Man, it feels good to criticize someone who really deserves it every once in a while…

But the young man who did this to their uncle in this story is now thinking about what he said.

Check out his story and see if you think he’s gone too far…

“I (19 months) live with my father since my mother cheated on him with my uncle.

I still see my uncle every few weeks, but only because he lives with my grandparents and I don’t want to stay in contact with them.

Go with the flow…

My dad agrees with this, saying I should just be stoic towards the guy during my visit.

Mom is no longer here, having left my uncle for someone else. I haven’t seen her for months now.

My dad gave me a credit card last year, telling me I could use it for meals. I also get to buy a new book every week.

Today I bought ‘The Maze Runner’. Then I had lunch and went to my grandparents’ house, where, as usual, I just ignored my uncle and talked to my grandparents.

My uncle usually ignores me too, but not today.

He asked me why I wasted money on the book when I already had the movie, before saying that my father should have taught me better about money management.

Then the guy also went on and said I was too old for the book.

Mind your own business, man.

I said the things listed in the title of the post. I didn’t raise my voice at him or anything. I just looked him straight in the eye and said it.

My grandparents told me that I didn’t need to be rude to him and that he was still my oldest.

They said I should be polite to him “for (their) sake,” saying I should have more self-control at my age.
