    ^Doesn't really appear to be much of one. Deadbeat kid who wants to continue to sponge off of parents. Parents stupid enough to take it to the courts, rather than just beating him to a pulp, taking his keys, and tossing him to the curb.

    Sad and I expect many in similar fix if not at the courts.

    A whole generation to be worse off than parents an unwilling to give up a soft/free nest for the harsh realities of v competitive rental market of major hubs, in NYC London and Sydney folks are paying over half their income for inferior insecure digs.
    I used to have a job at a calendar factory.
    I got the sack because
    I took a couple of days off.

    ^One of my kid brother's sons pays US$7500 a month, plus utilities, for a small, 3-bedroom apartment in San Francisco. He has 5 roommates....with food and basic amenities, each is out over $1500 a month just for basic lodging. Fortunately, they're all fairly recent graduates, so it's like they never left the dorm.

    1970/80s era wages, 2018 era prices = lots of adult kids(and their children) living with parents. I know the feeling.

    "We as a nation must undergo a radical revolution of values. We must rapidly begin the shift from a “thing-oriented” society to a “person-oriented” society. When machines and computers, profit motive and property rights are considered more important than people, the giant triplets of racism, materialism, and militarism are incapable of being conquered." ~ Martin Luther King Jr., April 1967
