They beg in different areas of town. Carlos begs for the same amount of time as Jose, but onlycollects about eight or nine dollars a day.

Every day, Jose brings home a suitcase full of ten dollar bills.

He drives a Mercedes, lives in a mortgage-free house, and has lots of cash
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 and I have a wife and six kids to support.

"What's wrong with that?" Carlos asks him.

"No wonder you only get eight or nine dollars a day!"

Carlos says, "Alright, so what does your sign say?"

Jose's sign reads: I only need ten dollars to get back to Mexico
