A man took to the “AITA” forum on Reddit to ask fellow users if he was in the wrong when he decided to kick his sister and her twin daughters from his home.
Namely, when his sister got divorced and left her ex-husband’s home together with her two 16-year-old daughters and asked to move in with the OP, he and his wife were already going through a tough period themselves. His wife was diagnosed with cancer and was receiving chemo treatments but they still decided to open the door to their home for his sister and nieces.
The OP’s wife was fragile at the time because she lost her hair due to the medications and the treatments she was undergoing. She had a hard time accepting the way she looked so she decided to get herself a wig in order to regain her self-confidence. Her husband was extremely supportive and made all in his power to help her feel beautiful again.
His two teenage nieces were interested to touch the wig and play with it and even asked their uncle’s wife if they could have it in order to curl it and straighten it but were told they couldn’t. OP’s wife didn’t want to be seen with a bald head and wouldn’t take the wig in front of her husband’s sister and nieces.
One day, when OP came home, he could hear his wife crying. She locked herself in her room and refused to get outside. After pleading her to share with him what the problem was, she explained to him that his nieces took her wig without her consent and refused to return it. When she approached them to ask for her wig again, they started laughing and filming her.
Once she realized she was filmed, she entered the bedroom and wouldn’t leave it.
She was crushed because of the teenagers’ behavior.
Hearing this, OP rushed towards the kitchen where his sister and nieces were and confronted them. The girls handed him the wig and claimed they just wanted to have some fun and that it was all part of a prank.
He was furious and asked his sister to talk to them about their rude behavior, but she just turned to him and said that it wasn’t a big deal and that both he and his wife were overreacting. This made the man even more raged.
At that moment, although he knew they had nowhere else to go, he decided to kick them from his home.
He was welcoming and nice, and they tortured his wife as a result.
“I later let them know about the eviction since they thought I wasn’t serious, and they started crying, begging that I let it go,” the man stated. His sister started crying and begged him to change his mind, but he wasn’t having any of her excuses.
She then involved their father who also tried to convince his son not to kick his sister out of the house.
The man wanted to know if he overreacted as his sister believed or he did the right thing standing up for his sick wife.
Redditors shared their opinions. “NTA. They’re 16, old enough to know better and understand that actions have consequences,” Aunty_Fascist stated, adding that the girls were at fault for disrespecting the wife.
“If my son did that at 16, I would flush his phone down the can, lock up the keys to the car, and ground him until he’s 25,” another user added.
“How would they feel if someone shaved THEIR heads and started filming and laughing?” laulau88foo wondered, claiming the girls were rude and the man was kind to let them stay at his house.
