So, we have a father who never wanted kids, but has been financially supporting his son for 18 years. Now, his son is demanding that he pay for his college tuition, calling him selfish for not doing so. The dad argues that he's fulfilled his obligation by providing child support and even extra money for his son's upbringing. The mom agrees with the dad, but the son is furious with both of them. Let's see what the internet thinks of this situation... 🍿😬
