See-saw

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.
