As triumphant survivors of American schooling, we all know the excitement of graduating high school. Finally! The government can no longer require your butt in a chair every day (they never could capture your spirit). Will you go to college? Up to you! No one can force you to learn any longer. You can travel to Japan, or start working at the local Walmart. You’re free.*
There is a dark side to your spectacular achievement. Unbeknownst to you, another group of people has been counting the days until you earn that diploma. They’re known as “parents.”
Eager for an empty nest, some parents just kick you out. Others put passive-aggressive Post-it notes on the refrigerator or email you “roommate wanted” ads until you get the message.
Whether you end up in a dorm or a low-rent apartment with five roommates, your parents will be living it up in your old bedroom, reveling in all their new space. So, while your parents are busy reading “Celebrate Being an Empty Nester” articles and planning trips to Hawaii, you’ll be unclogging a sink filled with unfamiliar hair and investigating who drank your entire 2-liter Sprite.
As for your belongings…they’ll probably have a grace period, but sooner or later your parents will want them gone along with you. Now they need a place to stay, and where better than a self-storage unit at STORBOX?
This Is Only the Beginning
Your parents raised you right. They taught you the important lessons. Now, repay them by adulting. Get a job. Start doing your own laundry. Don’t buy candy from strangers or invest in time-shares.
And if you’re a high-school graduate who’s been kicked out of the house, never fear—self-storage is here to make things easier. Not all parents are willing to store their children’s cherished goods for years and years (and years). But an inexpensive self-storage unit is always there for your stuff, even if you have to start sleeping on your friend’s couch because your idiot roommate flooded the bedroom.
At STORBOX, our self-storage units are affordable for recent high-school grads, and we provide moving equipment to get you started. Our friendly staff can answer almost any question you throw at them. Call (626) 407-3439 to find out how to keep your possessions safe. Self-storage might be the most secure thing in your life for years to come!
