Kids Have No Inno-Cents

(I am working at the checkout. A mother and her young 1-year-old son comes into my line. The son is nagging his mother to buy something for him.)

Mother: “No, we can’t afford it.”

Son: “Then make more money.”

Mother: “Your dad and I are making as much as we can.”

Son: “Then print more money. That’s what daddy did.”

(I look a bit bewildered.)

Mother: *noticing my expression* “He means Monopoly money! His sister threw half of it into the swimming pool.”
