    The thread about Tori Spelling brought me to start this thread.

    Her story is well known. Didn't get along with daddy and he essentially left her out of his will.

    I am in a somewhat similar situation. It is a significant amount I could inherit but not over $1M.

    I earn a decent living, but could still use the possible inheritance.

    I am not going to bore anyone with the details of the family problems. Basically, I am dealing with emotionally unstable people that I want nothing to do with. I can not reason with them on any level with most issues. My philosophical views are completely different.

    I would like to erase them from my lives, but it would cost me an inheritance.

    What would most people do?

    If the people are that bad and you are fine on your own, fuck the money.

    I would do the bare minimum required to get the money but be prepared - even if you kissed their asses they still might cut you out if they're assholes.

    Hard one. You would have to look at it like a job. Is it worth it?

    Depending on the time you have to put in I'd say yes.

    Chicago Rapper Kills Mom for Financial Gain

    Qawmane Wilson, a Chicago Rapper Young QC, hired his friends to kill Yolanda Holmes, his mother, for financial gain. Law enforcement arrested Wilson, 24, and friends Eugene Spencer and Loriana Johnson, the driver in the murder of Holmes, an owner of an upscale salon.
    Prosecutors said Wilson wanted Holmes, 45, out of the picture to access her bank accounts and life insurance policies. Wilson ordered Spencer, 22, and Johnson, 23, to carry out the September 2012 hit while his mother lay asleep in her apartment with her boyfriend. Holmes died from a gunshot to the head and stab wounds, according to the Chicago Tribune.
    Soon after arranging the hit, Wilson took advantage of over $90,000 in bank accounts and two life insurance policies to begin living a life of luxury.
    Splattered over his Facebook, YouTube and Instagram accounts are pictures of the rapper with stacks of cash. In one video, the rapper and his “entourage” visit a Chase bank to take out $1,000 which turns into $20,000 – after which he visits a local park to throw money in a crowd. Young QC turns up in many of the images with blunt in head, flashy jewelry, guns, cars and often saying that other rappers “aren’t on his level.” A quick look at his accounts show that his former fans are now showering his page with shock instead of the usual adoration.
    Investigators caught on to Wilson’s lifestyle and pieced together clues that resulted in charges of murder and home invasion to be filed this week.

    If it makes you miserable to deal with "these people", then don't deal with them. The best thing I ever did was remove myself from some awful people in my family. If the money is that important to you, then you just have to suck it up and deal.

    From my understanding, Tori didn't get stiffed by her dad, she got stiffed by her mom. The mom got everything and doled out what she wanted.

    Get the inheritance. You might then afford $5 a month.

    It's like anything else, you avoid the topics of conflict and find innocuous things to discuss. It's no different than dealing with a difficult boss.

    If Tori would have been civil to her step mother and not flaunted her stolen husband she would be swimming in money right now. It's all about not making waves.

    What do these people do that's so unstable? If it was a job that paid a $1 million bonus, would you tolerate it? Probably. It's not like you're being forced into torture-porn.

    My rep is a pile a sh*t. I guess I won't be posting here any more. Had a feeling it might happen.

    Will still be a viewer.
