So I'm in a difficult situation. My Grandfather (Dad's Dad) recently passed. It appears, totally unexpectedly that I have been left a little something.
A little history on my Pops. He had a complex sense of humour which was very confusing as a child. He was the sort of guy that would offer to fund a Political Science degree at an awesome university or a Law degree at a backwater (no ones ever heard of it Uni) University. One would guarantee you a job in South East Asian Politics with the Govt that you didn't want and the other would guarantee you endless searches with a good degree from a Uni that no one had heard of.
I have been left $10,000 BUT must buy either an Invicta S1 Rally or a Sub, which by the way he wore for 37 years. I have to choose the sub or the alternative and if I choose the alternative I have to donate the difference to the Catholic Church (he was an atheist). This is so typical. Everything was a puzzle to him. Everything was a lesson and an extreme. I don't feel duty bound to "do the right thing" by the way. The old boy once contacted a friend from the Taupo Times who published a photo of me holding a huge rainbow trout he claimed I had caught and then the next day forced the paper to issue a correction stating I had made it out of paper, flour and water. Why? God only knows. But he was a laugh.
He was not a WIS but loved his Rolex. I think because it was one of the only things in his life that didn't give him crap. Ill bet he's never heard of any other watch brand let alone Invicta but he loved a prank.
What to do?
