A rich man had a son. The son always gave tips lavishly. The rich man in opposite was never wasting money. Once somebody said to the man, “You son gave me $100 as tips yesterday. You could be more generous, because you are a rich man!” The rich man answered, “Ah! Did he? Well, you see, he is a millionaire’s son. But I am an orphan.”
It’s a good story, isn’t it? But every coin has a reverse. It’s not always that poverty teaches be frugal and sufficiency makes careless. Sometimes poor people are thriftless and penny-foolish like if they have no need and rich people sometimes could strangle somebody for a penny like if they are starving to death.
