Aren't you trying to "severe ties"? Your uncle's nips have the potential for soreness just as much as your parents'. How about taking the bevy of offerings you've been privileged to have and hitting the road to make the rest of the way on your own?
Yeah, but I've always figured that my goal in life was to live in a quaint New England town. I don't really care how it happens. My uncle owns a plumbing company, I wouldn't mind driving around sucking s*** out of the ground to make a living.
