A little boy went to a telephone booth which was at the cash counter of a store and dialled a number. The storeowner observed and listened to the conversation: Boy: “Lady, can you give me the job of cutting your lawn? Woman: (at the other end of the phone line) “I already have someone to cut my lawn.” Boy: “Lady, I will cut your lawn for half the price than the person who cuts your lawn now.” Woman: I’m very satisfied with the person who is presently cutting my lawn. Boy: (with more perseverance) “Lady, I’ll even sweep the floor and the stairs of your house for free. Woman: No, thank you. With a smile on his face, the little boy replaced the receiver. The storeowner, who was listening to all this, walked over to the boy. Store Owner: “Son… I like your attitude; I like that positive spirit and would like to offer you a job.” Boy: “No thanks, Store Owner: But you were really pleading for one. Boy: No Sir, I was just checking my performance at the job I already have. I am the one who is working for that lady I was talking to.
