The audacity of some people. These folks share the most entitled request they’ve received from people who really shouldn’t be making such demands. Content has been edited for clarity.
“I’ve been married to my husband for over 10 years and there’s always been some jealousy and resentment from my sister-in-law (SIL). She’s always felt like I had the life she wanted, not necessarily with her brother, but the marriage, family, job stability etc. I have 3 kids (a 10-year-old, a 8-year-old, and a 3-month old).
She got married last year and they decided to start trying for a baby, but she was unfortunately told that she can’t have children naturally. She was understandably devastated and the family comforted her as best as we could.
We recently had a family dinner and in the middle of it she said to me, ‘I think it’s really unfair that you got to have 3 kids and I can’t have any. Your baby is my last chance to raise a child so I think you should give her to me during the week so I can create a motherly bond with her and you can have her on weekends.’
Before I could respond, the entire table erupted with everyone talking at once so I took my older kids upstairs. When I got back to the dining room her husband was asking what the hell is wrong with her and why would she even think to ask that. She was trying to justify herself when I asked them to leave. I also said that she’s no longer welcomed at my house or around my children until she gets help. She started screaming that I don’t deserve my life or my children and that I stole her baby from her.
Her husband and MIL kept apologizing and dragged her out of the house still crying and screaming. Now my kids want to know why their aunt wants to take the baby. Unfortunately, that’s the situation I’m currently dealing with.”
“So for the past 2 years, I lived in a small apartment building. The apartment building didn’t have a laundry room, but it did come with hookups for a washer and dryer in the apartment, so I bought them myself.
Recently, my boyfriend and I got engaged. And since my lease was up, I moved into his house with him. I finished moving everything out of my old apartment yesterday, and I thought nothing about taking my washer and dryer with me since I had bought them.
Well, I woke up this morning to multiple missed calls from my old landlord. I had left my phone number and new address in case any mail was delivered to my old place.
When I called him back, he asked me why the washer and dryer were gone. I explained that I took them with me. He started freaking out, saying he had advertised the place as having a washer and dryer. Apparently, I had raised the rent due to them. He started demanding I bring them back because the new clients he had set up to move in had already signed the lease and were not interested in the place without them. He even threatened to call the police if I didn’t return them.
I got angry and told him that I would do no such thing, reminding him that they belonged to me. I bought them, and I still had the receipts from when I purchased them, as well as texts from him when I moved explaining that I was buying them myself.
He again threatened to call the police.
I told him to do it and see what happened, and I hung up at that point.
Personally, I don’t think I’m in the wrong. I bought them, and they weren’t cheap, so I feel I have the right to take them. My boyfriend is on my side, but today, a co-worker said they think I’m the asshole for not telling the landlord I was taking them. In my opinion, that should have been obvious. I paid for them, why would I leave them?
Well, my landlord went through with calling the police. Because the next day, they showed up today. Honestly, nothing really noteworthy happened. I explained to them what was going on and showed them the receipts for the washer and dryer, as well as the texts from the landlord I had when I told him I was buying them. The cops took my statement and left.
My boyfriend’s father is a lawyer, and he is going to be contacting my landlord and sorting everything out. He advised me not to respond to said landlord anymore for the time being.”
“A little over 5 years ago, my brother started dating ‘Maria’, my (now) fiancee. Three months after they started dating, they set me up with her (now ex) best friend, ‘Jen’. The four of us did a lot together since the girls were best friends. My brother and Maria dated for a year, and Jen and I dated for 9 months. At the end of our relationship, I came home early and found my brother and my girlfriend in my bed together.
After I processed the situation, I called Maria because I’d want to know if I were in her place. She came over, and we confronted my brother and Jen. They dumped us, and I found out 2 days later that they started dating each other. It broke me.
I had to move back in with my parents. It was infuriating because they kept talking about how happy my brother and Jen were.
Throughout the next couple of months, Maria and I started talking. We were two people in similar shitty situations, and we found some comfort in each other. Four months after we got dumped, Maria and I officially started dating. Six months after we got dumped, my brother found out that Jen was cheating on him, and she left him for the other guy. Maria would get the occasional message from my brother, trying to reconnect, but she ignored him.
Anyway, moving on to now. Maria and I are engaged and getting married in September. My parents were invited until my mom called me and threatened to not come if I didn’t invite my brother. I told her not to bother coming regardless. In my mother’s eyes, my brother can do no wrong. When he messed up and started dating my ex, I told my parents everything he did, and my mom tried defending him. Our relationship isn’t the greatest, but it was somewhat decent.
After I uninvited my parents (I only uninvited my mom, but my dad texted me and said he’s not coming if my mom isn’t), my brother blew up my phone trying to get ahold of me. This is the first time he’s even tried reaching out to me in 4 years. He’s begging me to re-invite my parents and possibly give him an invite.”
