With a smile on his face, the little boy replaced the receiver.
The store-owner, who was listening to all this, walked over to the
boy and said,
"Son... I like your attitude; I like that positive spirit and would like
to offer you a job."
The little boy replied, "No thanks, I was just checking my
performance with the job I already have. I am the one who is
