Today, my mom got a cat. I'm allergic to cats, so I politely asked my mom why she got it. Her response: "I want you to finally want to move out." I turned eighteen two weeks ago. FML

Well yeah, but damn thats a very awful way to make her child move out! At least, she could've had the decency to talk to him face to face about it

Yeah I completely agree with that! Her mom's an ass so she should get out and stay with a friend.

The OP has to find a friend to help until he can get on his feet, but cats always land on their feet. Cats 1 Humans 0

Cats may land on their feet, but we have opposable thumbs. Human 1 Cats 1 You're move cats...

Our seductive purring can always land us some affection from a minion, I mean human. Cats 3, Humans 1

I was going to help the human side, but I realized everything people have done, cats have done, but cuter and more fluffy. Soooooo many cat videos

It has been shown in experiments (conducted by humans with cats), that is actually wrong. Evil Human Scientists: 1 Cats: 0

cats know when to use Your vs You're Cats: 4 Humans: 1

Evil villains always have cats Cats: 5 Humans: 1

Despite their partial enslavement of humankind, cats are easily controlled (albeit indirectly) by the remainder of the humans with catnip. Cats 5 Humans 2

Also,many humans have dogs, and dogs have Ace the bathound and Krypto. Dogs...6 Humans: 3 cats: 5 ( i sense the downvotes coming )

Sorry OP, your mom really should have asked you in a less homicidal way.

agreed, and think about the cat. OP's mom probably just wanted the cat to get OP to move out. She probably doesn't even care about the cat anyway.

kittykat1501 31

yes. poor kitty. OP deserved it. obviously kidding, except about the cat thing.

sell the cat to a guy who will buy it for $5 and give the cat back $500.

It's simple really. The cat wasn't being lenient when it heard that OP was selling it for 5 bucks. So this user suggest OP should bribe the cat 500. 1) Sell cat for $5 2)Bribe cat $500 to leave 3)????? 4) No, you don't make profit. You make -495 dumbass.

I believe it was a reference to an FML from a LONG time ago.

I wish I had your mom! You're legal now! Carry on, move out, and start finally living your life!

Op's mom is an asshole. Why the hell would you want her as a mom?

Okay. Just because you're legal doesn't mean you move out right after you turn 18. You have to figure out your life first. You can't just... Leave

TheDrifter 23

Sure you can just leave, that method worked for millennia. Think of it as an applied economics course vs a theoretical one. You can sit at home and ponder your life for years, or you can start living it and find out what it contains.

I don't see the problem with moving out right after you turn 18, I did. I spent months before my 18th birthday looking for an apartment. A few days after I tuned 18 I applied for an apartment. My grandmother had to consign the lease, but I made it happen. I haven't relied on my family at all since I moved out. I think people rely too heavily on their parents nowadays, they are so use to being taken care of that can't grow a pair and learn to take care of themselves.

ILoveMyArm 15

I think she just means that she wish her mom was less strict in a sense of being able to move out and all. Some parents are too overprotective, for example, my mom refuses to let me move out until I finish college and get a stable job or get married. What she doesn't understand is my dream own an arm factory may not kick off for a while.

A lot of 18 year olds have car payments, school payments, and now you want to add apartment payments? 18 doesn't automatically mean you become a financially stable person...

#52 I don't know why you've been down voted so much. You told a story about you and how it applies to the FML. It says a lot. You've got my thumbs up!

Your definitely right, you can tell because the kids on this site always thumbs down the people who make sense.

That's good for you, but realistically most 18-year-olds cannot support themselves financially. This is especially true of college-bound teenagers - yes, as it turns out, at 18 you're still a teenager. College is expensive to begin with, then you want to force them to pay for both school and living expenses on the low wage job they'll get with so little experience? For some it is feasible, but for a large number of teenagers this just isn't. Minimum wage is not a living wage to begin with, so to live on it AND pay for school? Extremely difficult for someone who is, by biological definition, not yet fully grown to begin with.

hotPinklipstick 24

I understand that not everyone can do it, but I went to college as well while living on my own. It was a constant struggle, but it's possible. I had a minimum wage job at the time. I paid for college and for my apartment as well. Most of my meals were ramen noodles and can vegetables. It took a lot of sacrifice on my part, but I was determined to support myself and I made it happen. I don't see why some of you guys are making it sound impossible to survive on your own.

93- And I don't understand why some people seems to think everyone should move out at 18.

Because for some people, it is impossible for the time being. My best friend turned 18 two days ago. She has no job and could not support herself financially. What she does have is asthma and many allergies that require her to take medications and three weekly shots. If her mother kicked her out, she could not acquire the treatments she needs and would be very sick all of the time. Don't judge lest ye be judged.

Whatever happened to having a talk with your kids & asking/telling them to move out ?

That's not very nice of her... Maybe you should piss in her car as revenge.

What a messed up way to get revenge....

Wtf is wrong with you? Where is the logic in that?

Referencing other FMLs will not always get you tons of upvotes. Just a heads up.

Your parents must be so proud.

Now that's ******* cold. That's not a way to treat your child, you can't just throw them out as soon as they hit 18! You gotta at least make sure that they have everything they need to move out properly, you're still a parent after all. :/

If they have no direction at 18, then why should she have to keep carrying him through life?

He just turned 18 lol. Not all of us have our lives mapped out by the eighteenth birthday fairy. You can't just go

Oh #26, so as soon as you hit 18 you already had a job that could pay for all of your bills and expenses, with an apartment, means of transportation, and a bank account? Good for you! Not everybody has that same luck and no parent should ever kick their child out of the house just because they turned 18. So shoosh away and please don't have kids, thank you very much.

It's not a matter of luck. It used to be called "taking responsibility for your life". Kind of a cute, antiquated notion these days isn't it? At this rate our grand children will never consider moving, they'll just take over the house when their parents move to a nursing home.

If my mom did this to me, I'd cut her off and not even attend her funeral.

its not a matter of not doing anything of those things yes this OP's mother was a bit rash with her approach but imo if you are smooching off of me with no job no schooling I'm getting you an apartment then you are on your own

#83 It has absolutely nothing to do with "responsibility", as you cannot suddenly expect a teenager to suddenly take full reign over their life when they're probably not even out of highschool yet. It is not about "luck" either, it's about giving your children the right amount of time for them to prepare for their new life (so they have at least the BARE MINIMUM to survive on their own) and not booting them out of the house just because the government now recognizes them as a legal adult. Life wasn't easy back then and it's even harder now, and I have no sympathy for parents who use this kind of tactics to get rid of their children.
