Desperate man turned to Reddit for advice after his elderly father refused his son’s request to stop having loud sex with strange women while his grandchildren were awake and within range of voice in their shared home.
The original 25-year-old poster – OP for short – wrote on the famous site Am I the A**hole subreddit that he was living with his 52-year-old father with his 25-year-old girlfriend and their two children, aged five and one, while he sought a more permanent living situation.
About his father, the man explained: “He always brings a new girl during the day when the kids are mostly up and makes a lot of noise.
“I asked him to wait until the kids were asleep or at least at school. However, he would get upset and say “this is my house” or “get the hell out then”.
A 25-year-old man took to Reddit for advice after his father, 52, bristled at his son’s request not to have loud sex while his grandchildren were awake and at within earshot in their shared residence.
The original poster – OP for short – added the disturbing detail that her two children, aged one and five, “are quite intelligent and imitate the sounds” of their grandfather having sex.
“I’m not trying to be rude, yes, it’s his house but I’m the one paying the biggest bill,” he continued, adding a disturbing detail: “The kids are pretty smart and imitate sounds.
The OP pointed out that he had a job and was supporting himself and his family – “so I’m not making fun of my dad,” he explained.
“I literally haven’t received any financial or physical support since I graduated high school.”
In the man’s responses in the comments section, he explained that he paid almost all of the household bills, except for the water bill – which his father took care of, at around $40 a month .
The OP went on to point out that he “definitely” intended to “find me an apartment” as soon as possible, “especially for the kids.”
Hundreds of people took to the comments to give their views on OP’s extremely uncomfortable living situation – with most considering him NTA, or “Not The A**hole.”
‘Ew, what absolutely NTA, what kind of person does your dad think he is?! They’re kids and they shouldn’t have to go through this at such a young age,” one person wrote, with the OP responding, “Exactly!!! »
‘NTA for the request because ewwwwww (for having loud sex while he knows his son and grandchildren are home). That said, yes, move yourself and the kids away because it doesn’t look like it’s going to change,” a second agreed.
Hundreds of people responded to comments to declare the man NTA – or “Not the asshole”.
Some considered the situation ESH – or “Everyone here sucks” – with at least one user insisting that OP was an a**hole because the house is the father’s, rationalizing: “He can do whatever ‘he wants “
To this, the OP responded, “Absolutely don’t care.
One joker responded: “NTA, but hide your Viagra.” »
‘NTA You have to move. In the meantime, listen to loud music to mask the noise. You could play baby shark on repeat, Barney, moose mating calls, mating pigs, cats in heat, you get it, wrote another in favor of a little revenge for bad behavior.
One concerned commenter said: “NTA – It’s shocking how many children imitate sexual sounds, words and gestures in public. This is a concern for the children and for you – if your older child is heard imitating these sounds at school, for example, you could receive a call for disturbing, age-inappropriate knowledge regarding sexuality.
“It seems like your father is counting on you financially. Please come out to your family as soon as you can, none of you deserve to live in these conditions.
‘Exactly!!! Smh, I’ll definitely be out,” the OP responded.
“Daddy NTA is a pig. I hope you and your kids can go out soon,” another chimed in.
“I will definitely move,” the OP replied.
Still, others thought OP was at least somewhat wrong.
‘YTA is his house. He can do whatever he wants. If you don’t like it, then get the hell out, you lazy idiot,” one hissed, along with “YTA,” short for “You’re The A**hole.”
Another wrote “ESH,” short for “Everyone Sucks Here.”
“You control your life OP, you can’t live with your dad because it’s convenient and then you get mad he won’t follow your rules. He is 52 years old and you and your girlfriend have plenty of time to find your own place,” they added.
“Your dad is mean for sleeping with your kids at home but man, he’s 52, he already raised you, if he wants to bring hoes home every day, that’s his business.”
Someone else said: “Esh. It’s not your house, so you can’t make rules. Your father is also disgusting. To relocate.’
But one person still resisted, writing: “OP is definitely NTA. “What kind of person has loud sex with their grandchildren at home???’
“A pervert,” replied one commenter.
