Karma comes back - skids asking for handouts!
With the pandemic and unemployment issues on the rise, it's no wonder people are beginning to look at their lives and finances in a different way. I saw this posting elsewhere and am amazed at the gall some of these adult skids. This was posted by a daughter-in-law about her husband's stepmom:
"Step-MIL inherited a majority of FIL’s assets and leads a comfortable life. She doesn’t have her own children while DH (FIL’s son) and I have two young kids. She doesn’t communicate with any of us beyond giving updates on annuity payouts etc. However, she’s always been cordial and friendly. DH and I are struggling financially in the wake of this pandemic and he’s brought up that we need to approach his stepmom for money as it comes from his dad anyway. I don’t know how I feel about this as it’s going to be real awkward. She lives in another state and we haven’t seen her for a couple years. How would I word an email or text or should I just call?"
I wish, wish, wish I could be a fly on the wall and overhear what the stepmother has to say to this "son" and his grasping wife who thinks they are entitled to HER inheritance!
Better yet, it would be wonderful if stepmom happened to belong to STalk and could give us all a "behind the scenes" insight into the situation. I'm sure we can all just imagine the b.s. she's been put through over the years!
