His birthday was only a few weeks away, so little Johnny asked his father if he could have a mountain bike for a birthday present.
His father said, “Son, Mom and I would buy you a mountain bike, but the mortgage on this house is $350,000 and your mother just lost her job. Sorry, but there is no way we can afford it”.
The next day, the father saw little Johnny walking out of the front door with a suitcase.
He asked him, “Son, where on earth are you going?”
Little Johnny told him, “I was walking past your bedroom last night and heard you telling Mom you were pulling out. Then I heard her tell you to wait because she was coming too. I’ll be damned if I’m staying here by myself with a $350,000 mortgage and no bicycle!”
