Let me just state facts. 22 years old. Work 2 jobs. One during the week, the other during the weekend. used to pay parents 400 / mo rent, now its gone up to 600. my parents get rent ontime every month, a clean house, and an obidient son. The only reason I live at home is because im in school to try to open up my own business. However, my parents feel the need to treat me like a kid. I'm strung up and trapped here. I cannot do anything but do what they say. Get home from working, or handing out resumes for another job, and im sent to the back yard to shovel 1500lbs of gravel across the yard, and then when i finished, was told to haul it all over to the neighbors yard. I was given a flood light at 10 pm when the sun went down so i could see what i was doing. What happens if i would have said, fuck this, im not doing it? Boom, kicked out of the house. See, some people have hobbies. My hobby and other source of spending money is graphic design, web design. My father decides its in my best interest that he takes my computer downtown to use as a webserver. i paid nearly 800 bucks for all of it, put it all together myself. I also love xbox live and halo 2, but am no longer permitted to play, as both my xboxes are now locked up in a 24 hour monitored, patrolled, securely locked server rack, above my computer. Everything i have, or anything i do to keep my self from killing people has just been taken away by my parents. They wont explain their logic, why they do things, nor will they make any attempts are rectifying the situation. my 19 year old sister spent her college fund on her boyfriend. she got a trip to mexico with her boyfriend paid for, for her 18th birthday. I got 2 beers at the bar and a card with 18 bucks in it. She doesnt pay rent, she gets spending money for her and her asshole boyfriend. she doesnt even have a fucking JOB, meanwhile im working 2 of them! im seriously stressed and in tears at the utter bullshitness of my life in my parents home. im stuck, i dont know what to do. friends and family have no space for me to live with them, and moving out on my own is not an option, i simply cannot afford it even with 2 jobs. every piece of money that i had saved has gone to them because they need it. nevermind the fact that they can go spend $500 on a quaker parrot, or 100 bucks on some 'rare' bunny rabbit. No, nevermind that hignes and vance guitar head or that extra guitar and pedal. i just cant take it anymore and i dont know what to do. im simply at the end of my rope and all my options have been exhausted.
