‘Exhausted Financial Reserves’ Son Comes Up With A Hilarious Way To Ask His Dad For Money

Indian kids are the financial ninjas of the household, especially those who are in college and need money to chill with their friends. They casually slide into their parents’ DMs, armed with puppy-eye GIFs, and drop a “need some cash” bomb on them which they can’t refuse.
