When your daughter buys the 'private school' refuse bags

There are things that you splurge on and there are things you don't splurge on...

There are parents who will entrust certain 'light-weight' responsibilities on their kids and there are those who micro-manage. 

Depending on which parent you are, it pays to both empower your kids and also to give them some form of responsibility so that they feel in control. 

But when you do pass the baton on, make sure to be very specific about what it is you want them to buy, because they can get it wrong without some guidance and you will have no one else to blame but yourself. 

A father who recently entrusted his daughter to buy refuse bags or garbage bags from the shop got a surprise when he realised where she bought them from. 

Of course, there are those neighbourhoods that are serviced by the municipality. They provide residents with a three-month supply of black refuse bags. 

But, realistically, the amount of waste from each household differs and therefore sometimes that supply is not nearly enough. 

Therefore, we can understand the need, but the problem was that dad entrusted his daughter to get the black refuse bags without advising her on where to get them from. 

And so, this happened. Watch below, courtesy of TikTok

After harping on about it, dad decided that they would be using each bag twice...
