In order to contrast their cooler colored clothing, just about everything in the house ended up featuring warm colors.

So will they repaint the house when the seasons change and they switch to warmer clothes? Wink Smile

I'm honestly impressed with how blunt Hunter is with his rebuttal. I can respect that in a person. Beats the heck out of just dancing around a sensitive topic.

While moving out is an option, it's rarely the best in situations like this, for a number of reasons.

Most importantly, it doesn't solve the issue. He'll still have a job his mother doesn't approve of. Forcing the issue like this (without resolving the actual conflict) could, in fact, even make the situation worse. His mother may feel slighted that her opinion doesn't matter. Hunter may feel compelled to further distance himself from the conflict, thus avoiding contact with his mother. Worse yet, his brother may feel that his (obviously beloved) sibling has abandoned him. Generally a whole string of bad possibilities.

Ignoring those, however, is a slew of other issues. At the forefront is financial. Hunters modeling job is likely part time. He simply wouldn't be able to support himself with it. Even if he could, that's a heck of a first step, particularly in a college town where he'd be competing for rent against students who often have the financial backing of their parents.

He's also likely a student (as demonstrated by Cat's random slushie encounter). Juggling work, school, and finding a place to live can significantly hamper ones grades. All told, Ronnie and Dawn have both performed admirably thus far, but their experience isn't necessarily typical.

All told, moving out because of an argument over one's part-time job should definitely not be your first option. It should be much closer to a last. And if you reach that point, it's likely to be because of a much more serious underlying issue that manifests (among other ways) as a conflict with his choice of work.

Embarrassment aside, Hunter has been modeling for an art class for almost a year? Unless he's exploiting a clause that makes him adjunct faculty, that's no job. It'll do for pocket money until something else comes along. However, if Hunter is trying to make a career of this, he's sadly mistaken. His mother has the right idea: light a fire under this underachiever until he starts putting his talents to use. Even the burger-flipper jobs at least offer a work history. The number one criterion personnel managers look for is attendance. Goofballs who skip workdays on a whim are summarily rejected, whereas those who show up consistently are attractive.

Plus, of course, Hunter's mother is negotiating from a position of strength: her house, her resources, her rules. Otherwise, Hunter can have his independence ... in a cardboard box on the riverbank.
