The days of sitting around all day, watching 12 hours of baseball, getting hopped up on Ritalin and writing papers, sleeping 15 hours, jerking it to tranny porn...over!

However, with the increased income I will be able to buy a new Xbox...so between work, summer classes, and Xbox...my chiefsplanet time will decrease by 500% (at least)...

so score for you guys?

How have you been paying bills without a job?

my old job enabled me to pay my rent in full before the semester, and my other bills consist of cable and cell phone since I don't have any credit cards...so I've managed to get by. I'm a man, I'm 40.

No, what's pathetic is a father who has the means to support his son through college, but instead kicks his ass out after high school because of a lingering vendetta against the son's mother, his ex-wife, who is DEAD; yet this same father pays for his daughter's college and lets her live at home until she's 24, all because she had the correct mother.

There's nothing wrong with parents supporting their kids, whether it's financially or emotionally, as long as that support is a jumpstart and not a crutch.

And I was not my intention to steer the thread in this direction with my flippant comment. My bad.

And I was not my intention to steer the thread in this direction with my flippant comment. My bad.

of course, like everyone, I have my own biases. I'll lay them out quickly so you can see where I'm coming from.

my parents are both stoners, have been for as long as I can recall. my dad can't handle money at all--my dad is a sad case. he's very intelligent, but has made the worst decisions you can imagine in his life--my mom was a high school dropout who had a child at 16 (my oldest half-sister, trudy).

growing up, we never had much. I learned from an early age that the only way to make it out of my situation was to work, work, and work some more. when it came to college, they always had money for my older sister charlotte. however, when it was time for me, they'd declared bankruptcy (with $500 bucks borrowed from me, fwiw, that's never been paid back), and had nothing to give.

I don't hate my parents--far from it. they're the best goddamned motivation I have to keep going.

I value hard work and take pride in the fact that I'm nothing like my parents--I'm as straight-laced as can be... I don't drink (well, maybe once a year if that), don't smoke, no drugs, etc. I work full-time, and go to college full-time. I'll be paying off school when I'm still 60 years old, but I take a ton of pride in knowing that everything I own is mine.

is it difficult? hell yeah. but I can tell you that there's nothing more invigorating than knowing that I rely on nobody for anything.

I guess that's why I look down on those who suck on the teet--is a bit of it jealousy? maybe. I've never sat down to think about it.

loochy
04-29-2009, 11:09 AM
Well, I think it depends on the method of teet suckage. If one appreciates what they are given and don't ask for or feel entitled to such gifts, then I think it is alright. But not many things compare to the disdain I feel for these little self important, self entitled, little bitches that think people care and expect everything and give and work NOTHING. RAWR.:cuss:

My dad kicked me out too but for good reason. I had some serious anger and respect for authority issues back then. All I cared about was having a good time...and did I ever.

Didn't get a dime for college. Paid my own way and out of that debt about 5 years removed from school. I was the first person in both sides of my family to attend college.

We will pay for my son's college as long as he maintain's A's and B's and trys to get as many grants/scholorships as possible.

There was no love of any kind involved in my situation. My father looked upon my existence as an 18 year contract. He was absolved of any further responsibilities in June of 1983.

He wasn't mean to me; he wasn't nice to me. He wasn't much of anything. He worked, he did his own thing, we rarely talked. In hindsight I wish he'd been harder on me, pushed me to work harder at school, take harder classes, get a job, prepare for life as an adult, but he didn't. He didn't care. He was just counting the days until I was no longer his problem.

People try to tell me that one day we'll patch things up. Or they try to tell me I'll regret it if we don't.

I dont know anyone who's been kicked out, but I heard alot of stories of it 30-40 years ago.

Cultures vary, but I still know some people 30+ still living with their parents. although, I know alot of them are just waiting for their parents to retire and move back, so they could take over the house.


