A farmer had a bumper crop on his potato farm a mile away from home. He told his three sons, “Whoever brings the most potatoes will get $3,000; the second most, $2,000; and the least $1000.” The sons were all excited. Early next morning Son A took a big basket and ran to the field, picked a basketful of potatoes back and forth, back and forth all day. He was tired after 5 trips and gave up. Son B took a wheelbarrow to haul and gave up after 8 trips. Son C watched his brothers sweat, moan and groan. He got some of his savings, went to a U-Haul agency, rented a truck, brought truck loads of potatoes without a sweat, and won $3,000.
