He Was Delighted When His Father Left His $40,000 Worth of Workshop Tools, but Then His Sister Threw Them All Away Behind His Back

A man recently wrote to an online forum to share his disgust at seeing his inheritance thrown in a dumpster. His father gave him $40,000 worth of tools, but his sister got rid of them without asking. Here’s what he had to say.

The man wrote, “Unfortunately, my dad passed away last year, and I will never forget the lessons and skills he taught me that made me the man I am today.”

“It wasn’t a total surprise, so he had the opportunity to have everyone who loved him by his side, and he settled his affairs with the family,” he added. “He gifted me the most amazing gift any craftsman can be honored with; he gave me his tools!”

His father had a fully kitted-out workshop that he’d amassed over the years. His son was the only one who took after him, so it was a beautiful gesture that signified his love and acceptance.

The man has a sister called Lucy. She convinced their mother to move in with her and sell the property now that her husband had passed away.

The home was sold. Shortly after, Lucy began telling the family to come and empty the property in time for the closure.

The man’s family took care of the house while he and his brother tackled the workshop. They packed away the valuable tools and put any rubbish into a rental dumpster.

It was a long day, and the dumpster was full to the brim. So, they packed up and decided to come back when a fresh dumpster was delivered.

The man called his mother a few days later to check if the new dumpster arrived. His mother told him that Lucy had organized something and that everything was done.

The man’s heart sank. He knew what had happened. Sure enough, when he got to the house, he saw a construction dumpster full of all the items from the workshop mixed with general waste.

Lack of care

Lucy had taken no care at all, even with her dear father’s tool. Some were ruined, many were missing, and the man soon gave up trying to retrieve them.

The man went on his family group chat and gave everyone a piece of his mind. Lucy shot back with hostility. Out of ideas, he set up a GoFundMe to replace the tools, with a target of $40,000.

Sad accusation

When Lucy heard about the GoFundMe, she accused him of lying and profiting from her father’s death.

Was he in the right?

Was setting up a GoFundMe the right thing for the man to do? He reached out to an online forum and asked for a second opinion.

The internet responded

One commenter said, “Just block Lucy and be done with her.”

While another declared, “Call the cops. She destroyed your property; that’s a crime. I’d record her admitting to it before going to the cops, though, so you have evidence.”
