Strict Wife Of The ’70s Manages The Household - Chapter 178
Therefore, the rivalry between Liu Chunfang and the original owner was rather conspicuous.
Lin Lan has the name of a shrew that was capable of protecting herself. She had her reputation tarnished already anyways, so she might as well use it to express whatever she wanted to say. If she was mad, she would say it— never would she choose to burden herself.
“Those who joined the army back then were treated like this. Those who were demobilised had been enjoying these benefits before returning from demobilisation, so those who can persist until now should continue to enjoy them. I’ll say, this aunt, why are you being so bossy and poking around in my business the moment I separate from the family? With how I see it, perhaps you were thinking that you couldn’t incur the wrath of an entire main family so you didn’t. But now that the family is separated, leaving a lone woman like me at home, you decided to boss us around?”
It’s a pity you picked the wrong person; I’m not a soft persimmon!
Yu Wuzi pouted, “But haven’t you taken enough advantage of the system already? We work all day and night but we don’t even have enough rations to go around, so why can you get your share even though your husband isn’t working anymore?”
Lin Lan sneered at this point of hers. One that was jealous of others while facing misfortune themselves couldn’t figure out what it meant to be a soldier and what it meant to risk a danger of losing your life the next second.
All she saw was a few catties of grain.
Looking at Yu Wuzi, the soldiers who sacrificed their lives to protect the peace of the people like her were really wronged. Lin Lan was worried that they were going to be baffled to the point where they might wake up from the dead.
Of course, Lin Lan didn’t try to reason with her since people like these speak with the deliberation to mess around. Wasn’t it merely falling into her trap if one tried to reason with her?
Some people don’t deserve to hear even the slightest wisdom so that they stay dense forever!
Lin Lan put her hands on her hips and scolded directly, “Don’t think that just because I didn’t lecture you with harsh words that you think you can climb over me, alright dear? Your own vision is truly idealistic and outdated, but you don’t want to improve or change that. Besides, I don’t care if you can’t bear to let your son join the military, but you shouldn’t try to drag other families down just because their sons or husbands joined the military! You are a useless excuse of a bourgeois and your selfishness is truly deserving of some good moral education.”
“Y-you’re spouting nonsense!” Yu Wuzi jumped as she didn’t want to wear the label of being uneducated.
You thought you could dance, didn’t you? Do you think I wouldn’t be able to do better?
“I never am one to spout nonsense, but I do expose the malignant tumours and bad elements hidden within the poor and lower-middle peasants of the proletariat!” She pointed at her hand, “I’m talking about you alright, so don’t run away!”
Today, Yu Wuzi had nothing better to do so she tried to bicker with Lin Lan. If Lin Lan didn’t fight back fiercely, she would not stop after that and would keep hovering on the edge of testing the waters.
To avoid trouble, Lin Lan decided to kick her down directly.
Sure enough, seeing that Lin Lan had a way with words, Yu Wuzi muttered and immediately fled.
The village’s tyrant shrew truly couldn’t be messed with.
After weighing the food, Lin Lan happily led the children to transport it to the side for drying, “After drying it for a bit, we can take it home.”
