Watch The Expression

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 turned 16 years of age. She agreed.

He had been counting the years off on his calendar, and one day the teenager, who had been collecting the meat each week, came into the shop and said, "I'll be 16 tomorrow."

"I know," said the butcher with a smile, "I've been counting too. Tell your mother, when you take this parcel of meat home, that is the last free meat she'll get and watch the expression on her face."

When the boy arrived home and told his mother, the woman nodded and said, "Son, go back to the butcher and tell him I have also had free groceries, cars, rent, furniture and clothes for the last 16 years and watch the expression on his face!"
