Alex found herself in a dilemma when she allowed her friends who were going through a tough time to stay in her 9-year-old son’s bedroom until they get back on their feet. Alex got very concerned when she heard noises of intimacy from the bedroom and asked them to stop, but they keep breaking the rules and now she is wondering whether if she’ll have to kick the couple out onto the streets.
She Gave them Room and Board
Alex, has a 9-year-old child whose bedroom has been rearranged to accommodate a friend and their partner.
The couple is going through a tough time.
Disturbing Realisation Changes the Mood
Alex has overheard noises of intimacy from the child’s bedroom, and it’s making her feel uncomfortable.
A Lack of Respect?
Alex believes that even though the child isn’t there, it’s still their room and should be treated with respect.
Making Their Own Rules
The friend and their partner argue that they are adults, and it shouldn’t matter since the child isn’t there.
Standing Up for Their Beliefs
But Alex asserts that it’s her house, her child’s room, and it’s natural to feel uncomfortable about sexual activities taking place in that space.
One Person’s Plea for Guidance
Desperate for guidance, Alex reached out to the Reddit community to see if she was in the wrong.
Putting Your Concerns to Bed
Alex clarified the couple wasn’t doing anything directly on her child’s bed, or else she would have taken immediate action.
A Better Solution?
Alex argues that since the couple showered together in their large shower to “conserve water,” why can’t they do their business in there?
She wonders why the couple can’t choose to have fun there instead of in her kid’s room.
Seeking Reassurance for an Awkward Situation
Having lived alone for a long time, Alex admits to being unfamiliar with the situation and seeks reassurance from others.
Nothing Is More Important Than Her Child
She also assures everyone that her child’s well-being is her top priority, and if anything makes her child uncomfortable, the friend and their partner will be asked to leave immediately.
Alex wants to make it clear that she prioritises her child’s safety and comfort above all else.
The only problem is that if Alex kicks out the couple, they would likely be homeless and living on the streets.
Concerned Reddit Users Are Divided
Reddit users were both supporting and concerned, “Anyone who would do this isn’t even welcome in my circle of friends. Be respectful of other people’s homes or stay out.”
Another user argues they shouldn’t have let them in the bedroom in the first place, “letting them sleep in the bedroom to begin with is gross. They can sleep on the living room floor or in the garage.”
The Final Decision
Alex reveals that after getting feedback from Reddit users, she made her decision on what to say.
“My house my rules either listen and respect or you can sleep in the car with no heater, no washing machine, no dryer, no way to cook or store food, no safety and I can get on with getting back to trying to fix my own stuff instead of helping you out.”
