Zack was still living at home, so when he arrived later that evening during dinner, he sat down and said, “Guess what? I have some good news and some bad news to share with both of you.”
His parents looked at each other with concerned looks, and his mom said, “OK. What is it?”
“The bad news is that I am moving out into my own apartment as soon as possible.”
“I thought you said you had some bad news, Zack!” his mom replied while giving her husband a knuckle bump.
“Ha-ha. Funny, Mom. Just don’t cry when I leave this time,” Zack said sarcastically.
“The good news is that I am going to be partner and bank president in a little over a year. A bank president can’t be living at home with his parents!”
His mother stood up and hugged Zack. “Honey that is great news. We’re so proud of you.”
Zack looked over to his father, who said, “Zack, I told you that was the right move a few years ago. You have put in the effort, and now you are reaping what you have sown. Great job!”
