Parents realise son planning to keep living with them after lockdown

THE parents of a 29-year-old man who moved back home for lockdown have realised he has no plans to move out after lockdown. 

Wayne and Theresa Hayes urged their son Liam to leave his flat in London and stay at theirs for the duration in March, but now fear that he is living with them permanently.

Theresa said: “We couldn’t bear to think of him down there in London, in a shared house with frontline workers, so we told him to come home so we’d know he was safe.

“But I came home the other day and he’d had his bedroom redecorated and a TV put on the wall, then he asked if we wanted to ‘go threes in on a breadmaker’.

“I asked how he’s affording his place down there and he mumbled something about ‘short-term rent savings’ and it transpires he’s moved out and put all his stuff in storage. Then he asked when Dad could go and pick it up.

“Does he think parental love is unconditional or something? We don’t want to have sex in the living room so he walks in on us and then has to leave forever. But if we have to, we will.”

Liam Hayes said: “I’m not going to be here forever, I just have to wait until this whole thing blows over and then I’ll be ready to go in two to three years.”
