One 6-year-old boy got more than he bargained for when he asked his dad for an advance on his allowance.
Written on official DAD Savings and Loan stationary, the father's epic response proves it's never too early to teach your children the value of a dollar.
The letter reads:
"Dear [name redacted],
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 find [sic] you have insufficient funds and a history of not doing your chores.
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 occurring further debt at this point.
If you would like to refute this decision, you can contact our complaint department at [Mom's number]. Our dispute manager at this number may be able to persuade us to reverse our decision.
Thank you for choosing DAD Savings and Loan, we appreciate the chance to serve your financial needs.
CEO, DAD S & L"
He might not win Father of the Year, but this stunt certainly deserves a nomination.
Win or lose, at least he'll have a well-balanced budget as a consolation prize.
And though his son may have lost this battle against big (daddy) banking, the complaint department is known for its power of persuasion.
