Policeman Dad Shares Son’s Heartbreaking Homework that Excludes Him from Family

A lot of workers such as uniformed personnel and those working in medical fields often spend days away from their families because of the nature of their jobs. What’s even sadder is that their children often could not understand that the parents are only doing this for the welfare of their families and to earn money for their children to have a better life.

Recently, a first-grade student from Dawo County in Sichuan Province, southwest China was given a homework in Math but it would soon break his father’s heart.

The question was innocent enough: “How many people are there in your family?

The boy, only identified as surnamed Lou, wrote ‘Three’. That would probably not be a problem until you learn that he comes from a family of four – and he’s not from a broken family.

When his mother saw the answer on his homework, she pointed out that they were a family of four but the boy simply replied that his father is not part of the family because “daddy is never home”.

This upset the boy’s mom; thus, she messaged her husband Luo Jian who actually works as a police officer.

The father was understandably heartbroken over his son’s answer to his homework. But knowing that he’s doing a noble job for the country, all he could do was accept this fact. He posted a photo of the homework on social media, with the caption, “So [his idea of family] doesn’t include me. I’m heartbroken.

It turned out this dad is not just away on regular days but also has to work on weekends and holidays, much like most police officers not just in China but in many parts of the world.

The post went viral, with many people praising this dad and many others who sacrifice their time and lives for their country.

But what does his wife think about him being always away?

Although he can’t give me romance or companionship, I am still very proud of him,” she said.

Radio Presenter Reveals Discovery of Daughter Still Texting Her Late Grandpa

Different people have different ways of coping with death, and many do it by ‘talking’ to their dead loved ones even though they know they would no longer get a response. But any don’t think that children cope in this manner, and some even say that kids aren’t as affected with death as adults.

British radio presenter James O’Brien discovered recently that his daughter has been sending text messages to his late dad who actually died 5 years ago!

According to O’Brien, his daughter was still ‘very young’ when her grandfather died; thus, the radio presenter didn’t think he held a lot of impact on the girl’s life or that his death would greatly affect her.

Sometime after his dad died, O’Brien gave his old phone to his daughter. She used it mostly to just play games as the phone didn’t have a sim card with credits from a telecommunication company.

My youngest has had my old phone for a couple of years. Just for games, which I download for her before disconnecting the internet. Still has my old contacts though [and] it turns out she’s been messaging my dad, who died 5 years ago. I may have something in my eye,” O’Brien wrote, as he shared a photo of the text messages.

The photo went viral, with many people saying they also did something similar when trying to deal with the death of a loved one.

That’s so lovely. About two weeks after my Dad died, my four [year] old picked up our phone and had a hushed pretend conversation, then put the phone down and announced, ‘That was Grandad. He isn’t very happy in heaven and he wants to come back!’” wrote another parent, Rachel McCoubrie (@McCoubrieRachel).

What do you think of this little girl and her text messages to grandpa? Cute, right?

Witty Online Seller Wins People’s Hearts With Her Funny Buyer-Seller Conversations

Published

Putting up an online store can be very scary. What if the people don’t like your products? What if there are no repeat orders? What if you can’t grow your following and a lot more what ifs.

But one thing is certain, if you put up a shop, you have to get customers. The method that you use to entice your customer will determine whether they will be curious enough or sold with what you show them.

One “online shop” in the Philippines became viral and is definitely winning the uniqueness game as buyers and page likers flock her page. As of now the page already has more than 100,000 followers.

All this because of the way the online shop brings a twist to online selling.

Stereotype

Normally, online store sellers try their best to be nice to their buyers even to the point of kneeling and begging just so the seller will buy. But then, what makes them different from other sellers? Nothing, they are just like them.

Anna’s Online Store made sure that she is not like the rest of them. With her witty replies and reactions to her buyers, people quickly grew fond of her.

Sounds rude? No, that’s just the way she handles things. The way she delivers her honesty and frankness to the clients made them love her more.

I mean, come on, who would not be entertained by a buyer who answers like this to buyers?

Take this buyer who suggested items for the seller.

What about a kind of seller that tells you that you can’t order any more from her?

When this buyer saw his conversation with Anna posted on the page, he commented and this is where the seller made it clear that she was serious.

Speaking of the devil, (devil comment, not Anna, peace Anna!)

This is by far my favorite one on the page. When I read this I nearly spat out what I was drinking.

(Thank God I didn’t, RIP to my nose if that happened.)

Imagine being called a devil just because you wanted to order again. LOL Anna, you just made our day.

This just goes to show that Anna is by far the best seller out there. Who wouldn’t want to transact with a dishonest seller, right? At least Anna is honest.

Brutally honest, but still a great seller.

P.S.

Cyst Anna, if ever you read this, we mean you no harm, we were just so entertained by the way you put a twist on online selling. Hat’s off to you and more power to your shop.

Bride Pays Php30k for Designer Gown, Receives Ugly Piece that Nearly Ruins Her Wedding

Published

Her wedding day is one of the most exciting moments of a woman’s life. It is also the day when any woman becomes the star of the show!

It is expected, therefore, that every bride wants to look her best even if that means spending a good amount of money on her wedding gown. Of course, many would argue that the wedding gown is something you use only once; thus, you don’t have to spend a fortune on it but many brides would disagree, saying that the most important day of their lives deserve the most beautiful outfits.

Bride Mhayo B. Arguelles felt the same way. So, for her wedding scheduled last February 14, she made sure to order the gown of her dreams way ahead of date. She met with a gay designer who drew what appears to be a gorgeous gown for her wedding.

It was worth Php30,000 ($575) but that actually sounds like a good deal for that kind of gown. Just looking at this design, anyone would have fallen in love with this piece! But it turned out that the gay designer was much better in drawing than making the actual gown.

The first fitting was in November 2017. While the gown looked too simple compared to the drawing at the time, the bride didn’t think there was anything wrong because she simply thought the gay designer was going to add more to that gown. After all, it was still November, 3 months from the wedding.

Pleased with her gown, she even ordered the groomsmen’s clothes from the same designer; although she changed her mind on letting the designer work on the bridesmaids’ gowns as she wanted him to focus on her wedding dress.

The designer delivered the gown the day before the wedding – and it was so ugly that the bride thought her wedding was going to be ruined. For sure, no one would want to wear that gown!

Thankfully, her maid of honor was able to save the day, finding her a beautiful wedding gown at the last minute.

What’s rather hilarious, though, is that the gay designer has filed a complaint against her at the barangay hall for failure to pay the Php8k ($153) balance on the gown. The nerve!
