Pickup Backfire

boyWeary of constantly picking clothes up from the floor of her son's room, a mother finally laid down the law: each item of clothing she had to pick up would cost her son 25 cents.

By the end of the week, he owed her $9.50. She received the money promptly, along with a 50 cent tip and a note that read,

"Thanks, Mom; keep up the good work!"
