Daddy, may I please borrow $10?
A Good Boy Little Robert asked his mother for two cents. "What did you do with the money I gave you yesterday?" "I gave it to a poor old woman," he answered. "You're a good boy," said the mother proudly. "Here are two cents more. But why are you so interested in the old woman?" "She is the one who sells the candy."
小罗伯特向妈妈要两分钱. "昨天给你的钱干什么了?" "我给了一个可怜的老太婆,"他回答说. "你真是个好孩子,"妈妈骄傲地说. "再给你两分钱.可你为什么对那位老太 太那么感兴趣呢?" " 她是个卖糖果的."
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 an 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 an hour?" pleaded the little boy. "If you must know, I make $20 an 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 hard every day 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 an hour or so, the man had calmed down, and started to think: 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 $10you 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 $20 now. Can I buy an hour of your time? Please come home early tomorrow. I would like to have dinner with you."
一名男子来到下班晚了,累了,恼怒,发现他5 岁的儿子在等着他家门口. "爸爸,我问你一个问题吗?" "是的肯定,那是什么?"回答该名男子. "爸爸,你多少要一个小时?" "这是你的事情.你为什么问这样的事?"那人 愤怒地说. "我只是想知道的.请告诉我,你多少钱一小时 做?"承认的小男孩. "如果你要知道,我要20元,一个小时."
"哦,"小男孩回答他的头,下降.展望时,他说:"爸 爸,请允许我借10元?" 父亲是愤怒,"如果你问的唯一原因是这样你就可以借 钱买一个愚蠢的玩具或其他一些废话,那么你自己直接 游行到您的房间睡觉.想想你为什么如此自私.我努力 工作对这种幼稚的行为每天都在." 小男孩悄悄地来到他的房间,关上了门.该名男子坐了 下来,开始变得甚至对小男孩的问题,愤怒了.他怎么 敢提出这样的问题只得到一些钱呢?在大约一个小时左 右,该男子平静下来,并开始想:也许他有什么真正需 要的,买的十元,他真的不是为钱,往往要求. 该名男子来到小男孩的房间的门,把门打开.
"你睡着了,儿子?"他问. "没有爸爸,我很清醒,"孩子回答说. "我一直在想,也许我对你太硬早些时候,"那人说: "这是一个漫长的一天,我对你拿出我的恶化.下面是$ 10you要求." 小男孩坐在马上站起来,面带微笑. "哦,谢谢你爸 爸!"他喊道.然后,在他的枕头达到他掏出一些皱巴 巴的法律草案.该名男子,看到这名男孩已经有钱,开 始变得愤怒.小男孩慢慢地数出他的钱,然后看着他的 父亲了. "为什么你想要更多的钱,如果你已经有了一些?"父 亲抱怨.
"因为我没有足够的,但我现在看,"小男 孩回答. "爸爸,我有20美元了.我可以 买一小时的时间?请明天一早回家.我想 和你吃饭."
亲情很可贵,因为它是世界上最无私,最 真诚的感情 也是我们灵魂最后的家园 它值得我们去珍惜,去浇灌,去培育.
Thank you!!!
