Woman asks if she was wrong to refuse entitled neighbor's demands for her 7 kids.


If you're taking public transit its common courtesy to give up your seat to a parent with their child, or if a person is pregnant. However, one Reddit user sparks debate on a popular Reddit thread in the Am I the A**hole Subreddit, where they ask if it's wrong to not accommodate someone with 7 kids?

AITA for not taking the next elevator when a mom with 7 children demanded it of me?

A very Catholic neighbor so it seems.

A neighbor of mine has seven children and they are all under the age of 9. I have seen her many times, and she always demands people take the next elevator because “she has kids who need to get home.” She has physically shoved her and her children into the elevators and forced people out, including my elderly father.

Kids on a bus are the worst.

I was on my way home from work - I take public transit - and she was on the bus with all her kids. They were screaming and running up and down the aisle; basically making such a scene that the driver asked her to have the kids sit down before they get hurt.

Sure enough, one of the kids was spinning around one of the poles and bumped her head as we were going over the train tracks near my place and started screaming. She looked like she was physically okay, no blood, not even a red mark, but she screeched the rest of the ride to the building.

OP called dibs.

I was first in the building, and hit the elevator button. She came in with her double stroller and, her gaggle of children running around. I stepped into the elevator, and held the door for her. She told me that I would have to get out and wait for the next one. I said “excuse me?”

She heavy sighed at me, and said, “my stroller won’t fit in with you in here. Get out and take the next one.” I refused, saying I would make myself as tiny as I could, but I was staying in the elevator.

This neighbor doesn't respect dibs.

She became irate, pointed at her kids and said “do you see what I’m dealing with here?!” I said I understood that it’s overwhelming but I had worked a long day and I needed to get home. I said “in or out, because I’m going now.” She pulled her stroller and kids out, calling me an a**hole the entire time.

A few people were waiting behind her and got in with me. Two began thanking me for standing up to her because she does this “all the time,” but the other one called me an a**hole for not being sympathetic to her situation.

Is OP right?

I don’t think people should have to make constant accommodations for people just because they have kids, especially when they’re rude and demanding. AITA here?

NTA (Not the A**hole) - I am soooooooo sick of entitled parents. Just because you breed does NOT entitle you to special treatment.

She made the choice to have kids. More than that, she made the choice to have seven of them. Seriously, that is just too many, especially within a 9 year time span. If she makes that choice, tough luck if it is hard, but that is what she chose.

NTA. You should leave a box of condoms at her door.

OP you aren't a co-parent for those kids! They can wait for the next elevator!
