In her mind you're still just a little kid with a bad stomach
if you still live at you're mom's house at 27, you're privacy deserved to be violated. Move out!
you have idea OPs situation. maybe they got laid off, or are going through a nasty divorce. I don't think you should judge anyone based on where they are living. sometimes the best way to better yourself IS to live at home, in order to get your ducks in a row.
8- You have no idea what OP's situation might be. Maybe she can't afford to live by herself yet, maybe she's going through something (like a divorce as someone has already suggested) and just needs a place to stay for a while, maybe her parents live in *her* house, etc. Also she might not even live with them. My sister is 28 and lives with her boyfriend but when she visits our parents' house she still sometimes refers to it as "home". Anyway, the point is you can't judge OP's situation from a little fml.
Ashley most people would look down at the life choices that led you to becoming a single mother at 23. I'm almost 23 and I'm completely dependent on my parents. I'm a full time student who volunteers and actively interns. I'd rather shop, vacation, explore potential interests, party, etc than be raising a child alone. Hopefully at 27 I'll be independent. My brother has been since he graduated college (for the most part). But no one knows where life will lead them. Maybe my fiance and I are looking for a house. maybe I was just laid off. Maybe Im living with them to save up money. Maybe I just came back from the Peace Corps (a very probable situation). Everyone should be allowed basic rights like privacy. Not just you because you think you're entitled to them because you think you work harder than people. Hopefully you'll think twice before making an ignorant comment again. Maybe you should consider other people's life circumstances.
I find it interesting that everyone keeps saying op "still" lives at home. Maybe they're going through a divorce or just got laid off or something and is just moved back in there for the year till they get back on their feet. Just because op is living at home doesn't mean she acts like a spoiled child and is using her parents. I'm 28 and "still" live with my parents due to health issues, chronic pain, and being on disability and unable to work or go to school. No sense in judging when you don't know the full story.
