A woman has opened up about the agony she's felt over her dad wanting to name his expectant twin babies after her brother and sister, who both sadly died eight years ago.
In a situation that's unfathomable for many, after this woman endured the loss of her two siblings and mum in a car accident, she's now facing the possibility of her new siblings being named after them.
Taking to Reddit's infamous Am I The A**hole thread, the 27-year-old asked her fellow Redditors if she's the a**hole for 'kicking my dad and his wife out of my (technically their) house after they said they wanted to name their unborn twins after my deceased siblings?'
"My younger brother, sister and mom passed away in an accident 8 years ago," she explained. "My father (52m) and I used to be very close before this but we’ve drifted apart since then."
She further explained how her mum had left a lot of money for them in her will, a lot of which the poster used to 'invest and also work in the tech field' and said she'd bought the house that her father was currently living in.
The woman explained how she doesn't get along well with her dad's new wife, who has two teenage children of her own, and when they announced they were expecting twins, things took a devastating turn for the poster.
"At their gender reveal party (they are expecting a boy and a girl) my dad announced they will be naming the kids after my dead siblings," she explained.
"I’m shocked and I interrupt to tell him that naming the twins after my siblings is weird. His wife tells me to stop being jealous."
The poster also mentioned how her dad's wife didn't want to invite her to their wedding, so things were already incredibly frosty between the pair.
"I basically said that if my siblings were here they’d be disappointed in him and ashamed to call him dad since he’s been a pretty s****y one so far," she continued.
"My father told me to get out of his house and as I am about to leave his wife comes up to me and I kid you not says 'Don’t let the door hit your ass on the way out'."
The poster then explained she told her dad and his wife to 'leave her house', to which her dad called her 'pathetic' and demanded she apologise to the family.
While acknowledging she acted 'a bit emotionally' and was 'starting to feel bad for stressing a pregnant woman', the poster asked the Reddit community if she was really in the wrong.
Well, many were quick to rush to her defense, with one saying: "Sounds like they deserve one another. I feel sorry for all children, past and future, involved with those two."
Another added: "You have more patience than I do. They would’ve been dead to me right then and there."
And a third said: "Your father has chosen delusion over managing his grief, and worse he has chosen to hurt the only daughter he has left. Your stepmother is simply a disgusting person, pregnancy can't excuse that.
"How can they pretend to be honoring your dead siblings when they treat the living child like trash?"
