She Asked Her Brother to Pay for Her Daughter’s Music Lessons but When He Refused, She Said He ‘Owed Her’

A woman’s daughter was very talented musically, so she enrolled her in private music lessons. But there was one snag: she couldn’t afford the money! So she asked her brother to pay for it, and he refused. Here’s how it went.

He Lived a Comfortable Life

This 40-year-old man was married, with no children, living in a one-bedroom apartment with his wife. He and his wife decided to be child-free when they started their relationship. They both had good jobs and could buy nice things and do fun activities.

He owned a manufacturing plant that his father gave him. He had worked hard and knew everything about the business. He also had four old cars that he fixed up. He really loved cars and planned to get one more car next year.

His Sister’s Struggles

Now, he had a younger sister who wasn’t great at making decisions. She had been divorced twice, was in her early 40s, had two smart kids, and lived with her boyfriend. Her boyfriend spent a lot of time playing video games and getting high.

He’s always “looking for a new job”. Or blaming “the capitalist system” for him not having a job,” he said. While his sister was the one making money for the family.

She was offered a chance to be part of the same business that their dad gave to him, but she didn’t want to work there.

Now the issue was this: Her daughter was really good at singing, so she got her enrolled in private lessons with a music coach, but he knew that his sister couldn’t afford it.

She Sought Financial Help

So, his sister asked him if he could help with money for the lessons because she was too embarrassed to ask their parents. Also, she and her daughter’s dad did talk to each other either.

He politely declined her request until she made a comment on his cars and money, saying, “Must be nice,” which he was tired of hearing.

So he got angry and said, “Maybe if your boyfriend can put down the dope for all of 10 minutes, he can help you out,” and “I have five cars. I’ll buy another five before I give you a dime.” 

His Sister Reacted

He equally told her that her daughter was not his responsibility and that since she had a father, he should take care of her and pay for her stuff.

His sister was really sad because of what he said. She called his wife and told her how mean he was to her.

Now, his wife said they should give her the money, but he still refused to.  He knew he could afford it, but he was not in his sister’s support.

People Responded

One user wrote, “It’s your money, but you do realize that you are speaking from a place of extreme privilege, and when you make comments like that, you look like a petty cruel right?.” 

Another said, “Her asking for help is one thing, but because you’re family, she seems to feel entitled to your financial aid.”
