一位爸爸下班回到家很晚了,很累並有點煩,發現他五歲的兒子靠在門旁等他.

"爸,我可以問你一個問題嗎?"

"當然可以,什麼問題?" 父親回答

"爸,你一小時可以賺多少錢?"

"這與你無關,你為什麼問這個問題?" 父親生氣的說著

"我只是想要知道, 請告訴我,你一小時賺多少錢?"小孩哀求著

"假如你一定要知道的話, 我一小時賺20塊美金"

"喔" 小孩低著頭這樣回答著. 小孩說

"爹地, 可以借我10塊美金嗎?"父親發怒了.

"如果你問這問題只是要借錢去買毫無意義的玩具或東西的話,給我回到你的房間並上床.好好想想為什麼你會那麼自私.我每天長時間辛苦工作著,沒時間和你玩小孩子的遊戲 ." 小孩安靜地回自己房並關上門. 

 

這位父親坐下來還對小孩的問題生氣 他怎麼敢只為了錢而問這種問題? 約一小時後, 他平靜下來了, 開始想著他可能對孩子太兇了或許他應該用那10塊錢美金買小孩真正想要的, 讓他不用常常要錢

父親走過小孩的房門並打開門

"你睡了嗎孩子?" 他問著
   

"爸,還沒,我還醒著." 小孩回答著


"我想過了,我剛剛可能對你太兇了"父親說著


"我將今天的悶氣都爆發出來了. 這是你要的10塊錢美金"小孩笑著坐直了起來, 

 

"爹地,謝謝你" 小孩叫著.接著小孩從枕頭下拿出一些被弄皺了的鈔票

這父親看到小孩已經有錢了,快要再次發脾氣 這小孩慢慢地算著錢,接著看著他的爸爸


"為什麼你已經有錢了還要要更多?" 父親生氣的說著


"因為我之前不夠,但我現在足夠了"小孩回答


"爸,我現在有20塊錢了. 我可以向你買一個小時的時間嗎?明天請早一點回家, 我想和你一起吃晚餐." 

 

A man came home from work late, tired and irritated, to 

find his 5-year 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 do you make a hour?"

"That's none of your business. Why do you ask such a 

thing?" the man said angrily.


"I just want to know. Please tell me, how much do you 

make a hour?" pleaded the little boy.

"If you must know, I make $20 a hour."    

 

"Oh," the little boy replied, with his head down. Looking 

up, he said, 

 

"Daddy, may I please borrow $10?"  

 

The father was furious, "If the only reason you asked that 

is so you can borrow some money to buy a silly toy or 

some other nonsense, then you march yourself straight to 

your room and go to bed. Think about why you are being 

so selfish. I work long hard hours everyday and don't have time for such childish behavior." 

 

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

 

The man sat down and started to get even angrier about 

the little boy's questions. How dare he ask such questions 

only to get some money? After about a 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 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 out my 

aggravation on you. Here's the $10 you asked for." 

 

The little 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, seeing that the boy already had money, started to 

get angry again. 

 

The little boy slowly counted out his money, 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 $20 now. Can I buy an 

hour of your time? please come home early tomorrow. 

I would like to have dinner with you"
