The Forrestry Commission is basically a car-park operator - ADVENTURES OF A TIGHTWAD DAD

The Forrestry Commission is basically a car-park operator



I was trying to convince my son that you dont have to spend money to have a good time or be happy.

He wanted some glow sticks from the 99p Store, so I tried to remind him about the trip we took last week where we walked up a really steep hill.
ME:
You remember that don’t you? We had a great time - and that was just walking up a hill. We didn’t spend any money there to be happy, did we?

LONG PAUSE.

5 YR OLD SON:
You spent money in the car park. You put money in the machine when you drived us there.



He was right.

Which means I think maybe he is absolutely in the right.