Nowaways, people around my age are still living with their parents. It's now the norm to live with your parents at 25+, especially with this economy. Alot of teens these days just go straight to a part time job after high school. They go to part time school, in a community college. After 4+ years of bad grades and academic probation, they find a job at $12 an hour and just stick with it.

Different times these days, now that I look at what my parents went through. They were adults with kids and had their own house at my age now. I moved out when I was 23. Fortunately I just took over payments on a new house my parents just bought at the time. I dont have kids, and Im still doing the same stuff I did out of high school. My parents were alot older at 26 compared to me now. Mid twenties are still teenagers.

It is what it is. God knows lots of other people had worse. To his credit, he never abused me, I never saw him drunk, when I lived with my mom he never missed a child support payment, and when I lived with him I had everything I needed. He honorably fulfilled his contract; I'll give him that.

But somehow I think a shitty parent who at least cares would probably be better in the long run than a solid earner who doesn't.

Credit is due for providing, but there is a lot to be said for people who honestly work on developing the child emotionally and mentally. My parents tell me shit now that they did, how they handled situations, phrased their comments etc. When I was a kid with the intention of developing me emotionally. They could have babied me, made me figure out a way to deal with it, etc.

I don't know how well it worked because I don't know how I would be if they didn't, but I certainly appreciate the effort.

I tried moving out once when I was 18, and that lasted about 5 months. I was making $6.25/hr and working 20 Hours a week back then.

I fail to see how anyone was ever able to move out of their parents house before they turned 21. Both of my Parents moved out of their Parents house when they were 18.

If you didn't have the option of staying at home you would do what you had to do. At 16 I signed a lease using my brother as a cosigner on an apartment that was over these peoples garage. I had one room and a shitter and paid all my own utilities. I worked two jobs and never, ever could afford to go out but I did it any way.

Thats why your first apartment is a hole in the wall closet. I've been working since I was 13 and was able to get a work permit. I paid my own rent since 17. Worked 3 jobs at 18 but I had an apartment, a TV, and 2 vehicles. (long story - cheap cars)

The full time servers in Chicago at a chain restaurant were easily clearing $55K a year...plus, and I know this is shady, you only have to declare 10%...and often you'd easily clear that...so a lot of what you're making ends up being tax free.

Thats why your first apartment is a hole in the wall closet. I've been working since I was 13 and was able to get a work permit. I paid my own rent since 17. Worked 3 jobs at 18 but I had an apartment, a TV, and 2 vehicles. (long story - cheap cars)

I fail to see how anyone wouldn't strive to hit the world running as soon as they could.

I've always felt that way myself, I've never known anyone who could have they fun I had at that age if they had to check in with their mom.

I got my first job when I was 14. It was at the skating rink I grew up going to. They just couldn't work me after 5pm on weekdays or 7pm on weekends. Needless to say, it was more of a summer job working 2pm-4pm sessions everyday.

I've been doing some research on renting places out here.

The cheapest decent 1 BR place I would be able to find is around $850.

Making Minimum wage (which is now $8 in California), working at 40 hours a week, is $1387 a month (before taxes).

$1387 x .75 = $1040 (after taxes)

$1040 - $850 = $190

That leaves you $190 a month for everything else.

Its tough to do in San Diego, is all I'm saying.

I'd say it's like that everywhere. Sure, housing is cheaper here, but so is minimum wage.

No offense but everything about that post tells me you enjoy living with mommy. Lower your requirements on a place Get a roommate or another job if you really wanted to move out. If not that's cool too.

I'm not arguing that you should live in a hovel. I think roommates are a vital part of growing up. I just think you could have left years ago, had you wanted to.

And I say that as a mother who will probably have to be forcibly taken from her son when he tries to leave.

Yeah, but minimum wage was $6.25 when I earned that ($1.75 less than it is now), yet renting an apartment was still the same back then, if not a little more.

I do enjoy it, a lot. Free meals, not exactly free rent, but a lot less than now.

Did you see that I moved out when I was 18, for 5 months? I had to move back in for financial reasons.

I think that has a lot to do w/ me missing my mom.

