A gentleman decides to go on a cross-country trip. He comes to a small town and realizes that he's getting kind of hungry. He sees a young boy sitting on the front steps to his house and decides to ask him. "Y-Young m-m-man, c-could I t-t-trouble y-you for d- d-directions to a g-good p-p-place t-to eat?" The boy simply stares at him and says nothing. The gentleman again asks: "I s-said, c-could y-y-you p-please t-tell me wh-wh-where I could g-g-get something t-to eat?" The boy still just sits and stares at him. After a few more times of asking and getting no response, the gentleman rolls up his window and drives off. The boy's mother walks out to the steps and says to him, "You've lived in this town all your life...why didn't you tell him where to get something to eat at??" The boy then replied, "Y-you think I w-want t-t-to get s-s-slapped?"
