A 30-year-old Mexican man allegedly reported his own mother to the authorities for kicking him out of the house, because he didn’t want to get a job or at least help with chores.
Last Wednesday, Mexican media reported the case of one Christian Uriel, a 30-year-old man who denounced his own mother and aunt to the before the Mexican Prosecutor’s Office, accusing them of assault and harassments. The young man claimed that he was beaten out of the house by the two women, who also threw water on him. What he failed to tell the authorities was that he had been living at his mother’s house for months, free of charge, without contributing to the family budget or even helping out with chores.
Christian’s mother explained that he had come to live with her at the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic, just after losing his job. She was happy to help him, but after four months of him just sitting on the couch and playing video games all day, her maternal instinct started to whither. To make matters worse, the 30-year-old man didn’t help with anything and expected everything to be served to him.
As Mexico started recovering after the lockdown and businesses started re-opening, the woman asked her son to look for a job, so he could contribute to the family budget, but he completely ignored her and continued on as a couch potato.
The woman admitted that in an act of desperation she called her sister and together they threw Christian out of the house, pouring water on him and hitting him with brooms.
Mexican newspaper El Comercio reported that Christian Uriel complained that he was offended that his mother threw him out and by the way she did it and that’s why he filed a complaint against her. The court has yet to make a ruling in this case.
