Don't Buy Cheap-Cheap Things!

After school today, mummy brought me to 99 Speedmart to buy a loaf of bread. While browsing some of the things in the mini market, I was attracted to some Nestle breakfast cereal which came with Spongebob/Patrick/Mr Krabs figurine free gifts. I kept hinting to her "So long never eat this, hor?" (actually mummy has never bought this for me). I repeated it a few times. That's my usual, indirect and subtle way of saying "I want...".

However, mummy had only RM10 in her pocket and that box of cereal cost RM8.50. Since that loaf of bread was her priority, she told me "I don't have enough money, dear. This cereal is too expensive. Mummy got very little money only. Can only buy cheap-cheap things. Next time, ok". I accepted her explanation and did not make any fuss.

Later in the evening, I asked her "Why you never go to work? You go to work then you can earn lots of money then you don't buy cheap-cheap things anymore lah!"

Mummy was deeply shocked to hear that. Amboi... only 3 weeks in school and what did I learn? Economics?? *mummy shakes head*
