Just To Buy One Hour Of Time

This is a good story I got from my email but in Malay Language, but I translate it into English la, anyway... my English only half bucket of water, if you don't understand just 'hantam' me ok?

*****************************************

A father came back late night after work and looks tired, the son only 7 years old approached to his father and get the briefcase, then the son asked:

Son : Daddy, may I ask you a question?
Father : mmm... What's that?
Son : Daddy... How much you earn per hour for your job?
Father : This is none of your business!

The father looks fierce...

Son : Daddy... Please... I just want to know, please let me know how much you earn per hour?
Father : 20 dollars per hour, why you want to know?
Son : Oh... 20 dollars.

The son looks down...

Son : May I borrow 10 dollars from you daddy?

The father started angry then said...

Father : No wonder you asked me how much I earn per hour, what you want to do with 10 dollar so much?! Must be wanted to buy toys right? Daddy work so hard to earn money for you and you wanted to waste it like that? What time now? Go to bed now!

The son keep quiet and went into his room. The father then sat on a sofa and think why his son need so much of money in fact he never ask so much money before. After 2 hours, the father thinks that maybe his son need to money to buy books for his study. Then the father walked into his son's room, and he found out his son still not sleeping yet.

Father : You really need 10 dollars? Nah! Take it.

The father took out his 10 dollars from his wallet, the son looks so happy and smile.

Son : Thank you daddy.

The son then took off his pillow and the father saw another 10 dollars under the pillow. The father started angry again and said...

Father : You already got money why you asking from me some more?!

The son looks down then took all the money together and explained...

Son : All these money I collected from my school pocket money, it's still not enough so I ask from you another 10 dollars.
Father : Still not enough to buy what?!!!
Son : Daddy... now I got 20 dollars, you take it all now, I just want to buy your ONE hour of time only to have dinner with me tomorrow, I really miss the moment we all having dinner together.

The moral of this story, please spend more time with your kids or your love one. We can see now days kids are losing their parents love. Most parents are busy for earning more income, but they never think of what their kids really need. Youngster now days become so bad because most of them never really have love from parents, they rather mix with outside friends and learn bad things. This also one of the factor to create our social problems.

Please Love Your Family!!!
