It’s common sense that if you (or your dependents) lose or break something that isn’t yours, you should pay out of pocket to replace it, especially when that something is a $30,000 piece of jewelry that was stored out of reach in a place where your little goblins shouldn’t have been in the first place. I wouldn’t blame anyone related to this incident if they refused to let this parent and their children into their homes ever again.
The Redditor, u/throwaway1846189, shared this story to Reddit’s r/AmItheA**hole subreddit, appealing to the popular Reddit community to see whether or not she was in the wrong for demanding repayment for the ring. While commenters seemed to be consistently pointing out that it was strange not to have a $30,000 item insured, they ultimately seemed to be of the mind that the brother should be seeing to its replacement.
That’s Reddit’s thoughts; what’s your judgment?
