Damn it Dale And Brendan! Tomorrow you are getting jobs and getting out of this house!
That’s sure what I thought of when I saw that this was an actual story. It’s real life Step Brothers, except there is just one
idiot guy that can seem to leave the house. His name is Michael Rotondo and no he’s not working the Catalina Wine Mixer.
It seems that Michael had lost his job eight years ago, and had asked his parents to stay at their home for a little bit. Well the problem is, he never left. After giving Michael many chances to leave and even after giving him a SIX MONTH period of time to find a new place to love, he still refused to leave.
His parents then had to take him to court. After all the verbal asks of Michael to leave, they gave him a formal letter dated February 2nd which said:
“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 are necessary to enforce this decision.”
I guess that one didn’t do the trick because they gave him an even more formal letter a couple weeks after. And oh yeah, you know his mom meant business when she used his middle name!
“Michael Joseph Rotondo, You are hereby evicted from 408 Weatheridge Drive, Camillus, New York effective immediately,
Any action you take that can be construed as threatening or harassing…us or prevents or obstructs our ability to use the house or property at 408 Weatheridge Drive as we see fit will result in your immediate removal from the premises.”
Many other notes weren’t given to Michael, but nothing stuck. His parents even offered him $1,100 so he could find a place to stay.
Let’s take a look at these poor parents that had no other option left…
You know that mom didn’t want to escalate the matter to these proportions. Not surprisingly, Michael acted as his own lawyer in court. He said that the $1,100 was not enough as well as he’s “never been expected to contribute to household expenses, or assisted with chores and the maintenance of the premises.”
Can we take a look at that mom’s face again?
Poor mother. Anyways, the judge ruled in favor of the parents and it’s safe to say he wasn’t pleased. He told reporters afterwards:
“It seems to me like I should be provided with, you know, 30 days or so, because generally, you get 30 days after you’re found, you know, to have to vacate the premises. So I’m expecting something like that. But realistically, if that’s not the case, I don’t know.”
Michael also called the ruling “outrageous” and he is already planning his appeal. I have a feeling this Thanksgiving is going to be mega awkward.
