Today, I was at the reading of my grandma's will. Apparently I was removed from it some time ago, and the £2,500 I would have gotten went to my cheating bitch of an ex-fiancée. It seems my grandma adored her, and never forgave me for "driving her away" from the family. FML

Why are you guys so concerned over a typo? They happen all the time. I'm sure everyone who commented on the typo has made one themselves. There is a bright side. He just has to figure out what that bright side is. There is always a silver lining to everything in life. One must only be able to discover it.

Life is but a learning experience. FYL definitely OP. RIP to grandma but don't let this taint the image or relationship you had with your grandma. It's no good to you to hold resentment towards your late grandma over some money. Substantial amount or not, don't let this be the way you remember her. I'm sure you could try talking to your ex about the situation and try to work something out, if it's truthfully that important to you. And I know I'm going to get some thumb downs because I'm not directly on OPs side, but being more concerned about the money apart from the death of a family member doesn't exactly side with my morals. Blood should be thicker than money. Regardless, like I said, FYL OP, I'm sorry for all your loses.

#24, I agree it should be blood should matter more, when a will favours sometime who treated you, or the deceased badly over yourself, it hurts in a weird way. I've "lost out" in a will to someone manipulative, but the anger was more that the person who died was manipulated and the nasty person benefited. I'd have rathered it was given to a charity or burnt in my situation.

Losing out on money sucks when you've lost the person either way, but OP lost out to someone who betrayed him, due to his grandmother preferring her. That's a hell of a betrayal in itself. It's bound to take a while to forgive and forget.

If I broke up with my fiance due to infidelity, and my grandma cut me out of her will in favor of leaving my portion to my cheating ex, I'd be pretty pissed at both of them, and grandma's grave would become my favorite urinal for a while.

That's tough that your own kin would do that to you, yet it sounds like your fiancee was nicer to her than you were when she was alive. Cheating is terrible but I think this is more to do with your relationship with your grandma than it is about your ex's infidelity. I guess the amount of FYL is cancelled by how much YDI; I abstain from voting.

OP specifically states that the whole thing was a surprise, implying that he felt he had no reason to suspect that his grandmother viewed him so poorly.

Not necessarily. Some people dislike others (even their own relatives) based on their choices in life, their appearance or personality. And there's really no way to change that.
