A college student in China sent a parcel to her 74-year-old grandmother containing a pile of dirty clothes, which she wanted to be cleaned and sent back.

 

The 74-year-old woman in Dalian in Liaoning province recently received the parcel containing a pile of clothes and socks from her granddaughter who had just entered college, reported China Daily citing China Youth Daily.

The young woman sent the clothes to her grandmother as she couldn't wash them and wanted her grandmother to do it and send them back.

The media report said the incident mirrors, to some extent, the less-than-flattering qualities that many of today's university students possess.

It said that housework, including doing laundry, is the "first class" that should be learnt early in life, because washing clothes and knowing the basics of cooking are the fundamental qualities a person should have to survive in modern society.
