You know what makes me sick? You know what makes me so mad I just wanna swap ball caps with a homeless guy with head lice?
Yeah – I heard about this new government study on here the other day… it said the number of adult children living at home with their parents is at a new all-time high. Get this – 30% of grow’d up kids between the ages of 18 and 34 – still live with their parents.
The bug-eyed bean-counters that done the study said that the recent recession had been particularly hard on young adults… and many have still not recovered.
Now – excuse me for stating the obvious – but it sounds to me like it’s their PARENTS that ain’t recovered. Hell – you’re 25 and still living at home – you got free room and board and your mama is still cooking you scrambled eggs and toast for breakfast. That don’t sound particularly hard to me.
And I know what I am talking about – being one of these unfortunate parents. Our little girl, Sandra Dee is still living at home. And that being despite our best efforts to kick her out of the so-called nest. I mean – we changed the locks on the doors four times.
My old lady hooked her up with two room-mates on Craig’s List… but they were both captured and arrested before we could get them together. So that didn’t work.
You know how some parents got them ‘boomerang’ kids… leave home and end up moving back? We got us a ‘barnacle kid’… she’s gone and latched on to the good ship Pitts… and we can’t scrape her off for nothing.
Wake up, America!!! Back when we were young… we couldn’t wait to get our own place. And now we’re this age… and we can’t wait to get our own place. Funny how that works. I’m Earl Pitts, America – like me on Facebook. And Pitts Off.
