Boomerang Brats

The author of “The Benefits Of Being A Boomerang Kid” lists three reasons that full-grown adults should continue to force their parents to support them and, consequently, avoid contributing to the economy and society at large.

On the top of his list, spending Mom and Pop’s money instead of his own.

“Saving Up- With no rent or utilities, you can build up your nest egg as long as you’re disciplined.”
