Not-So-Great Expectations

Last week, this guy's letter to his children letting them know how much they've disappointed him went viral. Turns out he was just pulling a Charles Dickens:
Dickens grew distant once they reached adolescence, though, and insisted on settling the futures of his seven sons while they were still in their teens.  He wanted them off his hands, wanted them to pay their own way, as he had, and complained that had “brought up the largest family ever known with the smallest disposition to do anything for themselves.”
