    Good for you, Mom!
    The assumption that he can move in and out at will, using your home as a free place to live (and you as slave labour!) is one many kids have (my own included).
    As far as I’m concerned, when they’re out, they’re out, unless the ASK if they can come back TEMPORARILY – then conditions apply.
    I also love the term ‘reality intern’, especially as even when he was in his own house, he wasn’t in the real world . .

    I missed a lot of “Jeff grows up” strips. At what point in his development did he become such a jerk?

    @Pacopuddy

    What most parents I know just couldn’t bring themselves to do – especially in today’s economy – however, I notice that dad left it to mom to spell out the new rules. (Doubtless, the “slave labor” risk was a factor.) I also ask.. where is Jeff going to get the 500 bucks?

    If memory serves, after being sent through a crash course to learn Pashto and Dari (two of the native languages in Afghanistan) Jeff’s actual job (aside from his extra-curricular activities) when he was in Afghanistan was as a translator. Jeff may be an idiot, but he’s not without some abilities. As incredible as it may seem, Jeff appears to have an aptitude for languages. If he would develop this talent Jeff would have a big advantage in today’s job market.
