(audience cheering) Welcome back. It’s time for Ask Wendy, everybody have a seat except for you, come on over. Hi Wendy, my name is Cecily, how you doing? How you doin’? Where you from? I’m from Baltimore, go Ravens. What do you do? I’m a nurse. Okay, how can I help? Okay, so my mom has been selling, well she doesn’t sell, she makes these sugar cookies that’s she’s been making since before I was born. Okay?
Okay. And her friend text her and asked her for the recipe and she texted her the recipe and then the next day her friend is opening this business on Facebook and she’s selling them. Oh well.
With her recipe. Oh well.
Yeah. And my mom won’t say anything, she’s too shy to say anything, so. Is your mom still friends with this woman? Yes, yeah. All right, so– So, I mean, should I say?
With all due respect, your mom’s a sucker. You gotta talk to your mother, your mother is supposed to, first of all, there’s no lawsuit that can happen, you know what I’m saying? It’s like a little small business. I, doesn’t matter. The point is is she’s making money off a recipe that your mother’s been making since before you were born. Yeah, she needs a cut or something. She doesn’t want a cut. Yeah. She doesn’t wanna go into business with this woman. What she wants to do is call her up and give her a good, hard read, not you, her. And you script it out for your mother, okay? You tell your mother to get a backbone this one time and then block her number, never talk to her again, okay? All right, good. (audience applauding) Wow, it’s a lot of nerve. Come on over, how you doin’? How you doin’, Wendy? You havin’ a good time? I am having an amazing time. Thank you, how can I help you? Hi Wendy, my name is Sherry and my son is in college, he came home on New Years Day– Here we go.
And, yeah. (laughing) I was really happy to see him, he wants to be a dentist, he’s a biology major and he said I don’t wanna be a biology major. He’s dropping his major, he wants to be a computer science major. Okay.
I’m devastated. Why? I want him to have a lucrative career, I want him to be successful. And he can’t do that with computer science? He can, he can, but the idea of being a dentist just– You want a doctor in the family. He’s wore on my heart. I know, I get it. Well he can get his Ph.D. in computers and then he’ll be a doctor. You know what I mean? (audience applauding) Be happy that he still enjoys school, that he’s not dropping out and that he didn’t major in something else, like maybe art. You know what I’m saying? There’s nothing wrong with majoring in art, I’m just saying you don’t need to go to a four-year education to– That’s it. Yeah, to discover art. Good for you, Mom, stop complaining. Thank you, okay. All right. (upbeat music)
