"I am told I am being unreasonable. Short of the story. My boyfriend let our 3-year-old to watch YouTube on his phone. He didn’t delete his Facebook messages. And one popped up where he was asking a woman for p***y pictures. Well according to my boyfriend our 3-year-old must have sent that message. I want him out of my house. And yes rent is in my name… and all the bills are in my name because he moved in with me. Do I have the right to kick him out? And he has no job so all the bills are paid for by me."
