call me a jerk, but...

I just don't get people who are in their 20's and spend a bunch of money on their car and are proud of it but still live at home with their parents.

At what point do you grow up and move out?

I remember back when I had little to no financial responsibilities. It was fun.

QFT. When I lived at home I drove a 10 year old car, spent 90% of my money on my college tuition and the rest on going out with friends etc.

Re: call me a jerk, but...

i just dont get why people have to worry about other peoples lives or what they do with there hard earned (if they earn it) money.

at what point do they stop worrying about others and start worrying about theirs?

I believe the reason a majority of 20-year olds still live at home and don't pay for their car is because their parents are loaded and the kid lacks any maturity or self-respect.

Re: call me a jerk, but...

LOL my parents never bought me much of anything and i havnt lived with them since i was 16, but i dont resent them or others that are more fortunate than myself.

i find it less mature to seek out validation for what can accurately be called envy, or boredom lol.

how dare these 20 year old kids spend money on a car thats aimed at that exact demographic, lunacy :P
