A MAN has been slammed after his sister said she always paid for his holidays – but people are divided over who is at fault.
His sister, who said they rarely speak to each other, asked online if she was wrong in wanting him to pay for his own leave.
She shared how her parents, brother and two children go on family vacations together every few years.
Though she was happy to pay for her parents, she said she wasn’t happy always covering her brother
She explained to Mumsnet: “The last time we went on holiday I paid for all the hotels. I don’t mind paying for the parents, but I fully expected my brother to pay me back.
“We took turns paying for dinner. Throughout the holiday brother has paid for 1 take away pizza for us all to share and said he would be happy to buy more if needed. Of course nobody asked for more.”
“When we came back, he never contacted me. He kept it
Telling parents he owes me for weeks. Eventually Mom told him it was ok and I wouldn’t miss the money!
“To be honest I don’t want to be out of pocket because of my brother. I would much rather go alone with my children and/or with my parents. I’m sick of paying for someone who can afford their own stuff.
She added that they all earned reasonably good wages, but wasn’t sure how to approach the issue.
Most people were on her side and told her to make sure he paid her.
One person said, “Why would it be rude to ask your brother for his share in advance?”
Another added: “This is just pathetic. He’s an adult, he should be able to organize his own holidays.”
Another said: “Don’t be manipulated into this. You are an adult, a smart and successful one, so stand up for yourself.”
Not everyone was on her side, with some saying she shouldn’t go on holiday if it’s happened before.
One person wrote: “You must forget the money or ask him for it. That’s all. You don’t have to contact your parents, you have to talk to him. You are not children.”
Another person said: “Did you tell him to pay you back? Without communication, you can’t argue about what he should or shouldn’t have done.”
It’s not the first time the internet has split opinion over holiday issues — one woman after her turned away by the crew for using her phone Live stream during a flight.
And a woman shared a video of him kicking sand on a man sitting too close to her on the beach – but not everyone agreed that she was right.
