When Mr. Smith came home from work, little Johnny ran up to him and asked, “Daddy, how much do you make an hour?”

Very tired from a long day, Mr. Smith replied, “Come on, Johnny, I need to just relax for a minute. Ask me later.”

After dinner, Johnny came up to his Dad again, “Daddy, how much do you make an hour?”
“Johnny, it’s not polite to ask people how much they make. But, I make thirty dollars an hour. Why do you want to know?”

“OK, Daddy. Could you loan me 15 dollars?”
“What? You just wanted to know what I made so you could ask for some? Go to your room!”

After a while, and feeling guilty for getting upset, Mr. Smith went to check on his son. He thought, “Maybe I was too harsh. Maybe Johnny wants to buy something.”

Opening Johnny’s door, Mr. Smith said “Johnny, here, I have the 15 dollars you asked for.”

“Really?!? Thanks, Daddy!” Johnny took the money and opened his little savings bank to pull out a small pile of dollar bills and coins.
“Now I have enough. I have $30!”
Holding out the money in his hand, Johnny said, “Daddy, would you sell me an hour of your time so we can play together?”
