There are real people in the big big trucks

Mr M: I like trucks.

Me: You do?

Mr M: Yeah. When I'm a grown up, I'm going to buy a truck.

Me: You'll need a job so you can afford to buy one.

Mr M: I'm going to save all my money, and I'll probably have to walk up and down the sidewalk to find more money* and save it too.










*At least he has a strategy for when he can't get a job because he won't learn how to read.

My cousin was encouraged to find and save all the silver coinage he could acquire shortly after the USA switched to clad-coinage.

He worked extremely hard and acquired a vast amount of half-dollars, quarters and dimes.

Then he opened a bank savings account thinking the bank would store his horde in a safe place.

When Bunky Hunt manipulated the silver market to record levels, he went to the bank to get all his silver as it was worth about 9x face-value at the time.

Dumb freaking kid!

I'm leaning toward Boxer, here.

I've met quite a many truck drivers that I'm pretty sure COULDN'T read. If only he can get past that intial "save money for truck" problem....

It's all about the supplmental income, and at least he realizes that. Besides, trucks should be really cheap when gas gets really expensive again by the time he's ready to drive.
