Woman 'threatened' to kick out coworker for kissing best friend sparks debate

Ingram Atkinson

Living with a roommate is definitely not the easiest task. Having to learn to live with a complete stranger is something not everyone can deal with, however when push comes to shove, it may be necessary.

According to a study conducted in 2018 by Pew Research Center, 1 in 3 U.S. adults live with a roommate who is not their romantic partner or college roommate.

The user u/aitata3726 took to Reddit to share a real experience she had with a coworker of hers. The post went viral receiving nearly 11,000 likes and over 8,800 comments. Around February, her(23) and her coworker(25) and his daughter(6) moved in with her. This resulted from a company wide layoff which affected her coworker causing him to be out of a job.

I know he was really worried about his rent and everything and my roommate was leaving so I offered for him to stay with me and we worked out an agreement. We decided that while he's still looking for a job he'd deal with all the chores and errands and housework. It's honestly been amazing having him live with me (he's SUCH a great cook), and Lia has actually been really well behaved and sweet. He's helped me out a lot and I really enjoy being able to spend all this time with him. He has found some part time work but nothing that pays enough for him to live alone, so we've mostly kept our agreement, just with me doing more and him helping pay a little.

When a third party was added to the mix, things became complicated.

Last weekend I had a bunch of my friends stay over. I thought it went great but the next day Lia told me she saw Jayden kiss my best friend. I was really upset and Jayden and I ended up arguing about it. I told him how betrayed I felt. He tried to say it was fine, that apparently that kiss 'wasn't intentional' and he didn't say anything because they 'didn't know what it meant'. But it's still wrong, I'm doing so much only for him to do this to me. I got upset and told him that he will have to leave if he just wants take advantage of my kindness

According to SNC, there is a tendency for roommate conflicts to arise as a result of miscommunication, or, in some cases, a complete lack of communication. If you and your roommate can effectively communicate, you will have a much easier time developing a harmonious living environment.

Her roommate continually persisted that he was not in the wrong and that she had no business being in his 'love life'

The last few days have been horrible and he doesn't think he's done anything wrong. I've tried to talk again, but he now refuses to and has been really cold, and told me that he'll move out as soon as he can. I don't think I've done anything wrong, it's his own fault. I want to work this out, but he shouldn't be going around kissing my friends.
