For his birthday, little Patrick asked for a 10-speed bicycle.
His father said, "Son, we'd give you one, but the mortgage
on this house is $80,000 & your mother just lost her job.
There's no way we can afford it."
The next day the father saw little Patrick heading out the front
door with a suitcase. So he asked, "Son, where are you going?"
Little Patrick told him, "I was walking past your room last night
and heard you telling mom you were pulling out. Then I heard
her tell you to wait because she was coming too. And I'll be
damned if I'm staying here by myself with an $80,000 mortgage and no bike!"
