Wow, that is absolutely terrible that a parent would be so selfish as to force you into taking over the family business. That's why having a "family business" is pretty lame really. If it just starts out that way that's fine, but if none of your children or other close relatives want to take it over then you'll have to pass it on to someone else or just let it go. Every kid should have the chance to choose their own career path in life. Parents should only be there to help advise them when making the choice, but let the kid make the final decision.
Wow that sucks so bad,if I were you I would fuck up his business.By giving a bad name to his business,scaring costumers and talking shit about your dad.Really I am planning to learn in an university and if my parents will do something like that I will give them a peace of my mind,though there's no way they will do something that horrible to me.
I hope you're going to study in your own language at "an university." But anyway, this is a true FML. A lot of FMLs are just inconveniences or uncomfortable situations, and I'm like, oh, that sucks, but big deal, get over it. But this guy's life has truly been fucked over, and there's not much he can do a this point to change anything. Great dad you got there.
Dude you had an income already made for you, given its a bit morbid... Many people suffer quite a bit after finishing education, because they can't get a decent job and have high loans to pay back. Your business is something that isn't going out of business anytime soon.
This is true. When I first read this, I was also horrified, but #8 is kinda right. I mean yeah, it's awful you didn't get to 'do your own thing' and I would be beyond pissed myself if this happened, but you are probably pretty secure in your job and you don't have to look for a job or have ridiculous loans to pay off.
Thank you, #16, for being able to make the perfect comment. For fuck's sake, his dad killed 15 years of what he could've been... Who knows, he might've ended up as a successful lawyer or doctor? I can't believe his father did that to him. If I found this out, I think I would be devastated to the extent of clinical depression because my life, and how I live it, and what I make of it is the most important thing to me. I'm so so sorry, I honestly feel your pain, OP.
