One for the road

A father and his son were walking down the street in their shtetl . Father tells his son : when you start cheder, you will need to apply yourself for otherwise what’s going to become of you? You will end up like a gentile, ignorant and uncouth.!The father started to glance around to find an appropriate example when a carriage pulled by six horses was traveling nearby. In the carriage was an important army general.Seeing that, the father turned to his son and declared – see! You’re gonna end up just like him!
