    Our chief has set fund, which we raise by collecting 100 soms per person every month in order to use them for different entertainments. Before going somewhere we should decide the place together. Obviously it was inevitable we started arguing, the more people are there, the more opinions they have. Yet my chief believes that this situation cannot be unruly.

  28. I hate unruly kids!Thanks BBC LE!
