Okay, everyone! All you Ehellions pay attention! I need money so I expect every single one of you to send me $100 right away, so get to it!
How stupid does that sound? I can "expect" anything but that doesn't translate into action on anyone else's part. If she wants her son to have a whole bunch of money for graduation, then she should provide it for him and not try to visit that on anyone else. At the very most I might send him a congratulatory card, but even that is not obligatory.
But, if any of you want
to send me $100, please feel free!
