Caught in the Crossfire: Generosity or Obligation? 🎯

Our protagonist finds herself in a whirlwind of accusations and demands. She's been covering her roommate's rent and feeding her, but when asked to finance baby supplies, she draws the line. The roommate, feeling cornered and desperate, lashes out and accuses her of being heartless. The situation escalates to a point where the roommate demands our protagonist's salary, claiming she doesn't need it since her father supports her. This leads to a heated argument, leaving our protagonist contemplating a move back home. Let's see what the internet has to say about this sticky situation. 🍿

NTA but move out. Roommate is entitled and unstable 🤔

NTA Your roommate is lucky you were willing to cover for her. You should really try to get another roommate or just move out and get your own place since you can probably afford it. You are not responsible for her situation. She is crazy entitled. This! Get your own space, you deserve it! NTA. I physically made the wtf face reading this. Like I grew up super poor. Slept on couches some in college. At no point did I go "hey, you don't need that money so give it to me who really does to no fault of my own". OP needs to GTFO before this gets worse. If it was a knee jerk one time fight I would give the advice to talk it out first because hormones and insecurity. But no way now!
