108- He did use a comma inappropriately. However, your reaction was a little much. The comma immediately following the word "fact" should not be present. Aside from that, he was correct in setting off the word "sir" by using commas. If you still want to slowly roast him and serve him on a bed of lettuce, though, feel free to do so. I'll have a tender piece...
That sucks, man. But why do you still live with your parents, as was implied by your post?
4, Because this is the 21st century. Its common for people to live at home well into their late 20's, mostly because of the increased cost of living that is usually unsustainable for young or underemployed people. I mean hey, you could risk it and move out without enough backing to support yourself, or you could just swallow your pride and save up, making life a lot easier. It all entirely depends on the opinion of your family rather than yourself. If they're happy to have you then it's fine. If they want you gone, then I guess you're up shit creek :P It is only a problem if you remain at home despite being well off enough to move out, until you are, no harm done.
^completely agree!! If I could live at home I would. Although no where did the fml suggest op is still a student, but being one myself I know living on my own is extremely hard. Keep in mind most people get out of school with a large sum of debt, so hey why not! As for the room cleaning part, that's just what mothers do (and they almost always snoop). Or at least mine... Thank god I now live 5 Hrs away so she can't find excuses to casually "visit" all the time.
You guys are also making the assumption that OP asked her mom to clean her room. I know a lot of people, although they are only about 17 (same concept though), who's mom just cleans their room once in a while out of the goodness of their heart. It's also a way to snoop without looking like a bad mom.
I feel bad for people that live in such bad countries that they have to live with their parents after they turn 18. :< I moved out when I was barely 16. Doing fine, living in a nice place and I don't even have a job because we get money for going to school/college.
she didn't say she lives at home, she might have a mother like Marie Barone who is pushy and comes over whenever she wants.
