His Aunt and Uncle Were Nice as Pie When They Wanted Him to Donate Bone Marrow to Their Son, but the Minute He Did, They Snubbed Him

A man recently wrote online about how he was asked to donate bone marrow to his cousin. His aunt and uncle were great to him before the procedure, but once their boy had the bone marrow, they treated the man with total contempt.

“My cousin and I are both 24-year-old males. He has been ill off and on for the last year and needed a bone marrow transplant. I was a match, so I agreed to be his donor.

“The arrangement was for me to stay in a hotel, then my aunt and uncle were going to pick me up and take me to the hospital where my cousin was for the procedure,” he added. “Then, they would drive me back to the hotel once I was discharged since I had to go under anesthesia.”

The man completed the procedure. He sat in the waiting room, expecting to see his aunt and uncle any minute. Two hours passed.

He received a text from his aunt and uncle. They said the operation had just started, and they wanted to be with their son to make sure it was going OK. The man understood their concern.

Another two hours passed, but neither his aunt nor uncle arrived. He texted them to check on his cousin and ask if it was possible for either of them to take him to his hotel.

By this point, he was feeling a bit sickly. The procedure was painful, and he just needed to lie down. He kept waiting but got no reply.

After another two hours with no reply, he got up and left. He texted his aunt and uncle that he would get a cab. The man called a rideshare app and got to his hotel. It was pretty expensive, but he needed the rest.

He woke up at the hotel the next morning. He saw that the transplant went well. He wondered why they didn’t respond to him and sent them a payment request with a note: “Unexpected ride share expense. Glad everything went well.”

Stunning response

What happened next was stunning. He received a response that said, “You are heartless for trying to extort money from us at a time like this. You could have waited a little longer, and we would have taken you back to your hotel. It was your choice to spend your money.”

Trying to explain

He tried to explain that they left his text unread for hours. He didn’t know what to do. However, they wouldn’t budge.

Was he right?

Was the man right to bill them for the ride? He felt that it was the right thing to do, but he wanted to be sure, so he wrote on an online forum and asked for a second opinion.

The internet responded

One poster wrote, “I can’t believe anyone would act like that to someone who’d just donated to save their child’s life. One of them should have taken you.”

While another said, “You donated your bone marrow to their son, and they didn’t have an inch of gratitude to take care of you and ensure you’re well rested. Absolute shame on them.”
