The other day my son’s karate teacher told a story about a graduation present she received from her grandmother — a photo album filled with $20 bills.
The grandmother had started saving when her granddaughter was born — adding a $20 bill each month until the 200-page photo album was filled. (It would take 17 years and 2 months to fill it and the album would contain $4,000.)
She’s not the only one who has received a gift like this — check out this woman’s story.
There’s no denying that a photo album filled with cash is an extremely thoughtful gift. There’s also a big WOW factor — who wouldn’t want to receive $4,000 in cash?
I think this gift misses the mark in three important ways, though.
