Children should be seen and not hurt (4)

Here’s a story about a man fascinated by a toy train set displayed in a shop window. Noticing his interest, the salesman came out to talk to him (hoping to make a sale, of course).

Salesman: Sir, that is our latest battery-operated train.

Man: Yes, it looks very impressive.

Salesman: Yes, sir. A toy train is a good way to interest a child.

How old is your child, sir?

Man: Oh, my son is 11 years old.

Salesman: Eleven years old! This train set will fascinate him. It is a very educational toy. He will play with it for hours, I guarantee you. You should buy a set for him.

Man: Really? In that case, I had better buy two sets.

Why 2 sets? Ah, a man is just an overgrown boy, isn’t it? You know that old saying, “The difference between men and boysis the price of their cars”.
