I live with my best friend and her little brother is the most annoying shithead on the face of the earth!
He’s 17 and he has no friends at all. He is very lonely so he insists on butting into everything my best friend and i do. He refuses to respect those in authority, and cusses them out frequently. This includes his parents. I have seen him make his mother cry for an hour.
He has dropped out of school and he does nothing at all but sit on his ass, eat candy and watch television. Because of this lack of activity, he has gained over eighty pounds in the last year and is now obese. And unfortunatly, this is not an exaggeration.
His parents cannot handle him and as they live in another state this leaves the responsbility of looking after him to my best friend. She is a lovely, caring person and is too soft to kick him out, even though he refuses to get a job and contribute to our household.
I don’t want to move out as I love where I’m living and I love my best friend, but it’s becoming a major strain and I don’t feel that I can take action as I am not a family member. I do realise that his behaviour is a cry for help but he consistently refuses to accept help whether it’s from his sister or his parents, or any other member of his family. My best friend and I are tired of supporting him. Does anyone have any suggestions on how this situation can be resolved? And is there anyone out there who has been in a similar situation?
