After drunken spat, son torches parents’ house

More and more kids are living with their parents into adulthood these days.

This guy makes a strong case against it. Kandal police said our 31-year-old protagonist had been out for a tipple that turned into a nasty drunk when he returned home to his parents’ Ta Khmau district house.

An argument broke out and, perhaps feeling he hadn’t gotten the better of it, the son settled matters the old-fashioned way, by grabbing a can of oil and burning down the house.

Luckily, no one was injured, leaving him eligible for Son of the Year voting.
