Teen girl EVICTS family, including pregnant stepsister, after they ask her to give up her room for baby
The Reddit post by ‘u/NoMoreAdvantage' has received over 6K upvotes and more than 800 comments
A teenage girl's reddit post about evicting her family, including her pregnant stepsister at the peak of her pregnancy, has gone viral. The original poster (OP), who goes by the user name "NoMoreAdvantage," shared her story on the r/AmITheA**hole forum on Reddit.
She may have solicited feedback in the reddit community hoping a few people would chime in to ease her conscience and make her feel better about her harsh decision. But she couldn't have expected the overwhelming support she received. Over 6,000 people have upvoted and commented on the popular post.
The original poster (OP) began her story by stating that she shares a home with her dad, stepmom, and stepsister, who is six months pregnant, and that they don't pay rent for it. Her half-brother (from her mother's side) is the owner of the home they currently reside in.
There are three bedrooms in the house. The OP has a larger room than her stepsister, as well as her own bathroom. The OP's parents warned her a few months ago that her stepsister's boyfriend would be moving in with them closer to the baby's due date. With the new addition, they would require one room for the couple and another for the baby. The OP would have to store her belongings in the shed and sleep on the couch at night. The arrangement irritated her greatly.
She spoke to her half-brother about it and he agreed that it was unreasonable. "I asked him if he can just evict my parents so I don't have to deal with my step mom and step sister anymore. My brother suggested that I move in with him so that I won't live there when they serve the eviction notice, as he was worried that they would blame me and it wouldn't be nice if I was living there."
"So just about a week ago my step sister's boyfriend moved in as well. I have now moved in with my brother and they have been served the eviction notice which is 2 months. My dad, step mom and step sister have been calling me non-stop asking me to convince my brother to reconsider and calling me heartless. My step sister texted me saying I'm the biggest a**hole she's ever met because I'm making her homeless at the peak of her pregnancy and it's her baby that I'm punishing," she concluded.
Redditors think OP's family are at fault
"[Not the a**hole] The family is taking advantage of your brother and keeps moving more people into the house he OWNS. I am assuming nobody pays rent. It is your brother’s right to evict them. Maybe your stepsister should take responsibility for herself and the unborn baby. I can’t believe these people wanted to put you in a shed," said one redditor.
"[Not the a**hole] Your brother is no relation to your dad or stepmother, so the only reason he even let you guys live there was for you. If they aren't letting you live in the house, he has no reason to let them stay and could be making a lot more money with other tenants, so it's actually to his benefit to eviction them. They made choices that were bad parenting and now they're paying for them. Their choices, their problem. Not yours... ever."
"[Not the a**hole] They don't need a separate room from the child. They need to all sleep together in one room so when the baby cries, they definitely hear the baby crying and can tend to the baby's needs. It's your brother's home, I'm not sure why they thought this would fly when you're likely the ONLY reason he let them stay there anyway."
