Today, my son is going through a rebellious phase. He's taken to wearing leather and chains, listening to death metal music all day in his room alone, and screaming at me in public places. He was fired from his part-time job for swearing at customers. My son is 29 years old. FML

jellitonoctopus - that's the beauty of the comment section. You see, many millenia ago the Mighty FML Deity decided to make And he looked and saw it was good. And he said, "Yea, is good, glory be. But the people should be able to comment on the vignettes." And the FML comment section was born. And now the people may comment as they wish without invitation, Deity be praised. Hallelujah and amen and all that etc etc.

umm screw timeouts this is a clear case of what's wrong with America . I bet if OP would have used a belt and also taught some responsiblity. maybe he would be a productive member of society.

Times have changed sadly. What used to be out the house by the age of 18-25 has now become more 23-30. While it makes sense, due to the economy and low paying jobs a a young age, and college expenses, living on your own can be tough. Parents are definitely good resources if you have them available. Anyway, back to the FML.

If he brings up the "I don't want you treating my like a kid anymore" bull, tell him it's because he's actig like a little kid. Black leather and chains is a good look, but the attitude is total crap. He probably just wants attention. Keep an eye on him, he might vandalize. How fun, right?

While it is more normal for kids to live with their parents longer that does not excuse his behavior.

I have an older cousin who is 28 that lives with his parents, but is otherwise pretty independent and doesn't go through immature phases.

The OP's son is.. this is just sad. Wow.


If he's that old and this is happening, he's either mentally fucked in the head or OP is a fail parent. Seriously, if my kid was yelling at me while I'm providing him a place to live, (this still assumes he's 29) I'd kick his ass out of the house and charge rent if he wanted back in.

I agree. I always see sarcasm comments having thumbs down and stupid comments hating on them. It's the internet people, not everyone is serious. That's why the internet is full of kittens.

I like the taste in music. ;)
Also, some of us teens have to lie about our age to recieve the same priveleges as as the other members, cause its ridiculous the features we're denied because of one year.

Its like a mid-life crisis for an early 20th Century life expectancy. *facepalm* I'm about 10 years younger than him, and somewhat immature for my age, and I know better than to act like that. I knew better than that when I was 14, for goodness' sake.
