Frank went to the Godfather one day and asked if job could be found for his nephew who was due to
arrive next week and stay with him until he gets settled.

"No problem," said the Godfather in his deep voice and then continued, "You are a good man to watch
for your relatives. Family is very important"

"Godfather, you should know ahead of time that the boy is deaf and dumb, though. But, he is very
smart," said Frank.

"That's okay," said the Godfather, "We'll give him a job as a bagman and he won't need to talk. You
are a good man Frank."

The boy had been working for about six months picking up numbers game receipts when the Godfather
called Frank into his office. Obviously very angry, he said, "That little scumbag nephew of yours has
been skimming from the collections. I figure he's stolen about $500,000 by now and I want it back,
right now!"

Frank found his nephew downstairs, and in sign language, told the boy, "The Godfather is very upset
with you and wants to see us both right away."

Shrugging his shoulders, the boy followed his uncle to the boss's office. They sat down across the
desk from the boss and Frank signed to the lad, "The Godfather wants to know where the money is that
you stole from him."

The boy shrugged his shoulders as if he knew nothing about it. With that, the Godfather pulled a .357
magnum from the drawer, pointed it at the boy's head, and bellowed, "Tell that little puke he's got
ten seconds to tell you where that money is or I'll blow his head off."

The boy's eyes widened with terror at the sight of the gun and he quickly signed to his uncle, "I
stashed the money under the basement stairs at your house."

"Well?" the Godfather demanded, "What did that little ingrate have to say?"

Frank replied, "He says he doesn't think you have the guts to pull the trigger."
