Not even close. You should try living somewhere to which UPS or FedEx won't deliver.
The great privatized options to USPS actually use USPS to deliver those packages. And if something gets sent back to a distribution center, good luck just going and picking it up unless you're fortunate enough t...

Honestly, the US is pretty unique in the concept that once a child reaches the age of 18 or 22 it's time to move out.
If you're unattached and have a job in the same town as your parents, it makes good financial sense. There may be minor sacrifices in independence, but it's really not as hard as...
