At that point, his parents threatened to cut the man out of their will, to which the man shrugged, unbothered. “I reminded them of the fact that they can’t even afford to buy in my area, so their will and assets don’t really matter to me,” the man explained.
What Did the Man Choose to Do?
After the unpleasant conversation, the man’s parents refused to talk to him. His siblings told him that he should have proactively told them about his financial situation, but he argued he didn’t need to, as his LinkedIn profile was public, but they never bothered to search.
The man now questioned whether he was harsh for what he did. He didn’t feel obliged to help his parents after they cut him off for 17 years and only showed interest in him after realizing he was wealthy.
What would you have done if you were in his situation? Would you have done the same thing, or would you have reacted differently?
