Mommy, Pay.. Pay.. Pay!!

My boy came back from school last evening and pestered me to write a cheque to be given to the canteen operator. I remember giving him cash to pay last month end for this month's fee. He comes back with a brown envelope every month end and I will either give him cash or write a cheque for him. Although he still remembers handing the brown envelope with RM40 cash to the aunty at the canteen, he insists that I must pay "again" for fear of losing his reserved seat more than not getting his catered food. The aunty has told him that he must pay by tomorrow (today). O.0.

I tell him I can always pack him lunch box which is much healthier but he still insists to have his catered food so that he can have his reserved seat and he gets to hang around with his bunch of friends during recess time at the canteen. *slap head* He does not really enjoy the food there as he says they are always the same with new items added once in a bluemoon. 

He is still not convinced when I promise to talk to the aunty this Saturday as he is scared of being "punished" for not "paying up" by today.

Ian: Mommiy, what if aunty punished me for not paying her?
Mommy: How is aunty going to punish you? Ear-squats? (teasing him)
Ian: By not giving me food la.. *sounds worried*
Mommy: How could she?  I have already paid her plus another month of deposit.
Ian: But she checked her book and no "tick" there (tick means paid) wo.
Mommy: Aunty may have messed up.. Let mommy talk to her this Saturday.
Ian: Make sure you bring the cheque, ok? But no food for me today, how?
Mommy: You have RM2 pocket money right, you can buy yourself some food with the money or you want a lunch box or not?
Ian: *Seems convinced but suddenly blurts out*  Just write a cheque and give aunty today cannot meh?
Mommy: *fainted* 

This boy of mine, to avoid trouble, he is more than willing to pay others (at his parents' expense of course) even if it means paying double.. But to mommy, a lesson learnt.. To always write a cheque for this kind of payment and not paying by cash out of convenience. The end.

Kids probably doesn't feel the pinch the way adults do when we end up having to pay double. They think money is easy to get, I guess...

He is so persistent. In fact, I can see that he is very discipline.
