If Mom and Dad saw me having $1000 in checking they INSIST I take them to dinner everynight, buy this that at Home Depot, Walmart, JoAnns, Michael's stores, Fry's food, Safeway.

401,

I don't understand this at all. I suppose all of us have different relationships with our parents, and while mine would never greedily look at my bank accounts, even if they did, I could and would say no (unless they needed something more than I did).

Why are you in thrall to your mom and dad?
