A 28-year-old woman named Rachel had a difficult encounter with her niece, who ruined her expensive coat (worth $20,000) with paint. Here is what she had to say:
An Incredibly Generous Gift
Rachel’s mother-in-law had gifted her the coat, which was worth over $20,000, and Rachel had been careful with it ever since.
A Comfortable Life
Rachel had married a wealthy man 2 years ago, and her in-laws had gifted her the expensive coat as a Christmas present. Rachel had been careful with it, only wearing it on special occasions, and had never imagined that her niece would ruin it.
A Terrible Prank
However, during a visit to her sister’s house, her niece played a prank on her and splattered paint on the coat. Rachel was furious and demanded that her niece pay for the damage, but her sister refused, leading to a heated argument.
When her niece splattered paint on the coat, Rachel was shocked and angry. She didn’t understand how this could have been a funny prank when in reality it’s just damaged an incredibly expensive piece of clothing. Her niece had recorded the whole thing for ”internet clout”.
Rachel had video evidence of her niece admitting to the prank and knowing how expensive the coat was. She was determined to get her money back and threatened to sue her sister if necessary.
However, people in Rachel’s life had mixed opinions about the situation. Some thought that Rachel was being unreasonable for expecting her niece to pay for the coat, while others thought that her sister should have taken responsibility for her daughter’s actions.
The Situation’s Escalating
Rachel was torn between her desire to be compensated for the damage and her love for her family. She didn’t want to ruin her relationship with her sister and niece, but she also didn’t want to let the incident go without consequences. Rachel’s husband tried to support her, but he also didn’t want the situation to escalate.
She’s Going to Sue!
Rachel and her sister couldn’t reach an agreement. Rachel kept reminding her sister that she did have video evidence of her niece admitting to the damage but her sister didn’t care. So Rachel decided she was going to proceed with suing them for damages and costs.
The Internet Responded
This commenter wrote, “This girl knew the value of the coat was extreme and deliberately set out to destroy it, record it, put it on social media and gain attention from it. That is a crime. And it isn’t going to be a misdemeanor with a 20k value. When you call the lawyer, ask him to help you go to the police station and press charges on the attention seeking niece. Ask the lawyer to make sure to notify you when your niece will be arrested. Go film it and put it on social media.”
More Internet Comments
Another person commented, “I would either let your sister know, the niece can pay you back or you will press charges – simple as that. I’d personally frame it as a teaching moment rather than revenge. If they/she can’t afford it, I’d say charge the new one and she needs to get a job and make payments with a contract in writing of how much she gives you every pay period.”
A Final Comment
This last person posted this opinion, “Sounds like it’s not getting taken as seriously because it’s a luxury item, but $20k is still $20k. If the girl had destroyed a car, or deliberately did $20k worth of damage to a house, it would be addressed totally differently. But just because the coat was a luxury doesn’t take away the destroyed value.”
