Does your family oversea's think you have lots of money because you live in UK??
As I've lived in UK most of my life, my family think I have LOTS of money.
They seem to think as soon as you step in the UK your rich!
I know life is easier in the UK, rather then Africa, or China but it doesn't make you have LOTS & LOTS of money in your bank account living in UK.
They always expect me to send them things, & when I VISIT, they expect I've got them lots of big stuff...
Sorry but when I have I don't mind giving or helping but when I go back home, the ticket is ALWAY so expensive that there is only alittle money for me to spend & I obviously stay with family not in a hotel.
Otherwise it would be alot harder for me to visit them.... So if I give I usually it's sometime small, I don't have a big income.
They seem to forget I have bills to pay,
they forget if there is something to fix in your house you may need to buy certain things.
They forget am in a colder county so there is a thing called heating.
Cleaning spray, air refreshener, washing up liquid & so on.
All cost me money, if I need a new hoover, clothes, handbag, fridge, kettle, rice cooker all this is not free.
I don't buy expensive stuff, so that helps but I am not rich but I am to them.
This gets on my nerves sometimes! & I want to say something but don't because they will never understand.
