Today, my husband's rich aunt and uncle came in town and handed us an envelope and said we hope this helps out with the student loans. Inside the envelope was just an article on new student loan procedures and how to get lower payments. FML
They don't exactly owe you ANYthing, so not really a FML.
What's wrong with all these miserable and cyncical commenters out there?! The OP didn't say she expected money, the fact that they relatives had money isn't even important. It was that the way the aunt and uncle had set her up was disapointing. If they had said "we found this interesting article about getting lower student rate payments, we think it might help you", then that would be fine. I HIGHLY doubt that the OP would have complained or had any problem with that at all. But being handed an envelope and told that it should help their financial problem, that underhanded, indirect delivery gives the impression that money is involved. What else is delivered in such a way?
Let's use a comparison: James Bond needs to infiltrate a highly secure base. Beforehand, someone comes up to him and hands him an envelope saying, "This should help you get inside". He opens it up to find an article on lock-picking. Think he'd be a bit pissed? Sure, he would have gotten inside on his own eventually and certaintly didn't expect anyone else's help, but after being presented with an envelope in that manner, wouldn't it be reasonable to expect a little more?
Speak your mind, but please try and be respectful.
