A startled mother resorted to Reddit to gather perspectives after an unexpected encounter at her daughter’s apartment left an indelible impact. What she had involuntarily witnessed had rattled the lives of three young women. Here’s her intriguing tale.
A Homely Inheritance
The concerned mother, referred to as OP, had a 20-year-old daughter studying as a junior in college in their hometown.
The daughter resided in a condo that was once owned by her grandparents.
A Future Promise
OP had received the condo from her parents, with the condition that it would eventually be passed on to her daughter when she was financially independent.
OP’s husband was also in agreement with this plan.
A Friendly Arrangement
Meanwhile, the daughter was sharing the condo with two female roommates.
Given their close friendship, OP charged them a nominal rent.
A Helpful Gesture
One day, the daughter mentioned to OP that they were running out of household essentials but couldn’t find the time to restock due to her academic and work commitments.
Hearing this, OP kindly offered to help by doing the shopping herself.
A Surprise Visit
OP followed through with her plan the next day, procuring the necessary items and proceeding to the condo.
With no response to her knock, she let herself in, intending to leave the purchases in the kitchen as her daughter had requested.
A Shocking Sight
However, OP was abruptly halted by an unexpected scene in the living room. One of her daughter’s roommates was engaged in an intimate act with a young man on the couch.
Overwhelmed by the sight, OP quickly left the supplies by the door and made her hasty exit.
A Delicate Silence
OP chose not to mention the incident to her daughter initially to avoid causing any friction.
She merely confirmed that she had done the shopping as agreed.
An Unexpected Accusation
Days later, however, OP was confronted with an angry email from the roommate’s parents.
They accused her of violating their daughter’s privacy, arguing that as a landlord, she should’ve given 24 hours notice before entering.
A Misunderstood Intent
OP believed that her daughter’s agreement for her to drop off the supplies was an implicit permission to enter the condo.
A Necessary Conversation
However, given the increasing tensions, OP felt the need to discuss the incident with her daughter, a conversation that led to a shocking revelation.
A Deceitful Affair
It turned out that the young man involved in the intimate act with the first roommate was, in fact, the boyfriend of the second roommate.
OP speculated that the first roommate had involved her parents to keep the second one in the dark, presumably without disclosing the entire truth.
An Unavoidable Confrontation
The truth inevitably came out, resulting in a fierce argument between the two roommates.
The guilty roommate decided to move out, and OP was set to make the remaining one sign a more formal lease.
A Regretful Oversight
OP felt remorseful for unintentionally sparking off this life-changing event but didn’t think she was in the wrong.
Her daughter had confirmed that she had informed her roommates about OP’s visit, to which they had consented.
The cheating roommate later admitted to forgetting about OP’s visit amidst the chaos.
She Tried to Divert Blame
Reddit users almost unanimously supported OP’s position, blaming the unfaithful roommate and the equally deceitful boyfriend for the entire fiasco.
Most suspected that the guilty roommate was attempting to divert the blame onto OP, hoping to escape the situation unscathed.
Ironically, by involving her parents, she had unwittingly triggered an explosion of truth.
