Quaker thinks this is cute
Haha, mom had to get a lawyer to negotiate with her son to clean his room, because her son got a lawyer lol that is just too funny...
Except, no. It's pretty damned stupid, actually. Especially the "on the grounds that I brought you into this world and it's the least you can do" line- really? "I gave birth to you, so the least you could do to thank me is to clean your room?" How about "because I'm your mother, and I said so?" Anyone say this anymore? If not, why not? Anyone else think that this kid can start negotiating his chores when he pays rent?
Anyway, the "problem" between pathetic mom and disgusting jerkwad son is "solved" through a strategic application of the old Food Bribe- "if you agree to clean your room, you'll get a tasteless log of rice, nuts and honey holding the damn thing together." But this isn't super realistic to me- if this kid has grown to be such an obstinate little brat that he'll hire a lawyer to avoid cleaning his room, I'm pretty sure he hasn't had to ask very often for the Food Used To Shut Him Up. If anything, it seems to me that this woman has probably spent most of the last several years shoveling stuff at this kid to keep Peace in the Home. The result is this nasty little toad refusing to clean his room without prepayment.
Gross. But the YouTube commentators like it. Go figure.
