A Truck For Fifteen Dollars

A sixteen year-old boy came home with a new Chevrolet Avalanche and his parents began to yell and scream,<>


“Where did you get that truck?!” He calmly told them, “I bought it today.”<>


“With what money?” demanded his parents.<>


They knew what a Chevrolet Avalanche cost.<>


“Well,” said the boy, “this one cost me just fifteen dollars.”<>


So the parents began to yell even louder.<>


“Who would sell a truck like that for fifteen dollars?” they said<>


“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 Chevrolet Avalanche for fifteen dollars.”<>


“Oh my Goodness!,” moaned the mother, “she must be a child abuser. 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 out in the yard calmly planting petunias!<>


He introduced himself as the father of the boy to whom she had sold a new Chevrolet Avalanche for fifteen dollars and demanded to know why she did it.<>


“Well,” she said, “this morning I got a phone call from my husband. “I thought he was on a business trip, but learned from a friend he had run off to Hawaii with his mistress and really doesn”t intend to come back.”<>


“He claimed he was stranded and needed cash, and asked me to sell his new Chevrolet Avalanche and send him the money.<>

So I did.”<>
