    A wise old gentleman retired and purchased a modest home near a
    junior school. He spent the first few weeks of his retirement in
    peace and contentment. Then a new school year began. The very next
    afternoon three young boys, full of youthful, after-school enthusiasm,
    came down his street, beating merrily on every wheelie bin they
    encountered. The crashing percussion continued day after day, until
    finally the wise old man decided it was time to take some action. The
    next afternoon, he walked out to meet the young percussionists as they
    banged their way down the street.

    Stopping them, he said, "You kids are a lot of fun. I like to see you
    express your exuberance like that. In fact, I used to do the same
    thing when I was your age. Will you do me a favour? I'll give you each
    a pound if you'll promise to come around every day and do your thing."

    The kids were elated and continued to do a bang-up job on the
    bins. After a few days, the old-timer greeted the kids again, but
    this time he had a sad smile on his face. "This recession's really
    putting a big dent in my income," he told them. "From now on, I'll
    only be able to pay you 50p to beat on the bins." The noisemakers
    were obviously displeased, but they accepted his offer and continued
    their afternoon ruckus.

    A few days later, the wily retiree approached them again as they
    drummed their way down the street. "Look," he said, "I haven't
    received my old age pension yet, so I'm not going to be able to
    give you more than 25p. Will that be okay?"

    "Only 25p?" the drum leader exclaimed. "If you think we're
    going to waste our time, beating these bins around for a 25p,
    you're nuts!" "No way, dude. We quit!"

    And the old man enjoyed peace and serenity for the rest of his days.
