A 41-year-old man revealed that his parents have paid his rent for the past seven years.
Not only that, but Brint Davy, from Austin, Texas, also revealed that he didn't have a job or savings, adding that he refuses to work for anything that is 'beneath' him.
Davy appeared on an episode of Caleb Hammer's Financial Audit podcast on YouTube in April, where he, on quite a few occasions, clashed with the host.
During the conversation, Davy explained how he is thousands of dollars in debt after taking out a few short-term payday loans in recent years.
This led to some heated conversations on the podcast as Hammer slammed his 'immature' decision to pay for non-essential items while his parents continued to pay his rent while he's unemployed.
When the host asked Davy what he does for a living, he made quite the eye-opening statement.
"Too many things. I don't even know really. I'm just hustling every day basically because I have been blacklisted from most jobs," he explained.
"I have a criminal background. I told Governor Abbott on Twitter that I would eat his heart and that solicited a big reaction."
Because of this, Davy says he was subsequently arrested and spent four days behind bars on terror hold.
Despite that happening in 2018, the incident still impacts Davy to this day as it's apparently impacting his ability to get a job.
He said on the podcast that he's been left 'freaked out' by his employment status.
"My savings are gone. I'm mostly dependent upon my parents. They pay my rent. I know it sucks but they're really nice," he said.
Davy's parents cover his $1,500 monthly rent, though he will not rush into any job despite his financial problems.
He also explained how he will refuse to take a job that is 'beneath him' because he says that 'something better is going to come along and I just know it'.
When Hammer suggested that he look into becoming a driver for Lyft or Uber, he said that he could 'already see it as a dead end', adding: "I don't like to waste time."
Davy continued: "How long do you think I'm going to last there until I raise an issue?
"I just know somebody's gonna be like 'oh you think you're a smart kid' and I am."
Hammer continued to suggest that Davy could apply for 'career jobs' as well as cut down on unnecessary expenses, like the subscriptions, however, he felt that the conversation had not sunk in because of his 'immaturity'.
To which Davy hit back, saying that his show is not that 'unique', adding: "If you call me a baby, I'm gonna critique you because I'm a critic too."
Hammer concluded that he 'hopes you make sacrifices' and 'bring in some money now and take care of the situation'.
