Teen gets grandparents to scold dad for forcing her to share gift with stepbrother.

Teen gets grandparents to scold dad for forcing her to share gift with stepbrother.


Grandparents love spoiling their grandkids. Especially the ones that put the time in with them. On a popular Reddit thread, one grandchild puts in work and gets rewarded but doesn't want to share his reward.

AITA for outing my dad to my grandparents because I was forced to share my car?

My (17F) parents divorced when I was 6; my dad remarried when I was 10 to my step-mom, who has a kid (16M); my stepbrother's dad is not in the picture (neither is my mom, so we both live full time in the same house).

I'm pretty close with my parental grandparents because I spend the whole summer with them and help them around, my step-brother is always invited, but he never comes. It's not that my grandparents don't love him or accept him, but they're not close.

Always invest in your grandparents, kids.

For my 17 birthday, my grandad gave me his old truck, and I was over the moon; it's a classic that he owned when he was 17 himself and took genuine care of it; it doesn't look brand new, but it works as good as new, and it's super sentimental.

Sharing is caring.

I've loved that truck ever since I was a kid, and I'm so happy it's mine, my grandad and I were making plans so I could paint it pink and change the seats, but it turns out that per my dad's comment, I can't since it's not just ''my truck'' but also my stepbrother's.

Unless you don't want to share.

I said nu-uh, my grandad gave it TO ME, it's mine, and I can do whatever I want with it (it's still under my grandad's name, but I pay the insurance and gas ). My dad said it wasn't fair because they didn't get him a truck on his birthday, so it's only fair I have to share.

This is how Darth Vader was made.

We fought FOR DAYS, but I was eventually forced to give up the key so he could make a copy; I despise every moment my step-brother drives my car, I hate the f*cking schedule my dad made because it favors him and I hate my stepbrother because he just went with it.

Sometimes you need to snitch.

It never occurred to me to tell my grandad what was going on, but this past Friday, he and my grandma came to give me a pink plate frame that he found and offered to change it for me. I said thank you, but that I couldn't, and I just spilled everything, the schedule, the forced sharing, the yelling, the copy of my key, and the fact that I couldn't change the truck to my liking because my SB wasn't going to drive ''a pink car''.

Dad is in trouble.

My grandad was FURIOUS. He went inside and yelled at my dad, demanded a copy of my step-brother's key, and said that if he ever drove that truck again without my permission, he was calling the police to get him arrested.

My dad's mad, like... real mad; he said it was wrong on so many levels because my step-brother was ''innocent'' and that I made my grandad berate him for ''nothing''; he called me a selfish and entitled brat and is threatening me to make me pay rent for what I did. My step-brother called me an AH and said I could've just ''asked for the truck''.

Your dad sucks.

'he called me a selfish and entitled brat and is threatening me to make me pay rent for what I did.'

Your grandparents need to know about this too.

NTA, but I think you should ask Grandpa to hang on to the truck for you until you’re 18 and/or out of the house, and don’t need to worry about anyone trying to force you to share. (And speaking of 18, remind Dad that unless he wants to have a conversation with the cops anyway, he can’t charge you rent.)

SeniorDay says:

You’re 17? Just go ask your grandparents if you can stay with them. Get a little job to help out.

OP, your dad is playing favorites! Maybe he's jealous that his dad likes you better than him.
