Family members have no business knowing how much cash you handle at work. Even if they are not criminals. They might be overheard talking about it by someone who is a thug. Then you are targeted.

Oh, I think there's plenty of room for the entire human race to be embarrassed. I think it's safe to say that these people were not offerred the option of becoming brain surgeons by their guidance counselors . . . .
