Today, after months of job hunting, I finally got a phone call. They were impressed with me. That's when my son decided to throw a tantrum asking for food. After some silence, the caller told me they were looking for someone who wasn't juggling little kids at home and hung up. My son is 20. FML

I'm almost 19 and I still live at home with my parents, as do my 23 year old sister and 26 year old brother. We're saving up money so that when we do move out, we have a good start. We all work full time, pay for our own cars and even buy our own food. Why should we move out when we're hardly there anyway? The time that I am at home, is when my mum would ask me to visit if I moved out. I have no reason to move out, plus it's incredibly expensive to move out where I live unless I moved to another area. Our work is close to home, too.

I've got a friend who still lives at home. The job market can be rough, but she would never behave like this guy. The fact that he's living at home isn't the problem, it's that he's a spoilt brat.

OP doesn't need to tell him to buy his own food, OP needs to tell him to pay his own rent, somewhere else. I have no problem with people living at home late but OPs son has lost that privilege and needs to be tossed out on his butt.

#66 not really? some people prefer to live with their parents because they choose to focus on school without having to worry about rent and paying bills, and in fact to me, even as an 18 year old, I can say no one is a full adult at 18. Even with friends who have done this and done rather well, I still see moreso as kids really

I pay my share of the rent, my insurance, and most of the groceries come from my paycheck as well.

anyway OP, I'm extremely sorry to hear about your loss of luck. I really hope something better comes your way.

Let me explain. I don't have asmall child, my son is 20 years old.

You rasied a son that is 20 years old and pitches a fit like a 5 year old. You are the perfect candidatefor this job.
