A Man Wants to Take His BIL to Court Over Destroyed Art Supplies & Reddit Has Its Own Verdict

A recent post on the Reddit “Am I The A—hole” thread feels a whole lot like an episode of Judge Judy, and we are definitely tuning in. The man who wrote the post is an artist. He likes to “draw and try other mediums,” and his wife Sally “dabbles a bit.”

“As such, I’ve accumulated a lot of art supplies over the past few years,” he explained. “We’ve converted one of the rooms in our home to an art studio of sorts. There’s easily a few thousand dollars worth of art supplies in that room and we tend to keep it locked for that reason.”

Of course, there was one fateful day when they forgot to lock it, and of course, things went wrong. Sally and OP hosted a party for the family party and his brother-in-law, sister-in-law, 7-year-old niece, and 6-year-old nephew. About an hour into the party, he realized the kids weren’t around and so he asked his SIL if she knew where they were. She said they were in the drawing room.

“I immediately rushed over to the art room and found it was a total mess,” he wrote. “I yelled at them to get out and they started crying. My BIL ran over and started yelling at me saying they’re just kids and it’s just markers. I told him that the markers alone were $17 a piece and he said I was stupid for paying that much.”

“Sally tried to diffuse the situation but my BIL started yelling at her too saying we can’t have this many art supplies and not expect kids to want to use it,” he said. “I told him he’s paying to replace the markers and other supplies they ruined and he told me to go f*ck myself and left. Everyone left shortly after that.”

Yeah, that sounds about right.
