Little Johnny’s birthday was coming up, so he asked his father if he could buy him a $200 bicycle.
“Johnny, we have an $80,000 mortgage on the house, and you want me to buy you a bicycle?” his father replied. “Wait until Christmas!”
Christmas came, but Johnny didn’t get his bike, so he asked his father again.
“Sorry, son,” his father said, “but the mortgage is still extremely high. Ask me again some other time.”
A couple of days later, Johnny’s father saw him walking out of the house with all of his belongings packed in a suitcase. Not understanding why, his father asked him why he was leaving.
Little Johnny said, “Yesterday, I was walking past your room, and I heard you say that you were pulling out. Then I heard Mommy say that you should wait because she was coming, too… ”
“And I’ll be DAMNED if I’m gonna get stuck with your $80,000 mortgage!”
