Money matters

I'm broke. I'm kinda ashamed to admit it, but i still survive on the pocket money...that my dad supplies me with at the beginning of every month. The first 15 days are blissful...loads of shopping, partying, movies and freaking out! I'm a spendthrift, to the core. But only for the 1st 15 days of the month. Its towards the end of the 'honeymoon stage' that i realise i have slightly more than 135 bucks left to last me for the rest of the month. That's when i undergo a personality change. From being a bindaas shop-a-holic to being a 'kanjoos kadki'! I try and save up as much as possible...try and use the bus to get to and back from college (the 5 rupee coins for the bus fare i 'borrow' from dad's change-box!), not splurging on the canteen food, absolutely no shopping, being home on time. My folks are the happiest then...ironically me being just the opposite. Everytime i promise myself..."nah next month se i'll save" but cant deny myself the temptation of encashing my desires! Sigh! I wonder if i'll have any savings in future...money matters are beyond me! :[

Maybe you could ask for a raise. "Mehengai ka zamana" is a good starting point for your case. Im sure dad will see your point if you mention how your other friends' BFs help them out in time of need. A BF in need is a BF indeed :D. Luck to you.

@soxy: If I tell him "mehengai ka zamana hai" he'll tell me to spend less and stay home!
besides i think it would be easier and better to get a BF instead! ;)
