    Default The King of Spoiled Brats Wants More Money from Rich Daddy

    In 2011 David Dawes won the lottery to the tune of $178 million dollars. He gave his son $1.8 million as a generous gift. The son quit his job and went on an all out spending spree. Soon after, all the money was gone. His father helped him again and gave him another $800,000.00 to bail him out of additional debts he incurred. At the same time, he told his son.....this is it. The son wasted that money and went back for more but dada said no. The son then took him to court and sued his own father. The judge saw right through this matter and threw the case out.

    I just thought this to be an interesting story and wanted to share it. Do you think the dad was wrong in not providing his son with more? Do you think the son was wrong? What are your thoughts on this whole matter?

    I'll second that.

    So let me get this straight: dad gives sonny boy a total of $2.6 million and learns that the son is a spendthrift who cannot be trusted with money?

    Seems like a decent way of qualifying who is in the will....

    As stupid as Dad sounds, he'll probably only be leaving his debts.

    He is apparently smart enough to recognize that his son is a nitwit when it comes to handling money.

    Many entertainment celebrities and athletes aren't exactly geniuses in money management.

    So the son is culturally in tune with societal entitlement attitudes and behavior in the post great depression generations.
