    Hmmm... it would appear that husband is also somewhat delayed. :tongue:

    Janet, they don't show him or his room. It's just Kathie Lee Gifford and someone else chatting about it.

    Well then, how are we supposed to know what it looks like? One mans messy room is another mans just untidy room! I mean really!

    To me it's more about the fact that he threw a plate at his dad and showed him a had to have felt scared enough to call 911.

    Maybe it's time for the 28yo to move out...sounds like he has two jobs going.

    I wish a flying plate of food and making a fist was all we ever had had to deal with, lol. Luckily, my difficult children raging behavior has ceased. :D

    Star* call 911

    Another word -

    OMG are you serious - wait that's 4 words.

    Four words

    OMG are you serious?

    But then again I look into the office next to me where a 28 soon to be 29 year old COLLEGE graduate with a major in CUllinary management (whatever that is) sits - and is "the pooper" and lives with Mom and Dad and I think.....ah - they should have done the story on the pooper.

    I think the "pooper" is the one who leaves...erm...aromatic evidence behind him, after visits to the men's room. I think Star's words were "not fit for man nor beast", or something to that effect.

    As for Living-at-home dude...I really do think that it takes some people a lot longer to finish cooking than it does others. And having enabling parents just doesn't help matters.

    My difficult child-brother lived with our difficult child-parents until he was nearly 30, when he finally moved out at the insistance of his then-fiance.

    I got endless amounts of grief from them for moving out when I was 17 (in Ontario, you can leave home at 16). They pressured me to come back, offered me money, a car, all sorts of was really dysfunctional. I just wanted to grow up and do my own thing, and they were desperate to stop me.
