Screaming kids throwing temper tantrums through thin walls, stressed parents asking if you wouldn't mind watching their kids for free since you're "home anyway," or just the standard issues involved in having roommates all sharing one bathroom, frying pan, or television can be hard to navigate.
So, when a woman decided to consult the moral compass of the internet otherwise known as Reddit's "Am I the as*hole" about her housemate's child, people were quick to offer advice.
I have rented a suite in a converted plantation-like house for three years. The house is set up with three apartments (bedroom + bathroom + small living room). Downstairs is a kitchen (with three lockable fridges + locking cabinets labeled with apartment numbers). We share a dining room, guest bathroom, and kitchen.
I have two neighbors: Apartment 1A (Judy and Marc, 40s couple) and Apartment 2B (Cody, 29M). I found out two weeks ago that Cody had gotten full custody of his son, Dean, who is 6M. Cody knocked on my door to introduce me to Dean. The kid is really nice, but he seems like a lot.
