Two Beggars

Jose and Carlos are beggars. They beg in different areas of town.

Carlos begs for the same amount of time as Jose,

but collects only eight or nine dollars every day.

Jose brings home a suitcase of ten-dollar bills every day. He drives a Mercedes,
lives in a mortgage-free house, and has a lot of money to spend.

'Hey, amigo,' Carlos says to Jose,

'I work just as long and hard as you do, so how come you bring home a suitcase
full of ten-dollar bills every day?'

Jose says, 'Look at your sign, what does it say'?

Carlos' sign reads: 'I have no work, a wife and 6 kids to support.
'What's wrong with that?' Carlos asks him

Jose says, 'No wonder you only get eight or nine dollars!'

Carlos says, 'All right, so what does your sign say?'

Jose shows Carlos his sign. It reads:

'I only need another ten dollars to move back to Mexico .'
