    the amount she's asking for is within about $100 of normal bay area rent... and bay area heads know how much that is... ugh:spent:
    and yes, it is a reason to move closer to all my friends...

    I had to pay rent the day I turned 16. It was $20 per week. As I got older it got bumped up. When I moved out it was at $150 a month. But I understood the need for it cause moms needed help with the bills. And I ate about $300 bucks in groceries a month to make up for it. She said the grocery bill dropped that much when I move out.

    here's the thing that is making me angry about the whole situation... i work, but it's minimal, and it isn't set pay- it varies every week... but anyways, i end up borrowing about $20 a week from my mom, but that's it... i pay for most of my gas/started biking more so i don't need gas, and i don't eat any of her food... all i get out of living here is that i don't pay rent basically... it's not like she's gonna be saving money when i leave... this is lame...

    seriously man, living with 2 people doubles the cost of living alone. Shit just adds up, electricity, water... all that shit.

    yeah, i realize i'm probably coming off really spoiled and whiny sounding... but i've moved out before and was fine... i moved back cuz i went back to school... what i was trying to say, was that my mom will be doing almost nothing but profiting off of what i give her, and i just figure, if i'm shelling out so much cash, and it's so close to normal rent, why not shell out a little extra for my own room-- better yet one that's in a town i like... i'm already willing to eat dumpstered food and mooch other people's electricity, so i don't have that much to lose...

    Dude , im going through the exact same shit , and im pissed off about it . we just moved too , far away from my friends and shit . and she says i gotta pay rent . so im like fuck , why the hell should i , the only reason i moved with her to hr bf place was bc she begged me to . and they make more than enopugh money between them . i could see b4 when my sis had to pay bc we needed it . but now she's just gonna be profiting , while im losing . and its very aggravating . so im faced with moving out.......which is gay . bc im just starting school , which i cant afford , and fuck . what kind of parent want to see there child in hardship , she should be making it easier for me by letting me save the money i earn . but no , she wants me to give it to her , for nothing . fuckin shit i hate being old .
