Stolen valour

By Anonymous - 25/11/2022 02:00

Today, after my husband refused to donate to Children in Need because it’s a "waste of money", he came home with swords and shields so he and our son could "wage war in the garden like knights". I wanted to donate £20, the swords and shields cost £500 at least, but I’m the one wasting money. FML

Tbf, once the CEOs, board of directors, managers, take money for wages, very very little actually goes to the cause. Then it goes to national and local governments to distribute the money to the kids that need it, but that needs advertising, so even less. Sounds like your husband and son had a good bonding moment and made some happy memories though

He didn't waste money. He invested it! With the sword and shield, your kid can plunder villages and pillage them. The booty will more than pay itself back in multiples!

Typical lefty nonsense. Don't you know that the only thing that stops a bad guy with a sword and shield is a stingy manchild with a sword and shield?

Exactly. And he spend some valuable time with yours and his kid. Those memories are priceless. Not to mention this is more than what most fathers would do. You son is a lucky kid.

Not all ngo are like that. And you don’t need £500 toys to bond with your child. I would even go further by saying you’re setting a bad example.

Not sure it is that lucky. It’s sad to be taught that you need to spend lots of money to have a good time.
