She asked her boyfriend’s sister and her friends to leave the house because it was their date night, was she being a jerk? She turned to Reddit for advice.
A Very Full House
The Original Poster (OP) asked the Reddit community if she was in the wrong for asking for her boyfriend’s sister to leave their parent’s house for their own date night.
Trying to Find Some Alone Time
OP and her boyfriend, both 33, still live with their parents and find it difficult to spend quality time alone together. However, last weekend presented an opportunity as his parents were away on vacation.
They Were Surprised to Find They Were Not Alone
They decided to plan a romantic dinner at his parents’ house since it was available. After shopping for groceries and wine, they returned to the house, excited to start their date night.
However, upon arrival, they discovered that his sister, who is 25, had invited a group of friends over for a BBQ in the backyard.
To their disappointment, this was not the quiet evening they had anticipated as his sister had also hosted guests the night before.
She Wasn’t Supposed to Be There
OP and her boyfriend were disappointed when they found out that his sister had guests over, as she usually works overnight on Saturdays.
Although she claimed that she had the day off, they suspected that she may have requested it off to take advantage of the empty house.
Trying to Make It Work
OP explained their plans to her, and she reassured them that they could still have their date night in the kitchen without any interruptions, as the guests were outside in the backyard.
They Were Interrupted by the Party
As OP and her boyfriend opened their wine and started to cook, they found that his sister and her friends were being extremely loud and frequently coming inside the house to use the bathroom down the hall from the kitchen.
The Noise Was the Last Straw
Feeling frustrated and disturbed by the noise, OP went outside to speak with the sister, explaining that the level of noise was unacceptable as they were trying to have a peaceful date night.
OP requested that she and her friends move their BBQ to another location. They should have had the BBQ the night before and this was their turn to use the house.
She Would Not Move the Party
However, OP’s sister-in-law responded with attitude, claiming that she lived in the house and OP was merely a guest, therefore, she had no right to ask them to leave.
Despite OP’s request, the sister insisted that they could still use the kitchen without any disturbance.
They Gave a Snarky Response
OP and her boyfriend were both angry and frustrated by the disturbance caused by his sister and her friends.
After they finished making their dinner, they ate it and OP decided to leave. As they left, the sister and her friends were still hanging out in the backyard.
On the way out, OP commented to the sister about how it was time to grow up and that she would only understand the importance of having alone time when she was in a relationship.
However, she just rolled her eyes in response.
The Whole Family Is Now Upset
The next morning, OP received a call from her boyfriend who informed her that his parents were not pleased. In response, he suggested that they spend some time at their house until things calm down.
Wondering What Went Wrong
OP felt confused and frustrated, wondering where they went wrong. OP and her boyfriend had planned their date night around the sister’s schedule, selecting Saturday since she always worked on that day.
Furthermore, the sister had already hosted her friends the night before, so OP couldn’t understand why they were not entitled to use the house for their own date night.
The Reddit community came flying in with comments on this thread, writing that OP was in the wrong for making this a big deal. They stated that since they do not own the house, as its their parents, then they do not have the authority to determine when people can be there.
They also said that just because the house was supposed to be free, OP and their boyfriend should have checked with all parties to ensure the house would be free that night and not fight over it during the evening.
What do you think? Was OP in the wrong for telling the sister to leave her parent’s house that they also live at?
