Talk about awkward family dinners.
A couple in New York had to get the law involved to kick their 30-year-old unemployed son out of their house. After mooching off his parents for over 8 years, the self-described “businessman” showed up in court to represent himself and begged for another 6-months to get his crap together. This comes after his parents had offered him $1,100 to “find a place to stay”, gave him money for an apartment, and took him off the family cellphone plan.
The bizarre family feud boiled over May 7, when mom, Christina, filed suit in Onondaga County Supreme Court seeking to evict Michael from their modest residence in Camillus. On Tuesday, Judge Donald Greenwood ordered the parents’ lawyer Anthony Adorante to draft an order outlining terms of the eviction but allowed Michael to remain at the home until an official eviction date is set, the son said.
Michael the Millenial was furious. Asked if he thought mom and dad were merely trying some tough love, Michael sounded like a child who’d just been punished.
“It’s really unfair to me and really outrageous,” said the son — who has a young boy of his own, of whom he lost custody. “I really don’t want to stay there,” he told The Post from a bus after his life-altering court loss. I’ve been trying to leave there for a long time. They stopped feeding me, they cut me off the family phone plan.”
