Re: Restrictions on G*****'s use of the financial support

I am attempting to obtain some type of guideline, some rule which I may 
use to determine what kinds of things G***** is "permitted" under your 
totalitarian regime, to possess while he is in your home so that I don't 
need to bother with begging for your approval on an individual basis.  
Over the past few months you have ignored almost all of my requests 
regarding whether G***** would be permitted to have specific items (for 
example, an upgraded notebook, a MacBook).

Regarding the PS4, how could I possibly know that that would be on the 
"forbidden" list?  You never actually stated, prior to this, that it 
was...and you permitted him to have the one I got him for his last 
birthday.  So, why was he allowed to have one last year, but not this 
year?  What is the logic?  That is why I would like something in 
writing: there is no logic, no reasoning, and no consistency to your 
decisions.  You change your mind from one day to the next and don't even 
provide a justification for the change.

May you please clarify the significance of the interjection "Period" at 
the end of your previous message?  It immediately follows an actual 
period, so it seems somewhat redundant.  But, moreover, it is not 
followed by an exclamation mark, so it is clearly not intended for 
emphasis.  I protest you are the one being vague!
