What would you do in this situation?

I'm 22 and am in my last year of college, I live with my parents to save money.

Anyway, I have three roommates, two of them pays their rent on a monthly basis; I've witnessed with my eyes that they pay rent.

The third roommate, though, I suspect does not pay rent. I've never seen her pay rent before. Plus, the way she acts around my mother is weird. She's so ingratiating, and my mom can order her around like asking her to go to the groceries with her even though she's studying. Also, she compliments my mother non-stop even when my mom's making fun of her.

I've asked my mom repeatedly if she pays the rent or not. And she replies, oh ya, she pays 600 dollars a month which, in my opinion, is absolute bullshit, since the girl is poor. And my mom also insists that she pays by cheque and that's why I've never seen her pay the rent. Anyway, I hate this roommate so much, I feel like she's a free rider and I hate the fact that she's taking a chunk out of our money.

What would you do in this situation. Would you feel the same way?

Not your house. Not your business.

Move out on your own if you don't like it.

You live with your parents AND you have roommates? I've never heard of that before. Are you allowed to have guys stay over? (Yes, I'm assuming you're a guy.)

Can't you see what's in front of you, OP? your mother and the roommate are bumpin' pussies.

What R1 said. There may have been confidential conversations between her and your mother you don't know about.

I couldn't understand what the OP wrote. Your mother, however, sounds like a real bitch.

OP, it's not your house. You are not the landlord. It's none of your business if your parents choose to let the girl live there without paying rent.

What would I do? I'd go look for a mirror, sit by my bedroom window as the sun sets, hold the mirror up and whisper "Am I not my mother's child, and not wretched Gretchen? Is this... jealousy... I feel?"

Have you considered murdering your parents ??

by Anonymousreply 2311/07/2013

Wait, you are living with your parents to "save money" so that means YOU aren't paying any rent either.

And wtf are your parents running a college dormitory? Weird.

by Anonymousreply 2411/07/2013

Do your parents have a permit to run a boarding house? Are they reporting that income on their tax forms?

I'm trying to envision the kind of house one would need to make this scenario not disgusting. Dorm rooms for three people are usually pretty large--larger than most bedrooms in a normal house. Yet, your parents are trying to eke out all the money they can by taking in lodgers, so they probably aren't living in a McMansion with expansive master bedrooms or a guest house.

Are you three living in a garage or something?

by Anonymousreply 2511/07/2013

Unless you are named on your parents' mortgage paperwork, this girl's rent payments are none of your business.

Weird set-up though.

OP, please try to write like a college...oh wait.

Some questions--

1. Where the hell are you from, OP? I suspect a Canadian, because of "cheque," but your scenario sounds very low-class latin. (Latins have that same sort of ingratiating, sugary sweet rapport with people they consider servants. And because the poorer ones come from countries where they've seen the wealthy European latins employ the poorer "native" ones in just that same way, they try to imitate that type of behavior here.)

2. Who the hell would pay $600 per month to share a bedroom with 3 other adults? I suppose you're all sleeping in double-stacked hammocks, like pirates. I imagine the hygiene is at the same level.

3. How did your mom meet this roommate of yours? What is their relationship? It very much sounds like your mother and this roommate are both immigrants from somewhere else.

4. She's not stealing your money. She has indentured herself to your mother to repay the rent. Now, why is that a secret from you?

It's not a boarding house; it's a WHORE house!

by Anonymousreply 3111/08/2013

So you're living at home, with roommates. Sounds like the worst of both worlds!

I've whethered a lot of unfortunate living circumstances, but thankfully none came with mom/roommate tension.

I would really just focus on my OWN wretched life, OP, and try to make some changes accordingly. You are living with your parents AND roommates, as others have noted, which is the WORST of all possible scenarios. The whole thing makes no sense. What kind of parents DO something like this? Take in borders like that? Do you live in a big orphanage house or something. What.The.Fuck? Honey, the fact that one of those borders might not be paying rent (which is between the border and your parents, n'est pas?) is the LEAST of your worries. In fact, it is not YOUR worry at all.

I would start with the question "Why does MY life SUCK so bad?"

by Anonymousreply 3811/10/2013

The OP's spelling of "mom" would indicate USA but his/her spelling of "cheque" says Britain/Ireland/Australia/NZ/Canada, no?

Where the hell did OP go? HEY OP, you have a bunch of questions to answer.

It's got to be a troll post. There's been no explanation for why the parents have taken in 3 boarders and where they all sleep.

I suspect OP with the details about how the other girl seems subservient to his mother and is living there mysteriously for free is trying to Establish Sufficient Tendencies that point to the idea that the other girl is his parents' "submissive" or something.

It was just too poorly written to make it obvious. C- for effort. Better luck next time.

by Anonymousreply 4611/10/2013

OP, don't murder your parents like omw poster said. Just do us all a favor and kill yourself. :)

by Anonymousreply 4711/11/2013

Who cleans the toilet? The submissive non-paying boarder or your mom? Know this and you know the real dynamic of what's going on. And what's your dad doing while a house of strangers are running around him? The fact you say nothing at all about him leads me to think you have far, far more serious issues with your dad.

The roommate is in love with your mother. They are bumping nasties when you are not home.
