A friend of mine who works as a Tailor to raised his daughter from birth to adulthood.
His daughter after finishing her Diploma wanted to get a Degree. So my friend took out whatever savings he had to send her to an University in Australia. He worked hard for a few years to take care of her expenses and finally his daughter graduated.
She found a job as an Assistant in a Mutlimedia firm. She was often given a chance to perform and she performs well and her boss likes her. However the girl is not satisfied... she resigned in less than a year claiming that the boss is not good enough to her.
She found a second job shortly.... and same thing happened a few months later.
She found the third job and again she quitted a few months later with the same reason.
Now she is staying at home... "Looking" for a new job.
As for my poor friend... is still a tailor trying to earn a living trying to maintain the family.
Dares not scold his daughter cos his daughter does not have a good temper.
so... does it really pay to have a kid? It depends~
It is just a matter of time the daughter resign from being my Friend's Daughter with claims that he is not able to give her what she wants.
