If you really, really like your stuff, you want to make sure it goes to the right people. That will take some tough, thorough thought for a good number of the items. Of course, most of these items will be rather…unnecessary. Like in this story, which names things like a toilet paper holder or a magazine basket.
Some of those things will be quite well-liked, even if it’s just because it’s something the Grandma and Grandpa used to have. Some of them, on the other hand, will really just be some extra junk that is now taking up space in other people’s homes. But that didn’t stop this lady, nope.
Well, That's Quite a Shock
We really, really hope that nobody reading has to find out that they're adopted after their parents have passed. This interesting tale not only has this eye-popping revelation, but also the revelation that the adopted son won't be getting anything in the will. That's a rough couple of days.
The will did get contested – just over the amount, not that the biological son wasn't willing to give anything – but we don't know how it ended up. We also don't fully understand some of the legal terms, so your guess is as good – or better – than ours about the details.
Time to Get Healthy, Kids
Ah, moms. They want their kids to be at their best, even after they've shuffled off the mortal coil. This lady decided even though she was gone, she would force two of her sons to make the right choices for their lives. One of them had to face his fear and go under the dentist's drill, while the other had to throw out the snacks and hit the treadmill.
Both are good things to do with regularity. Actually, the wording of the story makes us think that only one son had his inheritance held, but one of the things that had to happen was his brother had to lose seventy pounds. That will increase the pressure.
Just Go and Have Some Fun
There's lots of stuff that gets related inside wills, from burial wishes to inheritance and more. In this case, it turned out to be quite a bit more casual than some of the other things on this list. Right after this man was buried, he wanted his family to go to the zoo. That's all. Maybe it was because he – or they – loved the zoo, and wanted to make sure that they got to enjoy it one more time for him.
Or, maybe they all hated each other, and this was his last attempt to get them to reconcile their differences by doing something that is usually pretty fun.
Still Has Her Fingers in the Pie
Moms are nosy kinds, and we've come to discover that there are plenty who will continue this tactic even after their demise. This mom wanted her daughter to divorce her husband in order to inherit part of the estate, even though the woman was perfectly happy with her beau. Or not willing to divorce him, anyway.
As the story relates, it's not legally enforceable for what is most likely a complicated legal reason. A will isn't a legally binding contract between people, and even caveats are likely to be shot down in court. These things are complicated.
