A dad gives his daughter a full size Mercedes, about 6 years old.
She comes home from school the next day complaining that her new gift is too "stodgy", not as cool as the Porche's and BMW's her classmates and friends drive.
Her dad mulls it over and asks her if she too has to ride in a $150,000 dollar vehicle to be cool, and hip.
She immmediately gushes yes, how cool dad is, etc etc. He tells her she'll be riding in one before class the next morning. She goes off incredibly happy.
Dad goes and buys her a bus pass.
Moral of the story? Be careful what you wish for, you just might get it.
