Parents of a 20-something man in Tianjin municipality have to pay their son 100 yuan ($15) every time they want to speak to him.

According to the man's parents, their son's cell phone is always switched off and he somehow always manages to avoid meeting them when he enters or leaves the house.

"Once I left, 100 yuan outside his room's door with a note asking him to call me back, and he did," the man's father said.

"Ever since then, we have to leave a 100-yuan note outside his door if we expect him to call us."
