Today, after 6 months abroad, I finally got home to the airport at 5 a.m. where my parents were supposed to be picking me up. I called my mother to let her know I'd landed. She picked up with a sleepy voice and asked, "Who is this?" I'm an only child and we live 2 hours away from the airport. FML

The FML is not about op not knowing how to get home, but about op's parents apearantly not caring about seeing their child again after 6 months. I dont care how old or independent op is or should be. It is not too much to ask for your parents to be a bit exited to see you after such a long time. take care op, I hope they make you feel welcome once you get home!

So you’re old enough to spend 6 months abroad, but can’t get home without your parents? Let them sleep, and make your own arrangements, like a grownup.

I live aboard. Usually when I go home, my parents tell me that they'll pick me up. Doesn't matter what the time is. I'd imagine that the parents did the same thing.

He likely had no vehicle. And taking a taxi two hours away would cost an arm and a leg. So would six months of long term airport parking to have a vehicle at the air port when he arrived.

Get off his case. Not to much to ask his parents to pick him up. Most situs do the same thing if they could.
