'She said that we need to leave': Roommate insists that her father will be staying in female roommate's bed, internet disagrees
Living with people, whether strangers or friends, is a gallimaufry of strange and weird experiences. Everyone's a little odd in their own way, and our strange habits have a way of manifesting themselves in the worst way possible when in a joint living situation. (Good thing that, even in 2018, one in three adults lived with an adult roommate.) All things considered, a little bit of strange is a best-case scenario… As there is no end to the horrible ordeals that a terrible roommate can inflict upon you
Despite all the unpredictable uncertainty, one thing is a given when renting a room; You'll have exclusive rights and access to it. This is why it was all the more surprising to u/notatypicaltaurus when her roommate flat-out told her to clear out so that the roommate's dad could sleep in her room while he was in town.
Keep reading to see the screenshots of the original thread, as posted by the roommate who is being asked to give up her bed for her roommate's father. She posted the thread to Reddit's r/AITA (Am I the A-Hole) community to see whether she was in the wrong for refusing to give up her room for her roommate's father to stay.
It's difficult to even build a frame of reference for how or why the roommate decided this was a reasonable expectation. Where in her experiences did she build the understanding that it was ok to ask this of your roommate? It would be one thing if the room was offered (which might happen if a mutual friend or acquaintance was staying), but to have your father stay in your female roommate's bed? Excuse me? What?
This premise is also built under the expectation that your roommate will be out of town. Asking them to vacate their room for the expressed purpose of having a guest stay adds another layer of bizarreness to this story. This isn't some hotel where you can demand that your roommate checks out at 11 am.
