[Roman] | [Chinese] | [English] [A cheaper life]IDX There was a very stingy man, who regarded money as if (his own) life. One day, (he) walked with his son (in travel). When crossing the river, he lost his foot balance and fell into the water. The son got in panic, and cried out aloud: "Come to help us quick. To anyone who can jump into the water, and save my father ashore, with certainty I will give him a big gift in return." The father kicked back and forth in panic in the water. Managing to keep his head above the water, he then called out aloud to his son, saying: "Hey, my son. Don't give him too much money. If it's only three or five silver pennies, then you can send him to save me. If he wants more money, I would rather get drowned in satisfaction. Don't send him to save me."
