There's a lot of emotions running high from the death of a loved one. Unfortunately, the stress and struggle over the departeds' estates can only add to the tension and fighting.
However, sometimes the deceased have the foresight to enact some pretty crazy revenge in their wills and estates. You’ll be amazed at what some people dream up.
Oh, and don’t worry: there are some heartwarming ones in here, too.
Sometimes, the will just contains a few choice words for the survivors.
“‘To my wife I leave her lover and the knowledge that I was never the fool she thought me. To my son I leave the pleasure of working for a living – for 25 years, he thought the pleasure was all mine.’ Best dis ever. Was in my Wills & Trusts book in law school as an example of people talking s–t in their wills.” via DoctorDanDrangus
“A friend of mine was adopted at birth. When her mom died, the will gave half the estate to her ‘two natural daughters.’ My friend got nothing.” via Chowderhead1
Sometimes, the spiteful plan backfires.
“One client left a specific gift of $10K to one son, and left him out of the per stripes division (every family member gets an equal share of the wealth) of the residual estate, which was sizeable at the time the will was drafted. This was intended as a serious disinheritance, which he apparently talked about all the time to make the disfavored son feel bad. However, by the time he died he had a serious reversal of fortune and his estate was about $10K, so he effectively disinherited the ‘good’ children and left the black sheep everything. The bad kid appeared very poor, compared to the others, and the look of grateful surprise on the poor kids face was almost as priceless as the shock on the others who thought they were getting rich.” via AngryFloyd
Not vengeful, but someone is going to need to find an illegal substance!
“I am not a lawyer but I am deputy public administrator and we find Wills often. We deal with individuals who died without any known family or the family is estranged and we have to locate them.
One of the Wills I read said ‘NO F*CKING LAWYERS’ in the text and another one stated ‘I would like crack powder stuffed in my ears and cremated.’” via thorface
