Stepmom's Tough Love 💔

After her stepdaughter's friends left the house a complete mess, this stepmom decided to take matters into her own hands. She demanded that O pay back the cost of the cleaning service, even giving her an ultimatum: pay for the damages or lose her phone privileges. 📵 But with O insisting it wasn't her fault and her husband asking her to let it go, this stepmom is left wondering if she's being too harsh. 😕 Let's see what the internet thinks of this messy situation...

"YTA Look, she's a bit of an a**hole for leaving a mess. She should have cleaned the counter and made sure she and her guests took off their shoes. That being said, your response was extreme and out of the blue, so much that it overshadows her assholery. A natural consequence would be insisting that she vacuums, mops the floor, and cleans the counter, then perhaps warning her that if she doesn't remember to clean up after her guests, you'll charge her $20 or something reasonable for reminding her to do so. Mental illness is really tough, but frankly the way she left the house was "messy" or "untidy" but not even close to "ruined." If a normal, non-professional can't reach your cleaning standards, your cleaning standards are far too high." 😬🧹
