The eviction, the judge has ruled

https://www.yahoo.com/gma/30-old-ord...opstories.html

Highlights (entire story is just that, but):

*A 30-year-old man .....Michael Rotondo.....had been living rent-free in his parents' Syracuse-area home for eight years....

*....I'm not bothering them by living here,..... "It's little to no cost to them, and considering how much they've harassed me, I think it's the least that they (ie, his parents) should be required to do....

*...By the end of October, Michael Rotondo said his parents were demanding he get a full-time job, health insurance and sessions with a therapist, and ....

* they even gave junior $1100 to move, but he burned it, with *excuses*.


Thoughts....tow his non-running 'Vagen Jetta (news from elsewhere) to a homeless shelter parking lot where he can live in it while seeking employment + engaging in the therapy. Living on the street with other crazies should be quite motivating and make the 5X8+ program look real good!

I always find it comical when older generations complain about younger generations (in particular their own kids)...they're the ones that frickin raised them. You were crappy parents/examples/role models...you made your bed, now lie in it.

That's funny, talk about a parenting failure. You know you were a successful parent if you raise a well adjusted, self helping, contributing kid.

^^^THIS!

Everyone is too scared to say something that may not be politically correct, but this is sooooooo true!

All the entitled brats are raised by someone and think they way they think not because they were BORN THAT WAY, but because that is what they were taught.....I think what has happened over the last few decades is the parents have used the school (ultra liberal) system to raise their kids instead of them raising their kids.

Good work ethic breeds good work ethic.

Honesty breeds honesty.

And the opposite is true as well.

The true irony here is when a parent with a young child goes to jail...and the young child ends up going to the grandparents. I mean, I understand less traumatic going with family...but those grandparents already have one f**k up...how about we give someone else a shot at parenting.

We call these things generational curses.

I know several couples that do foster care and others who have adopted kids and some of the stories about the biological parents are horrifying! Glad some kids are getting a chance to escape that cycle.

I worked with abused and neglected kids for 15 years. When you read their case files it made you want to travel for a bit of vigilante justice. Normally by the time we got the kids in they were so messed up there wasn't much hope in any change. There were some that changed and turned out to be good adults.
