More Discoveries

Today I went to return the RM1.00 to the boy and I was surprised this boy was not as bad as the previous one, in fact we had to prompt him in order to say yes that he gave Kieran the RM1.00. I did take notice of the boy who accused Kieran of stealing his money (20sen and I returned RM1.00 to him!), he as usual got excited and kept pointing his finger at Kieran. I really felt bad that this has to happen to my boy, but he has to learn.

After that I sent my car for service and while waiting for the mechanic I saw a friend waiting there too. We started talking about kids and schools and then I related my story to her. Her daughter used to study at the same school as Kieran when she was in Std.1 and she told me her daughter's (X) story was more bizarre! Her daughter's friend (Y) used to offer X food whenever she buys from the canteen. My friend also didn't give money to X. X innocently thinking that the friend indeed was being nice in offering the food/drink, she took it gladly unassumingly.

Then one day when my friend went to the school to collect X's report card, Y came up to her with a book of recordings of the times when she offered X food/drinks.

Y-Aunty, X owes me RM40.00

Xmom-What? How is that possible??

Y-Well I've been buying food and each time I gave X, it's recorded and now she owes me RM40.00!!

Xmom-Ok, I will return the money to you but RM1.00 per day and you are to sign in acknowledgement too.

My friend said she gave a good whacking to her daughter and made her return the RM1.00 each day as a reminder to never ever take any offers from anyone anymore.

Can you believe this actually happened? I was speechless ok! I mean, X & Y were only 7 years old when that happened ok! So later I will warn Kieran not to take anything from anyone, mana tahu (you never know) one kid come up with one buku 555 (tiny notebook) and claim dunno how much from me!

Whao! shocking to hear this. Sometimes I wonder where do kids like Y pick up that kind of stuff. I think parents really have lotsa influence towards it.
