A Little Boy

A little boy went into a drug store, reached for a soda carton and pulled it over to the telephone. He climbed onto the carton so that he could reach the buttons on the phone and proceeded to punch in seven digits.

The store owner listened to the following conversation.

The boy said, "Lady, I want to cut your lawn".

The woman replied, "I already have someone to cut my lawn".

"Lady I will cut your lawn for half the price of the person who cuts your lawn now."

The woman responded that she was very satisfied with the person who was presently cutting her lawn.

The little boy found more perseverance and offered, "Lady, I'll even sweep your curb and your sidewalk, so on Sunday you will have the prettiest lawn in all of North Palm Beach, Florida."

Again the woman answered in the negative.

With a smile on his face, the little boy replaced the receiver.

The druggist walked over to the boy and said, "Son I like your attitude, I like that positive spirit. Son, I would like to offer you a job."

The little boy replied, "No thanks, I was just checking on the job I already have."

  1. I like that little red mower in the photo. The big back wheels & small front wheels make it look really hot
