Sister: Yeah, so I called out Dad about how he hasn't been such a good dad and how he doesn't give me as much money as Mom.

Brother: It's true! Mom gave me $20 last week and he only gave me $5. WTF!?

Sister: I know, right!? Then, he gets all sympathetic and said how much he loves me and would give me however much I wanted right then. That's when I shot the ghost and asked for $500! hahahha

Brother: HAHAH! DAMN! I bet he thought you were trippin.
