    This is the second thread I've read of yours complaining about your parents, you don't seem to like them very much. I'm sure they have done many things for you so just show some respect.

    They gave a lot growing up and spent a lot of effort and money of course on me so if they want me to go get them an Oreo and a glass of milk then it's only a small fraction of what they have given me so I think it's worth it

    Yes, of course.. I love her and her hugs. I tell her that I love her and that she's beautiful once a month
    If I was your friend and you said to me, " you are beautiful once a month" I would not really consider that to be a compliment. Just saying.

    I love both my parents I do respect them I just think they should do simple things for themselves, they're not in a wheelchair, bedbound or elderly.

    If they needed help with something hard like carrying heavy things I would happily help them.

    You've said you don't work, do they?

    If they do then I would expect you to be doing the majority of cleaning, cooking, washing and gardening. Do you?

    Wait a minute. Can't your parents carry heavy things for themselves ? - you're basically picking and choosing when and when not to help them out, which is wrong. So long as you're without a Job living under your parents roof, you do as your parents tell you and there's no two ways about it.

    Some marvellously ignorant posts in this thread. You don't have to be your parents' servant simply because they brought you up and have done a lot for you.

    It's all about the context. Occasional polite requests are one thing, but thankless demands and laziness don't need to be tolerated just because they're coming from your parents.

    It was an example. If they are not able to do it I would help them. I do not like doing simple things for them that they can easily do themselves.

    You will be wishing you had helped your parents out with the smallest of things when they are no longer around.

    Why do you only cook for yourself just because other people can cook? The sheer narrow-minded, egocentric selfishness of your posts in this thread just astounds me. Are you real?

    That sounds like a waste of resources, imagine spending all that heating and water for just one person when you could have used the same amount for an entire family.

    If you don't have a job then your parents are paying for you, bringing them a drink or turning on the light would be the least you could do.

    You do it out of basic respect because of all they've done for you. After raising you, spending money on you to feed, wash and clothe you, not to mention put a roof over your head, you can't even do a basic demand from them because it will take up 1-2 minutes max from your life? What a disrespectful, selfish brat you and the person who created this thread must be

    Picking and choosing when to help people isn't 'wrong': it's exactly how everyone else behaves in every other sphere of life. Similarly, it's pretty ridiculous to claim that you're obliged to do whatever the hell your parents tell you just because you live with them. Rudeness is rudeness and it doesn't become magically okay simply because you're letting the victim live with you.

    What sort of family are you if you only cook for yourself?
    I live in a nuclear heterosexual family that consists of one father one other and three children.

    I do cook for my family but I prefer to cook for myself as I know what I like in my food.

    What the actual F*k are you on about. Your parents asking for a drink, or getting you to bring the remote or phone over (no matter how many times they ask) isn't rudeness you imbecile! And yes, picking and choosing is wrong when it comes to your parents. Your parents come before anything else
