How do you know you’ve failed as a parent? When it takes a court date to throw your son out of the house.
He’s every negative Millenial stereotype rolled up into one hopeless mess.
His parents were even willing to front him $1,100 dollars to start him off for rent… in February.
And he STILL hasn’t left.
The judge told him to get out.
Michael Rotondo told the judge he knows his parents want him out of the split-level ranch they share. But he argued that as a family member, he’s entitled to six months more time.
State Supreme Court Justice Donald Greenwood rejected that as outrageous, the Post-Standard of Syracuse reported.
Rotondo told reporters he’ll appeal.
Mark and Christina Rotondo brought the court case after several eviction letters offering money and other help were ignored.
They want him to get out of the house, get a job, and take his busted-up Passat with him.
He then called out for television camera crews to meet him outside the courthouse. There, he answered their questions, telling them he occupies a bedroom in his parents’ home, doesn’t speak to them and isn’t ready to leave home. He said he had a business but wouldn’t elaborate.
“My business is my business,” he said.
Yes, you read that right… he ‘isn’t ready to leave home’ and he ‘wants to appeal’ so that he can keep lingering in their house like a bad smell for free. Because it’s his ‘right’, and he’s ‘entitled’.
Maybe being ‘entitled’ is exactly that punk’s problem.
He’s been living there rent-free for a decade.
And he just lost custody of a kid.
What. A. Surprise.
Could it be because he’s a layabout deadbeat?
Michael says he lost custody of his son, whose age he wouldn’t disclose, back in September. The boy now lives with his mother full time, who Michael says he was never married to, or in a relationship with.
He says he immediately filed an appeal as a ‘poor person’ so that his court fees could be waived going forward. But he says his parents complicated matters when they said he needed a job and health insurance if he was to continue living with them.
Michael refused, saying that his job at the moment was getting his son back.
Your job is to sit at home and get your son back? Maybe he could watch Night At The Museum and get himself a clue. If you’re a dad, without steady work… get steady work.
It’s not rocket science.
Michael says he hasn’t always lived at home. He says about eight years ago he lived in an apartment for a year and a half. He says it was around that time that he became a father.
He eventually moved back in with his parents though when he lost his job
When asked where he was working at the time, Michael said he didn’t ‘want to disclose’ his work history.
DailyMail.com did discovered that he used to work at a Best Buy, and that he is suing the company for discrimination, saying he was fired when he said he couldn’t work Saturdays since that is when he had visitation with his child. He is seeking nearly $340,000 in damages, pay and attorney’s fees from the big box store.
Thirty years old and freeloading off of his parents? He is in serious need of a wake-up call.
If anybody out there knows him, do him a favor and put this book in his hands.
If he won’t join the ranks of the adults for himself, maybe he’ll consider doing it for his son.
