So Convincing!!

 My son is taking Business Administration at university(just finished his 3rd year) and he will do well in the world of finance not only due to his high grades and being a member of the Honour Society but also because I am convinced he can talk anyone into anything! Case in point: I told him we pay over 100$ a month for our TV satellite service so he phones(unbeknownst to us) our satellite provider and tells them to the effect of “stop ripping off ‘old’ people!” and  somehow convinced them to take 20$ a month off our bill for the next year, saving us 240$! He said where he lives in the big city he only pays 45$ a month for his HD cable TV service! He will do well in his chosen profession later, being able to talk people into why they need to hire him, or work for his company, or do business with him, etc.

As well, I heard on the radio an ad for someone doing the same business at an event that our family has and I got mad thinking, “You’re cutting into our business!” and as it turned out it was US; we’re booked for it so I was mad at ourselves! The redneck losers next door were also smoking up over the w/e and it reeked so bad we had to even close our windows and the 8 YR old said, “They probably picked it out of their garden!” My mom snickered as well that I’m a “Communist” because I always make the kids share everything and take turns; she doesn’t believe in sharing and is always trying to discourage it and sabotages my teaching the kids; I guess she wants them to end up selfish like her….
