My mom wants to take seeds of cherry and avocado home. How do I stop her from doing it? Is that even legal? 🤡

Like parents will listen lol




You should definitely research on the legality of it from a proper source instead of a bunch of consultant smart a**es. Would hate to have her be the star of a "locked up abroad" episode.


I don't know why this is bothering me so much...I'm projecting the frustration I have with my own mothers stubbornness. Anyways good luck.

These desi aunty fruit smugglers lmao, gotta make that mango achaar somehow


Why not ?

Where is home? If it’s Singapore or some other country like that, she can get in trouble. If she is taking them to India, she should be OK. Worst case scenario, customs will throw them away.

Good point. My mother in law has taken seeds/produce from us to india and vice versa - no issues!

Hi! My friend works as a recruiter for a recruiting agency, and he told me the company will let recruiters “pay debt”. So each month that you don’t close any deal, you get paid for your base salary, then you are also on debt. Once you close a deal for example 3 months later, then you have to pay your salary back for those 3 months that you did not close any deal. And also the Inmail fee on LinkedIn will be deducted from the commission too. Is this normal in recruiting agencies?
