LITTLE PATRICK'S BIRTHDAY For his birthday Little Patrick asked for a 10 speed bicycle. His father said, "Son, we'd love to 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 Little Patrick heading out the front door with a suitcase. So he asked, "Son, where are you going?" Little Patrick told him, "I was walking past your room last night and I heard you tell mom you were pulling out. I heard her tell 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 transportation."
