Good morning guys! What’s up?
Heard a story yesterday of a little boy, maybe seven years old, sittin on the street corner tryin to sell a lawnmower.
A man of about 45 came pedaling up on a bike.
The man stopped, looked down at the mower with the handwritten,“4-sale sign,” hangin off it, and asked, “Is this your mower, does it still run, and why ya sellin it?”
The little boy replied yes to the first two, and then said he was sellin the mower to buy a bike.
“Hmmm…” the man thought. “You know, I don’t ride this bike much, and I do NEED a mower…Tell ya what, I’ll swap ya my bike for your mower, and we’ll both have come out ahead here today.”
The little boy agrees immediately, but asks, “Mister, can I take the bike for a test spin?”
The man said, “Yes, of course ya can, and may I start the mower?”
The little boy replied that this would be just fine, hops on the bike and starts circling around the cul-de-sac, happy as a lark!
Meanwhile the man, his face red as a beet, CONTINUES to tug on that mower rope, but the mower hasn’t even attempted to fire off. It’s been a good five minutes or so, and he’s getting a tad aggravated with the dern thing.
He hollers out at the boy, “YOU SURE IT’LL CRANK?”
