Brandon is unemployed, lives at home and says he likes to wear superhero costumes and go on vigilante missions. The 35-year-old, who at one time had a record deal and potential rap career, says he’s struggled to get to the top of his career, but it just hasn’t happened yet.
His parents say he’s a lazy moocher who sleeps all day and only wants to work in management.
“Why should somebody give you that job when someone else has worked themselves up through the ranks, earned credibility, gotten experience, demonstrated that they have the skill and ability,” Dr. Phil asks Brandon in the video above.
