This is something that has been bugging me for a while. Why is it that so many people in Generation X and Y are mooching off their parents? Every time I turn around, I hear about some Baby Boomer parent paying for their grown kids expenses. Not just helping them out with one or two bills. No, taking the responsibility to pay the expense(s) every month. If you’re over 21 and out of school, then you are GROWN and should be paying for your own expenses.
Can’t afford them? Then cut back and live within your means. Don’t get paid enough? Then get a new job. Don’t have the skills? Then go back to school. There are plenty of us still paying off our student loans 10 years later without any help. So guess what? Life is hard… for everyone. And your parents have already done their fair share of taking care of your behind.
Figuring a way to pay your bills and maintain your lifestyle is what it takes to be an ADULT. Adolescence should not last through your 30’s or your 40’s. It should not end when your parents die. All of you moochers need to grow up and be an adult. Because, when you have run your parents into the grave, there won’t be anyone else there whose going to baby you.
