A little boy, who wanted $100 very badly, prayed for two weeks but nothing happened. Then he decided to write G-d a letter requesting $100.
When the postal authorities received the letter to G-d, U.S.A., they decided to send it to the President. The President was so impressed, touched, and amused that he instructed his secretary to send the boy $5. Mr. President thought that this would appear to be a lot of money to the little boy. The little boy was delighted with the $5 and immediately sat down to write a thank you note to G-d that read: "Dear G-d, Thank you very much for sending me the money. However, I noticed that for some reason you had to send it through Washington, D.C., and, as usual, they deducted $95 for taxes!
