Young Man Negotiates a Tough Deal with a Man in a Challenging Position

Children’s astuteness is frequently underestimated. Unlike adults, kids can often recognize when they hold the advantage in a situation and are unafraid to capitalize on it!

Their ability to quickly assess a situation and make snap decisions is something that many adults, even those in business school, spend years trying to cultivate.

Children may be innocent, but they can also exhibit a certain ruthlessness.

For instance, consider the young boy in this anecdote who stumbled upon a man in a very “compromising” situation and decided it was an opportune moment to negotiate payment!

A housewife takes a lover during the day, while her husband is at work. not aware that her 9-year-old son was hiding in the closet. Her husband came home unexpectedly, so she hid her lover in the closet.

The boy now has company.

Boy: “Dark in here.”

Man: “Yes it is.”

Boy: “I have a baseball.”

Man: “That’s nice.”

Boy: “Want to buy it?”

Man: “no, thanks.”

Boy: “My dad’s outside.”

Man: “oK, how much?”

Boy: “£250.”

In the next few weeks, it happens again that the boy and the mom’s lover are in the closet together.

Boy: “Dark in here.”

Man: “Yes, it is.”

Boy: “I have a baseball glove.”

Man: “That’s nice.”

Boy: “Want to buy it?”

Man: “no, thanks.”

Boy: “I’ll tell.”

Man: “How much?”

Boy: “£750.”

Man: “Fine.”

A few days later, the father says to the boy,

“Grab your glove. Let’s go outside and toss the baseball!”

The boy says, “I can’t. I sold them.”

The father asks, “How much did you sell them for?”

The son says, “£1,000.”

The father says, “That’s terrible to over-charge your friends like that. That is way more than those two things cost. I’m going to take you to church and make you confess.”

They go to church and the father alerts the priest and makes the little boy sit in the confession booth and closes the door.

The boy says, “Dark in here.”

The priest says:

“Don’t start that sh*t again!!”
