A sixteen-year-old boy came home with a brand new Ford F150 and his parents began to yell and scream, “Where did the truck come from?”
He calmly told them, “I bought it today.”
“With what money? his parents asked. “We know what a new F150 cost.”
“Well,” the boy said, “this one cost me fifteen dollars.”
The parents began to scream even louder. “Who would sell a truck like that for fifteen dollars?” They asked.
“It was the lady up the street,” said the boy.
“I don’t know her name – they just moved in. She saw me ride past on my bike and asked me if I wanted to buy a new F150 for fifteen dollars.”
“My God!” the mother moaned, “Why does she sell a new F150 for fifteen dollars? Who knows what she will do next? John, you go right up there and see what’s going on.”
So the boy’s father walked up the street to the house where the lady lived and found her in the yard, where she was quietly planting flowers.
He introduced himself as the father of the boy she had sold a truck for fifteen dollars and wanted to know why she did it.
“Well,” she said, “I got a call from my husband this morning. I thought he was on a business trip, but I learned from a friend that he has run off to Hawaii with his secretary. Then, apparently, she stole all his money and stranded him there!
Well, he called me without a dollar and asked me to sell his new F150 and send him the money. So, that’s exactly what I did.”
Hope this joke will make you smile! Have a nice day!
