Parents Tell Daughter: Happy Birthday, We're Done With You!
We all know about rites of passage into adulthood, but this is insane! Japanese Twitter user @zamayuma1004 tweeted photos last week of the special gift his mom and dad presented him on the occasion of his 20th birthday- which is the Japanese age of legal adulthood. Beautifully wrapped in an envelope tied with red and white string was a letter titled: "Notice of Expiration of Child-Rearing Services," and its contents proved the parents weren't messing around. Inside was a letter which read: "As of October 4, 2015, your father, Yoshikazu Hasegawa, and mother, Chiaki Hasegawa, have completed their duties of raising their child: you, Yuma Hasegawa. Going forward, please become a proper and responsible member of society, like your father and mother." It then offers a bulleted list of advice for the new adult, including that Yuma pay into his pension, "not drive while intoxicated," and discuss any future possible wife with them or they "may not emotionally accept" her. They also mention the $168 they expect for rent and other household expenses and note that "should you ask for a loan from your parents, interest will be charged." It ends with, "Please enjoy your life as an adult."
