Short Story - See-saw
Once upon a time, there was a little poor boy called Jacky. He worked at the nearby farm as a farm boy. But Jacky liked playing more than working.
Jacky’s master sold his farm to a friend who would later become Jacky’s new master.
“Where is the farm boy?” asked the new master.
“Hmm, he must have gone to play see-saw with his friend, Margery Daw,” said Jacky’s old master.
“So, how much shall I pay him?” asked the new master again.
“Pay him a penny a day because he can’t work fast,” said the old master.
The new master paid Jacky only low wages which barely met his needs.
Moral of the story : Avoid playing during working or school time.
