My son arrived home from Dumaguete last night. His plane was due to leave at 4:20 p.m and at 3:00 p.m. sent me a text message that read: " emergency. call." I broke the record in speed dialing.

"What? Why? What?" I said, trying very hard not to scream.

"Mom, can I use the credit card? We have to pay extra for we missed our flight. We were booked for 8:55 a.m, not 4:20 p.m."

"Who the heck made the mistake in your booking?" I fumed. No answer. So I asked how much. My son said 22,500 Php for the six of them. I am not a stingy or bad person but I asked my son, "Why, don't they have parents? I think it's not my responsibility nor my problem to pay for their tickets even on credit."

I told my son to tell his mates to call up their parents and send money through Western Union as money can be remitted in a matter of minutes. Thirty minutes later I checked on my son and asked if his mates have tickets now. He said yes so I asked if the parents sent money.

"No mom. I think they used their ATMs."
