His Roommates Were Shamelessly Taking Advantage of Him, but He Was Scared to Evict Them Because They Had a Small Child 

A man recently went online to ask for advice on whether he should evict his lazy roommates and their young child. Here’s his story.

It’s a cramped arrangement

“So to give some context, my wife and I have two roommates,” the 27-year-old began. We’ll call the man A and the woman B. They’re 25 and 24, respectively, and they also have a one-year-old son.”

“They went six months without paying me a dime, but I let it slide because I have a heart. I figured there was no reason to kick them and their one-year-old out, as the child had done nothing to deserve homelessness.”

They unfairly accused him

The couple had promised to pay the man what they owed him and had almost done so. At the same time, however, they had started to accuse the man of only caring about himself and never doing anything for anyone else.

They were unhygienic

The man explained that the couple never tidied up after themselves but loved to cook, even though they were no good at it.

The man and his wife would always do the dishes, but their roommates’ poor hygiene meant they now had a fly problem, although his roommates were refusing to pay for fly traps, leaving the man and his wife to clean and buy everything.

B claimed that she couldn’t do any work because she was busy raising her child, but the man argued that her idea of raising her child was to stick her in front of the TV for 10 hours a day.

The man also said that he had been nothing but generous to his roommates. When A sold his car and didn’t buy another, the man and his wife let him share theirs for free, only for A to reset all the radio stations and even manage to burn out one of the seat warmers.

It all got too much

The final straw(s), however, came when the man booked a plumber to come round and look at a leak, only for A to cancel the appointment without permission, as B was feeling sick (she was apparently pregnant again). What’s more, their child had managed to get what looked like root beer all over his cream carpets.

They weren’t taking responsibility

The man was at his wit’s end. His roommates still owed him money, and he’d just discovered that they were trying to remove themselves from the lease (and therefore not be legally obliged to pay anything).

What should he do?

The man asked the internet if it would be wrong to evict a couple with such a young child.

The internet responded

The internet backed the man. “I think the only reason you still haven’t kicked them out is because you feel responsible for their one-year-old,” said one. “Don’t. It is their child.”

“Kicking them out doesn’t guarantee they are homeless,” pointed out another. “An eviction process does take a long time, so that’s plenty of notice for them to prepare their next move.”
