A mother of three was tired of hearing her youngest complain about how little money she made. But when she told her to shut up because her bellyaching was getting old, all hell broke loose.
They Had Three Kids
The woman said, ‘My husband and I, both late 50s, have three lovely children, ‘James’ 34, ‘Maggie’ 33, and ‘June’ 32.’
They Made a Lot of Money
She and her husband had been very fortunate and had high-paying jobs. Her husband was a lawyer, and she had been a paralegal for years. They enjoyed the fruits of their labor, inspiring their two oldest to follow in their footsteps.
Her Kids Were Very Successful
The woman’s son, James, was a lawyer at the same firm as his father, and her first daughter, Maggie, was working hard at law school after being a paralegal for years while her two children were young. They also had partners with jobs with high salaries, and she was very proud of all of them.
She Was Proud of Her
Her youngest daughter, June, was a teacher, and her husband managed a restaurant. The woman was incredibly proud of her daughter, who worked hard for a low wage. However, whenever she saw June, she was always complaining.
She Couldn’t Stop Complaining
June was jealous of her parents and siblings. In comparison, she made hardly anything and constantly reminded them how hard she had it. She’d even make remarks about her parent’s second property in Michigan despite being invited to visit there anytime.
They Lived a Life of Luxury
June’s bitterness was starting to grate on the woman. She had paid her daughter’s school fees and even helped her financially when she wanted to buy a house, but it wasn’t enough! She was jealous of her brother’s holiday house by a lake, her sister’s luxury clothes, and her parent’s nice cars. It was exhausting.
She Was Always Making Snide Remarks
To make matters worse, the woman’s daughter constantly made snide remarks whenever she came over. The woman started to dread her visits, awaiting June’s motos like ‘Must be nice to get new furniture’ or ‘Go on vacation’. But, when June started complaining that it was unfair that she couldn’t afford gas to drive up to her parent’s Michigan home, the woman snapped.
She Couldn’t Take it
The woman said, ‘I told her her constant complaining was getting old.’
It Was a Nightmare
She was tired of her daughter’s bitterness and told her it had to stop. The woman had given June the same opportunities as her siblings, and she knew her salary when she chose to be a teacher. She said she was proud of her daughter but disappointed with her attitude. The family was tired of tip-toeing around her! That’s when June stormed off, screaming that her siblings were the ‘golden children’.
Was She in the Wrong?
The woman was furious at her daughter, who wouldn’t speak to her. When she asked her husband what he thought, he said she was in the wrong and should have let it go. Her mother was very upset about the situation and started guilting the woman. She wondered if she had been too harsh and turned to the internet for advice.
The Internet Responded
One person said, ‘Becoming a teacher if you highly value lots of disposable income for second houses and nice cars is a bad career choice for you.’
Others Chimed in
Another commented, ‘Yikes, no one wants to hear someone in their 30s complain about choices they made.’
