The free ride is over...

It was many years ago since the embarrassing day when a young woman, with a baby in her arms, entered his butcher shop and confronted him with the news that the baby was his and asked what was he going to do about it?

Finally, he offered to provide her with free meat until the boy was 16 years old.

She agreed.

The butcher had been counting the years off on his calender, when one day the boy who had been collecting the meat each week, came into the shop and said, "I'll be 16 tomorrow!"

"I know, I know" said the butcher with a smile."I've been counting too!"

"Now tell your mother, when you take this parcel of meat home, that it is the LAST free meat she'll get from me... and watch the expression on her face!"

When the boy arrived home he told his mother what the butcher had said. The woman nodded and said, "Son, go back to the butcher and tell him I've also had free bread, free milk, and free groceries for the last 16 years...and watch the expression on HIS face!"
