Dear Ayi,

My retired father went to a free “health seminar,” where they offer a free blood pressure test and a basket of eggs for seniors who sign up for a six-month course. It sounds like a scam to me, but my father wont listen. What should I do?

Its all your own damn fault, you 不中用的 (b&zh4ngy7ngde, useless) child! While you were busy with your meaningless job, and couldnt be bothered to 花时间 (hu` sh!ji`n, spare time) for your parents, these vultures 乘虚而入(ch-ng x$ 9r r&, snuck in). What 老年人(l2oni1nr9n, elderly person) can resist hearing about 養生 (y2ngsh8ng, nourishing life) and 长寿 (ch1ngsh7u, longevity)? Granted, they will soon roll out the 补品(b^p@n, nutritional supplements) and magical 净水机 (j#ngshu@j~, water purifier) for purchase for 8,000 yuan, but I say its worth it for the company and 甜言蜜语 (ti1ny1n m#y^, sweet talk) from the staff. What else am I (I mean, your father) supposed to do with the money? Leave it to you?
