Well, if I’m so useless, then I guess I’ll just stop helping!

That sounds reasonable, right?

Well, maybe not…

Check out what this young woman had to say and see if you think she’s acting like an *******.

AITA? Mom said I’m useless so I stopped helping.

“I (F20) live at home with my single mother and 5 siblings while I finish university.

I’ll call them A (M23), B (M22), C (M17), D (F15) and E (M12).

She does a lot around the house.

Almost everyday, I wash the dishes, load and unload the dishwasher, vacuum the common areas, drive my younger siblings to and back from school, and cook dinner while also attending uni (university).

I get no help from my mom or siblings, nor do I get any appreciation for what I do around the house.

Last week on Wednesday, I came home late (around 9PM) from uni as I was talking to my teacher after the lecture (my class ended at 7:30PM).

Her mom was not happy…

Once I got home my mom started yelling at me because I wasn’t able to cook dinner, there was dirty dishes in the sink, and my brother A had to pick up my younger siblings from school. I was upset by this but she then said “you’re useless. You don’t help out at all”

And I got mad.

I replied back, “sorry for being useless” and went to my room.

Time to teach her a lesson…

The following day I didn’t drop my siblings off to school which forced my mom to have to do it.

I didn’t make dinner either and I stayed at uni up until they closed the library at 9PM.

I continued to do this and the house is now a mess and my younger siblings have missed a few days of school.

My mom and my other siblings are angry at me.

I’m just wondering,


I feel like I’m not but hearing it from my siblings and mom everyday is getting to me.”

Let’s see how folks reacted on Reddit.
