Bribery does work
Amazing what an offer of $2 to find a pair of missing football shorts will do. All day we have spent looking in every cupboard, going through every single item of clothing piece by piece, searching all school bags even the freezer for these shorts. They form part of one son's uniform when he plays in the junior rugby league competition and at a cost of $30 each, I was determined that they had to be somewhere right in front of us. Much yelling, frustration and cursing and still no shorts. This afternoon I offered up a monetary reward for the first person to find these shorts and within 5 minutes, they was discovered. In the laundry which had been pulled apart, hiding under a wet towel, there they lay. Now, I might offer same reward to find my sanity , having lost it over a flimsy piece of material.
