That Time My Mom Got Evicted

Timeframe: 2014

The story:

Nothing my mom ever does is her fault, according to her. I swear there’s an elaborate story for EVERYTHING that goes wrong in her life.

After months of submitting rental applications and getting denied, she finally got her own apartment. I was happy that something was finally going right for her.

I was wrong. She was evicted within three months.

What happened?

Apparently she had problem after problem with the leasing office. They didn’t fix this… they didn’t fix that. Leaky roof, bug infestations, no heat, blah blah blah. So her bright idea was to not pay rent until they fixed the problems.

What grown adult CHOOSES not to pay rent??? Why not call the appropriate housing authorities, or get an attorney? ANYTHING! But you don’t just stop paying your damn rent!

According to my dad, the REAL problem was that she couldn’t afford her rent. It was the same amount as her ENTIRE paycheck.

So she and my brother (pre-teen) slept on a friend’s couch for a few days until she got desperate (or kicked out) and they had to come live with me and my husband… for the SECOND time in less than a year.


Narcissistic behaviors/traits displayed by mom:

  • Refuse to take responsibility for their own actions
  • Always seeks to be taken care of
