Those lazy, good-for-nothing millennials.
Wait, she's 32?!
Lisa S. Palmer dropped out of Hunter College two years ago, but she has since refused to vacate her dorm room on the campus. Hunter has now taken Palmer to court to try to evict the Delaware native.
She hasn't paid rent since 2016, according to an eviction lawsuit filed in Manhattan Supreme Court, the New York Post reports.
The 32-year-old “racked up a staggering $94,000 in unpaid residence hall charges on account of her continued occupancy, all the while ignoring Hunter College’s service of additional vacate notices,” said the suit.
“As of today, June 7, 2016 you are still in occupancy of the aforementioned room,” Michell Quock, assistant director of residence life, wrote to Palmer two summers ago.
Last fall a Hunter attorney continued the battle to get rid of Palmer, sending her an eviction notice that said in bold-faced type: “THIRTY DAY NOTICE OF TERMINATION.”
“You are required to vacate and surrender the premises on or before Oct. 31, 2017 at 12:00 p.m.,” the attorney wrote.
But the one-time geography major, who now works at an architecture firm, refuses to leave her 100-square-foot Room E579 at the school’s co-ed dorm.
“I plan on fighting the lawsuit and while I fight it, I’m going to stay,” Palmer told the Post.
For her part, Palmer contends the school refused to let her enroll in classes for the fall semester of 2016 classes after she took issue with charges for room and board. “I felt that it was a miscommunication initially, but after I met with the dean I felt that they were starting to treat me unfairly. It was like, ‘Get out,’” she said.
But she's also a victim, remember, calling life in a dorm in her 30s “really lonely." “I feel very isolated,” she said.
