Is it normal my family pushes me away

Due to the high rent in my city, my family lives in a small apartment and my daughters sleep in the living room. I come home everyday from a hard days work & all I ask is to watch the game, and my daughters KNOW it comes off at 12. (The tv in the living room is much bigger than the one in my room) My oldest (19) is always yelling about her privacy & how she has work early in the morning even though I know shes up probably up texting at that time anyway. It pisses me off that I can’t just watch the game in peace. Why dont they just put the covers over their heads!?

Is it normal that I have to fight for the tv with my teenagers or does anyone get a smoother experience?

Is It Normal?

  • Dude you're the man of the household, don't let your 19 year old daughter treat you like this. It's time for her to be on her own anyway. She needs to get away from the TV at 12 on the dot. If I did what shes doing my dad would beat my ass, but at 19 I was alreadty on my own anyway.

    • Agree. She shouldn't be the one making orders in the house. But he should also be considerate when they're sleeping in the living room.

      • I actually missed that part when i was reading it. I didnt realize that was his daughters room. That is a bit shallow to watch it in there if shes sleeping in there. But to be fair she does need to move out.

  • You should watch the game on the TV in your room so your adult children who work can get some shuteye.

  • You could put the big TV in your room. Do y'all split the bills?

  • Well you do have em in the lounge, There is the first mistake. You don't have a garage, office, some other space for them. You say you are all working, get another rental with another room. Maybe get out the city a bit. Should be plenty of transport around.

    If I was trying to sleep and someone put the tv on I would probably kick it in, although I find a tv on helps me sleep
