          ‘This Is Not What I Pictured When I Graduated High School,’ Says 45-Year-Old Who Lives With Mom


          April 17, 2019

          Jeff says after his marriage and career as an aircraft mechanic fell apart, he had no choice but to take his children and move back in with his mother, Janet. That was 16 years ago, and Jeff and his kids have been living rent-free in Janet’s home ever since.

          Jeff’s sister, Monica, and daughter, Tori, both claim he’s taking advantage of Janet. Janet, who admits she enables her son, says Jeff is “lazy,” but Jeff, who claims he wants to move out of his mother’s home, says he hasn’t been able to get back on his feet.
