A man is upset his roommate’s girlfriend won’t
cover living expenses while she lives with them.
He went on Reddit’s “Am I the A******” forum for advice.
The man is roommates with his childhood friend.
Things were going well until the pandemic when
his roommate’s girlfriend became unemployed
and started living with them — rent-free.
“One day, at the beginning of the second
quarantine, I talked to both about [her] paying
her part of the rent and the bills and to split
them in three,” the Reddit poster explained.
“My roommate started arguing with me
about how careless I am about his girlfriend’s
situation, [because] she’s unemployed”.
The Reddit poster dropped it until
six months later when the girlfriend
got a job. But the roommate’s
response was no different.
“My roommate said that she already was
helping at home by doing his chores and buying
his food. I replied that it didn’t help me at all”.
The Reddit commentariat thought the
roommate was out of line. “Move out, they’re taking
advantage of you,” one person wrote.
“She should contribute if she is living there
full time and has a job,” another said
