Ten-year-old child wants a mobile phone. Parent buys a basic, inexpensive model with a pay-as-you-go plan. Child loses phone.
Parent: “You see, I thought that might happen, which is why I got you a cheap phone that’s easily replaceable and not one of those fancy, expensive ones you’re always asking for.”
Child: “But if I had a fancy one, I would have been more careful not to lose it.”
