Parents Pay Son $250,000 To Leave And Never Come Back

Grown children returning to the nest after failing to achieve flight on their own has become fairly common in today’s challenging economic environment. According to the Mirror, this man’s parents want the nest back for themselves, and will pay a pretty penny to make it happen.

An unidentified and unemployed man has been posting on Reddit about a dilemma he is currently facing. It seems that his parents have offered him $250,000 to hit the road, with the condition that he not return or contact them again. He notes that his relationship with his parents has always been difficult, and things became even more strained once his brother died in a tragic accident.

"I never wanted to cause any trouble but I just couldn’t take it anymore and eventually I couldn’t put up with the abuse any longer. I didn’t do anything radical, I just started talking back and standing up for myself," he writes.

He would head off to college and things would seem to get better, but when he moved back in, things would get worse. He’s also been struggling to find a job, so his parents came up with a solution that they thought was a win-win.

"Last week my parents told me I have a month to move out and not contact them again," the man wrote.
