Old Man Cremates Wealth Rather Than Give It To Ungrateful Sons

Old Man Cremates Wealth Rather Than Give It To Ungrateful Sons
An old man in Jiangsu felt that his body would soon fail, so he wished that in the last moments of his life he could go visit his son’s houses, but didn’t think that his two sons would find excuses because they didn’t want the old man to come to their homes. In the end, the old man passed away alone in his home, even wearing his burial clothes. After the old man was put in the crematorium fire the worker found money flying from the inside, as it turns out the man would rather bring 210,000 RMB into the fire than give it to his sons. Netizens were in favor of this father’s way of handling things, and said he’s an intelligent person.

    that is really sad, what happened to the filial piety that was supposed to be a chinese thing? (despite the Latin name shows that is not only chinese at all)….

    • James

      What happened to the healthy Mediterranean diet that was supposed to be an Italian thing?

      • Zappa Frank

        exactly the same thing, is gone, if ever existed.

      • plorf

        Huh? Just because Merikans think low fat and low carb is a grea tdiet now doesn’t make the Mediterranean diet any less healthy…

      Lmao only foreigners buy that “filial piety” rubbish a lot of Chinese use to market themselves and their culture. Mainland China is only about 70 years old. Ancient China and Chinese wisdom are long dead and buried.

      • Zappa Frank

        Chinese strongly believe is “typical” of their “culture”and unknown in the west, where, in their idea, old people are forced to live in a jail-like structure until they die…

    • A Gawd Dang Mongolian

      It feels like Chinese outside of China follow that concept. Even if a bit, that’s still a bit more than the mainland. Kinda sad.

  • Amused

    I wonder if he fought to keep a one digit salute on one hand as he died so they’d get that “fuck you” just in case they missed the burning dad-flavored money?

  • hahahaa!

    • Chris Bullock

      haha

  • Jahar

    he could have at least given it to charity…

    • narsfweasels

      They could have contested that, and probably would. Like the pieces of human filth they are.

  • Foreign Devil

    That’s cool, but he should have enjoyed it for himself. . maybe one last party with hookers and cocaine?

    • Hoppy1

      Lol…you wouldn’t be a Jim Jeffries fan by any chance would you?

  • WghUk

    Modern days is all about money. Time is money. Unfortunately.

  • vonskippy

    $33,000 USD – hardly a fortune to fight over.

    • jin

      Yeah but still waste of money

    • David

      It would go pretty far. However, he was in Jiangsu where things are expensive.

  • enochrox

    Everybody is siding with grandpops… theres a good chance he was a horrible father – a giant miserable bastard of a man & his sons having lived thier choldhood and adult lives with him; where finally tired of his shit… then he curled up & died alone with his money as one last act of a shitty person.

    • Zappa Frank

      yes, you are right, is a suspect that came to my mind as well..

  • A Gawd Dang Mongolian

    If they are as bad as they sound, they’ll probably just tape the charred remains together.

    “It’s just a little crispy, it’s still good!”

  • Chris Liem

    What do the sons have to say? Why is there always only one side of the story???
