For not wanting boyfriend's friend round playing games during this time?

My boyfriend's friend has recently moved house that still doesn't have good WiFi. His girlfriend is working at his parents house which has WiFi instead. My boyfriend has come and ask me if his friend can chill here all week so he can bring his computer/play games. I said I don't think it's a good idea during lockdown, plus I'm stressed with work this week as I have so much to do and don't want another guy here. The house is quite small, and I want my own space during this time. He said theyd be out of the way upstairs. This has led to a huge argument as apparently he really wants to do his friend this favour. However, I know his parents have a huge house so don't think itd be hard for him and his girlfriend to both stay at theirs. His argument is that his friends computer won't fit in (?) his parents house anywhere. I know this is such a non-problem, however just wondering if people think it's me who's overreacting? He asked me last night and again this morning, I got defensive as I don't think he listened to me the first time. Thanks

Not a chance. Tell him to stop being a man child having a tantrum his friend can’t come and play games whilst the U.K. is on lock down hmm talk about priorities

He's being ridiculous. His friend needs to go to his parents. I suspect they wouldn't put up with him sitting about all day gaming. You need to work & shouldn't be expected to host another person during the day.

Is your boyfriend 13?

What an idiot. Does he realise that you aren’t yet allowed to mix households?

How long have you been together? Do you have children? Do you really want to spend your life with someone so stupid?

Boyfriend? Sounds more like something a young child would ask

Mummy, can Tommy come over and play video games? No! Follow the rules

Your boyfriend is being unreasonable, not you. Its nice to know he would happily put you at risk, isn't it? hmm His friend needs to go to his parents house and stop being a whiny idiot.

In usual times, you both get a say. But if he's got to be in your bedroom, then you've every right to say no. If you have a spare room and they wouldn't get in your way, then he's entitled to have a mate over.

He sounds like a child because you have gone into 'controlling parent' mode.

If the friend has bad wifi then surely he can just use an ethernet cable to connect to the router?
