The new family in the neighborhood overslept and their six-year-old daughter missed her school bus.The father, though late for work himself, had to drive her. Since he did not know the way, he said that she would have to direct him to the school.

This went on for 20 minutes – but when they finally reached the school, it proved to be only a short distance from their home.

The child explained, “That’s the way the school bus goes, Daddy. It’s the only way I know.”
