This tale of a father-daughter duo brings to light the often overlooked struggles of students. The daughter, juggling her studies, thesis, and assistant work, finds herself at the receiving end of her father's demand for 'real job' or rent. As tears are shed, and tensions rise, the mother steps in, painting a picture of a hardworking girl, burning the midnight oil, barely getting any sleep. The mother's perspective sparks a debate: what constitutes a 'real job'? Amidst the heated discussions and silent treatments, the father is left questioning his stance. Was he too harsh, or is he justified in his demand? The internet weighs in...

"YTA you didn't pick up on it because you an insensitive a**hole who sees his daughter as a money source and not his child, and honestly, if you don't pull your head from that dark hole it's in, then you'll be lucky to even have a daughter or wife" - Fiery exchange with strong emotions and a warning ⚠️

"YTA, hell yes. Is she your daughter or some estranged relative? You don't sound like you love her at all. I sense no love, no concern for her well-being in your words. She has a job, is able to pay rent, but you're just too impatient to cut her any slack. So now your daughter knows you are not there for her when she needs you, you don't have her back. You have added stress to an already stressful situation. You value money over family. I'm sure she will remember that if you should ever need help. You're also an Ah to your wife by not discussing your concerns with her before bringing it up to your daughter. Are you in a partnership or do you often make decisions unilaterally? I am not at all surprised you didn't notice the burden your daughter carries. It takes love, concern and empathy to notice these things. You are severely lacking in all departments." - A passionate response that calls out the lack of love and empathy. 👏
