Living in a shared space can be tricky, especially when it comes to boundaries. One tenant found themselves in a tough spot when their neighbor's 6-year-old son started to rely on them for food and entertainment. The situation escalated when the tenant's boyfriend brought over pizza and snacks for an early Valentine's Day celebration, leaving the little boy heartbroken. But who's really in the wrong here? Let's dive into the story. 😬
