Every parent wants the best for their children. This is why they work hard as much as they can to ensure their kids’ primary needs—to have water and food on the table, to have a comfortable bed to sleep on, and to be able to attend school.
Sadly, parental sacrifices are often overlooked as many children think of these as merely their obligations. What’s even worse are those who ask for a piece of luxury from parents even if it is impossible for them to afford it. But since they want their kids to be happy, they will do anything to get a grasp of it.
In this age of technology, gadgets have become the symbol of status of every owner which is why almost everybody wants to acquire the top-ranking ones. This street vendor from Indonesia, for instance. He became viral on social media after his story circulated on the web. Remarks in regard to this are not all positive, though.
The man spent all of his savings to finally purchase a smartphone for his daughter. According to the reports, he noticed his daughter has been missing her schooling. He then discovered that it was because she is ashamed she doesn’t own a smartphone while everybody else in the school does.
Being a dutiful father as he is, he shelled out all of his money to buy the device that was worth around 6 million Indonesian rupees or $641.14.
This story drew ire from the netizens who were angry about the daughter’s behavior. They also felt sorry for the street vendor for spending that much just to give something his daughter does not really need.
