Woman Asks If She’s Wrong For Choosing Her 12 Y.O. Dog Over Her Mom’s 5 Y.O. Stepson

Some people would rather have a dog as a friend than a human friend any day of the week. Year? Lifetime? Yes, forever. It should go without saying that a dog will never abandon you, let you down, or turn around and leave you. People might. The absolute love and loyalty of dogs, however, prevented them.

So why, you know, wouldn’t a person return that love in the same manner? especially if their family has abandoned them and disappointed them. As one Redditor who selected her wonderful dog Rory over her estranged mother’s stepson, both of whom required money for their medical ailments, explains, the disappointment just gets worse from there.

According to the tale, the estranged mother intended to use her daughter’s inheritance to pay for her stepson’s $15K worth of medical treatment. David, the son, is a year old. David, incidentally, need some medical attention that was $15,000. The marriage is also a surprise to OP, as is the fact that the mother of the daughter, who is OP, has a daughter.

Anyway, she has now requested $15K, and Cool-Sector has immediately responded “no.” Even though the situation stinks, the OP claimed that she just isn’t willing to help since she simply isn’t, and she also doesn’t have any extra cash. The conversation ended right there, but the mom ultimately learned about Rory and the impending surgery, which sparked another exchange that included multiple voicemails and texts in which she was called every imaginable insult. The daughter, incidentally, had already chosen a surgery.

Now that she’s reached her breaking point, OP texts back that Rory is everything to her and David is simply some random kid with whom she has no emotional attachment. Along with being unaware of the marriage situation, this was also the first time mum had spoken to me in a long time. And she demands cash? “Nah,” OP answered.

This sparked off a series of events, and now the entire family is angry with OP for choosing a dog over a child. The last action taken by the OP was to contact David’s dad, the husband of her mother, to inform him of what had transpired and to ask him to convey a message to the mother and everyone else.

According to the daughter’s post, the mom was rejected for a variety of reasons, starting a small family conflict that resulted in everyone being blocked.

The story ended up on r/AITA, the internet’s moral arbiter of everything that counts in people’s lives, since the OP was curious about if doing this was the correct thing to do. Because strangers are objective, I thought it would be best to hear their perspective because “my decision was final and I simply wanted to see whether I’m [the jerk],” explained OP.

The decision to proclaim OP NTA was agreed upon by the entire community. They claim that the issue is very problematic and that the OP is right to withhold the funds from the mother because she wants to hide her baby from her husband, they don’t get along, and she is definitely taking advantage of the situation. who is, in fact
