A man came home from work late, tired and irritated, to find his 5

years old son waiting for him at the door.

Son: – “Daddy, May I ask you a question?”

Daddy: – “Yeah sure, what it is?”

Son: – “Dad, how much do u make an hour?

Daddy: – “That’s none of your business. Why you ask such a thing?”

that man said angrily

Son: -” I just want to know. Please tell me, how much do you make an


Daddy: -” If you must know, I make Rs.500 an hour.” “Oh,” the little

boy replied, with his head down, looking up, he said, “Dad, may I

please borrow Rs 300?

The father was furious,” If the only reason u asked that is so u can

borrow some money to buy a silly toy or other nonsense, then march

yourself to your room and go to bed, Think why u are being so selfish.

I work hard everyday for such this childish behaviour.”

The little boy quietly went to his room and shut the door. The man sat

down and started to get even angrier about the little boy’s questions.

How dare he ask such questions only to get some money?

After about an hour or so, the man had calmed down, and started to

think “May be there was something he really needed to buy with that

Rs. 300 and he really didn’t ask for money very often! ” The man went

to the door of little boy’s room and opened the door.” Are u asleep,

son?” He asked. No daddy, I’m awake,” replied the boy.

I’ve been thinking, may be I was too hard on you earlier,” said the

man, it’s been a long day and I took out my aggravation on you.

Here’s the Rs. 300 you asked for.”

The little boy sat straight up, smiling. “Oh thank you dad!” He yelled.

Then, reaching under his pillow he pulled some crumpled up bills.

The man seeing that the boy already had money, started to get angry


The little boy slowly counted out his money, then looked up at his

father.” Why do you want money if you already have some?” the

father grumbled.” Because I didn’t have enough, but now I do,” the

little boy replied.

“Daddy, I have Rs. 500 now. Can I buy an hour of your time? Please

come home early tomorrow. I would like to have dinner with you”.

THE MORAL OF THIS STORY: – It’s just a short reminder to all of

you working so hard in life. We should not let time slip through

our fingers without having spent some time with those who

really matter to us, those close to our hearts.
