    Last night, my wonderful wife and I made a really good 'batch of spaghetti sauce, that combined with fresh pasta, made a perfect marriage.

    Some of the BEST spaghetti that we've made, in a lonnnnnnnnnng time. (It's always GREAT, though!)

    Our youngest son (24 years old) is a over-the road tractor-trailer driver for Amazon, and still lives at home.

    He was expected home last night, around 11:00 p.m., so, my darlin' wife texted him and said that "there was food in the fridge".

    Long story short, I had put my 'seconds' in a cereal bowl, and covered it with some 'press and seal' plastic, and put it in the fridge, to have for lunch, today. (I prepared a second helping for myself, and realized I really shouldn't eat that much in one sitting, after one bite.)

    The LARGE bowl of "spaghett" was on the top shelf, RIGHT BESIDE my small bowl.

    I opened the fridge to get the milk, to have a bowl of corn flakes, and not only did that "KID" eat my leftovers, he drank all of the milk (almost a whole gallon!) and left about a shot glass amount of milk!!!!!!

    Just before I started this post, he came downstairs and I asked him why he ate my bowl of spaghetti.

    "Well. Your name wasn't on it."

    Ohhhhhhhhh..... how I wish he'd go ahead and sign the papers on that house he's looking at, in King George, VA.

    Sheeeeeesh.

    I feel so much better, now.

    Killing the milk is a junk kicking offense. Tell him to get in the car and get to the store.

    ETA, your 24 YO has a job and is talking to you - you are ahead of the game and the milk is not a huge deal.

    He’s 24 and working long hours. You should have learned this when he was 16 and playing sports

    If it’s food you want to eat later, hide it. Otherwise, the “kid” will find it and eat it

    I have felt the same pain. Mine is just about 27 now. He is out on his own finally. Probably eating more than he makes.

    I blame his parents for raising him that way.

    my daughter would often ask, "daddy, can I eat this (pointing at some food)?"

    I would always tell her, "sweetie, you don't need to ask me if you can eat this or that. Everything in this house is for you"

    Yup. I often tell his Mother that she's to blame. :)

    We raised our kids to have consideration for others, especially since we raised four kids.

    If that is all he has done to irritate you , then you have raised a good kid . He is young and working and trying to move out of the nest . Just as long as he is not one of those rioters , he sounds better than the average 24 year old .

    Well, in his defense, he may have thought the smaller portion was set aside for him...but there's absolutely no excuse for leaving the milk like that...I hate that...just go ahead and finish it, instead of leaving that little bit. Yea, he needs to get to the store and replace that for you.

    Well DAMNNNNNNNNNN... the HORROR of it! :crying:
    If THAT`S the worst your child has done, be grateful and just laugh it off.

    Maybe he will think before going into the fridge again... or maybe not :duel:

    "No, but my name IS on this house, so how about you start paying for rent, food and utilities?"

    my daughter is 2. Every time I eat something, all I hear is “more?” As she points to her mouth. I get to eat about 1/3 of whatever I make when she’s around

    You'll look back on the time you had kids fondly when you're eating spaghetti for the 4th meal in a row because it's hard to scale back the recipe and no one's around to eat the leftovers.

    You'll miss him eating your spaghetti when he's gone.

    My 21 y/o daughter-home from college and working, texts and says that she is at Dairy Queen and asks if I want anything. I say sure and she brings it home. The next day I notice she transferred $4 out of my account to pay for it. :eyebrow:

    Be glad your not feeding his kids too!

    Sounds like a good kid though. Have fun with it and return the favor ASAP!
