Today I am reminded yet again of how lucky I am.
A dear aunt passed away last year and I am just finding out her kids are still fighting over her estate. Two of the older sons are married, have jobs and they still want a portion of whatever she left the two younger sons who are still in school.
They are fighting over the value of a house that is underwater in the mortgage. Underwater!
If you were a decent human being, you would just say heck with it and give the two younger sons her house. They have lived their most of their lives anyway...
You would think these two older sibs would look in on them and ask if the mortgage is being paid off or what expenses need to be taken care of. The two younger fellas are a high school kid and a college sophomore for crying out loud...
Instead, the two older sons use a lawyer and try to divide the house four ways. They don't even apparently care where their two half brothers end up in. It's not like the two younger brothers have done anything terrible. They're good kids just trying to do well and stay in school. And these two older jerks --grown men in their 30's with their own homes and families still want to grab the house from under their younger half brothers.
These things I will never understand about some people.
It's plain greed and avarice.
It's my dear Aunt's one year anniversary today.
She must be turning in her grave.
