I am not going to name an ethnic group here, but from this story I am sure you can fill in the blanks...Anyway, I work in the insurance industry and this guy has a XXX,000 policy on his son (6 x's more than his sis's pol), and on his daughter a XX,000 policy - the son and daugther are a couple of years a part from each other...Well, the father doesn't see why he should have a policy on his daughter. Arh, I couldn't believe my ears...so he plans on cancelling the policy for his daughter and is going to keep the one on his son...wow, I really taken back by that whole experience. Guess different cultures value son's over daughter's ~ I have heard about this but never really thought about it until this whole experience...wow!! I am still speechless!!!!