P.S. did you ever read the thread about the gay bar?

No, I missed the gay bar thread but have seen refernce to it many times. I know that had it been an option for me I probably would have stayed at home longer too, not baggin on you, I was just sayin

I start work on the 17th, looking forward to having a J.O.B. again. The GI bill is nice, but by the time rent and bills are paid, I'm flat broke during the school year.

Hoping to find some steady work for during next semester. I should be able to save some from my summer job, but the GI bill shuts off during summer, so it will probably end up balancing out.

Was a great choice, start paying rent, and quit my job...

That's ok though, it's almost summer when I can realistically work again. I'm taking 17 hours this semester and it has been a rough one.

It is what it is. God knows lots of other people had worse. To his credit, he never abused me, I never saw him drunk, when I lived with my mom he never missed a child support payment, and when I lived with him I had everything I needed. He honorably fulfilled his contract; I'll give him that.

But somehow I think a shitty parent who at least cares would probably be better in the long run than a solid earner who doesn't.

This is kinda true, my dad at the time was a lost fucking cause. He payed his child support, but that was the only fucking support i had from him. I think i went like 3-4 years as a kid without even see'ing him. Now go figure he lives around me and recently turned his life around. He kinda had too though. If not, he was going to prison for a few years and he said he's to old for that. I was like fucking really? i dont hate him or anything, but it is what it is.

Moms on the other hand, i was a momma's boy, i can admit it. S he did everything she could for me. She worked her ass of in life and still does, but she likes it. That women can never ever stay still. I did wish at times growing up she cared a little less. It kind of fucked me up i think, but she had a really rough upbringing and it hink she was to much into mine and my sisters business because her mom died when she was like 12 years old.

Life is strange so different for so many people. I just take it is, this is how it was meant to be and move on.

Different Era. Tough love etc. I don't think kids get kicked out now as much as they use to.

This was in 1992, fwiw. It does seem like kids are coddled a little bit more nowadays. I don't like it. My father would not have let me be homeless if I couldn't make it on my own, maybe he saw that I had what it takes to make it.

I get out on my own, he gets a spare room....win/win.

Or he just didn't care. I never had a strong relationship with him. I worked hard for his approval, and we never had big blowouts......he was pretty mellow. He wasn't around much at all when I was little. Then I went and lived him when I was around 14 or 15. Didn't last long.

Sort of the same boat, I got tossed at 16, I thought that made my old man an asshole. 20 years later I realize I was definately the asshole. I went in he Army, did 9 years and allowed all of you fine taxpayers to put me through school, so to all of you I say thanks, but I earned it.
No thank you for service.
Yes you earned it . Every penny of it.

yep, i was out at 17, been out ever since. and dad did it(made me go) have a brother and several sisters, i'm the oldest and when the police come around looking for you all the time..... what's he supposed to do? i understood then AND still do now. made me a better person in the long run(sure as hell didnt then though) but i dont hate or even get jealous of people who have it handed to them. WHY? all it would do is make me bitter.i think if it had gone any other way i wouldnt be the person i am now

There's nothing wrong with parents supporting their kids, whether it's financially or emotionally, as long as that support is a jumpstart and not a crutch.



Yup.

To all the fine people who frequent adult arcades...

<hr> Date: 2009-01-02, 8:45PM PST


I have logged 10 ,count em, 10 years working for an adult bookstore and I think I am more than qualified to offer some helpful tips to make your visit to these shops just a little more enjoyable. Please excuse any grammatical or spelling errors.

1) It is a complete wast of time to become upset when I refuse to shake your hand after you exit the arcade. You just had anonymous sex with a man, woman, tranny, or you just got finished masturbating. Had you grabbed the key to the restroom and washed your hands I might just have considered it, otherwise I have no interest in touching you. You really have no reason to be offended at this one, just think about it for a moment.

