KOBE, UNCLE JOHN IS CONFUSED!
I want to start this Article by apologizing to you. Last week it was inappropriate of me to offer any suggestions to you, since I did not have the information then that I have now. A lot of information has been sent to me by readers, and others have approached me in person. The first impression that most people had, and that includes me, was that you could have been nicer to your mother. It was ironic that this incident came to light in the week before Mother's Day. During this period of time, most people are buying gifts and proclaiming their everlasting love and affection for their Mothers. This is as it should be, because we owe so much to them, all of us would like for our mothers to be happy.
The first impression that most of us had was that this was a simple issue of your mother wanting to buy her a $450,000 house. It was reported that you offered to give her $250,000, and she was not amused. In addition, it appears that she had an ace in the hole. She could have some of your stuff auctioned off, and this effort would give her a lot more money, and you would not be able to stop her from doing so. She recognized that you would not be pleased, but she was willing to live with that, if she had the money from the auction.
There were many comments from those who feel that you have been very generous with your parents. There are also comments that they did not seem to realize that you are earning the money, and that you could legally keep all of it, if you chose to do so. In addition, you were dealing with family friction between your wife and your family, so that anything that you did for one would cause problems for you with the other. My sources say that you have been locked into a 17 year financial tug-of-war.
