Woman Sells Her Partner’s Prized Heirloom Car for a Mere $400 After a Petty Fight About Cats
Sustaining a relationship is hard and both parties are bound to get into arguments while living together. There are a dozen ways to shoot yourself in the foot and ruin your relationship resulting in a bitter breakup, emotional whirlwinds, broken hearts and crumbled egos. Now, imagine your partner selling a prized possession of yours after an argument. What if the prized possession has been a family heirloom passed down from one generation to another, and is still in pristine shape? Well, this Reddit user, u/Polaritium posted about what caused him to break up with his girlfriend on the subreddit of r/TrueOffMyChest.
The post started with the Reddit user giving a brief background check about himself and his ex-girlfriend. "My girlfriend and I have known each other for around 4 years but started dating in 2021. "That car has been passed down for GENERATIONS by the way. It's a 1972 Ford F100 my grandpa owned, then passed down to my dad, then passed down to me," u/Polaritium wrote. He further wrote how he had a petty argument with his girlfriend where she accused him of not taking proper care of their cats. "She got the pickup truck, went to a junkyard and sold it! Worst part? She sold it for 400 dollars," he continued about the sad situation.
u/Polaritium went ahead to file a police complaint for the "stolen" F100 and tried searching for it in nearby junkyards with little to no hope of finding the car. "My dad also got the news and was super sad, considering that truck was pretty much the family's breadwinner for about 30 years," the guy added. By then he has also broken up with his girlfriend and consulted his lawyer, who is also his cousin, to sue her.
Thankfully, this story had a positive ending. According to u/Polaritium, the F100 was discovered in a nearby junkyard by a friend and his ex-girlfriend was charged with a C1F for GTA and fined $5,000. Fellow Reddit users shared their thoughts on the ugly situation with u/Few-Notice4474 writing: "It's illegal to sell someone's property when it's not yours. The truck had sentimental value. And all over an argument about a cat? I love cats but I love someone I can trust more. You're not in the wrong. I would do the same thing." u/Tragarful_Law also commented in favor of the guy and said: "You not wrong, she stole from you in an effort to hurt you and get her way. Hope things work out in your favor."
Many people praised the guy for doing the right thing to get back at the woman for what she did and get his car back, but some people doubted that this could be a made-up story posted on the forum and pointed out some inconsistencies as well. Rest assured, the prized F100 came back home and this guy can possibly hand it down to his next generation someday.
