Cierto hombre vino un día a la iglesia con su familia. Cuando iban de regreso a casa comenzó a quejarse de esta manera: "la música estaba demasiado alta, el sermón fue demasiado largo.

Y así siguió hasta que su hijo le dijo: "por favor papá, deja de criticar, por un dólar no puedes pedir mucho."

There wasn't even air conditioning in this heat." And so it continued until his son told him: "Dad please, stop criticizing, for a dollar you can't expect much more."
