She Gifted Her Best Friend $12,000 for IVF, but When She Caught the Same Friend Cruelly Mocking Her Own Infertility, She Canceled the Check

A woman recently asked for some advice after her friend made a joke at her expense, and her reaction was to cancel a big check she’d given her. Here’s what happened.

They Wanted Kids

A 35-year-old woman and her husband tried for years to have kids, but nothing ever seemed to work, and in the end, it was determined that the woman was infertile.

After this bombshell, the woman’s husband filed for divorce and married someone else quite quickly.

The woman said, “He married someone younger who was able to give him a child, and from what I gather, they’re expecting a second.”

It Was Painful

The woman was upset about what had happened, and her ex-husband now having a family caused her a lot of pain. To make things worse, her family blamed her for the marriage breaking down.

Luckily, the woman had some good friends around. One in particular, Alessia, became very close, as she was also struggling to conceive.

Alessia and her husband decided to try IVF, and knowing how expensive it was, the woman decided to give her $12,000 toward it. She said, “I really wanted to help her, and the money came with no strings attached. I wrote the check and gave it to her last week. She was very appreciative.”

A Text Changed Everything

But the day after, she received a text from a mutual friend, and what she read shocked her.

The mutual friend sent a screenshot of a text conversation between her and Alessia. Alessia was saying she hoped the IVF would work because she didn’t want her husband to leave her and have a baby with someone else.

She Was Quite Specific

Alessia went on to say that she wouldn’t want to be left on her own at 35. To the 35-year-old woman, this was proof that 32-year-old Alessia was mocking her.

The woman decided not to confront Alessia but simply cancel the check instead.

When she realized the check was canceled, Alessia quickly called the woman to find out what was going on.

The woman told Alessia she knew what she’d said. Alessia protested that it was just a joke between “desperate, infertile women” and that she hadn’t meant any harm.

Alessia and her husband then visited the woman’s house to try and explain. This led to a big argument, during which the woman was labeled “unsupportive,” and Alessia’s husband reminded her of how much help his wife had given her during her own difficulties.

No matter what they said, the woman refused to write them another check, even though it meant they couldn’t have the next cycle of IVF.

Was She Wrong?

Was the woman wrong to cancel the check when it was for such an important cause, or had Alessia gone too far with her joke?

The Internet Responded

One person said, “It was a cruel thing for her to do. Especially after you were so gracious toward them.”

Another commented, “An inside joke is inside because it’s between the people who started it. She made you the butt of a joke and was cruel.”
