5. It's the most fun way to hang out with your parents
Spending time with your parents can be a real downer, especially when Dad is always bringing up how dumb your tattoos are (uh, sorry Dad, but it actually IS funny if Calvin is peeing on a Calvinist document!). But playing quarters with dear old Dad can be a good thing, as bonding with the 'rents can mean improved communication, and make it easier to lean on them in times when you need it. Like the next day, when you're hungover, and you need them to buy you breakfast.
