You lived at home with your mom in her basement? At the age of 38?

Fuck yes. That is a sad state of affairs.

I could understand getting down on your luck and moving home for a couple months temporarily...

Why don't one of you move upstairs?

How tall are you in real life and on the interwebs?

Ashamed is a more appropriate word, unless my house burned down or something.

Probably yes. If it was so that I could help take care of her or something similar than I would not be embarrassed. But I would be embarrassed if I was just freeloading off of her so that I didn't have to pay for rent or food.

ETA: Another situation where I would not be embarrassed is if there was no way that I could live on my own (whether it be because my saving were wiped out in a divorce, I just lost my job, medical issues prevent me from caring for myself, etc.). However, once I regained the ability to live on my own, then I would do so.

Probably not.

I would either be deathly ill, or a spineless, lazy, good for nothing loser afraid to go out into the world and my view of reality would be so twisted it would seem perfectly natural.

But then, I'm 51 and living with my MIL, so...
Link Posted: 10/9/2007 1:15:21 PM EDT
Yes.

It would be embarrassing at 28.
Link Posted: 10/9/2007 1:15:38 PM EDT
Depends on a great many factors.

First and foremost would be finding a mother that had a basement....
Link Posted: 10/9/2007 1:16:21 PM EDT
Depends on the circumstances. Are you there because she is ill and needs constant attention?
Link Posted: 10/9/2007 1:16:43 PM EDT
The only acceptable affirmative answer would be if she was taxidermied and sitting in a rocking chair and staring out the window...
Link Posted: 10/9/2007 1:16:53 PM EDT
I'm living in my Moms laundry room right now.
Link Posted: 10/9/2007 1:17:26 PM EDT
It would be embarrassing at 18.
Link Posted: 10/9/2007 1:17:32 PM EDT
But you know you could have a wicked gun collection..
Link Posted: 10/9/2007 1:17:50 PM EDT
No Wai!

the only thing more embarassing is driving a magenta 4 wheeler!
Link Posted: 10/9/2007 1:18:11 PM EDT
As long as it wasn't permanent, not really. If I had a family, a basement would beat a car or ally any day of the week.
Link Posted: 10/9/2007 1:18:29 PM EDT
Naaaa fuck no... Now living in the Garage, that's another story.

How about if your parents lived with you? I moved my parents in with me when their foundation went out and needs repair but cannot get a contractor anytime soon? Plus mom loves the house as well.

If someone lives with his mother because he is too damn lazy (or too cheap) to live on his own, that is one thing. But if it is because the mother has some sort of medical problem and needs help, that is another. If you can afford to take care of your mother when she needs it and you don't, then words can barely begin to describe what a miserable POS human being you are.

The only problem is that for those that think nothing about living at home with their mother, either for their own convenience or because they are too cheap, they are would not be embarassed by such a thing. In fact, I think that many would be proud of themselves for doing such a thing.

+1
I have a friend who still lives at home at 42. He supports a retired ill mother, father, and his sister.

Personally I would prefer to send them to managed care and live on my own.

Well if you have your own entrance and maybe a hot plate down there.
Then ...no

Do you have those things or does mom have to call you for dinner
Link Posted: 10/9/2007 1:23:05 PM EDT
I lived at home until I was 25. I was planning to move out on my own a couple of years earlier, and I could feel the need to do it. But my mom convinced me to stay there until I had enough money to buy a house rather than blowing it on rent.

But then I met my wife and we decided to get married. I moved out pretty quick.

You should move that old bitch down into the basement, and you take over the upstairs.
Link Posted: 10/9/2007 8:41:16 PM EDT
I just wish I could keep her out of my stuff.. And for gods sakes knock before entering the restroom!!
Link Posted: 10/9/2007 9:08:16 PM EDT
It would embarrass me more that I never got laid....
Link Posted: 10/9/2007 9:18:31 PM EDT
I left home at 18, and never looked back...

same here. I moved out a week before I graduated high school.
Link Posted: 10/9/2007 10:10:05 PM EDT
Yes, I would kill myself for failing at life.

Good god. Hanging out with her for Thanksgiving dinner is hard enough...

If I had to live with my mom, past the age of 17, I'd have rode my bycycle off a cliff by now.
Link Posted: 10/9/2007 10:24:01 PM EDT
I wouldnt be able to show my face in public.
Link Posted: 10/9/2007 10:31:47 PM EDT
Does she throw away your porn?

If so, borrow some of your dad's.

Living with your parents can reap great financial rewards.


However, it does tend to cut down on business in the nookie department.

Depends.

Not if one of us was sick and needed someone around.

But then an important question is "how much rent could I charge her?

One advantage is how they get hard of hearing. No more "Nothing, Ma".

Disadvantage: When she claps her hands, my lights go out, too.

I'm 38. My Mom is 72. I would have no problem with moving into her home to help care for her has she got older. She's Mom, after all.
