An upstate New York man who has to be out of his parents’ home in a week has a new excuse for why he should be given more time – he can’t afford moving boxes.
Michael Rotondo, the 30-year-old man ordered by a judge to vacate his parent’s Camillus home, learned on Thursday that he must be completely moved out by noon on June 1.
Rotondo, who is jobless, told Syracuse.com that the deadline may be an issue because he doesn’t have money to pay for moving boxes.
‘I need to start packing my boxes so I can move,’ he told the outlet. ‘But I have to pay for the boxes, which might be a problem.’
Rotondo said he knows if he disobeys the court order he could be forcibly put out the home by sheriff deputies, but said June 1 is not enough time for him to get his stuff together and find another place to live.
‘I really don’t understand how that’s necessary,’ he said. ‘I’m aware that that’s how the ax falls. I’m going to try to resolve this as civilly as possible.’
To help with some of Rotondo’s troubles a pizzeria chain offered the man a job. In a Facebook post on Thursday, Andrew Steinberg, chief operating officer of Villa Italian Kitchen, said he was offering Rotondo a job because he knows it’s ‘tough out there’.
‘At Villa, we feel for millennials, across the board,’ Steinberg wrote. ‘With that said…Michael, hey dude. We are offering you a store-level gig, complete with extensive training to get you up to speed, at any one of our 250 locations worldwide.’
Steinberg said he was willing to give Rotondo a ‘signing bonus’ of $1,101, a dollar more than what the man’s parents offered to give him if he moved out.
