In addition to the party, his sister also decided that she wanted to travel down to Mexico to meet up with the guy and have him meet his son. That’s why, two days ago, he received a call from his sister– who asked him to do him a favor.
According to him, his sister made the request with such “ease” that he thought the favor would be something simple. Spoiler alert: it wasn’t.
His sister actually asked if he could take money out of his 401k since she does not have enough money saved up for all of her plans. Still, he claimed he would think about it.
He detailed how, in the past, his sister had lent him a large sum of money– mainly when he hit a rough patch during college while working as a server.
He also has a decent-paying job now for someone his age, so he had never turned anyone down when they asked to borrow anything– including money. He has since paid his sister back for all of the money he borrowed back in college. He also claimed that he isn’t a pushover and really didn’t think anyone would ever make such a request.
“So I don’t think it’s appropriate for me to take out any money from my 401k to lend my sister for a party and, indirectly, for her to visit this guy,” he admitted.
That’s why he ultimately decided to turn his sister down. And now, he’s wondering whether refusing to lend his sister money from his 401k makes him a jerk.
Would you ever ask someone to take money out of their 401k for you? Do you think he had a right to say no? What would you have done in this situation?
