23 Absolutely Despicable Things People Have Done


My sister borrowed a large sum of money from our retired mother, with a promised payback plan. Never made a single payment. Mother is now down to her last dollar so we tried to get our sister to pay her at least some of the money she owes. A few months later a check showed up at our mom’s made out to her for $0.00 and a comment on the bottom that said, “Get a job.”


My aunt racked up about 60 grand in credit card debt, and can’t declare bankruptcy because my uncle would lose his job over that. The dick move: She called my grandmother “ignorant and uneducated” for not changing her will (cutting out other family members) to cover my aunt’s reckless debt. First off – you shouldn’t be waiting for someone’s death to fix your mistakes! And the reason my grandmother doesn’t have an education is because she spent her teen years at AUSCHWITZ.


As I was graduating hs my dad got incredibly sick & ended up in a coma. While he was in the hospital, I still lived at home with his girlfriend he had moved in 2 weeks after my mom left. In the midst of all this, his gf is constantly telling me she will throw my stuff on the lawn bc she doesn’t want me there. During this time I was working full time & wasn’t dating anyone. I later found out once my dad recovered, his gf told him I was bringing different men home & sleeping with them in his house, & that I didn’t respect his house while he was gone. I NEVER did that. So then because of what she told him, while he was in the hospital recovering he took my house key from me & told me I wasn’t welcome there anymore.


My dad once made a rocking horse for my niece. He carved it out of several pieces of wood, hand braided the tail and mane out of rope that he painstakingly unwound, and hand painted it. It was a beautiful toy that would have lasted for generations. One day her father was too lazy to go out and chop wood, so he smashed it up and threw it into the fire.
