30-Year-Old Man-Child Calls Police on his Parents Over Legos
The saga of the man-child evicted from his parents' basement continues. Just when you thought he couldn't become any more pathetic, in he steps saying "hold my juice box." Some Legos belonging to "his son" were missing. So, naturally he called in the po-po to save the day:
A 30-year-old US man evicted from his parents' home in a court battle has finally moved out - after calling the police on his dad in a row about Lego.
Michael Rotondo waved to journalists as he drove away from the house in Camillus, New York state.
His parents won the eviction ruling last week after their son ignored repeated requests to get a job and go.
Mr Rotondo told journalists gathered outside the family home on Friday morning that he had called law enforcement because his father would not let him retrieve his eight-year-old son's Lego from the basement.
Yeah, his son's Legos.
I'd love to have heard the call to 911. "Hello police? Hi, I need to report a hostage situation at the Octan gas station in my parents' basement. Yes, three employees and a tyrannosaurus rex in the process of eating the gas station. My dad has the whole place on lockdown and he's being a real butt about it. Please hurry!"
Yes, a fully-grown man invoking the authorities over a couple plastic bricks. These are the depths to which the human race has sunk. Excuse me.
Hopefully, for his tot's sake, this guy gets his act together and puts the petty Lego squabbles behind him. Uses his plastic bricklaying skills to score a job in construction. Gets himself a real house, as opposed to a fantasy dwelling made from remnants of an old firehouse set and the Millennium Falcon. Though considering the current trends in millennialism, that's a pretty tall order. Keep your fingers crossed.
