34 Things Only People Who Live With Their Parents Understand
Everything is basically free (except you of course).
You get amazing home cooked meals all the time.
And your lunch is often the envy of your peers.
But privacy? Nope, you can forget it.
So you can't leave just anything lying around.
You have a seemingly endless supply of everything.
Which is GLORIOUS when you get home drunk at 4am.
But that means instead of a housemate, your parents are exposed to your drunken antics.
Even when you live in the same house they need to know where you are at all times.
And they just LOVE dropping in comments about your lack of tidiness/decorum/respect when you're just trying to have a nice conversation.
Amongst many other things, you regularly get lectured about your drinking.
You can't even take a piss without reminders of your to-do-list.
And parents basically invented passive aggressive notes.
Forget about smoking.
But since they're helping you out you can't say shit.
So you secretly lash out.
Technology is often your saviour during these dark times.
APART FROM WHEN YOUR PARENTS ASK YOU TO HELP THEM WITH IT.
Which leads them to think you are suddenly responsible for the internet.
When you meet people for the first time and they learn you live with your parents:
So you try to convince yourself and everyone that it's actually cool.
Your situation isn't exactly ideal for relationships.
Sometimes you just want to be alone.
Like when you've had a bad day at work and your Mum keeps asking you if she should buy a new toaster.
Or if you think the dog has lost weight.
People always assume you have shit ton of money to spend.
Forgetting that the WHOLE REASON you're enduring this torture is so you can save for your future.
You just miss being able to do simple things you like in peace.
But your parents care about you more than any housemate ever could.
And your safety is always their priority.
So you know you'll miss them when you finally move out.
