Youth calls grandfather 'dumb old fella' online for giving her $2 during #CNY

Youth calls grandfather 'dumb old fella' online for giving her $2 during #CNY

was shocked at seeing a youth ranting about her grandfather online for giving her $2 during Chinese New Year. The STOMPer thinks children of the internet generation have become 'rebellious and unfilial'. The STOMPer says: "I saw this picture on a local forum. A Singaporean female posted her rantings of getting only $2 from her grandfather during CNY, and continued to say that she'd rather just get $2 than speak to him. "Just goes to show how rebellious and unfilial children of the internet generation have become. "Is this how we are going to raise the next generation of Singaporeans? "If that's the case, I would rather Singapore import more FTs! Have children become so materialistic that they couldn't care less about the actual meaning of getting red packets during CNY?"

    Red packet is a form of blessing from one person (usually it is the elder/senior). The amount of money is relative. If the giver is not in a financially sound position, the amount of course will be lesser. The grandfather may not be earning any income, so why should he give more than he can afford?
    Having said that, may be he knows that this granddaughter does not deserve anything more than $2.
