I haven't read the entire thread, and fortunately my parents are in decent shape.  But I have a sneaky tactic for the mustachians with spendy parents: pretend to be needy.  If you know they are giving huge infusions to a sibling, ask for a comparable amount.  Then, save that money and give it back to them in 20 years, when they finally hit rock bottom with giving.

Hahahaha. That's brilliant.

Agreed, brilliant and so loving! With mustachian training you can grow that money beyond anything they could imagine possible.
