My teen is only 13 so I'm not charging her rent, but I have a friend in this situation and she charges 25% of her 20 year old son's take home pay. He's had a few different jobs and this is working well for both of them.
In Kansas City on the Kansas side the area code is 913, and if you're calling from the Missouri side you have to dial the area code with no 1 in front. I wonder how many false 911 calls that precipitates.

We haven't lit ours yet this fall...

I mean this gently, but it would not be the OP's fault if someone else was menaced by this man, no matter what action she does or doesn't take. It would be this man's fault.
That sounds so frustrating! Regarding the bread crusts, I cut them off for my 5 year old and stick them in a baggie in the freezer. When I need bread crumbs or croutons I use the crusts.
Would your son consider no tie shoe laces?
We have a gas fireplace and turning it on makes the house feel overheated quickly. I live in Kansas. I don't know how much gas it uses or if it is efficient. We use it sparingly because we don't like being too warm!
