How Living with your Parents is Equivalent to Living in the Hood

Perception is a powerful thing. It can single handedly change your views on aspects of life. Therefore, based on the title I insincerely apology for the comparison if anyone is offended.

Below are 5 examples of how living with your parentals is equal to living in the hood.

Who’s that?”
Nosy people can be found in anywhere, in the hood or not. Choosing to live in places that promote privacy and security is always a plus. Just like living on your own or with a mate of you choosing allows you to be more open to who you bring home.

Plotting for the nights your mom is working late and planning chill sessions when everyone is out of town is all fun. Until you start to view it as release time from your normal curfews. Although age gives you leniecy when you are living with your parents, it doesn’t free you from their judgement.

Noisy neighbors
Living in close proximity with another human whose intention is to only talk to you when you are talking on the phone is provoking. Having thin walls or living next to a porn studio has the same effect.

Missing items
Aka… robberies! No examples are needed.

Dude where’s my car
Running outside to your car only to discover it’s missing always gives me a slight crisis attack. And on occasion noticing that someone has moved it irritates me. The fact that an unwanted codependence on the car exists is what causes this negative reaction. 

You the Crackhead
In my household its me. I get compared to crackhead any time I make an idiotic decision. In my defense, at least I am capable of making my own decisions. 

For one thing, it’s how I know its time to move.

  1. 😂😂😂 I am definitely living in the hood! I basically live with Deebo aka my parents. Everything I have is theirs, my car (that’s in my name and I pay the note, insurance, gas, maintenance), my food, money (sometimes) lol.

  2. I’m a parent of two millennials still living at home. My challenge is balancing their independence and my love and concern for them. Because they are both adults I’ve adopted a generally hands off approach. But I still do enjoy just being with them.
