Dad Makes Kid Think Twice About Asking for Money with "Official" Bank Letter

A picture of a letter written by a St. Louis dad to his 6 year old son is going viral, and it takes passive aggressive parenting to the next level.
The young boy asks for an advance on his allowance and received this instead: “We regret to inform you at this time that we are unable to provide a loan in the amount requested of $20.00. After reviewing your account, we have found you have insufficient funds, and a history of not doing your chores.”
The hysterical note — complete with fake logo for “DAD Savings and Loan” up in the top corner and “Because apparently I look like I’m Made of Money” — doesn’t stop crushing the boy’s dreams there.
“Furthermore, over $80.00 has been spent on discretionary entertainment expenses since Christmas. This is an unsustainable amount of expenditure, and we cannot further compound the problem by financially assisting with incurring further debt at this point.”
In the closing, the boy is offered a chance to dispute the “bank’s” decision by contacting the “complaint department” (mom’s cell). We’re dying to know how this turned out, but in the meantime, we’re praising this dad’s creative parenting styles. Talk about #ParentingGoals!
