Listen, there’s nothing inherently wrong with a parent asking their adult offspring for rent money, but if that kid decides to move out as a result, the parents can’t get mad. In the case of redditor u/LetterheadMaterial93, it’s not like she wasn’t contributing around the house. In fact, she and her siblings pulled their weight in chores in exchange for a roof over their heads. But when OP started buying nice things for herself with the money she earned at her job, her siblings started getting jealous and told the parents to do something about it, and so they asked for a cut. Rent on top of chores didn’t sound like a good deal to OP, so she packed her bags and moved out. The family didn’t like that one bit.
