Life would be so much easier if we were born with a house key in our hand, like in the fairytale about the three little pigs. Alas, we all know that real life is a little bit different from fairy tales, although, to be honest, if you inherit a house from your parents, it can sometimes be quite close to the magic world. Just imagine how happy you and your family will be when you move in there!

But it’s not that simple and easy, as one woman who inherited a house from her parents recently found out. Her friend, who claimed to have actually bought a house, confronted her and called her a jerk for revealing that it was actually her parents who bought it for her.

Now the OP is speaking an opinion from the Reddit community on whether she is the jerk in a thread that has gone viral.

Friend shocker! A woman finds out her friend's house was actually bought by their parents. 🤯

🤔 Friend reveals secret, OP reveals it too. Who's the a**hole?

The title of this story seems to put OP in a bad light, but there's more to the story! OP's friend revealed to an appliance store employee that she did buy her house but inherited it. OP was taken aback and asked why it mattered, to which her friend replied that it was just 'for the record'.

When the friend told the employee that she actually bought her own house, OP revealed that in reality, it was her parents who had bought the house for her and her partner. OP then revealed that her parents had also helped her get a house, just in a 'really terrible way'.

So, the question is, who's the a**hole? Let's see what the comments to the thread have to say about it!
