I've seen far too many times (Ursula is the most recent example) where people post here that they have to move in with family because they are experiencing financial hard times, and then when people respond that they should get their finances in order before making any other expensive decisions, they amend this to say that they pay rent in addition to groceries and utilities for the whole family, not just themselves. How does this make sense? How is it cheaper to pay rent AND food and utilities for at least two extra people than it is to pay rent plus food and utilities for just yourselves?
Am I the only one seeing that this makes no sense whatsoever? Either the person posting (yes, Ursula, I'm looking at you) is a big gaadamn liar, or that person can't do simple arithmetic. What gives?
