Family drama erupted after sister publicly accused siblings of being a ‘leech’ who can’t stay at home without paying her ‘market rent’

Rising rental prices (along with gas and food) have a lot people are worried. Therefore, it is not surprising that some people want to reduce additional costs. While some prefer to cut costs elsewhere or look for better housing deals elsewhere, others are taking a slightly… more greedy approach. Have you ever heard someone ask a family member pay to take them in? Not? Well, buckle up, Pandas, you will soon.

redditor turned to the AITA subreddit for their verdict on whether they were right or wrong in refusing to look after their sister. Housekeeping usually involves looking after the house and making sure no one breaks in and waters the plants (which may or may not taste the water for the first time this year). Which household of course is not having to pay rent to the owner for the privilege of doing them a favor.

However, this is exactly what the redditor’s sister demanded of them. She was even willing to lower the market value of the rent a little for the sake of her family. Ridiculous? Market oriented? Read the full story and tell us what you think in the comments dear pandas.

When a relative asks for a favor, the last thing you would expect is for them to want to charge you for your altruism.

The vast majority of internet users are (obviously) on the redditor side. However, the scariest thing is that there are quite a few homeowners on Facebook who support the sister’s opinion that there is no such thing as a free life. They actually called the redditor a “leech” for refusing to pay for the shelter.

We’re not entirely sure if society’s morality and common sense have suddenly changed or if some social media groups are just living in tiny echo chambers. This is probably the last one, right? Look, it’s perfectly fine to be rational, financially literate, and frugal in the way you live your life. Damn, those are all great qualities. But when you start cutting family ties for a small pile of money, things start to look like we really do live in a clown world.

However, it is understandable that some people may be in complete panic mode over what is happening to the economy. Rental prices are skyrocketing. CNN Business reports that rents in Manhattan hit record highs in May for “the fourth month in a row”.

“The median rent for a Manhattan apartment rose to $4,000 a month in May, up 25% year-over-year,” Douglas Elliman and Miller Samuel Real Estate Appraisers and Consultants, a brokerage firm, told CNN. With the onset of summer, the situation may worsen.

‚ÄúThis is a market that has been pushed to the ceiling. In addition, new leasing is expected to peak in August, which is expected to put pressure on prices in the short term. I’m not sure how long it will last after that, because at some point for accessibility, the math just doesn’t work,” Jonathan Miller, President and CEO of Miller Samuel, told CNN.

In Manhattan, the median rental prices for studio apartments and one-bedroom apartments in May were $2,975 and $3,999, respectively. At the same time, the average rent for a three-room apartment is just under $5,000. The average cost of a three-room apartment has reached 6498 dollars.

Overseas, in the United Kingdom, things are not so much better. One tenant, mother of one, Amy Jones told the BBC that she asked the landlord to evict them so they could get social housing.

Despair is real. Some Britons pay dozens of months of rent in advance and offer to pay more in cash every month just to secure a place to live.

Several people were shocked by what happened. Here’s what they said about the sister’s point of view
