Overheard at Table 3: "Pride"

The 18 year old girl asks her parents for money for her school books,
the day she spends $438 for contact lenses,

Her mom asks, "Did you need contacts?"


"Do you need contact lenses?"



The 18 year old girl does not respond.  Then, she offers only,


"Because why?"

"Because I asked dad for the money for them on Christmas and he didn't get me anything for Christmas."

"He paid $500 to fix your car!  That was your Christmas money!"

The 18 year old girl says, "He would have had to do that anyway."
