Entitled Woman Expects Nephew To Pay For Her Son's ER Visit From Bee-Sting

Throwing a party can be very stressful, especially when you're inviting your family. Although there is 'unconditional love' in the air, there will also be unconditional judgement coming from all sides of the clan. Nobody will tell you like it is like a toxic family member, but the only issue is that you probably never asked for their input in the first place. Sometimes it is best to keep certain relatives at arm's length, or maybe just limit your contact with them to Facebook.

    It was Reddit user u/possiblyTA who asked the 'Am I The A-Hole' community if they were in the wrong for refusing to pay for their cousin's ER visit. At first glance, the writer seems like they must be in the wrong. But there's much more to the story.

    Font - My fiancée and I are expecting our first child in October. A few weekends ago we had a small baby shower at a local park. Both our families came over and it was a fun time. My cousin (27M) came with my aunt and while we didn't interact too much I know he was playing with our younger cousins plus my nieces out on the grass. My cousin unfortunately learned that he's severely allergic to bees in the worst way possible. He got a couple stings on his foot and my aunt was trying to help him fee

    The narrator provides some much-needed context. They explain that they wanted to throw a baby however with their fiancee as they are expecting their first child. This should be a very nice and wholesome event. But sometimes family drama is unavoidable.

    Font - Next thing I know I'm hearing from my mom that my aunt just called 911 and the ambulance got there to take him away. We were all very scared for him but luckily we heard from her a few hours later that he's going to be okay. I spoke to my cousin some time after to ask how he's been doing and he told me the ambulance plus the ER visit have fucked him up. They're charging close to $3k or around there and he's saying I gotta pay it off. I asked him why in the hell would I do that and he says

    Font - I told him I'm really sorry that's happening but no one forced him to come to our baby shower. We don't have that kind of money to be spending when we have a baby on the way. I understand right now he's not working much so we can give him a small amount to help pay but no he expects us to cover the whole bill. Most of my family except my parents and sister are against me for not wanting to help him out since it was our party where he got stung.

    Font - My moms in conflict with her sister (my aunt) over this. It sucks he's in this mess with having to pay but frankly I don't see how that's our responsibility to pay, we already offered to help but not for the whole amount. That's where everyone thinks we are being assholes. Guess just wanna ask if we are with how things are going. 1.7k 3 1, Share 296

    Font - CassandraCole · 11h Asshole Enthusiast [5] NTA - it's not your fault he got stung and it's not your fault that he doesn't have insurance (i won't go into the state of medical care in this country). Your cousin should negotiate with the hospital. If he isn't working, there are likely programs to help and they'll lower his bill. G Reply 1 27 3 + ...

    Font - Alarmed_Ste•6h NTA. But OP be careful giving money. Send an email stating it's a gift an no way involved in the medical incident. It can be taken as an admission of guilt in some cases an used against you in court. Even in stupid cases like this. G Reply 1 27 3 ...

    Font - InannasPocket • 11h Asshole Aficionado [13] NTA. Sheesh, the audacity of some people! You don't control the bees or your cousin's apparently unknown allergy just by hosting a party outdoors. Tell them you'll give him a cut of any earnings you make from your newfound magical control of insects /s. G Reply 1 33 3 ...

    Font - Copper-anode · 11h Colo-rectal Surgeon [40] NTA! It's not your fault he's allergic to bees, and it's not your fault he was stung in a public park. It's very generous of you to offer to pay for part of it. You are under no obligation morally or legally to pay $3k. 6 Reply 1 307 3 + ...
