> NOW THIS IS A GOOD STORY!
> 
> The man came home from work late again, tired and irritated,
> to find his 5year old son waiting for him at the door.
> 
> "Daddy, may I ask you a question?"
> 
> "Yeah, sure, what is it?" replied the man.
> 
> "Daddy, how much money do you make an hour?"
> 
> "That's none of your business! What makes you ask such a thing?"
> the man said angrily.
> 
> "I just want to know. Please tell me, how much do you make an hour?"
> pleaded the little boy.
> 
> "If you must know, I make $20.00 an hour."
> 
> "Oh," the little boy replied, head bowed. Looking up, he said,
> "Daddy, may I borrow $10.00 please?"
> 
> The father was furious.
> 
> "If the only reason you wanted to know how much money I make
> is just so you can borrow some to buy a silly toy or some nonsense,
> then you march yourself straight to your room and go to bed.Think
> about why you're being so selfish. I work long, hard hours everyday
> and don't have time for such childish games."
> 
> The little boy quietly went to his room and shut the door.
> 
> The man sat down and started to get even madder about the little
> boy's questioning. How dare he ask such questions only to get
> some money.
> 
> After an hour or so, the man had calmed down, and started to think
> he may have been a little hard on his son. Maybe there was something
> he
> really needed to buy with that $10.00, and he really didn't ask for
> money
> very often. The man went to the door of the little boy's room and
> opened the
> door.
> 
> "Are you asleep son?" he asked.
> 
> "No daddy, I'm awake," replied the boy.
> 
> "I've been thinking, maybe I was too hard on you earlier," said the
> man. "It's been a long day and I took my aggravation out on you.
> Here's that
> $10.00 you asked for."
> 
> The little boy sat straight up, beaming.
> 
> "Oh, thank you daddy!" he yelled. Then, reaching under his pillow,
> he pulled out some more crumpled bills.
> 
> The man, since the boy already had money, started to get angry again.
> 
> The little boy slowly counted out his money, then looked up at the
> man.
> 
> "Why did you want more money if you already had some?" the father
> grumbled.
> 
> "Because I didn't have enough, but now I do," the little boy replied.
> 
> "Daddy, I have $20.00 now. Can I buy an hour of your time?"
