ARTI: Good morning dad!
DAD: Good morning my daughter!
ARTI: Dad, I have to talk to you.
DAD: Sit down Arti. You look serious. What’s your problem?
ARTI: Dad, would you please increase my pocket money?
DAD: You are already getting enough pocket money.
ARTI: Dad, I have been getting the same amount for last two years.
DAD: You should l manage with the amount you are getting. I can’t give you more.
ARTI: I am finding it difficult. Things are so costly. Most of my friends get more than double the amount what I get.
DAD: You can control your personal expenses. Moreover, there is no need to go out with your friends.
ARTI: But life will be so boring without some entertainment with friends. Please dad, understand my problem.
DAD: You know my income is limited. I also find it difficult to make both ends meet. It may not be possible for me to increase your pocket money.
ARTI: Then it’s ok. I shall try to manage.
DAD: Why dont you do one thing?
DAD: Start taking tuitions in the evening. If children earn their own pocket money it will reduce burden on parents.
ARTI: Yes, father. It would be better. By this way I can also share your responsibility.
DAD: May God bless you my child!
