A farm boy accidentally overturned a wagonload of corn on the road.
A farmer who lived nearby went over to have a look and found the boy trying to right the tipped wagon.
“Hey, Willie,” the farmer said, “forget your troubles for a spell and come have dinner with us. I’ll help you with that wagon after we eat.”
“That’s mighty nice of you, but Pa won’t like that,” Willie replied.
“Aw, come on, son. Take a break,” the farmer insisted.
“Well, O.K.,” the boy finally agreed, “but Pa won’t like it.”
After a hearty meal, Willie thanked the farmer. “I feel a lot better now, but I know that Pa will be upset.”
“Nonsense,” the farmer said. “Where is your pa anyway?”
“Under the wagon.”
