A farmer was walking down the road when he saw the boy from the farm next door struggling with his overturned his wagon of corn. The boy was red in the face and sweating from the effort.
The farmer said to the boy, "We're about to have supper. Why don't you come over and have some food and drink. Then, I'll come back and help you get this wagon up."
"That's kind of you," the boy answered, "but Pa won't like it."
"Nonsense, boy! We even have some ice cold lemonade. It's hot out here. Take a break," the farmer pressed.
"Well, OK," the boy finally agreed and added, "but Pa won't like it."
After a hearty dinner, they offered him some dessert. The boy said no, but the farmer and his wife insisted. The boy said, "Well, okay, but Pa won't like it."
Eventually the boy washed up, thanked his hosts, and said, "I feel a lot better now, but I know Pa is going to be real upset."
"Don't be foolish!" the neighbor said with a smile. "By the way, where is he?"
"Under the wagon."
