I was too young to know the right way to get him out of that situation. The most important thing was money but we didn't have money. Finally, I decided to steal money from my parents and they found out who criminal was. They asked me why. After listening the answer from me, they watched me and smiled.

Instead of talking aloud and hurting me, they gave me some advices. So far, I have still remembered very clearly those words. The only embrassing event I had is for donkys ago. On a sunny Eastern Monday afternoon I took a casual stroll through the suburb of our town then I met a middle aged lady standing in front of her house.

She replied of course Sir, ladder, a new bulb and a pair of gloves if you want.

A friend of mine who had worked as a journalist in France told me she had to declare her income in Italy too.

So I decided to do her a good turn, out of friendship. I first studied her case thouroughly - that was a complex one - and then I filled out her annual income tax declaration but I didn't take into account of the income tax form preprinted "zeros" and consequently the figures I declared turned to be millions of euros. The following year our local tax agency sent my friend a letter asking her to pay thousands of euro of unpaid tax correspondant to that millionaire income.

Fortunately it didn't turn out all wrong. I had the opportunity to explain my stupid error to the tax agency and everything was settled down. In any case I felt really ashamed but my friend was not angry with me at all, to the contrary she told me she would keep trusting me no matter what.
