Thankfully for them, New York Supreme Court justice Donald Greenwood, who was forced to address the case due to familial nature, dismissed Michael's request for another six months of occupancy as "ridiculous" and ordered him to immediately vacate the premises. (But can you guess why?).
"When asked if he considered spending as much time looking for a new place to live as fighting the eviction, [Michael] replied that he wasn't ready to leave home".
"I really just want to get out of the situation", he said.
Easier said than done. "Get one - you have to work!" they wrote.
The judge explained that Rotondo was given numerous notices, but Rotondo tried to argue as his own attorney that he needed more time, according to WSYR.
Rotondo's parents went so far as to even offer to pay for their 30 year old son's health insurance, with Rotondo explaining that he couldn't take that money because it would compromise getting the "poor person" status.
A letter dated 11 days later cuts straight to the chase, warning of potential legal action if Michael doesn't get out.
The parents' letters to him paint a different picture.

In headlines, Rotondo is often labeled as a deadbeat or layabout; his status as a millennial is also often mentioned.
In a court filing last week, Christina and Mark Rotondo described issuing several orders for their son to move out, starting on 2 February 2018.
Naturally Rotondo refused to budge.
Michael Rotondo says he doesn't know where he plans to move, or what he's going to do with his belongings. Rotondo, who runs a website business, moved back home eight years ago after losing a job. The boy now lives with his mother full time, who Michael says he was never married to, or in a relationship with.
He eventually moved back in with his parents though when he lost his job.
"My business is my business", he said. They gave him parental advice that included, "Organize the things you need for work and to manage an apartment". He is seeking almost $340,000 in damages, pay and attorney's fees from the big box store. He said he did not have a college degree.
The parents declined to comment after the judge's ruling.
"I don't see why the judge wants to throw people on the street". "I don't think trying to destroy somebody is tough love".
Michael ignored the notes and his parents turned desperate. Get. Out. They also warn him to refrain from "threatening or harassing action" that he might consider taking.
