A Bright Boy

A young boy was playing with a ball in the street. He kicked it too hard and it broke the window of a house and fell inside. A lady came to the window with, the ball and shouted at the young boy, so he ran away but still he wanted his ball back.

A few minutes later he returned and knocked at the door of the house and when the lady answered it, he said, «My father's going to come and fix the window very soon.»

After a few more minutes a man came to the door with tools in his hand, so the lady let the boy take his ball away.

When theman finished fixing the window, he said to the lady, «That will cost you ten dollars.»

«But aren't you the father of that young boy?» the woman asked, looking surprised. «No,» he answered, equally surprised. «Aren't you his mother?»
