Well, my dad wrote back and then I talked to him on the phone for over an hour. I was correct in knowing there was a problem, but incorrect thinking it was me. My dad said he has been hesitant to talk to me about this issue because he didn't want to hurt me. The issue at hand? Justin.
So I guess dad has been stressed, worried, and just not enjoying having Justin living with him anymore. I knew this would happen, which is why I tried hard not to let it happen! Did either of them listen to me? Nope! Now look at the awkward predicament we are all in.
Dad says that Justin only works part-time, and the rest of the time he's shut in his room playing video games to all hours of the night, which keeps my dad up. The house is extremely small, so dad hears everything! Justin will even start laundry late in the night, which of course is not quiet and the machine is right next to dads room! Justin also does not help around the house like the deal was. He may do about 15 minutes of labor, then go inside and play games. No social life outside the house, and dad is just tired of it.
I do understand, 100%. Justin has been living there free of rent or anything else, yet is taking advantage of the situation. I do however think my dad should have told Justin months ago about being able to hear him and keeping him up at night. That I know Justin would have been more respectful and keep it down. Justin also sleeps in till noon, unless he has to get up earlier for work.
So, bottom line is my dad is giving Justin a two month notice. What Justin does with this I don't know. It is plenty of time to find a job here and figure out where to go. If he moves back in with us, we will have him pay $200 a month rent just to teach him some kind of life's responsibility. He is 22 yrs old for goodness sake! I don't expect the moon from him, but come on, having a full time job should not be a problem, or go to school to learn something! Damn video games! I think he has a serious problem and I don't know how to help him with it. When that is all a person does, there is a problem. The gaming gets in the way of finding a girl, hanging out with friends, working a full day, or just plain improving your life.
It hurts to see this happening...and I don't know what to do about it :(
