That was my first thought, too. When my brother graduated from college, he was offered a great job with a major company about 4 hours drive away. He had lived at home all through college and my mother pitched a fit when he wanted to move away, wondering why he couldn't take a job closer. I'm sure part of the attraction of the job WAS that it was 4 hours away. My mother didn't have many friends and was difficult to get along with, so having children trapped at home fulfillled unmet needs they shouldn't have been responsible for.

Exclamation Mom is still Complaining about Everything I do

This morning I got up and did my daily chores around the house I always feed our pets and leave their plates outside so they can eat the remains later on but for some reason my mom right away says "Don't forget to pick up the plates and clean them out" even though this whole week I would leave the plates outside for a few hours time before cleaning them, and yet my mom goes and gets the plates and ends up cleaning them as well as clean the kitchen up.

It's like come on you complain that I'm not doing my job but yet your doing my job for me? Then you complain some more? She ends up telling me "Well I don't like dirt I don't like seeing everything all dirty you need to clean up everything right away".

Even though I didn't clean up anything until she left for work the last few days and she didn't complain until today. Then she has the nerve to tell me to go look for a job and then 5 minutes later tells me not to worry about finding a job. It's like WTF.

Don't take this the wrong way, but I find your relationship with your mother rather strange for someone your age (aren't you in your mid/late 20s?). Is there a reason why you don't live on your own and don't have a job? As long as you are living with your mother, you have to live by her rules. And if she's paying your bills as well, cleaning up after yourself is the least you could do.

Yeah I do clean up after myself and do my chores and whatever else she says. But today she just complained whereas the other days she was fine and didn't complain.

And I have been applying to jobs just haven't heard back.
