A small touching story mainly for professionals

A small touching story mainly for professionals. …

A man came home from work late, tired and irritated, to find his 5-year old son waiting for him at the door.

SON: “Daddy, may I ask you a question?”

DAD: “Yeah sure, what is it?” replied the man.

SON: “Daddy, how much do you make an hour?”

DAD: “That’s none of your business. Why do you ask such a thing?” the man said angrily.

SON: “I just want to know. Please tell me, how much do you make an hour?”

DAD: “If you must know, I make RM.100 an hour.”

SON: “Oh,” the little boy replied, with his head down.

SON: “Daddy, may I please borrow RM.50?”

The father was furious, “If the only reason you asked that is so you can borrow some money to buy a silly toy or some other nonsense, then you march yourself straight to your room and go to bed. Think about why you are being so selfish. I work hard everyday for such this childish behavior.”

The little boy quietly went to his room and shut the door. The man sat down and started to get even angrier about the little boy’s questions. How dare he ask such questions only to get some money?

After about an hour or so, the man had calmed down, and started to think: Maybe there was something he really needed to buy with that RM.50 and he really didn’t ask for money very often. The man went to the door of the little boy’s room and opened the door.

“Are you asleep, son?” He asked. “No daddy, I’m awake,” replied the boy.

“I’ve been thinking, maybe I was too hard on you earlier” said the man.

“It’s been a long day and I took out my aggravation on you… Here’s the RM.50 you asked for.”

The little boy sat straight up, smiling. “Oh, thank you daddy!” He yelled.Then, reaching under his pillow he pulled out some crumpled up bills. The man saw that the boy already had money, started to get angry again. The little boy slowly counted out his money, and then looked up at his father.

“Why do you want more money if you already have some?” the father grumbled.

“Because I didn’t have enough, but now I do,” the little boy replied.

"Daddy, I have Rm.100 now. Can I buy an hour of your time?

Please come home early tomorrow. I would like to have dinner with you."

The father was crushed. He put his arms around his little son, and he begged for his forgiveness.

It’s just a short reminder to all of you working so hard in life. We should not let time slip through our fingers without having spent some time with those who really matter to us, those close to our hearts.

Do remember to share that Rm.100 worth of your time with someone you love.If we die tomorrow, the company that we are working for could easily replace us in a matter of days.But the family & friends we leave behind will feel the loss for the rest of their lives. And come to think of it, we pour ourselves more into work than to our family.

My heart feel so painful reading its… Because I’m still at office, and normally get home very late… and sometime miss out the time with my kids, if my daughter really know how to say this… I think I Cry.

This is a very touching story!

Very good story…

It touches me too! Thank you for sharing, Doris…

wah touched me really really touched me …

Isn’t this adapt from “I’m not stupid” Singapore movie?

no wonder ever heard of it LoL…

money talk la…

ALMOST no such thing like this…

at least its good ending? in real life i see a lot of fathers dont and never even care abt it. one even refuse to admit he’s married and asks his wife & children not to appear together with him in public. while u are touched by this article just remember there are tons & tons of kids who never have the chance to experience the slightest parental love. and people are quick to condemn those who act infilial to their parents.

Very much agreed. Most of the time, when a child gets bad, it’s not by the influence of outside world, but the parents’ love that is not given to the child, which leads the child to do something to get the attention of the parents. In this scenario, money worth nothing, it’s the child’s wish to spend time with the parent, which is priceless.

sometimes, the blame shld go to the company or the boss. some boss only think they got family, and never think thier staffs got families. all bosses can spend time with family but staffs have to over work, sending staffs outstation even is public holiday or send staffs outstation all the time, give staffs bad quote such like “career come 1st”.

altho career come 1st, family is important too. must balance up, but not all company and bosses tolerate enough on these. that is why in malaysia many family breakdown problem. men over work, women oso over work, child dump to parents or maid, and the excuses is earl more for better living, infact is separating the distance in between childrens and parents altho can get better living from the hard earn money. the family relationship not that warm anymore.

nowadays childrens are different than early generation. they need more attention from parents to guide. nowadays children more rebellious, more daring, they need proper guideline from parents to lead thier future.

so all the bosses out there, pls think of FAMILIES that everyone have too.

u told that to a BOSS, boss only say the only thing important to him is HIS FAMILY…so better keep that to ourself - FAMILY really COME FIRST.
