Wise Old Man

A retired man moves near a junior high school. He spends the first few weeks of retirement in peace and quiet. However, when a new school year begins, three young boys beat on every trash can they encounter every day on their way home from school.
Finally, the man decides to take action and walks out to meet the boys. He says, You kids are a lot of fun. Ill give you each a dollar if youll promise to come around every day and do your thing. The kids continue to do a bang-up job on the trashcans.
After a few days, the man tells the kids, This recessions really putting a big dent in my income. From now on, Ill only be able to pay you 50 cents to beat on the cans. The noisemakers are displeased, but they accept his offer.
A few days later, the retiree approaches them again. Look, he says, I havent received my Social Security check yet, so Im not going to be able to pay more than 25 cents. Will that be OK?
A freakin quarter? the drum leader exclaims. If you think were going to waste our time beating these cans around for a quarter, youre nuts. We quit.
