A curious young man was walking down the street when he heard a group of people chanting and wanted to know what the fuss was about.


Old people often have a lot of witty tricks up their sleeves that play with the young generation. One lad fell into the trap of a group of elderly's joke.

A young man was walking down the street when he heard several people unanimously changing: "Thirteen, thirteen thirteen" repeatedly.


Curious at what was happening behind the barrier, he tried to look over the fence, but could not. However, he saw a small hole in the middle of the wood and decided to look.

As he put his eye on the hole, he saw a group of elderly people sitting on chairs and chanting. After this, a finger came out and poked his eye.


As he walked backward one eye closed, the group began chanting: "fourteen, fourteen, fourteen." In the same neighborhood, a retired man who just bought a home near a school was relaxing.

On the first day of the school year, hours passed noon, three young boys went by his street and began beating every bin they passed.


The students were full of spirit as they made sounds day after day, until getting on the old man's nerves. The following afternoon, he walked to greet the boys as they made banging noises. He said:

"You kids are a lot of fun. I used to do the same thing when I was your age. Will you do me a favor? I'll give you each a dollar if you'll promise to come around every day and do your thing."


The boys happily agreed and continued to bang the bins on their way. Later that week, the old man met the boys again with a sad face. "The recession's really putting a big dent in my income," he said.

Although the kids were unimpressed, they accepted what the man had to offer and continued banging their way down.

After a week, the old man approached them again and said: "Look, I haven't received my payment check yet, so I'm not going to be able to give you more than 25 cents, will that be okay?"

One of the boys replied: "That's it? If you think we're going to waste our time, beating these around for 25 cents, you're nuts! No way, mister. We quit!"

The old man then enjoyed peace and quiet in his new home. Did you like this joke? For more laughs, find out what happened between a band director and his drummer.
