18 Things Any Adult Who Lives At Home Knows All Too Well
"You treat this place like a hotel."
You might be an adult with serious grown-up responsibilities, but if you live at home, it's most likely that your parents treat you like a little kid.
As a result, at times you can't resist reverting back to your angsty teenage ways.
When you tell people you still live at home, they just assume that you don't have a clue about how the adult world works.
And unlike adults who don't live at home, duvet days, lie-ins, and lazy days are practically non existent.
And your home life most probably feels like an endless cycle of chores.
Chances are your bedroom hasn't changed much since childhood, which means it doesn't reflect your adult personality at all.
You end up bickering with your siblings about really petty things that other adults wouldn't bat their eyelids about.
Or if they're much younger, you're basically an unpaid babysitter.
You have to deliver a PSA whenever you leave the house just to avoid being bombarded with "where are you" texts.
Your parents constantly lecture you about your life choices.
And they probably judge you for all your bad habits.
Because, for some reason, your private life is always a hot topic of discussion.
If you ever have any tasty leftovers, you've learnt to just assume that someone else will eat them before you get a chance to.
And the closest thing you've had to hosting a fancy dinner party is helping out when your parents have their friends come over.
You end up getting really sucked into your parents' gossip, which is mostly about people you don't even know.
And you've definitely had to sit through waay too many awkward sex scenes with the whole family.
Having an empty house is a rare luxury that only happens once in a blue moon.
But when your family go away for too long, you actually end up missing them.
