I know we are all normal people, we meet normal people, we think all people around us are good….right?
Sadly I deal with money. When it comes to money I have seen the following:
a) Elder daughter CHEATING a father off all his savings and house so that she could use the money as a down payment. Younger sister supporting father staying in a old age home.
b) Elder brother saying ‘it is the parents duty to pay for exam fees why should I’ after father died. Mother extremely hurt but cannot do anything – emotionally feels cannot say this in public.
c) ‘dad my wedding has to be as grand as my elder sister’s’ – the younger daughter FORCING a parent to spend far beyond his means AT A TIME when his business is floundering. Girl from UP and boy from TN, love marriage. Parent told me this.
d) nephew looking after an uncle withdrew an extra Rs. 4 lakhs over a 6 year period from the ATM. Would draw 5k twice from the ATM – give one and keep the other. Came to light when the old man’s diary was reconciled with the bank statement.
e) one sister stopping the other sister from attending OWN mother’s funeral.
f) One brother producing a FAKE will to have a flat transferred to himself – trying to over ride the nomination already made with the building society.
…..the list goes on.
MORAL of the story:
When it comes to money, people fight. Does not matter whether it is Rs. 5000 crores like the Birlas or Rs. 50,000 crores like the Ambanis….
communicate, communicate, communicate,………….write, document, nominate, get a will registered…….be careful that is all….
