Some of the staffs in the restaurant are friends of my husband, and they surprised Jashkah by singing along with the stereo while they brought out a little cheese cake for him as we were about to leave. Well, yeah...Jashkah was so embarrassed but thankful anyhow.Just an update on his birthday wish...that I sign the parental consent on his McDonald's application form...Yes, I did. I said yes but with too many conditions, mainly:
- That he only works on certain days and certain hours.
- That he maintains his school marks-if it goes bad this term, it will mean automatic resignation. No more explanations to be heard.
He said he'll even make it better...Let us wait and see.I asked him how much he'll be earning per hour, then we calculated how much he'll be earning in a week. Then I said, "...less the tax that you're paying...", he went, "What tax?"
He cringed after I explained what tax is and said, "That's not fair. Is the government really allowed to do that?"
My oh my.
WELCOME TO THE WORLD OF THE ADULTS AND REALITY MY SON!
