This woman won a life-changing amount in the lottery, but her boyfriend is telling her how to spend it. She told him to stop counting her money, and he called her a ‘Scrooge.’ She explains the full story.
It was a huge win
“I have won quite a lot of money in the lottery,” shared the woman. It wasn’t the main prize, but it was in the top three.
Everything was different
It was truly a life-changing sum. “I grew up poor, very poor,” admitted the woman.
She was sensible
She resisted the temptation to go wild with all that cash. Instead, she made a smart move. “I’m not touching that money until I meet with the financial advisors I hired.”
She made plans
Although she does have a few ideas on what to buy first. “I plan to use a small amount of money to enjoy and use a part to improve my family’s life,” she said. Then, she will invest what’s left to ensure she and her family can live comfortably for the rest of their lives.
Her boyfriend had thoughts
But her new boyfriend, Andy, has other ideas. In his head, he’s already spending her money.
He had a wish list
Andy wants a new Tesla. Then he wants her to buy a house with a pool so they can move in together. He’s even started talking about kids, like he’s trying to lock her down.
It was a new relationship
Andy had never been this full-on before. In fact, she’s only been dating him for seven months.
She said no
She told Andy to chill out. She reminded him that the money isn’t getting spent until she’s spoken to her advisors. And even then, she insists she won’t turn into a baller.
Andy was mad
Andy got mad. He started saying some pretty messed-up things. “He’s been calling me a Scrooge, telling me I don’t love him anymore, and calling me a cheapskate,” shared the woman.
He let the secret out
She didn’t want to tell anyone about the win. But when she said no to Andy, he blabbed about it to everyone. Now, all her friends are pressuring her to spend money on Andy and pay for their big nights out.
She looked like a jerk
She isn’t throwing all her money away on parties and friends. Her friend group has responded by calling her greedy, selfish, and a lousy friend.
She needed advice
The woman is devastated that Andy and her friends would treat her this way. It’s like they don’t care about her, just her money. They’ve even made her doubt herself. Because now she’s asking, “Am I really the jerk here? Should I be spending money on my boyfriend and all our friends?”
People supported her
“Not the jerk,” said one person. “The minute Andy shared with other people that you won this money, you should have erased him from your life. This is the kind of sabotaging move you get from your enemies, not your partner.”
“Hold onto your money,” advised another. “Money changes people. The good thing is, you’ll get to learn who your real friends are now. Those who don’t ask or expect anything from you are the ones to keep in your life. Drop the rest.”
