So today something (hilarous) happened, and I don’t think I’d ever forget this
This morning we went to buy 2 loaves of bread, my sister and I. She’s seven years old this year, and is a pretty smart kid. She had a dollar, her own, which she wanted to use to buy a loaf.
When we got to the tuck shop, I told her to give me the dollar and I handed her a five so she’d have the joy of transacting. This is where things got fun. We got the loaves and change $3 which I naturally proceeded to put in my pocket.
Ndazongoona munhu amira pamberi pangu her hand outstretched at me. “Ko chii?”
She wanted her change 😂😂😂
For some reason, she thinks the three dollar change is hers 🙌
So I tried to talk her through the process and prove that the money was mine, and she threw a fit of rage 😂😂. I explained everything, and asked her how the change would be hers.
Her reply was, “Kwazvo ka! Ndipe $3 yangu”
I told her ndozomupa but she was having none of that. I even promised her but nothing.
She wouldn’t talk to me, and walked fast, away from me. The moment we got home, she pulled the emotion card and started crying.
And you know you can never say no when they give you that emotional, teary-eyed look. I had to give it up.
So today, ndavharwa three dollars by my own sister.
