Grandpa's Gift

The following is a true story submitted by list member Mary Lou F. from Kincardine, Ontario, Canada.

When our grandson Thomas was 5 years old, his Grandpa thought it would be a good idea to give him a carpenter's set for Christmas.  Grandpa finally found a nice carpenter's set that included a hammer, screwdriver, etc. but there was no handsaw.  Undaunted, Grandpa bought a small hacksaw to include with the gift.

A couple of months after Christmas, Grandpa phoned grandson Thomas.  He said, "Thomas, how are you enjoying your carpenter's set?"  There was a very long pause at the other end of the line.  Then he heard Thomas holler, "Daaaaaaad!  When do I get my saw back?"
