15 Things That Happen When You Move Back In With Your Parents As An Adult

Whether it's because we've graduated from uni or because we can't afford the horrendous price of rent, at some point or another most of us move back home with our parents as adults.

There's free food

Free heating

Basically, you just don't give a shit about the dollar

You no longer have to listen to your housemates having sex

The house is permanently clean

And you don't even have a cleaning rota!

And your washing gets ironed by the ironing fairy
