ROME (Reuters) - A Sicilian mother took away her 61-year-old son's house keys, cut off his allowance and hauled him to the police station because he stayed out late.
Tired of her son's misbehavior, the retiree in the central Sicilian city of Caltagirone turned to the police to "convince this blockhead" to behave properly, La Sicilia, one of Sicily's leading newspapers, reported on Thursday.
The son responded by saying his mother did not give him a big enough weekly allowance and did not know how to cook.
"My son does not respect me, he doesn't tell me where he's going in the evenings and returns home late," the woman was quoted as saying. "He is never happy with the food I make and always complains. This can't go on."
Police helped the squabbling duo make up and the two returned home together, with the son's house keys and daily allowance restored.
Most Italian men still live at home late into their 30s, enjoying their "mamma's" cooking, washing and ironing.
Diaper time. Funny.
I bet I'll live at home that long...it just sounds so much easier than, you know, going out and dating and getting married and having my own life and stuff (o:
Where oh where have the days of arranged marriages gone?
lol, they stll exist in some corners of the world.
Bangladesh for the win!
Hey, thanks for the zinger appropriate to so many baby boomers; but especially, thanks for the singer!
You're welcome! She's great, isn't she? :)
Oh, she's lovely, down to the last lingering chord of a song!
Head up on the *nod* toward the pretty!
I don't know why I take it into my head to, well, y'know, beHAVE!
I guess it's no secret, how I soar, or sync, over varying degrees of loveliness.

Huh. As far as I know, most kids these days are more afraid of the cops telling their mothers, not the other way round ;)
Oh man that video! I remember changing my sister's diaper all the time and I never once had that reaction. (I was probably 8 or 9. We're seven years apart.) Those men are wusses!
LOL> I was really amused. I know plenty of men that hange diapers and it's no big deal, but these kind of reactions really make me giggle.
Why don't those hot Italian chicks come over here and find real men?
I'll take a hot, little, 19 year old Italian girl!
