I went home last weekend with $19 left in my bank account.
When my grandmother tried to offer my some cash as an early christmas present, I tried the usual tactics:
"No thanks, I have plenty of money already."
"It's ok, you don't have to give me a christmas present this year."
"I already bought myself something earlier this month."
"Why don't you give this to me on actual christmas day?"
"Let's make a compromise, I'll take half now, and half on christmas day."
I didn't try hard enough. I failed. My brother made fun of me. But my bank account has more than $19 now!
