A lonely Chinese pensioner has recently posted a newspaper ad looking for a family willing to adopt him in exchange for his monthly pension. Read more from the OddityCentral:
75-year-old Huan Qi lost his wife in 1999, and all his relatives are either to busy or live to far away to visit him regularly. Tired of waking up to an empty house every day and feeling lonely and miserable, Huang decided desperate times require desperate measures.
He posted an ad in the local paper hoping to find a kind family willing to adopt and care for him in exchange for his monthly 6,000 yuan ($970) pension. He realises that the agreement will have to be beneficial to both parties, so he’s willing to let the chosen family live in his home rent-free, or move in with them if that’s what they want, and let out his own home.
Huan only asks two things of the family that decides to adopt him: that they understand his house will be inherited by his son and that they bury him next to his wife after he dies. He has already made arrangements for the burial expenses to be taken out of his savings, so not to burden his caretakers.
