The House Rules Showdown: A Friendship on the Line

In a twist of events, a simple act of kindness turned into a friendship crisis. When our generous friend offered her spare room to her bestie in need, little did she know it would lead to a drama-filled showdown. The introduction of house rules - a standard expectation for any shared living situation - was met with unexpected resistance and accusations of being a 'controlling mom'. The fallout? A friendship on the brink of collapse, a houseguest turned away, and a lingering question - who's in the wrong here? Let's see what the internet has to say about this...💭

Maybe the person who kicked her out of the other house wasn't such an a**hole after all.... NTA 🤔
