is there anything worse?
i have to do this tomorrow. i'm fairly close to suicide.
I hate hate hate living at home. It's like Baghdad or Gaza in my house most weeks over petty silly things AND I'm going for a job next week and it pays pittance so if I bag it I won't even be able to move out. Everyone who doesn't live at home seems to say it's not so great solo because of bills etc but if I'm not out by age 26 I may die.
where do they live?
What is worse though is living with your girlfriend's parents. So count yourself lucky young man
I fucking loved it.
It's getting tiresome. The novelty has worn off
Sheesh. Get yourself out man.
I can afford it
I said that for ages, then took the plunge and it's actually not that big a thing to do when you do it. We just got up one days and started renting a house. Simple!
I thought it was your girlfriends? That's not the same!
devonmalcolm is doing..
that would be me.
but until I finish my MA (£400 per month) it really is unlikely!
But come September I'm/we're outta there
Good point. God speed, young Laslett.
I moved back after uni and pay £200 all in a month (rent, food, washing etc). I think I have it rather sweet.
because I a) had to save for a deposit and b) couldn't get anywhere for such a short period.
Bless them for having me, but it was a fucking nightmare. Having your wings clipped so massively after complete liberation from the middle-of-nowhere family environment... not pretty.
Went on a lot of benders (not a double entendres) and slept on a lot of sofas that summer...
That's it, the 'wing-clipping' thing. I actually ended up shouting at my mum for offering to make me a cup of tea. There's only so much generosity I can handle!
that doesnt bother me, i'm old enough to not give a shit about what mum thinks. its the fact that its so, SO far away.
The having to be constantly clean and tidy with no room for anywhere to look "lived in".
The single bed (my gf also lived with her parents at the time - was about to go to uni - we were moving in together in York).
The amniotic burble of bad TV...
But I love them loads, they were very good to me and it's stupid to complain. It just wasn't ideal for that time in my life at ALL so I can completely sympathise.
buts its just SO not where i wanna be livng
seriously, though, that's a real shame. sorry to hear that.
i think i'll still pretend to live there
there's a job here - apply for it!
I think your parents want to use the computer.
I had to do this when the shit hit the fan financial wise and it was kinda tough swallowing my pride. But i must admit the cooking was good.
What's happened to your current place?
I thought you lived with Lady Meths anyway.
sorry to hear it. real life sucks.
of course that's not harsh and of course that's not what I meant.
if your dream is to live independently away from home, and you were quite happily doing that and then had to move home through no choice of your own then yes, it does suck.
And you KNOW you have always got the music room and spare bed at my place if you want.... even tho you probably want to be as far away from Chris as possible (and Floyd).
It will be ok AND you have the lovely Ricky just up the road from you so that is better..
it was horrid at first, but we have grown closer now. my dad has stopped telling me to get a hair cut now too, bless
but it's cheap so there is much more money for going to gigs and stuff.
having to bail you out once you've moved away. Repeatedly. Moving home might actually be preferable to that...
would be parents moving in with you
I would imagine
its allowed me to fulfil all my laziness fantasies.
true, i am getting pissed off with it, and i maybe should have done something about it earlier, but its not THAT bad. well, mother allows me to do pretty much anything i want, and only ever complains about late night noise (which is understandable)
It was quite fun. One of my friends from school did the same thing and we spent about a year doing crappy temp jobs and getting hammered down the pub.
Then we grew up, got proper jobs and moved out. That year of bumming around rent-free was brilliant though.
Though I stayed with mum for longer than one year. More like two and a half I think.
Mainly this was because by the time I was financially able to move in with someone, everyone had almost a year on their contracts...
But I never, ever want to live with them again. Christmas was bad enough.
oooo, 4 times since leaving university?
The best was having to call them drunk at 3 in the morning to tell them to pick me and my stuff up coz my housemate had beat me up with a saucepan.
Out of the frying pan, into the...parent's house.
I'm looking forward to it. My rooms big enough has a big tv, armchair and the internet. I shall not have to spend to much time downstairs. My dad also lives on his own for the first time in 30 years, so I think he is looking forward to me moving back in.
i remember the last time i had to do it, the first night in my sleep i smashed up my room.
But will taunt you cos in a few months I'll be as far away as is possible
Classic Seinfeld episode 'The Puffy Shirt' season 5 i think.
George has to move back in with his parents. pure comedy genius,
watch it :D
when I was 25. I was in a livein relationship and got dumped while I was in hospital and had to move back to my folks when I got out of hospital, she kept the flat. I thought it'd only be for a few months till I got a house from the council, it took a year and I got moved into a shithole :) It wasn't the same being back, you've got used to a way of life and they've got used to a way of life and there's certain things they frown on you doing under their roof. Better than a shop doorway though
Having a very painful disease.
But apart from that...
for a few months recently. It was a bit of a nightmare. Luckily I managed to get out again before my brother and his wife moved in. Now that would have been absolutely rubbish!
Sounds like the basis of a sitcom or that Parenthood film or somthing.
both me and my brother are currently stuck living with our parents. luckily neither of us have wives as well... it's pretty hellish though, my brother's really frustrated with living here and gets annoyed at the slightest thing anyone does. but he needs to pass his driving test, then his job moves to sheffield. i have to hang on til august, then i'm moving in with some friends, can't bloody wait!
Am so glad to be out of it.
