When is a gift not a gift? A woman who bought a lottery ticket for her nephew as a birthday gift now wants a cut after it turns out the ticket was a winner. The ticket buyer took to Reddit to figure out who the jerk was in this situation. The aunt says she’s been going through hard times financially and got her nephew some scratch-off tickets because she couldn’t afford a more expensive birthday present. Apparently one of the tickets won $50 and the other won a sum “in the middle five figures.” The aunt says she asked her sister’s family, who she notes are well off, to cut her in on the winnings, asking for 75%. The sister hung up and the nephew has now blocked the aunt. So… what would you do?
