I think it really depends on how often this happens. If he's constantly ignoring responsibilities and playing video games all day then yeah, that's bad. But if he just occasionally enjoys a day off by playing games, there's nothing wrong with that.

Yeah but his dad lives under OP's roof and just refuses to stop laying around and go get a job. Pretty sure that's what's going on here, I FEEL it.

#5 There is literally nothing in the post that indicates it's OP's home... They can be splitting the rent evenly. And I don't know if you've heard of a "Day off" but people have those. Some even have 2 days off from work. You can "feel it" all you want man but just because he's a middle aged man playing a video game doesn't mean you have to paint that bad of an image for him.

God damn, how uptight are you, #11? If you want to get that pissy, at least recognize my comment's a joke. I guess I should go make "hurr hurr pussyyyyy" jokes on cat stories instead, they seem to be popular.

I so doubt that. At 18 OP is still technically in debt for everything up till the day they received their first paycheck, At 18 OP is welcome to move out and say FU to their parents if they want. What OP doesn't have the right to is to go online and complain they are living at home and life is tough because they have job and not get called out on it.

Um how do you know the OP is in debt? Just because he's 18, doesn't mean he owes anything, I didn't have any debt at that age. Unless you are referring to him being in debt to his father/parents because they raised and paid for him. Which in that case you're wrong, becoming a parent means you're obligated to pay for and raise that child until they're of age. A child isn't in debt and doesn't owe their parents ANYTHING just because they cared for them, that's literally their job as a parent, and

#1 That's not necessarily true. My half uncle has 2 children and has never had a job in his life. Yes, never. He's 47 and makes his wife (he's had 2) pay for everything and work while he stays at home playing video games. You may be thinking, "he takes care of his kids though right?" Wrong again. After he divorced his first wife he never paid a dime in child support and with this kid he drops it off at a daycare because he wants to play video games not take care of a screaming child. H

#23, your name is Ella. Unless I can't read I am pretty sure the online name/alias or whatever people like to call it, is "Ellabellaboom." Hence calling you Ella for short. Or I am just completely stupid and should never call people by their names they choose. I'm sure someone will let me know.

I mean.. so? Day off? Early Retirement? Disabled? The mans 45. Unless he's been a piece of shit your whole life or didn't work. Don't know why what he does is your concern. Certainly doubt you'd want him judging you for something similar.

It could have been his only day off in weeks and he just wanted to spend it by himself relaxing. Grand Theft Auto V is also a really fun game.

I don't understand why this is considered a bad thing? As long as he is a functional person and doesn't do this every single day then honestly I feel he deserves to be able to stay up as long as he wants doing whatever he wants. My dad works 60+ hours a week, often going in on his off days to work. He provides for my family in full, is a functioning human being, and maintains social relationships. so if the man wants to space tfo and shoot people in the face then more power to him. don't judge

I basically agree. 2 points of data does not a pattern make :) My wife and I used to work opposite shifts. One day I fried her some eggs and bacon for breakfast (she was eating and running). I started cooking mine as she left. Woke up, wanted more eggs and bacon, so started them. She came home and had missed lunch so I gave her what I was cooking, FYI the best fried eggs and bacon take just over 9 hours to cook.

That's what I used to tell my mom "Nooo, i've not been playing all the time. you just happend to get at me in the only two Moments i was gaming. Mooom seriously, I was only playing videogames like 15 minutes each time..."

I don't wake up till almost 3pm most days, I go to bed when the sun starts to come up (usually a couple hours after actually). I eat tacos and hot wings for breakfast, waffles for dinner. I'm going to drink half a bottle of vodka and have a few beers while I play video games for a bout 5 hours before I go to bed and wake up around the crack of 3pm to get some wings and go to work. I'm 38. 18 year old me was a bitch.

I feel like more detail would help here. Like this doesn't say if he has other responsibilities he takes care of like work and/or household/family stuff. If he does it's more than fair for him to spend his free time however he wants, if that's playing video games fine. And I mean, you weren't home how do you know he didn't stop playing for a few hours to run errands or something? I mean, if you use the theory that you saw me in the morning and I was playing with my laptop and then you saw me i
