1 Something nice to read. on Tue Jul 21, 2009 12:10 pm

A man came home from work late, tired and irritated, to find his 5-year old son waiting for him at the door.

SON: 'Daddy, may I ask you a question?'

DAD: 'Yeah sure, what it is?' replied the man.

SON: 'Daddy, how much do you make an hour?'

DAD: 'That's none of your business. Why do you ask such a thing?' the man said angrily.

SON: 'I just want to know. Please tell me, how much do you make an hour?'

DAD: 'If you must know, I make $50 an hour.'

SON: 'Oh,' the little boy replied, with his head down.

SON: 'Daddy, may I please borrow $25?'

Thefather was furious, 'If the only reason you asked that is so you canborrow some money to buy a silly toy or some other nonsense, then youmarch yourself straight to your room and go to bed. Think about why youare being so selfish. I don't work hard every day for such childishfrivolities.'

The little boy quietly went to his room and shut the door.

Theman sat down and started to get even angrier about the little boy'squestions. How dare he ask such questions only to get some money?

After about an hour or so, the man had calmed down , and started to think:

Maybethere was something he really needed to buy with that $25.00 and hereally didn't ask for money very often The man went to the door of thelittle boy's room and opened the door.

'Are you asleep, son?' He asked.

'No daddy, I'm awake,' replied the boy.

'I'vebeen thinking, maybe I was too hard on you earlier' said the man. 'It'sbeen a long day and I took out my aggravation on you.

Here's the $25 you asked for.'


Thelittle boy sat straight up, smiling. 'Oh, thank you daddy!' he yelled.Then, reaching under his pillow he pulled out some crumpled up bills.

The man saw that the boy already had money, started to get angry again.

The little boy slowly counted out his money, and then looked up at his father.

'Why do you want more money if you already have some?' the father grumbled.

'Because I didn't have enough, but now I do,' the little boy replied.

'Daddy, I have $50 now. Can I buy an hour of your time? Please come home early tomorrow. I would like to have dinner with you.'

The father was crushed. He put his arms around his little son, and he begged for his forgiveness. <!--IBF.ATTACHMENT_13915149-->

Kongmeng you have an odd tendency to post the most random topics ever found on the internet.
Don't spam, just post meaningful topics, and I won't be forced to keep deleting and locking them.
