On yer bike! Deadline for unemployed millennial ordered out of parents' home

It's a amusing situation for people named Michael Rotondo after a 30-year-old man in Central New York with the same name went to court to try and stop his parents from evicting him from their home.

Michael Rotondo left the four-bedroom home in Camillus, New York, two-and-a-half hours before the midday deadline, syracuse.com said.

According to the Syracuse.com report, Rotondo moved all of his belongings from the home, including a Volkswagon Passat that had been sitting in his parents' driveway, untouched for months. Local media report he left the house in Camillus, N.Y., just four hours before his high noon deadline to depart.

Rotondo's father reportedly offered to search for the toys and return any he found, but that wasn't enough, and the man instead got the police involved.

Officers arrived and the Lego bricks were found in the meantime, the newspaper said.

He told USA Today he's "glad to be out of this place" and said he would never talk to his parents again.


Rotondo lost custody and unsupervised visitation with his son in 2017.

The eviction drama began on February 2 when the parents left their first note, saying Michael had two weeks to vacate his room at the family's Camillus home.

"I love my parents immensely", he said.

"There are jobs available even for those with a poor work history like you", they wrote in one note, dated 18 February. He failed to persuade the judge to grant him another six months with his parents and was ordered to leave.

After that, he plans on staying at an AirBnB briefly and believes he will then be able to move in with his cousin soon. And sadly, other Michael Rotondos got caught in the crossfire - including one who also happens to hail from central NY, in Albany.

Greenwood ruled in favour of Rotondo's parents, Mark and Christina, setting into motion the 30-year-old's eviction. "I can't have my phone getting jammed up with nonsense like that", Rotondo said as police responded to his complaint.
