Man calls out roommate over unexpected household behavior

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
