Now here’s some touching news that will make you want to have a dozen kids: Parents of a twentysomething man in China — a man who still lives with his parents, mind you — have to pay their son 100 yuan ($15) every time they want to speak to him… or else he won’t respond.
According to the man’s parents, their son’s cell phone is always switched off and he somehow always manages to avoid meeting them when he enters or leaves the house.
“Once I left 100 yuan outside his room’s door with a note asking him to call me back, and he did,” the man’s father said.
“Ever since then, we have to leave a 100-yuan note outside his door if we expect him to call us.”
Another way to get him to call…? Change the locks on the door.
