It turns out that the mother changed her mind about spending the day at the salon. We ended updating her email and Facebook account. Adult learners are definitely more demanding and impatient. Add blood ties to that and it gets more challenging. And so the entire day, we accepted and sent friend requests with the shhhhllloooooww internet connection from the mobile phone plan.
The also about adult learners is that they have greater capacity to pay – in my case, pizza and lasagna. No complaints there. I didn’t even ask for it. I can spend the whole afternoon watching and waiting – with food.
Late in the afternoon, the mother felt like giving advice on life. I’m not sure if she sees it her duty to do so since her daughter turned a year older. Her advice, I never doubted since it’s based from her experience. From facial creams to skin moisturizer to finances and romantic relationships (not applicable to me, I reminded her) and then it was back to finances.
