In that case I’ll buy a cheaper car
A conversation between our 6-year old (A) and his mom. I was just a fly on the wall.
A: When I grow up I’ll buy a Mercedes.
MOM: Why Mercedes?
A: Because its your favorite car.
MOM: (gives him a sentimental hug and replies practically) Then you have to study VERY hard in school and college, get a REALLY good job, save money for SEVERAL years and then you may be able to afford a Mercedes.
A: Then I’ll buy a cheap car.
MOM: (looked at him disapprovingly for shirking hard work).
A: But I want to buy a car as soon as possible.
MOM: Ok, so when you get a job, buy a nice used car and keep saving until you have enough for a Mercedes.
A: Thank you Mama, I really DO want to buy a Mercedes for you.
