What is it with people who ask for advice or your opinion when they want to hear THEMSELVES and not what you have to say?
I get it so often in my office. “Do you think I’ll be able to claim this as a business expense?” “No. It’s private and SARS will see it as that as well. I wouldn’t take the chance to claim it” “But….” URGH
What frustrated me about this today is when my MIL phoned and asked what size clothing Jason wears. My kids are average sized. Have always been. He turns 6 on the 31st. So if you want to buy him something, buy 6 – 7 year old. Easy right? NNNnnnnoooooooo She wants to buy him 7 – 8. Why? He still fits into most of his 5 year old clothes. Why buy something way bigger, that he won’t be able to wear. I tried to very sweetly explain that but she wanted none of it. I’m sure he’ll get 7 – 8 year old clothing for his birthday. That he can’t wear. That I’ll have to pack away till next year, when he gets something too big to wear again but then at least he will have this.
On the up side – They do buy a gift.
