10 Speed Bike

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 and your mother has just lost her part-time 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 mum 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 an $80,000 mortgage and no bike!"
