    Default not "request" mind you

    Dear teachers

    Could you please tell me what the following "not request mind you" means.

    One half hour ago, he walked into this office and changed the beneficiary in his policy. Then he proceeded to demand, not "request" mind you, but demand a loan of $500,000.

    Thank you in advance.
