is it okay to take back a gift given 18 years ago.
when my aunt passed away 18 years ago, my “close” cousin gave me one of her moms rings which i thought was really nice of her.
now 18 years later, she gave me some cock and bull story that her dead mother came to her in a dream to get the ring back. what a dream! i was very close with my aunt. my cousin lives in calif., i live 3,000 miles from her. her parents lived 10 miles from us.
we treated her parents like they were our parents. i thought what she was asking was outrageous and totally out of line. i told her i wouldn’t part with it and she called me all kinds of names and hung up on me. we haven’t spoken since. (one month).
was i okay in reacting this way? am i wrong or is she.
thanks for your reply, marlene
