The Cat In The Bag - 11
Günther was so scared of Jacques, that whenever there was conflict, he would hide in bed.
I had the advantage that Jacques was soft with women. So I could put him in his place and make new arrangements.
But the rest would not talk about money, which had the disastrous consequence that the first time Günther went to order bricks, they all came with their bullock carts to demand their share of our bricks.
With the result of Günther having to start over again.
It really got on my nerves, and got angry with Mother. I told her: “Sooner or later you're going to have to explain me your “No money” thingy!” It makes people totally twisted in their minds. They kept saying “Mother has said this” and “Mother has said that” and then I asked “And what do YOU say?” And then they shut up.
