Nothing.

He's retired living off pensions from years of
employment. Bless his heart but he's wasting
my good years.

Become a waiter at a restaurant, you can make $35k at least. Or get a job on a cruise ship, your hours will be very long, but you get free room and board, so you'll be able to save a lot.

You are doomed to be homeless if you don't get out the couch and get to work.


If you do... you'll be fine.

Nah...there's still time.

But people have been out there for years...you're playing catch up.

You can't work hard (time), so start working smart.

You are not homeless if your sleeping on your dads couch and getting kicked out would be the best thing for you. Your dad has become your enabler and as long as you can watch TV and eating Cheeto's you will remain unemployed. The best thing your dad could do is too hand you a eviction notice.

How are you doomed to be homeless, if you are living with your father? Is he going to be homeless too?
