My wife Zuzi complains that I’m too generous. Especially here in Slovakia that’s not a good thing, because most Slovak people I meet are rather ungrateful and they are certainly stingy.

Luckily not all of them, but more so than in Belgium for example.

I never knew Belgians were so generous until I moved to a different country.

So whenever I will have my innate urge to give somebody a gift, I will faithfully put the money it would have cost me in this box, and in one year I will be Zuzi the most useful gift I can find for that amount.

Best idea I’ve had all week.


Zuzi says Belgians easily give presents, because they don’t give their presence, they give people gifts to get rid of them. I disagree, but not completely.
