Was Our Homeowner Too Harsh? 🤔

So, our homeowner sets some boundaries and asks Bobby to have at least a month's rent saved up before moving in, only to be accused of just wanting someone to help pay his mortgage. After telling Bobby he can't live there until he grows up, a mutual friend says the homeowner is being too harsh. Is our homeowner in the right for wanting to avoid a potential freeloader, or should he cut Bobby some slack? Let's see what the internet has to say about this heated situation... 🔥