2) I'm sorry if you have only limited time to have gay sex with a stranger during your lunch break. If the only customers I have in the arcade are so old you are wondering how they remain upright, much less get it up, I simply can't waive a magic wand and fill the arcade with an all gay swim team. It really doesn't matter how horny you are, complaining incessantly about it changes nothing. Along that same line, I am not a resident fall back option and I'm sorry, but offering me cash for sex will not change my mind on this one (ever).

3) We offer the options of entering a booth with a window, a glory hole, or a private booth. If you enter a booth with a window, please don't be surprised if you look up and find someone watching you, coming to the counter and demanding that I throw whomever out because they were peeking at your willy will honestly accomplish little. If you enter a booth with a gloryhole, please don't be surprised if at some point a penis comes through it. Also don't be surprised if a voice comes through it asking for you to stick your penis through the hole, it's what it's there for. These traumatic events can all be avoided by entering a private booth where you can masturbate to your hearts content in relative privacy.

4) You enter a booth, insert a 1, 5, 10, or 20 dollar bill into the bill acceptor, and have a seat. The movie will play until the time limit for the amount of money you put into the machine runs out. If at that time you have not managed to relieve yourself you have still received what you paid for. Screaming at me will not get you more time in the arcade, it will just get you thrown the fuck out. Sitting in a booth with no money in the machine while you desperately try to grunt out a quick one is just not acceptable. If I knock on the door offering to get you change and you come out all grumpy saying something like "I just spent 7000 dollars here" or "do you know how much I spend here in a month" we now have a problem. You see, the concept really is simple yet I feel the need to break it down for you. If I go to McDonalds, order a cheese burger and eat it, I would not be allowed to sit there and eat unlimited cheese burgers all fucking day because I paid for the first one. Duh!! same thing here, once that TV screen goes black YOU GOT WHAT YOU PAID FOR! If you want to continue, fish out another bill or if you are broke GO THE FUCK HOME AND FINISH THERE.

4) This one is important, so pay it some fucking attention. If you happen to be a horny gay man (nothing wrong with that) and inappropriately proposition another man in the parking lot and he punches you in the mouth, YOU HAD IT COMING. I want to reiterate for the slow among us, YOU ASKED FOR IT!!! Please wait until you are in the arcade to cruise for dick. We offer a wide range of products that straight people need, so don't assume because someone is going to the adult bookstore they are gay. That is just fucking stupid you moron.

5) My job is to police the arcade and sell shit. That is all I get paid to do and it's all I care about. I could care less if you have a wedding ring on as you suck off 12 dudes, I don't care if you are cheating on your wife with a woman of "questionable standards", I don't care if you enjoy dressing in your little sisters cloths and putting on a show for strangers in a window booth, I DO NOT GIVE A FUCK WHAT YOU ARE DOING IN THERE. I do not need a play by play description of what you were just doing. Keep it to yourself or write it in your journal or whatever. Just leave me out of it, I will not be impressed, seriously.

6) If you pee in the trashcans and I catch you you will be cleaning that booth and I will be berating you the entire time it takes you. You sick fucker what the fuck did your mother teach you when you were little. I will then take your fucking picture and show it to every one who works here. You will never be allowed back in, EVER!!!!!!

7) I understand that sex creates wet spots on clothing, etc...but if you come walking out of the arcade with cum in your beard, on your shirt, pants, whatever, I reserve the right to point and laugh. We thoughtfully provide paper towels just for that situation. If you choose not to use them then I choose to laugh and call you a douche bag.

8) We have janitors clean the arcade 3 times a day, every day. I can do little for you if the booth you so desperately need to whack off in has a load of cum dripping down the monitor. I will not be rushing back there to clean that up real quick for you. If the little present left by the previous occupant offends you so much you have 2 options,
1) Walk your ass to another, cleaner, booth.
2) reach up and grab a paper towel from the dispenser and clean it up your fucking self.
That's it, throw the biggest tantrum you can and you will still be left with the same 2 options.

I do hope you find this little piece of information helpful. Have a wonderful day!
