So after college my mother and sister urged me to move in with her. I believe my mother was upset that we weren't as close as we used to be so she want me to cohabitate. I really didn't want to but I didn't have many options. My dad is a trucker without a place. My mom lives with her employer. So I moved in. It took me a year to find a "job" (that I'm not too proud of). I still work at that job but I'm trying to get a better paying one since a pay cut is coming. Ever since I worked at the job I paid $100 per week to stay at the house. I also buy groceries from time to time and do a chore here and there. But now to get on with my issues.
She's being an (expletive) to me. She complains that I'm not doing the chores right and that she'll fine me for not doing them the way she wants them done. I don't stack dishes to the ceiling or fill up the garbage bag everyday because I'm out and about for a good chunk of the day. I barely eat anything there and when I do I use foam cups and paper plates. I also don't have a room. I have an air mattress that I use in the kitchen. So I pay $400-$500 a month for an air mattress, toilet and shower and I'm chastised for doing chores wrong. Chores that I don't even believe I should do.
I'm thinking about moving. I already have a list of possible apartments. I thought to myself for $100-$200 more I can get my own place and not have to get ordered around. It may be a struggle (especially since I might have to buy insurance, tax season and no furniture) but I think it's worth it. If I cut the daily junk food and subscriptions I may be able to pull thru.
Summary aside I wanted to ask. Do you think I'm in the wrong?
