One evening, Tom and his best friend Timmy, were playing football in his front yard. They were having a smashing game when Tom kicked the ball so hard that it smashed the windscreen of a passing car.
The driver stopped his car and got out of the vehicle. He was fuming mad and he gave the boys a good scolding. Tom quickly apologised to the furious man.
When his parents knew of the incident, they gave him a harsh lecture. They had reminded him repeatedly not to play football in the small front yard. Tom was very sorry to have disobeyed his parents for he had to use all his savings to pay for a new windscreen to replace the broken one. It was an expensive lesson for Tom.
