Thread Name: BS: Nest - Empty or full?
Subject: RE: BS: Nest - Empty or full?
I have an aquaintance who told his unemployed (by choice) son that, if he wanted to live at home, he'd have to enroll in college rather than using their house as a place to stay between outings with his friends. He did, but dropped out after a week...without telling his father. I also think he kept the refund of the tuition the father had paid. When this was all discovered, son came home one day to find all of his belongings on the front porch in brown plastic bags...and the locks changed. A pretty crude, but effective, way to get the message across. At last report, son had finished college and had a good job...and was living on his own.
