NTA Le sigh. You handled this in a mature, real way that is rare for Reddit. When you mentioned locking the car doors, I wondered if Sam had the foresight to jump in the driver's seat with the engine running. I was hoping that stepdad was cruising for a bruising and that, after the whip-ass, you gotta fled. Maybe even have some Jerry Springer bouncer type guys hanging around the neighborhood. Just in case things got real. 😂
