Dude. It's almost 2012. The "housewives must cook" got torn out of the manual sometime in the early 70's.

I think it's totally normal to be irritated to live with your parents, especially as an adult. It's what drives young adults out of the nest to find their own lives. Whether your parents are lazy and inconsiderate is irrelevant, because you're at an age where they don't owe you anything. Move out!

LOL...ain't it great when you've worked your butt off, bought your own home, and earned the priviledge of being able to say, "My house, my rules, I can do whatever I want, whenever I want to and it ain't nobody's business but mine!! If you don't like it, get the heck out." I also find it hysterical that the people who generally have issues with the term, "My house, my rules" are those who are having to live with someone else's rules, under someone else's roof!" Those words feel a whole lot different when they're YOUR house and YOUR rules.

A little off topic but I had to laugh remembering how my 86 year old mother - who was living with us at the time- told me "The first thought you should have the minute you wake up is what you are going to fix for supper".
I think she caught me at 6 p.m. home from work staring into the freezer with a puzzled look on my face.

I guess I don't understand your problem.
1. You are 25 years old.
2. You live with your Father and Step-Mother, and don't like them.

Get a life, and move out. Problem solved.

OP, I think that your folks need to give you opportunities to please them since they can't seem to please you.

I'm 25 and can't stand my parents.

Sounds normal to me. Need to be on your own and run your own life without $ from parents.

Time to move on. Nothing anywhere says they have to live to suit you. Happy apartment hunting.

Only reason I will feel bad is because my parents are out of shape and the only way they can "do for themselves" is have outsiders to do what I won't be around to help like yard-work, stupid christmas lights, fix a iphone all these gadgets I could care less about etc. Father is 54 and fat and stepmom is 45ish and can barely walk up stairs let alone run a household. The funniest thing is that in my culture parents are suppose to live with their son, but I almost want nothing to do with them. I want to be near my real mom who I've always been closer with but had to move.
When I was in my twenties (long before the housing boom), it was unusual for someone in that age group to own a home. Young people rented and didn't worry about "wasting their money". It was the natural order of things. I moved out at 19, and I couldn't afford much of anything, but that was my choice. You have to make choices in life as to what's most important to you. You can't just sit around complaining and wanting to have it all.
