Mother Doesn’t Allow Son’s Girlfriend To Drink Water At Their House Asks Online If She Is Wrong.

A mother is upset with her son’s girlfriend for frequently visiting their small home and using up their household’s jug water, which they order and pay for, and asks if she was wrong for ordering the girlfriend to leave after catching her filling up her water bottle.

My husband thinks I’m right, but my niece helped me make this post here to see what other people think.

I (52f) have three sons ranging from 13 to 20. My oldest son (20m) has a girlfriend (19f) that hangs around our house a lot… It’s a really small house and doesn’t have a lot of space. She’s a nice girl but gets on my nerves sometimes because she’s always over. I really don’t think she’s right for my son, either. Our tap water has a weird aftertaste so I order gallon water bottles and use them to refill a big glass bowl with a tap.

It is not cheap to get water and other groceries delivered, so I tell my sons, husband, and the girlfriend to be courteous of the other people who live here and not use up the water, as it runs out fast in our big household.

Yesterday, I caught her filling up her big metal water bottle with the jug water, and I calmly told her that other people live here, too, and she shouldn’t hog the water all to herself. She was rather short with me and said something along the lines of: “Actually, this water bottle is big enough to hold all the water someone should be drinking in a day. I’m not hogging water, I’m just trying to stay hydrated.”

I found her tone to be disrespectful and ordered her to leave. She scoffed and went back to my son’s room. That’s when I really got frustrated. I opened their door and told her she had to leave. My son got really angry with me and told me that my girlfriend didn’t do anything wrong and why is it a crime for her to drink water? I explained that I order this water for our family to use, not leeches who hang around all day rent-free. My son’s girlfriend got a little teary eyed and left the room and out the front door without saying anything.

My son told me that I was a major a**h**e and should have just minded my business. I think she’s just wasteful and a brat. Am I Wrong ? What Should I Do ?
