Would you ask for an accidentally gifted gift back?
I got a Christmas card in the mail from my grandfather for $50, which I promptly spent on a new blanket for my horse. I also sent him a Christmas card.
Then my mother called me and said that he also sent her $25 for me, which was great.
I didn't know why he sent me money two different ways. My brother has lived at home for 2 years mostly jobless and my grandfather keeps sending my mom money to support him, in addition last year he stole all the Xmas money out of everyone's cards so I thought maybe I got extra money for being the good kid and that's why he didn't get a seperate card. I figured I'd give him a call when I get normal hours at work and thank him and maybe he'd explain it then.
So my mom calls me and says that she made a mistake and accidentally gave me half of my brother's gift, or maybe my grandfather forgot and gave me too much. Either way, she wants it back because otherwise I'm short changing my brother and he needs it more then I do. She said that if I was a good kid I'd give it back.
Am I wrong to be a little upset? I'll give the money back either way.
