Man Wants to Know if He’s a Jerk for Giving His Daughter a Car That He Promised to His Girlfriend

Ouch…this one hurts

Getting promised a car and then having it go to someone else?

That’s a good way to feel BURNED.

And the guy who wrote this story from Reddit’s “Am I the A**hole?” page is now struggling with his decision.

Check out his story below and let us know if you think he acted like a jerk.

AITA for giving my daughter a car that I previously promised my girlfriend?

“I’ve been with my girlfriend for three years (we live together) but I also have a 19 year old daughter from a previous marriage. She lives with her mom.

A few months ago I ordered a new car and my girlfriend asked me if she could have my current one and she’ll just pay me in instalments for it. I told her yes.

But a few days ago I was spending the day with my daughter and she kept complaining about issues with her car (which is a POS) and she asked me if she could borrow £1000 to buy another one and I told her no and that instead she should just take my car since my new one is due to arrive in two weeks and in the meantime I’ll just rent one.

When I told my girlfriend about it afterwards I knew she’d be mad but I offered to just buy her a different car but she screamed at me and called me selfish and said that I should at least once choose her over my daughter.
