You know things aren’t good when there is drama between you and your kids’ significant others.
Sounds like a whole lot of drama to me!
But was this woman an a**hole for blowing up at her son’s girlfriend?
Take a look at her story and let us know what you think in the comments.
AITA for blowing up on my son’s girlfriend?
“My husband thinks I’m in the right, but my niece helped me make this post on here to see what other people think.
I (52f) have three sons ages ranging from 13 to 20. My oldest son (20m) has a girlfriend (19f) that hands around our house a lot… It’s a really small house and doesn’t have a lot of space. She’s a nice girl but gets on my nerves sometimes because she’s always over.
I really don’t think she’s right for my son, either. Our tap water has a weird aftertaste so I order gallon water bottles and use them to refill a big glass bowl with a tap.
It is not cheap to get water and other groceries delivered, so I tell my sons, husband, and the girlfriend to be courteous of the other people who live here and not use up the water, as it runs out fast in our big household.
Yesterday, I caught her filling up her big metal water bottle with the jug water, and I calmly told her that other people live here, too, and she shouldn’t hog the water all to herself. She was rather short with me and said something along the lines of: “Actually, this water bottle is big enough to hold all the water someone should be drinking in a day. I’m not hogging water, I’m just trying to stay hydrated.”
I found her tone to be disrespectful and ordered her to leave. She scoffed and went back to my son’s room. That’s when I really got frustrated. I opened their door and told her she has to leave. My son got really angry with me and told me that my girlfriend didn’t do anything wrong and why is it a crime for her to drink water?
I explained that I order this water for our family to use, not leeches who hang around all day rent-free. My son’s girlfriend got a little teary eyed and left the room and out the front door without saying anything.
My son told me that I was a major a**hole and should have just minded my business. I think she’s just wasteful and a brat. AITA?”
And here’s what Reddit users had to say.
One person said that this woman is the one with the problem.
Another reader said she’s an a**hole and that she needs to make some changes.
And this Reddit user said she’s an a**hole for pretending this problem is about water when it’s not.
