For my 18th I got a nice set of luggage and a swift kick in the ass.
Yeah, I guess that's cool for the parents that don't want to see their children succeed... I mean, living on your own means having a full time job. If you were hoping to go to, say, med school or law school, I don't think that leaves you much time to work. Oh, is that why there are so many uneducated citizens here?!

Good for your parents. Tough love is what stuck-up, demanding, pretentious little snots like you need. Your parents give you a roof over your head, clothes on your back, and food on your plate. So the least you could do is clean up your filth, you fucking slob. Happy fucking birthday. Now clean up your shit.
Agreed. Let me see if I've got this right, OP. You are old enough to live on your own but live with your parents and all they ask is for you to help around the house but you've not been doing it? And now you're upset because they didn't kick in for birthday swag, huh? No, that's not a two-fingered salute, I swear. It's me playing the world's tiniest cello (I never took violin lessons). Quick question: what did you give either of them on their last birthdays? Yeah. GTFO.
#5 i think you're going kinda far with assuming OP is stuck up. Also those things you mentioned are things the parents HAVE to do. They're the ones who chose to have a child. And why assume OP is a slob. Them owing chores doesn't mean they MADE a mess. It could just mean they have a reduced list of things around the house to do like the dishes, taking out the trash, ect.
I inferred OP was of age based on the language used. I don't often hear minors specify "my parents, who I live with". The implication is that OP is old enough to move out but hasn't, for some reason. And OP wouldn't owe housework if he/she had been contributing as expected. Speaking of expectations, just because it is a parent's job to care and provide for his/her child, it doesn't mean the child does not owe a debt of gratitude at the very least.
Or maybe what it meant was that his parents went to live with HIM. There are lots of people who live with with their kids. But op just didn't think there was a different connotation between I live with and live with me which technically do mean the same thing
Ydi for selecting hobos or cheapskates as parents. Since you're getting a break from your cleaning chores, you ought to get pissed and puke all over the house for them to clean up. Of course, they might just let it sit and let you clean it up tomorrow while you have a hangover.
