Today, I visited my dad. He gave the, "You live under my roof, you follow my rules" lecture since I didn't do my "chores". I moved out 3 years ago. FML

Say the same thing to him when he visits you.

It's true that you have to follow the rules in someone's else's house. But it doesn't include doing work for their lazy ass.

Two wrongs don't make a right, but two Wrights made an airplane

and 4 rights make a square

And 8 corners make a cube

And 10 rights make a bill.

I'm just a bill; yes I'm only a bill...

I hate it when parents are so controlling like that

It's what parents are supposed to do, Its because they want what's best for their Kid. Chores help with responsibility. I don't necessarily agree with the dad saying that after they moved out three years ago though. Maybe he is in denial?

#21 If OP has been living alone for 3 years I'm pretty sure he had enough responsibility.

I'm not saying they had to do chores, I meant when they were younger.

It's still a pretty lazy comment. If your kid is wondering why they have to do chores, explain to them that you are living togheter and that you should share the chores that have to be done.

At least you moved out?

Even moving out didn't help him.

Yeah, I agree. I haven't moved out yet (I'm 15) but whenever I'm staying at a relative's house, I always offer to do dishes after dinner or something small like that. Common curtesy.

It's good that you agree, but how does what you said afterwards support that at all?

But the rules in this case are doing chores. There's a difference between hospitality rules and "my house, my rules" rules.

Now go to your room!!

In your own apartment.

How old is your father? Is it possible that this lapse in memory could be a symptom of something more serious?

Maybe OP'S Dad has a noisy ghost living with him and he thinks it's OP.

That was my first thought too. Early onset dementia or something. This worries me more than anything

or he could just be fucking lazy and wants to make op do work so he doesn't have to.....but, ya know, fuck logic, everything has to be a medical fiasco.

That was my first thought as well, but then again, I've been married for 3 years, living away since I was 17 (I'm 21 now) and my mom still expects me to do chores whenever I visit. I'm not speaking of making the bed, cleaning after my pets or doing dishes either; it's more of a 'I want the whole house clean by the time I come home' kinda chores.

Maybe you should remind him that you no longer live there and haven't for three years..? Maybe he's really confused :(

Maybe OP has a sibling that still lives at home and they look similar. OP's dad might be mixing them up.

I dont understand people who mix others up. The names I can understand, but usually they instantly realize their mistake. It doesn't usually go on that long. It's possible I guess.

He either has an issue or is just too lazy to do it himself haha

If he's too lazy to do it himself he still has an issue in my books lmao.

If he was completely serious, which is how I took it, my first thought was Alzheimer's or something that produces similar symptoms. I hope he was just being a dick and all is well! :)
