She Told Her Dad She’s Not Supporting Her Grandparents Since He Clearly Has The Money And Time To Do It Himself

This 30-year-old woman was not raised by her parents, but she was raised by her mom’s parents instead.

When she was only 4-years-old, her biological father walked out of her life, and she didn’t see him until she was close to 20-years-old.

While she was still a child, her father’s parents called her on occasion, and they saw her in person not that frequently.

Her father’s parents never once financially supported her, let alone offered to watch her. They were pretty absent from her life, and they certainly didn’t feel like grandparents to her.

Three years ago, her grandma on her dad’s side was forced to retire from her job after being diagnosed with advancing Alzheimer’s.

Her grandma asked if she wanted to take over her job, which she did, and her grandma had been talking about that prior to becoming sick.

“She is now in a care facility full-time, and I have been contributing to her expenses voluntarily,” she explained.

“Earlier this week, my bio dad, out of nowhere, told me that he is getting married and has been living with a woman for almost 4 months. They just bought a house.”

“She has two kids from previous marriages, and she is also in her early 30s. Today my dad asked me to buy some stuff for his mom and to take his dad to a doctor’s appointment. I said no and told him that if he has time and money to care for 2 kids, then he has to have time and money for his parents.”
