A Lady, her son and daughter had completed the shopping and had to return to the spot where their Tourist Coach would pick them up. They had got quite a few things from the supermarket and were using the supermarket's trolley when strolling along the malls. It was almost time to return and they came to a point where they had to get down one floor by using the escalator. Now the problem arose. They couldn't take the trolley on the escalator and if they leave the trolley and just take their goods, they stand to loose the One Dollar that they had to insert to take the trolley. The lady decided to leave the trolley without any hesitation. But the boy was pretty concerned. He didn't want to lose the money and he kept arguing with his mother. Finally these were his words to his mother:
"Mummy do you know the value of money? You are leaving behind ONE DOLLAR (SGD) which is more or less Rs. 25/-. I fully agree with daddy when he says you are a spend thrift!!"
I was amused to hear this, as it came from the mouth a kid not more than 10 years old!!!
