Parents treating you like a slave ?

Well now that someone mentioned it, I do realize that my parents are treating me like some kind of slave. They call on me to do nearly everything. Some of the things I have to do are understandable, but most are not! Such as telling me to turn off the television simply because I they can't find the remote and neither one of them wants to get off their butt to manually turn it off. Am I the only one whose parents are like this ?

Well if I had a 20 year old living at home I would very likely do what ever it takes to get him out on his own. Perhaps they are just trying to make it uncomfortable for you to be there, and speaking of which, Why are you still there,? Remember it is their house their rules. When you get your own place it then becomes your house and you still get to turn off the TV.

WHOAA, I never thought of it that way... hmm perhaps they are doing this on purpose.The reason why I'm 20 and still living at home is because I'm currently in college. I don't think I can afford to pay for my rent as well as pay for college at the same time. I do get scholarship awards, by they are only enough to pay for my tuition and not the rent fees. I could opt. to get a student loan, but I figured, if I could live at home for free for 4 years while I'm still in college, then y not? But u really made a good point. I never really thought of that.
