Family's Expectations vs. Reality 🎓💸

Our recent graduate thought he was in for a nice family dinner to celebrate his achievements. Little did he know, his family had other plans in mind. They expected him to pay for all 17 of them at an expensive restaurant, using his graduation as an excuse! 😲 When he refused, they called him selfish and accused him of turning against them. Even after leaving them $200 to help cover the bill, his aunt pocketed the money for her own use. Now, he's left to deal with angry calls and visits from his family. Let's see what the internet has to say about this jaw-dropping situation...🍿
