Patrick Wants a Bike

For his birthday little Patrick asked for a bicycle. His father said, “Son, we’d give you one, but the mortgage on this house is $80,000 and your mother just lost her job. There’s no way we can afford it.”
The next day the father saw Patrick heading out the front door with a suitcase. So he asked, “Son, where are you going?”
Patrick told him, “I was walking past your room last night and I heard you tell mom you were pulling out, and she told you to wait because she was coming too. I’ll be damned if I’m sticking around here by myself with an $80,000 mortgage and no bike.”
