A shocked woman stunned Redditors when she revealed that she might have to send her parents to jail. It just may come down to her or them. Here is the full story.
They Never Got Along
OP is a 29-year-old woman who has always had a strained relationship with her parents.
They Have Money Problems
For as long as she can remember, OP’s parents have had money troubles, and it always ends up becoming her problem.
They Lived on the Edge
When OP was a kid, her family was evicted multiple times, and there was always the threat of having the internet or electricity turned off.
She Couldn’t Understand It
Her parents just couldn’t seem to pay their bills, and it never made any sense to OP. Both of her folks had good jobs.
They Make a Lot More Than She Does
In fact, OP says that each of her parents still makes three times as much as she does, even though she’s college educated.
She Did It All Herself
And OP herself paid for that education, working multiple jobs to cover the expenses.
They Wanted Her Money
Even when they knew she was paying for school, OP’s parents guilted her into giving them money when times were tough. Which was pretty much all the time.
They Stole Her Identity
When OP became an adult, her parents even went so far as to put several bills under her name without even asking her.
They Lied to Her
That caused all kinds of fights, and OP demanded that her parents stop. They said they would, but they lied.
She Let It Go
Eventually, OP just let it slide because she wanted to stop fighting and get on with her life.
She Had No Choice
Recently, though, OP’s parents left her virtually no choice but to fight back. Her money and her job were on the line.
Times Were Tough
When the pandemic hit in 2020, OP’s income got hit pretty hard. So instead of saving like she normally did, she started living pretty close to the bone.
She Was in Trouble
After she filed her taxes, OP was looking forward to getting her refund to help offset some of that lost money. Instead, she got a nastygram from the local government.
They Called Her a Deadbeat
It seems they had confiscated OP’s tax return. A company had filed a claim against her because she had not paid her bill with them in a year or more.
She Didn’t Even Know Them
Problem was, OP had no idea who the company was or why they thought she had an account with them.
Mom Played Dumb
That’s when OP called her mom, who at first claimed not to know anything about the bill. She assured OP she’d take care of it, though.
She Knew Something Was Wrong
That didn’t sound right to OP, so she kept pushing. Eventually, she found out that her parents had been up to their old tricks.
They Hosed Her Again
They opened an account under OP’s name, didn’t pay their bills, and then ignored all the notices about overdue payments.
She Was Devastated
And then OP’s tax return was gone like so many of her childhood dreams.
It Would Never End
Even worse, OP found out that her tax return was not enough to cover the outstanding bills. So the government would be garnishing her wages until her debt was paid.
It Wasn’t Really Her Problem
But of course, it wasn’t really OP’s debt, and that’s where her real dilemma set in.
Mom Said She Owed Them
When OP told her mother she had no right to use her identity to get access to a service, mom said it was her duty as a daughter.
They All Turned on Her
From there, the two women said some harsh things to each other, and now OP’s mom, dad, and sister have all but disowned her.
She Has to Choose
So, faced with a mountain of debt that she didn’t make and a nasty family feud, OP is having trouble moving forward.
They Want Her to Lawyer Up
OP’s boyfriend and friends think she should go to the cops and get the court system involved.
She Knows They’re Right
OP knows they’re probably right, because her parents will likely never stop abusing her.
Can She Send Them to Jail?
But OP also knows that if she turns her parents in, there’s a decent chance they’ll go to jail. And it’s hard for her to think about that fate for her aging folks. Redditors don’t mince their words when it comes to what they think OP should do, though.
They overwhelmingly agree with her boyfriend and think that OP’s only option is to turn her parents in. Otherwise, she herself might go bankrupt, and her credit could be tarnished forever.
