Literally! Future Brother-In-Law is currently living with us after deciding going to college out of state wasn’t working for him. He moved home almost a week ago, and has woken me up nearly every night!
Future Brother-In-Law is 19, has been away from his friends and lonely at his OOS college, plus he’s annoyingly popular, so he has been busy hanging out with his friends all week. Which I totally get! But he’s gone out to parties almost every night, coming home between 2-4:30am. We have dogs, so they freak out when he stumbles home in the middle of the night (plus he’s loud by himself) so I get woken up every time.
Yesterday morning, he came home at 4:30 am (I had to wake up at 5:30 to go to work, so that sucked) with three friends, and they proceeded to go downstairs, get drunk and mess with our workout equipment (I found this all out afterwards, otherwise you could bet your ass I would have stomped down there and made them stop). This pissed me off a LOT, because I’m not comfortable with underage drinking going on in our house, especially not when you add work out equipment which weighs hundreds of pounds and could hurt one of them (FH and I would be found guilty if anything happened, seeing as we’re the adults and they’re minors).
I had a mini-freak out over it yesterday, and FH agrees that Future Brother-In-Law needs to be talked to, but he was gone when we got home from work so we couldn’t. Well, he was nice enough to come home at 2:30am this morning, literally only so he could change his shoes before leaving for another party, so I’m wide awake and grouchy over it all and wanted to whine about it.
The thing that bothers me most about this situation, and other aspects of him living here like him eating our food when he said he’d buy his own groceries and him not cleaning up after himself, is that he makes me feel like scolding mother! I’m not that much older than him and resent the idea of taking care for him like he was my child. He’s a sweet kid, rambunctious and enjoying being home again (he really had an awful experience at college so I feel for him), and he’s only been home for 5 days so I know that he’ll probably calm down soon, but man I’m sick of being woken up every morning way early when i have a nearly 10hr shift infront of me!!
I plan on either me or FH talking to him ASAP about it, especially the “no underage drinking in this house, you dummy!” part ugh, but until then it’s now 4:30am and I’ve got to pass time before work, sigh.
