Ever feel like your children just don’t appreciate how much they cost you? Maybe you should invoice them.
One smart mum has done just that, and her child has posted the invoice on the internet for all to see.
The mother from Ontario is fed up with her 23-year-old son treating her like his own personal bank account. She decided to leave him an invoice for living at home for the past 13 months, totalling a massive $39,795.86 AUD.
Redditor Chalipo uploaded the invoice from his mother, which included a $1013.80 fine for “being an unappreciative asshole.”
It also charged for expenses he took for granted, such as cleaning fees, meal charges and prescription payments.
If you look closely at the image of the invoice, you can see that contributions from his father, labelled “On account from spouse”, total $0.
Could an invoice influence who your favourite child is, because parents have one (Post continues after the video)...
The creative approach worked wonders.
“This was a very effective parenting technique and it has helped me to realize what an entitled little shit I have been… I hope one day to be successful enough to support my family and repay her but she doesn’t expect me to,” Chalipo said.
So parents, when are you sending out your own invoice?
