    Default turned out

    Hi

    A lady was sitting at the table. Next to her was her son and some stranger who arrived in the town.

    She said: It's a nice town, good place to raise a family.

    Her son exclaimed sarcastically: Hell, yeah. I mean look how I turned out.

    What does he mean by "turned out"?

    What I became.
    The kind of man/person I became.

    ....
    I am baking cookies. I hope they turn out well. (I hope that they will be good/delicious/etc.

    You were reading a book yesterday. How did the story turn out? (How did it end? What happened in the end?)
