I agree with you.

How dumb! I don’t get why any one needs an office unless they work from home or regularly need to access a computer for work or school. I would tell him he gets one or the other, definitely not both, and if he kept insisting I wouldn’t move in with him.

I was thinking they could make it a dual office, with a desk and space in the 2nd bedroom for each of them, but him getting 2 private spaces for himself? onn that reasoning? hell no. pick one. I would NOT want craft stuff in the living room so he can sit in his office doing….whatever it is.

What a jerk, demanding he gets all the space and she gets nothing. I wouldn’t move in with a guy l ike that.

Neither of them really need an office, why is it such a big deal to share?

If I were her I wouldn’t be signing a lease with someone as selfish as he is.

No- he does not take both the garage and the room all to himself.

Can the room maybe be split, like have a desk in there, but also could be used as a crafting room?

skier11 :  “Scott works as a cashier for Target and is not in school, nor does he have any plans to start school.”

Ha! I literally laughed out loud at that sentence. What does he even plan on DOING in this office of his? 

I agree with you. Jane should stand her ground. She has a legit reason to need that extra space and he is already getting the garage. He’s being selfish and dumb. How old is Scott? Doesn’t sound like he’s quite mature enough yet to be living with anyone…

This may sound extreme, but I would be rethinking the relationship as a whole if Scott and I were dating. He sounds like he’s pretty inflexible, entitled and has little regard for the compromise it takes to share a space like a home– all of those reasons would be a no fly zone for me to continue in a romantic relationship with someone so selfish.

I was thinking of course he should get the office! Then I read he is a cashier… he doesn’t need a damn office. That woman better stand her ground. One extra room for the each of them. He gets the garage she gets the craft room.

Why don’t they split the bedroom? He can have a desk and chair in there and the rest of the room and closet is for her crafts and storage? Fiance and I split a spare bedroom as an office. Theres enough room for each of us to have a desk and chair.

 

Edit: I don’t think she should give in and split it but if he refuses to share, I’d guess he wants the area for private video viewings. Which is not a valid reason at all but might be the truth since he can’t give a good reason otherwise.

What a power-grab move! For a Target cashier… me thinks he has little man syndrome, and having a home “office” would help bolster some of his incredibly low self-esteem. In your friend’s shoes, I would 100% not move in with him. I would also be entirely rethinking the relationship. Because people with low self-esteem will always put themselves first when they think they can get away with it – like this instance shows. How selfish and rude!

Hell no. He does not get a man cave and an office when she gets no private space whatsoever. Especially since she is running an Etsy store whereas he does not even need an office.

This is obviously some sort of power move. He’s being a jerk and if he does not apologize, I’d seriously reconsider moving in with him. I imagine this being the first of many times he pulls something like this.

I wouldn’t sign the lease. The notion that he needs a private office because “he’s just like his dad” made me envision a little boy playing make believe.
