          How 23-Year-Old Rationalizes Being Unemployed, Living With Parents And ‘Smoking Weed’ Every Day

          VIDEO

          June 21, 2017

          Justin is jobless, lives with his parents and says he smokes weed every day. He says that a minimum wage job is “for suckers,” and he is “worth so much more money than flipping burgers.” So Justin doesn’t work and stays home most of the day.

          TELL DR. PHIL YOUR STORY: Fed up with an entitled 20-something?

          The 23-year-old says his parents give him money and provide for his, his girlfriend’s and their daughter’s basic needs — and he blames them for the person he has become.

          “My parents did not teach me a work ethic at all,” he says. “My mom coddles me more than I’ve ever witnessed any mother coddle a child. She treats me like her baby even to this day.”

          Dr. Phil asks Justin to explain his behavior. “Tell me how you think this through that you don’t hold yourself accountable for pulling your own weight and being a contributing member of society,” he says.
