Charlie’s Butcher Shop

It had been several years because that humiliating day when a young lady, with a child in her arms, entered Charlies butcher store.
The lady faced him with the news that the infant was his and asked what was he going to do about it?
Lastly, after thinking how he was going to fix this, after all he was a “gladly family man”, he offered to provide her with complimentary meat up until the boy reached 16.
The female agreed.
Charlie had been counting the years off on his calendar. One day, the teen, who had actually been collecting the meat each week, came into his butcher shop and stated, “It will be my 16th birthday tomorrow”.
” I know”, Charlie stated with a smile. “I have been counting too. Tell your mom, when you take this parcel of meat home, that this is the last complimentary meat shell get, then watch the expression on her face”.

When the kid got here home he informed his mom.
The female nodded and stated, “Son, go back to the butcher and inform him I have also had totally free bread, totally free milk, and complimentary groceries for the last 16 years, then watch the expression on his face!”
