SON: "Daddy, may I ask you a question?"

SON: "Daddy, how much do you make an hour?"
DAD: "That's really none of your business. Why do you ask?"
SON: "I just want to know. Please tell me, how much do you make an hour?"
DAD: "If you must know, I make $100 an hour."
SON: "Oh. (With his head down).
SON: "Daddy, can I please borrow $50?"
DAD: "REALLY?! If you're asking to borrow money for some silly toy or game, you can just march yourself straight to your room to think about why you're being so selfish. I work hard everyday to provide for this family, and this is the thanks I get?"

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

The dad sat down and started getting even angrier about his son's questions. "How dare he ask question like that just to get some money?" he stewed.

After an hour, the dad calmed down, and started to think: "Maybe there was something he really needed the $50 for? He doesn't ask for money often..."

So, the dad went to his son's door and opened it.

DAD: "Are you asleep, son?"
SON: "No daddy, I'm awake".
DAD: "I've been thinking, and maybe I was too hard on you earlier. It's been a long day and I took out my aggravation on you. Here's the $50 you asked for."

The little boy sat straight up, smiling.
SON: "Oh, thank you daddy!"

Then, reaching under his pillow, the boy pulled out some crumpled-up dollar bills. When the dad saw the boy already had money, he started getting angry again as the little boy slowly counted out his money and looked up at his father.

DAD: "Why do you want more money if you already have some?"
SON: "Because I didn't have enough, but now I do. Daddy, I have $100 now. Can I buy an hour of your time? Please come home early tomorrow. I would like to have dinner with you."

The father was crushed. He put his arms around his little son, and begged for his forgiveness through a stream of tears.

Just a reminder to all working so hard in life to not let time slip through our fingers without dedicating special time with those who matter most.

If we die tomorrow, the company we may work for could replace us in a matter of days.... but, loved ones we leave behind will feel the loss for the rest of their lives, having only precious memories to hold.

Priorities.

I hope his dad paid income tax on the $100.

Then, reaching under his pillow, the boy pulled out his Beretta 9mm and emptied the clip into his dad, displaying the kind of tight grouping that can only be obtained through intense training.

The following day, his Dad left work earlier without permission. The next day he was fired, leaving the family with no income, so although the boy had his Dad at home with him, they had no food and eventually starved to death.

I don't understand why someone would take the time to type that out and share it. What's the point? Cui bono?

The Momo Challenge is doing my head in. It's an obvious hoax but people know better because their niece saw it.

Aye right, strawberry float off.

Oh, that's what the "Momo Challenge" is.

I thought it was about trying to crack one out whilst only being allowed to look at pictures of Big Mo from EastEnders.

Not sure what that is trying to say. Do they think it's a hoax?

I think Facebook might be polluting my families brain with its bullshit. We had a family gathering last night and it was painful.

Someone had seen a post about refugees being placed in my home village, which has been proven to be completely false, yet various members of my family believe it, even though it is completely false and it makes no strawberry floating sense.

Social media :dread:
