Boy Reminds – “House Where He Lives Is Bought By His Biological Father Money”
For the past few months I (17m) haven’t had a good relationship with my mom or stepdad. I’m angry at them because 2 years ago when my dad passed away he left me an inheritance that I’m supposed to get on my 18th bday. I’m also getting survivor benefits that my mom uses for me when I need things.
They bought a house that we moved into. It was weird for me because we always lived in a 3 bedroom apartment. My stepdad is a substitute teacher and my mom’s a part time receptionist. They never even had enough to go for a vacation or something but all of a sudden they had a large house out of nowhere. My mom looked guilty about it until she finally admitted they used some of what my dad left me to buy the house. I lost my sh%t.
They tried to justify that it was for me too and I asked them does that mean they’re moving out when I’m 18 and the house goes in my name? And they’re like no. That’s what I thought.
There’s still some money left if I went to a cheap college but still can’t believe they used my money for something on themselves. That amount could’ve helped me get my own damn house. Also, I think it is funny since my step dad didn’t like my dad because since I was spending more time with him that meant my mom had to pay a little in child support.
But he doesn’t care about using the money he left for me. Sorry if this a bit of a rant but where I’m asking it I was a Jerk when last Saturday his family all came to stay at the house. They stayed Friday night so it was nxt morning when I’m getting ready to go to work. I made myself eggs in a hurry before I left. My stepdad asked how come there wasn’t more for his family. And I told him it’s because I’m already leaving for work there wasn’t gonna be time to make something for everyone. He acted like it’s not a big deal if I’m a little late since it’s rare they have people over at the house.
We got back and forth because I’m not going to stop to make breakfast when he can do it himself. Then he pulled out that don’t talk to me like that in my house. Btw there’s no door in the kitchen and that leads right to the living room so they could hear all this. I said loudly that it’s my house since you paid for it with my money and don’t forget you actually stole from me.
My mom is expecting me to apologize for embarrassing him in front of his whole family because after I left they all had sh%t to say about it. They already went home by the time I got home but you could feel the tension. He straight up ignored me, that’s how bad it was. I don’t feel like there’s anything for me to apologize for so that’s where she thinks I’m not being a good son and kind of an a-hole. Wanna know if others feel the same. Did I go too far here?
