Overbearing father makes living at home aggravating for his adult son
Dear Abby: I’m a 34year-old man who lives with my father, who is 76 years old. I’m currently without a job, but when I have one, I buy food and whatever else is needed for the house. I believe I’m doing my fair share.
I love my father dearly, but I can’t stand him as a person. He can be very rude and verbally abusive. He has told people we know very personal things about me. When we’re visiting family, if I ask for something to eat or drink, he’ll answer, “No! You don’t need anything.”
Dad played a major role in ruining a relationship with a woman I was dating. I don’t invite any of my new friends over because I know he’ll have something sarcastic to say. He also accuses me of not I keep my mouth shut because I need a place to live, but day by day, more and more, my rage is building, and I want to tell him off. Help, please.
