"She told me she would never forgive me for what I did. I told her she should be thanking me."
There is barely anyone we can trust blindly anymore. This only gets worse when one has kids. One man took to Reddit to share an incident he had with his sister and her kids. While the whole thing may make it seem like he was heartless, he does have a point. The man shared that he was randomly on his way to a store when he saw two kids with a dog talking to a man that looked rather shady. He went closer to see what the whole thing was about and that's when he realized that the kids were his sister's children. Somehow, he wasn't that confident about the man the kids were talking to, so he went ahead and spoke to the kids.
The man shared: I took a random trip to the store today. I thought I was tripping because I thought I saw my 6 and 8yo nephews outside the store with their dog. I don't live with them. I went over to them and it was them. And they were talking with some random dude sitting with them and petting their dog. He went ahead and asked what they were doing outside the store. However, it seems like the guy who was talking to the kids had some other intention because he did not seem happy to be interrupted. I asked them what were they doing and the dude looked at me. He asked me if I was their dad and I said "close enough - I am their uncle. Are you their dad?" He walked away.
My nephews told me their mom was inside shopping and they couldn't go in because of the dog they just adopted. I told them that was not cool, but it was okay because I was going to take them to get ice cream. OP, on purpose, did not tell his sister that he had her children and that he was taking them for icecream. The ice cream store is across the way from the store so I could see her freak the fuck out when the boys weren't there. She was in the store for 30 minutes. Eventually, he felt his sister had worried enough, so he called to let her know that the kids were safe with him. I called her and she was hysterical that someone took her kids. I said I had them and we were at Baskin Robbins.
She got pissed and asked me why I had them. I asked her why the fuck is she leaving (them) outside the store. She said it was safe. I said tell that to the weirdo I caught talking to them and getting a little too close. What if I had not been there? What if something happened inside? I told her she put them in a bad situation. She came over to take them home and was still in tears. She told me she would never forgive me for what I did. I told her she should be thanking me. Surprisingly, a lot of people think the mom made a mistake by leaving the kids out alone. However, there were people who thought it was okay to leave the kids out alone, too.
