What is a mother worth?
That’s a question we’ve been asking ourselves a lot recently; in fact, it actually caused a bit of an argument here in the office – it got pretty nasty, in honesty.
We decided that before we came to blows, there was only one thing to do: ask our life cover team to see if they could settle the argument (and decide whether John from accounts should feel guilty or not for just buying his mom a potted plant for her Birthday).
We were amazed by the figures: £30,000 is equal to $47,637 – and that’s an awful lot of money in anyone’s language. Even working mothers do a whole heap of work at home that’s worth more than $30,000 when you tot it up in babysitting, gardening and cleaning fees.
The long and the short of it? John in accounts, you should feel very ashamed indeed.
