She Threatened to Kick Her Son’s Girlfriend Out of the House. Was She Wrong?
by Matthew Gilligan
I think parents who let the significant others of their children move in must have hearts of gold…and maybe a screw loose!
Because you know there are bound to be some issues!
So is this woman a jerk for what she said to her son’s girlfriend who is living in her house?
Check out this story and let us know what you think in the comments.
AITA for telling my son’s girlfriend if she treats my daughter like that again she’ll be out of the house?
“I’m a single mother, and I live with my two kids, Adam (M24) and Zoe (F15).
Adam pays me rent, but pays significantly less than he would be paying if he went to go live elsewhere, even with roommates. Rent is very expensive in our area and he’s living with me whilst working full-time so he can save up for a deposit on a house.
Around a month ago, Adam asked if his girlfriend of 10 months, Millie (F23), could stay in his room as she doesn’t get along with her parents and was struggling to find somewhere to live. I agreed because they’re both adults and I’ve met Millie quite a few times and I thought she was a really nice girl.
At first it was going fine, but last week something happened. I came home from work a few hours early, and I walked in on Millie yelling in Zoe’s face and swearing at her. Millie went silent when she noticed me and I asked what the hell was going on. Millie ran off into her and Adam’s room and Zoe was crying. I asked Zoe what happened and she said that she accidentally spilled pepsi on Millie’s jeans and that she tried to apologise but Millie blew up at her.
I knocked on the door and told Millie we need to talk. I asked her for her side of the story, Millie accused Zoe of spilling her drink on purpose and pretending it was an accident, and said that they are very expensive jeans. I told Millie that I would get Zoe to wash her jeans for her.
Millie had a blank look. I asked Millie what she thinks could help make things right, to which she said “I dunno”. I told her that I understand she’s annoyed but she doesn’t get to treat my minor daughter like that, and that if she does it again she’ll be out, if she has another problem involving Zoe that isn’t an emergency, she should contact me before taking it into her own hands.
I left it at that. Zoe washed her jeans and gave them back to her clean and dry the next day. Millie told Adam what happened and they’re both accusing me of being unfair, and said my comment about Millie being out was abusive. I think what I did was perfectly fair.
I told my older sister about what happened and asked what she thinks, and she said I’m being too harsh on Adam and Millie, and said I need to chill.”
Take a look at what Reddit users had to say about this.
This reader said she’s NTA and now she’s learned a thing or two about Millie…
And this person also said she’s NTA and that Adam and Millie might have to move out.
Another Reddit user said that she needs to remember this is her house and that means it’s her rules.
