do it) it's not easy kicking your own child out, but really it is for his own good. GL!
