In a post made on Reddit, the young man revealed that he had spent six months as his grandfather’s primary caregiver. The grandfather then gave the young man a $60K gift to thank him for the sacrifices that he made in taking on a carer role at such a young age.
“I (19M) Have been caregiving for my Grandpa with cancer for about 6 months (unpaid). My life has completely turned around, I should be working a job and making memories with friends. My grandpa realized this and gifted me about $60k, I was shocked but also felt bad for this sudden money,” said the post.
The young man then revealed that his mother objected to him accepting the $60K, and that she slandered him to other family members for not sharing the money.
“My mother is the one who gets all his stuff when he dies (House, Bank account) and she was very unhappy that I was gifted this. We’ve never gotten along, and she’s always treated me kinda poorly,” read the post.
“She decided to call all my family and tell them about this transaction, shi**ing on me. Then, trying to manipulate me into giving half to my sister (24F) who has never worked a day in her life (They are very buddy-buddy).”
