I've just turned 23 and until recently I was still getting allowance from my mum because I was studying away from home and only worked part time. Maybe OP's still living at home to study and gets allowance through having no time to work, or not had much luck job-hunting and can't afford to move out yet. And regardless of why OP is still receiving allowance and living at home at 23, accidentally stubbing your toe on your drunk passed-out father is still a stupid reason for it to be withdrawn in my opinion.
To be fair, #4, this could very well have happened at OP's own place. My family all have keys to my apartment (thank goodness they also have a sense of boundaries). It's also possible OP is the responsible one and dad is living with/staying with OP. It's also possible (since OP is the one up in the morning) that OP has a job or is going to school. Best not to judge without all the facts and just empathize with OP.
Looking at OP's location, rent around Alberta can start around $1 500. OP may be living at home until he can afford a down payment on a house. As well, Alberta has been hit hard by the oil and gas recession so he could have had a job and lost it, like a large majority of the province. Don't be so quick to judge. I'm 26 and living at home, but have a full time job. I'm just about to move into the condo I finally bought.
You're 23 and you still have allowance?
Why do you have an allowance at 23
