"Look," he said. "I haven't received my pension cheque yet, so I'm not going to be able to give you in excess of 25 cents. Will that be alright?"


After retiring from a company, the old man bought a home near a junior high school. There, he spent the first few months of his retirement in harmony. 

Then a new school year started. The next afternoon, three young boys came down his street. They beated on each garbage bin they encountered. 

Day after day, the crashing percussion proceeded. Until finally, the old man settled on a choice that the time had come to make some action.

The next afternoon, as the little fellows banged their way down the street,  he walked out to meet them.

"You kids are a lot of fun," he told the children. "I like to see you express your extravagance like that. In fact, I used to do the same thing when I was your age."

"Will you help me out?" he added. "I'll give you each a dollar if you'll vow to come around consistently and do your thing."

Thrilled, the children kept on doing a bang-up job on the trash cans. A few days later, the old man greeted the children again. However, this time, he had a sad smile on his face.

The old man told the boys, "This recession's really putting a big dent in my income. I'll only be able to pay you 50 cents to beat on the cans from now on.

Although the boys were disappointed, they accepted his offer and proceeded with their afternoon frenzy. A few days later, the old gentleman approached them again as they drummed their way down the street.

"Look," he said. "I haven't received my pension cheque yet, so I'm not going to be able to give you in excess of 25 cents. Will that be alright?" 

"A 25 cents?" one of the boys hollered. "If you think we're going to waste our time, beating these cans around for 25 cents, you're crazy! No chance, sir. We quit!" 

And since then, the old man has lived happily and peacefully.
