The people who supposedly birthed you but with whom you feel no attachment. They may often share their living courters with you and ocassionly toss you a buck or two for the bus or tell you "i bought mac and cheese...you can handle that for tonight, right?" but don't feel like family because they seem like they are just there.
Differentiation may be shown by using 'male' or 'female' as a prefix of the term.
ex. male parental unit or female parental unit
a cop who is having a bad day and feels the need to make others miserable
I really didn't do anything illegal, it was just a case of burnt bacon.
An individual who chooses to live either on the streets or where ever she/he is at the moment. These people are often travelers (drifters); hippies who know that even though it is sometimes slightly uncomfortable you may live in Amerika without paying taxes and other advantages that are deemed natural; punks or even political refugees.
And it's totally free though illegal in most areas, so watch out for pigs that will want to hassel you. (You aren't human in Amerika unless you pay their taxes).
These punk squatters I once knew squatted because they were touring with bands 9 monthes out of the year. When not in a van going to the next city you can easily couch surf.
