“She has no issue staying with me for days on end. So I asked my brother if I could take her on a trip with me to Disneyland for a week,” she added. “I knew she would love it since we watch Disney movies together all the time.”

Ava wanted to invite her mother, the woman’s sister-in-law. When the woman asked her sister-in-law, she said Ava could go if she could too.

The woman asked if she wanted to tag along because she didn’t trust her. Her sister-in-law said it was just because she wanted to come along.

The woman told her sister-in-law that she’d have to pay her own way. She informed her that she would pay for the room, but the woman would need to get a ticket for the park and the plane.

Ava’s mother said that she couldn’t afford a ticket. She then told the woman that she should pay for her, as she was childless.

The woman could afford to bring her sister-in-law along, but she didn’t like the way she asked. She refused to pay, so her sister-in-law said Ava could not go.

The woman’s brother called the next day. She said Ava was disappointed that the trip was canceled. However, she’d never told Ava about the trip.

Her brother asked about the trip. He told the woman that he couldn’t cover his wife’s share and asked the woman if she would reconsider.

Again, the woman refused. She felt that Ava’s mom was forcing her hand and trying to manipulate her to get a free trip.

The woman’s brother was upset. He told her she was a monster for disappointing Ava. However, she was not the one who told Ava.

Was she right to refuse to cover her sister-in-law? The woman wrote to an online forum to ask for a second opinion.

The internet responded

One poster said, “I totally understand a parent wanting to accompany their nine-year-old on a trip, but if your brother wants you to include your sister-in-law on a trip that she wasn’t invited on, then they can foot the bill.”

While another commenter declared, “Holding your own kid hostage for a free vacation ransom is a new kind of low, and your brother doubling down on that is doubly despicable.”
