An Italian man is so concerned about his parents developing empty nest syndrome that he's helpfully refused to move out even though he's 41. The Venetian couple say their son has a job, but he won't leave and expects his mother to do his laundry and cook for him. Now they've hired lawyers and told their son he must move out in the next six days, or they'll ask the court for an order of protection. "We cannot do it any more," said the father. "My wife is suffering from stress and had to be hospitalized ... He demands that his clothes be washed and ironed and his meals prepared. He really has no intention of leaving." Since he leaves the house for work, perhaps they should try changing the locks.
