Judge Sides With Parents Who Want 30-Year-Old Son Evicted
A 30-year-old man has been ordered to leave his parents' home, after they sued him because he refused to move out.
I mean, we've all got mates who get rinsed because they're still living at home when they're fully grown adults - you know, the ones who have no idea how to boil an egg or use a washing machine, let alone sort out the electricity bill or, God forbid, a mortgage.
But 30-year-old Michael Rotondo took it so far that his parents actually sued him because he literally wouldn't jog on from their home in Syracuse, New York. The only way to make their son stop outstaying his welcome was to SUE HIM.
Michael runs a website business, but had to move back home when he lost a job.
His parents, Mark and Christina Rotondo, said they'd issued notices to get him kicked out way back in February. Hell, they even offered to give him $1,100 (£800) to help Michael find a new pad of his own - a sweet deal that most of us would definitely jump at the chance of capitalising on.
But get this: Michael did take the money, he just didn't leave, telling the court that it wasn't enough for him to live anywhere other than his parents' home.

He also claimed that the time he'd been given to leave legally wasn't enough notice, and argued that six months would have been a much more reasonable timeframe for him to work with.
According to ABC7, after the judge's ruling, Michael said: "This is outrageous."
He added that he planned to get some things from the home, but wasn't sure where he will stay. He also said that he would be appealing the decision.
Why he'd want to live in the home of two people who desperately want him to leave is beyond us, but desperate times often call for desperate measures.
The judge also asked adult protective services to check on their situation, as he was concerned about the obviously rocky home life - with Michael not contributing to the family expenses or helping out with any of the chores, according to court filings.
It's a good lesson to us all, proving that however much you think you can rinse your parents' generosity (weekly roast dinners, the occasional bit of laundry, the odd tenner here and there if you're lucky), there is a limit to their unconditional love.
Maybe at least offer to do wash up after the chicken on Sunday, eh?
