Ever wonder what’s going on with the younger generation? You know — the ones who need safe spaces to shelter them from opposing ideas, new pronouns to affirm their non-binary sex, and the day off when their favored political candidate loses?
Well, it’s a good question. The times, they are a-changin’. Case in point:
Michael’s Rotondo’s parents, Mark and Christina, have sent their long-haired son multiple letters over the past 5 months, telling him he must move out on his own.
One of the notices read:
Here is $1,100 from us to you so you can find a place to stay.
1) Organize the things you need for work and to manage an apartment. Note: You will need stuff at (redacted). You must arrange the date and time through your Father so he can set it up with the tenant.
2) Sell the other things you have that have any significant value, (e.g. stereo, some tools etc.). This is especially true for any weapons you may have. You need the money and will have no place for the stuff.
3) There are jobs available even for those with a poor work history like you. Get one — you have to work!
4) If you want help finding a place your Mother has offered to help you.
Another mandate made a promise:
After a discussion with your Mother, we have decided that you must leave this house immediately. You have 14 days to vacate. You will not be allowed to return. We will take whatever actions necessary to enforce this decision.
Mom and Pop weren’t kidding. In fact, the Rotondos finally resorted to the courtroom, where they petitioned a judge to evict their son from their New York home.
Young Rotondo pleaded to New York State Supreme Court Judge Donald Greenwood, “Six months’ notice to [move out] is a reasonable amount of time for someone who has been depending on persons for support.”
The judge sided with the parents: Rotondo will be officially booted.
Michael has been living with his parents for eight years, rent-free.
The adolescent called the ruling “outrageous” and said he plans to appeal.
Micahael Rotondo is 30 years old.
In 2016, those 18-29 voted overwhelmingly for Hillary Rodham Clinton.
