Sounds easy but seems to be hard for lots of people.
Do the shitty chores whenever possible. sure the old man can take out garbage or paint the fence and Mom can do endless dishes...but... they are getting older and muscles and bones begin to ache occasionally. Free time seems like a dream because of endless home responsibilities.
Help them out and free up some time for them. Do the heavy lifting and bending to show your appreciation of the fact that they are spending part of their retirement money on keeping you fed and sheltered.
For some it's part of the growing up transition as they move from child to adult.
I certainly try.

Or at least until we lose our house.



The Rev
I had to take a couple days to respond to this so I wouldn't just dump a bunch of anger on this.



But anyway now, that shit is abhorrent. You guys are hard on money as it is and all this fucking guy wants to do is pretend he's 15?

Clearly there's some psychological co-dependence thing going on with mommy and her little baby boy, which is tricky shit I would have no idea how to deal with other than to walk away from it. But I know you don't want to do that so... I don't know..

Good luck you poor young fuckers...your world is going to be a whole lot different than mine was.


Way back when I was growing up in the 80's there were always one or two crotchety old fucks who would wearily look off into the distance for a second and then look you right in the eye and tell you the exact same thing...


Fuckin' time travelers...

Come back to warn us of where it all ends up, we should have listened to those guys.

Rev, does your son pay rent? Maybe that could be one of many steps in the right direction?

I was thinking about this as I was waking up, that Vancouver is a rich neighborhood in China.
