A lot of times when people come into some money, folks come out of the woodwork and they want some of the action.
You know that’s true!
And this young woman wants to know if she acted like an a**hole for not giving any of her casino winnings to some family members.
Read on to see what happened.
AITA for not giving any of my winnings to my sister and BIL?
“I (24 F) went to celebrate my birthday at a local casino with a few friends and my boyfriend.
I ended up winning a large amount. Everyone was super excited and we all went out to dinner to celebrate. We went back home the next day and went to my parents house for a nice dinner.
My sister(26F) and her husband(28M) were at the celebration dinner. My sister and I dropped contact when she met her husband and become an addict. My parents did try and help them, but they told them to back off. I could tell when I walked in that my sister was not herself. I did my best to ignore any comments and it ended up being a nice time.
My parents asked how we did at the casino and we told them in private my winnings. My mom does have a big mouth and shouted the amount to everyone present. My sister walks over and asks if she and BIL can have half to use for a new place. She was begging me to help her and I told her no, because I know what you will use the money on.
My boyfriend stepped in and told her to leave me alone. She looked me in the eyes and said I was trying to re-build our relationship, I guess you feel differently. She left with BIL and have not heard anything. My parents think I should not have been so harsh.
Let’s take a look at what Reddit users had to say about this.
This reader said that this is not the way to rebuild a relationship.
And this individual said that you can’t, under any circumstances, enable addicts.
Another Reddit user said that even without the addiction part of the equation, the sister asking for money like this was out of line.
And this person said that NO ONE is required to give anyone money if they don’t want to.
