Poor actions always have poor consequences. Here’s an incident that revolves around similar plot!
A netizen recently asked, “Am I a jerk for suing my girlfriend after she had my 1967 Impala project taken to the scrapyard?”. We need you to find out!
The Original Poster (OP) had a 1967 Impala 4 door that he bought in Feb 2019. A couple of months ago he bought his first house that had a 2.5 acre car garage. OP moved the car in and started tearing it down for a complete restoration.
“I had the body in one bay and the chassis in another, plus the whole garage filled with parts.”, says OP.
About Two Months Ago
About two months ago, OP’s girlfriend came to live with him during this whole crisis and the whole time has hated that car. She wants to park in the garage, but OP has 2 acres of land with a lot of nice places to park under shady trees or hell even in the barn if it has to be inside.
What Did OP Tell
“I tell her tough luck it’s my house and it’s not like I can just throw it back together real quick.”, says OP.
Anyways, OP was out of town for a couple of days on a business trip for the small local company he works for.
When OP Got Back From His Trip
When OP got back, his girlfriend was all smiles. Making him food all the time, doing all the chores, all that. OP thought maybe she was just happy to have him home but then he realized that he didn’t see her car in its usual spot.
OP asked her where she parked so he could make sure he mowed that area and keep it clean and she said not to worry because she parked in the garage. OP asked how and she told him to go check it out.
Turns out that while OP was gone, she hired some people to come over and move everything related to that car, including the drive-train, body, chassis and all parts, and take it to the local dump/scrapyard. OP was absolutely dumbfounded.
“I had spent over 11k on that car including new parts, services, and the car itself.”, says OP.
What Did OP Do Next?
OP told her that he was going to be taking her to court for that and she brushed him off like he was being dramatic. OP told her that it was done between them and to pack her things and leave.
What Does OP Say?
“I admit I was really angry but I did end up getting a lawyer. As I have all the receipts for all that money spent and I have her on my house’s security camera footage letting the guys in and watching them take it all I think I can win.”, says OP.
Everyone Else’s Reaction
The girlfriend’s family and friends are absolutely blowing OP up saying it’s just a stupid old piece of junk that she cannot pay back all that money OP spent, and that he should just let it go.
“But I have been putting all my time, effort, and money into that car for a year and a half now and imagine now even getting justice for what she did. Am I a jerk?”, asks OP.
That’s Pretty Much Messed Up!
“Not the jerk. Relationship-wise: this was a gross overstep on her part just to get her way on something minor. Ending the relationship immediately was the right thing to do.
Legal wise: Don’t destroy something you can’t afford to replace. Take her down, let her pay it off over the next few years.”
Wow, Just Wow!
“Not the jerk. That is messed up and I can’t believe anyone is defending that behavior. I mean maybe if you were married for years and that stuff had been sitting around for like 10 years or something and it was also her house I could see an argument…but none of that is the case here. I would be livid. Wow just wow. Yeah unless she can get it all back somehow she owes you.”
Her Ability To Repay Does Not Even Matter
“Not the jerk, her ability to repay or not has no bearing on the fact that she did something that caused you financial harm. If she didn’t want to be responsible for the cost of replacing it she shouldn’t have taken the risk of disposing of it without your consent.”
