Messing With Your Kids Over their Inheritance

Dress in rags. Tell your kids you’re wasting money on blow from the neighbourhood drug dealer — like they wasted money in their youth!

Hold an intervention for Mum — she’s been sending thousands to an exiled Nigerian Prince. Tell the fam you are going abroad to help the poor guy sort out his troubles.

Inform your kids that you are signing Power of Attorney documents for their future benefit.

Should your kids ask the lawyer about the (fictitious) POA documents, or anything else, instruct him to say your Will favours the dealer.

Tell your kids their long-lost half-sibling has visited, then leave on a whirlwind trip to all the best gambling countries.

There’s no point in leaving too much to anybody!

Add a twist — tell your kids that the local drug dealer is their half-sibling.

Advise them to see your lawyer.
