10 or 1?
One day, a neighbor called Little John and asked:
- John, if I let you choose between two banknotes, 10 and 1 dollar, which one would you prefer?
- I only need 1!
The neighbor was surprised and gave John 1 dollar.
The following month, everyone tried to test John as the neighbor did, and they said to one another:
- That boy is so stupid, I could give him 10 dollar, but he always like only 1 dollar!
The rumor came to John's mother. She cried:
- God, poor me! How could I have such a stupid son? He doesn’t even know the value of money...
John silenced his mother and whispered:
- Quiet, mom. If I took 10 dollar, I only got 10 dollar. But now I have more than 30 dollar!
