A rich mom thought she still had the advantage of visiting the son she’d abandoned ten years ago to request a favor. However, little did she know he’d come back smiling with more than what she asked for.

Redditor just_a_farmer_ had turned 20, but the scars of his past involving his parents’ divorce ten years ago still sat fresh in his memories.

Tossed to the side by his estranged mom and siblings, this young farmer knew what he had to do when the woman came to him asking for money, and Reddit’s “Entitled Parents” sub hasn’t stopped applauding & upvoting his incredible “payback.”

Before detailing the incident, the Original Poster (OP) gave readers a little synopsis of his parents’ split. At the time, OP’s mother dropped a bomb on the family by revealing his younger two siblings, aged 7 and 8, weren’t his father’s after his dad caught her cheating.

She disclosed she’d found a better man who’d give her the luxurious life she wanted, unlike OP’s father, who was a farmer trying to hold his family together while managing his dad’s farm.

The legal battle ended in court, where the woman refused to take custody of OP. She sidelined him for the rest of his life until recently, when she realized he could be of financial help.

On the day of the incident, the young man was busy feeding the cattle at 7:30 am when his dad hastily rushed into the feedlot and informed him someone was waiting to meet him. Reading the angry look on his face, OP asked no further about who it was and immediately hopped off the tractor. 

He went to her smiling and then asked her to hold her hand out.

He saw a brand-new Porsche and, upon closer gaze, spotted his mother in the driver’s seat. He walked to her politely, clueless of her intentions and how she’d seed his late grandfather’s will into the conversation.

The woman smirked when she first caught sight of OP, asked him if he had anything better to wear than his “filthy rags," and told him he was an embarrassment dressed like that. The guy told her those were his work clothes and asked her what she wanted.

Throwing a disgusted gaze on him, the woman said it would be fair if he gave up the inheritance he got from his late grandfather. It turned out that the late grandpa had initially set aside $25K to his three grandchildren before the mother revealed the younger two had a different father. 

Following the divorce, she’d insisted to her father-in-law that her two kids be entitled to his money, but the man refused, saying only his actual grandkids would get the money and put the $50K in OP’s name.

After the grandpa’s passing, OP’s dad had added some of his inheritance into the will, beefing the value to around $93K. OP spent $27K on a tractor and has been since adding his savings to it.

When OP asked his mother why he should help his sister, she told him it was his responsibility as her elder brother to take up her fun expenses so that she needn’t work any petty jobs. Moments into their heated conversation, the mother asked OP if he wouldn’t do “this much” for his sibling.

He downright declined and told his mom she needed to make her rich second husband work harder if she wanted her daughter to go to an expensive college. That’s where the woman lost her cool and lashed out at OP, saying "even just a little bit" would help, compelling him to retaliate in the best way he knew how.

Putting his plan in motion, he quickly apologized to his mother, saying she did deserve the money. Then he told her he was going to his truck to get his checkbook.

He hurriedly left and when he returned, he smiled and asked her to hold her hand out. Just as the woman watched in awe, he dropped the 20 or so pennies he’d gathered from the cupholder in his truck moments ago.

Surprised, the mom asked "What's this?" and OP told her he had just given her the “little bit” she’d asked for.  This enraged his mother who clarified she meant a few thousands then tossed the pennies angrily while screaming at him at the top of her lungs.

The satisfying episode urged OP to bring the matter to the internet’s notice where people couldn’t stop condemning his entitled mother.

“Why is it suddenly your job to help pay for your sister’s education? She sounds unhinged. The entitlement is astronomical,” Redditor InformalGarlic2285 stated. User WittyButter217 further added:

“It wasn’t even for her education. It was for her “fun money” so she wouldn’t have to work during college.”

Meanwhile, some people were curious why OP’s mother stayed with his father until he found out she cheated on him instead of leaving immediately.

“Tell you the truth, I don’t know what her intentions were, but I think she was trying to hide the fact she was cheating by making us look like a “normal” family only to get caught anyways,” OP explained

As for the mom, she sped her car angrily while OP and his father took the opportunity to watch her vanish from the farm in sheer embarrassment.

Questions to Ponder:

Is it okay for estranged parents to feel entitled to their children’s inheritance?

OP’s said his grandfather (father’s dad) had left him an enormous inheritance that included his siblings’ share after learning they were not her biological grandkids. But OP’s mother felt they were still entitled to the inheritance. Though OP refused, do you think he would at some point agree to help his siblings who had grown up with him and became casualties of his mother's infidelity? Also, is it okay for estranged parents to demand money from their children’s inheritance?

Was it fair on the mom’s part to try her luck on her son’s wealth, considering she’d abandoned him?

OP said his mother walked out on his father and him due to their agricultural background and chose a rich life with her wealthy partner. However, it’s still uncertain why she thought OP would help his sister financially despite knowing she’d abandoned him ten years ago. In what other ways would you handle the situation if you were OP?
