Families are great, but the relationships can be complex and sometimes “unpredictable“. A Redditor took to the forum and shared a story of pro-revenge by a grandmother on her aunt.
We want to know what you think about this:
The Original Poster’s (OP) grandmother raised her children and grandchildren with love and often spoiled them. Unfortunately, two of her children, OP’s uncle and father, became addicts.
Finally, OP’s aunt became estranged. OP had many relatives, so she was unsure if she had met her aunt. She could not remember her name or face. So, she decides to call her “Little Miss J”.
J left without looking back, constantly asking OP’s grandmother for money. However, she rarely repaid her debts, which was a grave mistake as OP’s grandmother was an expert in managing finances and kept track of every penny she had lent J.
What Happened Next?
Two years back, OP’s grandmother received a cancer diagnosis. Despite working hard and being the strongest woman, she could not overcome the illness and passed away.
Throughout her life, she ensured nobody got by without paying her dues.
What Did OP’s Grandmother Do?
In her will, OP’s grandmother bequeathed money to everyone in her family, including OP’s grandpa, father, uncle, OP, and OP’s sisters.
However, for Little Miss J, the will states, “You still owe me 14 dollars.” That was still being determined whether OP’s grandmother loaned J 14 dollars or if the inclusion of the statement was intended as a slap on the face.
J always had an eye for the inheritance, and she got no portion of it. OP says, “I can’t be prouder to have a grandma that wouldn’t leave this world without the last laugh.“
Was OP’s grandmother right in writing that to OP’s aunt? Or was it inappropriate for her? What are your thoughts on the story?
