what is it they are making you go to that your trying to get out of?

Adults of all ages, esp married and /or employed ones, are constantly making up stuff to get out of things they don't want to do whether its something the spouse wants you to do or something you don't want to do at work.

lol well it sounds to me that all of you people think that 18 year olds have pretty crappy jobs. i walk out of my workplace with about 200 bucks a night plus a paycheck, while still going to high school, having my own place with plenty of food and all the necessities. i still have plenty of luxury money and time to spend doing what i want. move out if youre ready

Pay more attention in school, don't be such a thorn in their side. What is this horrible thing your PARENTS want you to go to? School? I'd suggest it.

You have the right to move out, pay your own bills and do what you want. Or, you can accept your parents terms and allow them to continue paying your bills. It's, entirely, your choice.

You're 18. You can legally own property, purchase tobacco and enter into contracts. You absolutely have the right to say "I'm not going somewhere when I don't want to" but your parents, whom you still depend upon for money, food and protection from the elements, retain the right to make you very sorry for saying so. The reality is that legal adulthood does not mean never having to say "by your leave" to anyone. Quite to the contrary, you are likely to have bosses to answer to for a long time to come (maybe forever).

What does making it for a few days without your family prove? It takes more than a few days to succumb to dehydration...
