This user overheard her parents planning to kick her out shortly after her 18th birthday. So, before they could do it, she upped and left all by herself!
OP (Original Poster) is an 18-year-old who overheard a conversation between her mom and dad. They were talking about how they planned to kick her out shortly after she turned 18 years old.
When OP heard them talking, she was sure their tone meant business. She wrote, “The way it was brought up multiple times made it seem like they were going to kick me out too.”
One Step Ahead
She was furious and felt like this was a kind of betrayal. So, OP soon decided that she wouldn’t give them the chance to kick her out.
OP immediately made plans with one of her friends, Riley. They decided that OP could stay at her place until she graduated and moved into a college dorm or had an apartment of her own.
Riley’s parents, fortunately, were okay with her plans. In fact, they were “horrified” by the thought that her parents would kick her out the second she turned 18.
Given this, Riley’s parents agreed to let her stay at their home under the condition that she graduate high school.
Let the Plans Commence
Riley, her parents, and Cole, OP’s boyfriend, came after midnight one day to help her take her belongings to their car. They were also going to drive her straight to Riley’s house.
Waking up With a Start
All the commotion woke OP’s parents up. They asked OP “what the hell is going on” and waited for her answer.
OP just shrugged and told them she was moving out before they could kick her out.
She added, “My parents tried to deny this and attempted to stop me from leaving, but there was nothing that they could do since I’m a legal adult.”
She added, too, that she never planned to leave in the middle of the night without saying goodbye.
OP wrote, “I already put a note on the kitchen table where my mom goes to first thing in the morning, explaining what happened.”
Now OP’s sat in Riley’s spare bedroom, and she’s getting bombarded with calls from her parents. They’re asking OP to return and “not tell her grandparents” about the issue.
One of the messages OP received was from her mom. In the text, she called OP an “ungrateful b****” for leaving in the middle of the night.
She also told OP she should’ve “kicked her out sooner.”
Redditors’ Thoughts and Opinions
For users, OP’s mom raised serious red flags with her messages.
A woman said, “The ‘don’t tell your grandparents’ part raises some huge red flags. I wonder if they’ve been helping OP’s parents out with money. Money that will go away when the grandparents find out what happened.”
Another agreed and replied, “Exactly. I’d just make a short call to the grandparents and be like, ‘Hey, just wanted to update you guys in case you need to reach me. I found out my parents planned to kick me out right after I turned 18, so I had to move. Here’s how to reach me.’”
You’re All Good
Redditors also chimed in, trying to reassure OP that she didn’t do anything wrong.
“Not the a**hole. Also, the parents may try to spin a story about OP, and it may be so bad that the grandparents may go no contact. Do it now,” said one user.
Another Redditor wrote, “Not the a**hole. Your parents are cruel. And I think they don’t want you to tell your grandparents because either they’ve been giving your parents cash, and don’t want to lose the money, or they don’t want to look like the ‘bad’ guys! I’m sorry your parents are garbage parents. I hope your life is a huge success so you can stick it to your parents. Good luck, OP.”
What advice do you have for OP? Do you have anything else to add?
