An eight year old boy is walking down the road one day when a car pulls over next to him.
“If you get in the car,” the driver says, “I’ll give you $10 and a piece of candy.”
The boy refuses and keeps on walking.
A few moments later, not to take no for an answer, the man driving the car pulls over again. “How about $20 and two pieces of candy?”
The boy tells the man to leave him alone and keeps on walking.
Still further down the road the man pulls over to the side of the road.
“OK,” he says, “this is my final offer. I’ll give you $50 and all the candy you can eat.”
The little boy stops, goes to the car and leans in. “Look,” he says to the driver. “You bought this ugly station wagon when everyone else got cool SUVs, Dad, but that doesn’t mean I have to be seen riding in it!”.
