What you would do if you were in this sitution ?
So about 6 years ago, you and your siblings were discussing about some so called "insurance" should anything happen to your mother..then you and your siblings decided to take up an insurance policy to help to reduce the "would be" burden,just to make sure that no one should be burdened financially?
A pact was reached, an insurance policy was purchased, and you and your siblings agreed to "equal share " the premium every month, say the X amount each person had to fork out.
It was going on as agreed,some how or rather, along the way, you forgot to ask your siblings to contribute as promised when the mode of payment was switched to "standing instruction" via your credit card, so now you have been religiously paying the premium and you have forgotten to ask them about the portion of their shares...................the X amount.
Now,suddenly you feel that you are in a "tight' situation financially and the amount that you were supposed to save on your children's education fund was in a way sacrificed and you feel that it is the time to kind of voice up to your siblings once again to get them to "contribute" their shares as promised.
It has been 4 years or so that you have been "carrying on" alone this burden and sometimes because of this burden, the monthly allowance that you are supposed to give to your mother was sometimes reduced and you really feel bad in "short changing" your own mother.
The X amount is not that "big" if it is spread out but if it is all alone, it might just be a burden to you, the insurance premuim and the monthly allowance (of which you really don't intend to reduce because you love your mother)
So,, what you would do? Continue as if everything is "business as usual" and hurt yourself a little here and there or voice up your burden and remind them of their pledge but risk being label as the "bad guy"
So I told my friend to hang it there but he said too heavy,too hard sometimes,,,,
P/S " You don't blame them for forgetting but would they blame you for reminding ?
