This morning during our family coffee time my Ivy said she is going to visit her gynecologist as she always does on Fridays, just as I did. My Prince, avoiding to interrupt or disturb our further conversation, went to balcony to call Silvano to escort her to the clinic and to be her body guard. He returned very soon and taking his jacket he said he needs to do something urgently and that he'll be back very soon. He returned after some 10 minutes and he carried the box of the cheapest new cell phone (less than 20 Euros value). God damn cheater. His private smart phone got broken; the display died and he needed a new private phone. (Replacing the display on his model of smart phone cost almost the half of the price of the new one and it's not worthy to fix it). He knew we wouldn't approve buying cheap garbage that's why he sneaked out and bought that shit. I boiled within myself. I took few deep breaths so I can press down my anger and I said to him that he should buy quality smart phone for we have money to afford it. Taking out his token from broken smart phone in order to put it in the new cell phone he answered to me without looking at me:
- I don't need expensive smart phone. This one have camera so I can see Mikey and situation at home and it is sufficient for calls and messages.
I was so sad and angry at the same time. I love him with all my soul but sometimes he pisses me off very much: why in the world he always have to buy cheap stuff for himself. I hate his way of thinking. He is too modest when he buys things for himself and too generous when buying things to others. Mom Boss saw my angry and sad face and she acted very smartly and wisely. While my mom tried to calm me saying that he is not to blame because he lived in poverty all his life and he learned to be satisfied with what he has, mom Boss kissed him on the cheek and before he moved his token to the new cell phone she gently said to him:
- Son, would you make your mother happy?
Prince: Of course, mom. What can I do for you?
Mom Boss: Would you write "with love to my mom" on the cell phone box before you open it?
He looked at her very confused. She held him under his arm and said:
- Please, son. Do it for me. Write it on the box.
My Prince took the pen and wrote "With love to my mom" on the box. When he did it, she said:
- Now, give it to me and thank you for a nice gift, son.
In that moment he realized that she tricked him and he protested saying it wasn't nice. Dad Boss sat to his other side and said to him:
- Son, we all understand why are you doing things like this but it doesn't mean you've right. You see, the model you bought has weak antenna which means you often wouldn't have a signal. It also doesn't support Viber. How would you communicate with your sister? I ask you as a father who loves you very much: please, son, stop doing this. We know you aren't materialist, but it doesn't mean you should not have quality stuff. And you make your wives sad and upset when you save the money on yourself .... Now, I'm going to buy a quality smart phone for you and you will take it without protest and complaint. If you don't, you will make us very sad, especially your mom and wives. I'm sure you don't want to do that.
Dad boss kissed him on the cheek and went. My Ivy sat in Prince's lap who was completely disarmed. She firmly hugged him and kissing him loudly, she said:
- Dad Boss is right, honey. You upsetting Princess and me and making us sad when you are cheap on yourself. We would understand and approve your act if we wouldn't have a money, but since we have, you don't have to buy cheap shit. You are not less modest and humble if you buy quality things for yourself. We all know your heart. There is no better man than you, my love. So, when dad Boss bring the new smart phone for you, you will stop doing silly things buying cheap stuff and upsetting Princess and me. OK?
My Prince sighed and he said she is right. When dad Boss returned he brought high quality Samsung smart phone, Galaxy S10+, 6.4". I know this smart phone cost more than 700 Euros, and seeing my Prince deeply sighing as the sign of disapproval pissed me off again, but I controlled myself and sustained from comments and reactions. I realized he just need more times to overcome this problem. Life was hard on him and he can't help it. Dad Boss took a pen and wrote: "with love to our son. Mom and dad" on smart phone box. My Prince hugged them and kiss them both thanking them for wonderful gift. After putting his token into new smart phone I set it up since I'm faster than him in this things. He called Silvano who came to escort Ivy to the gynecologist. I decided to go with her too. Before we split up going after our duties, he hugged mom Boss and said:
- Mom, would you like to cook with me tomorrow? We invite you and all family for the supper.
Mom Boss loves to cook with him. She showered his face with kisses and she said to our dads:
- You two are in charge for groceries. When my son tells me what he has in plan to cook, I will text you the list of the groceries we need.
My dad made us laugh when he saluted her as a soldier saying: Ma'am, yes, ma'am!
