My wife and I own several large rice fields in Mindanao. We , of course , pay people to look after the crops. My wife’s younger brother lives with us , as well as others of course. Recently he decided that he was already smart enough so he decided it was time to finish school.
I said to my wife that she can let him know that he can now help with the rice fields and will receive a salary from us. Later that day my wife came to me and said that her brother wants to help but first wants a rest after so many years at school. What he intends to do is to plant a tree by the front door of the house and when the tree reaches the roof top of our two storey house , he will come and work for us.
Well , about a week and a half later , I see my wife in serious discussion with her brother. When she came over I asked her what the discussion was all about. It seems that her brother had no good clothes to go out and enjoy himself in. So he asked his sister if we could buy him some new jeans and top. I said to my wife ,no problems , what I will do is to plant a tree on the other side of the front door and when that reaches the roof top I will buy him the new clothes.
As you can well imagine I am not in the good books , and you know what ……I DO NOT GIVE A FUCK !!!!!Published in
