"Should I start being more selfish or should I pretend this is not hurting me and continue to give large allowances and presents? It'll be very obvious if I do that. What do you all think?" the man wrote, asking netizens for advice.

SINGAPORE: The oldest of three brothers took to social media asking if he should have cared for himself more since his parents have decided to cut him out of his inheritance.

In an anonymous post to Facebook page SGWhispers, the man wrote that he was married but his younger two brothers were not. “So my parents are already old and they told me that I’m not inheriting the HDB flat since I already have my own HDB flat. They don’t have any savings nor cpf since I’m the one giving the most allowance all these years”, he added.

The man wrote that he felt hurt, used and disappointed. “I don’t feel loved by my parents. I didn’t asked (sic) to be first born. As a first born, I take care of them the most including my younger siblings. I contributed the most and the longest. I have my own family too. I have to take care of my wife and my retirement”, he wrote. He explained that his wife’s family also excluded her from their will because she had a flat.

“I regretted a little, not to take care of myself more, and be a little more selfish to my parents and in-laws. Should I start being more selfish or should I pretend this is not hurting me and continue to give large allowances and presents? It’ll be very obvious if I do that. What do you all think?” the man wrote, asking netizens for advice.

Netizens who commented on his post sympathised with him but also advised that he loves his parents unconditionally and takes care of himself at the same time.

Here’s what they said:

Earlier this year, a man working from home took to social media to call out the Auntie working at the coffeeshop near him because she was rude.

In an anonymous post to popular confessions page SGWhispers, the man wrote that he went down to the coffeeshop nearby to buy his lunch.

“The moment i speak to the auntie to place my order, she was already expressing her unhappiness in the way i talk”, he wrote, adding that he made sure to be polite in the way he spoke to her.

“Then she proceeded to say in hokkien that “kids nowadays dont work and only take money from parents”. Then she proceeded to tout me in verbal ways, seemingly hoping i will respond back and start an argument with her. Take note i have never talked to his auntie before”

The man wrote that he did not respond to the Auntie’s comments, paid for his food and left.

He then added: “Auntie, my 1 month salary maybe can probably equate to half a year of your annual salary. I don’t take but give money to my parents so that they don’t need to around with people like you. Not happy to work just stay at home and watch your tv or something. Not every “kid” will tolerate your monkey behaviour like how some of us will”.

Netizen says that coffee shop Auntie was rude to him, she said “kids nowadays don’t work and only take money from parents”
