Yo lunchbox... hurry up! @ 08:23 pm

I really need a damn house... this living with my parents deal isn't going to last too long at all. Don't get me wrong, my parents rock and all but come on! My mom is way too mothering, and involved and my dad just has his own style. I really need my own place. I think part of it is because I hate people :)

I'm debating writing a nice email and telling my parents how I feel about paying rent. They haven't given me a good reason that I should pay rent. Every cent they make me pay is that much less I have to put down on a house, and it's not like they need the money. Oh well...

Only $100, but it's the principal of the thing.

i told you about the mother being way to mothering and feeling smothered again living at home :)

what you need to do is lock yourself away in your room and keep away from everyone and keep the daylight out!

Whoa.. let me get this straight.

Your paying $100 a month in rent? What are you complaining about? Keeping you at home isn't exactly free. You use thier electricity, probably eat thier food, contribute to the waste.. what are you complaining about? $100 /mth seems pretty fair.

Another question, if you do have a problem with it your going to e-mail them? Why don't you just talk to them face to face?

I can understand being frustrated about the situation, but your parents rock compared to a lot of parents out there. I paid my rent AND dealt with a huge set of rules.

I'm not complaining about the money, I'm complaining about motives and inconsistency.

I would email them for two reasons. #1 it's easier to get ahold of both of them that way... #2 it's easier to express all of my thoughts on paper.

Which of course would be followed up with a conversation. Email to get it started...

I'm not arguing about the money, I totally understand why they would want me to pay rent. But they're no charging my brother a dime, he has no goals and he treats them like shit.

I one the other hand have things figured out, I'm just waiting a couple months for opporutinty, and I contribute more around here.

That's a valid argument.

What I don't think is right, is that they don't make your brother pay rent. He isn't doing anything to really further his life. He needs to grow up and your parents should be charging him rent and maybe he would learn to have responsibilities (I know it is spelled wrong). You actually want to get out. I don't know, My dad did say something though. He said if he was charging me rent. He would be keeping it for me and give it back to me when I did move out.
