The bill I gave my dad for replacing his laptop hard drive - Imgur

The invoice Reddit user Clem_Honeybutter sent her father on June 20, 2013.

“Dad, is it plugged in?”

We’ve all been there. It’s a rite of passage etched in stone, as old as the bond between father and daughters itself: helping Dad with that newfangled wheel, or if you’re in the 21st century, it might even involve fixing his laptop.

In a legendary moment of internet cool, Reddit user Clem_Honeybutter finally got fed up while fixing her father’s hard drive, and did what most tech-savvy friends and family have longed to do for years: She sent her father the bill.

In an adorable gesture, she asked for appropriate compensation. Payment? Well, just some pizza, a drink and parmesan sticks at Round Table Pizza, please.

The self-proclaimed “awesome daughter” points out that the whole process wasn’t all fun and games:

I wanted cash for the hard drive not food. That was a separate bill which is much less funny.

Judging from the comments so far, people take stuff way to serious. Yes, you can read this and see an allegory for deeper societal and social issues. Or you can take it for what it is, some levity in a family that still enjoys each other's company enough to have dinner together.

"I will be happy to pay that bill.  BTW, here is your bill for the last several years of room, board, education, healthcare, and entertainment.  When may I expect payment?

I'm sick of the thinking that children exist to be taken advantage of. I have kids and when they help out, they get rewarded in ways like she asked for, getting to pick out what we do, etc. I think this was very forward thinking of her.

The ungrateful wretch's father should have pulled out early.
