|Kids of today have briefs|

AN ELEVEN year old boy in central China has taken his mum to court for breaking a promise to buy him a PC if he did well at school.
According to the China Daily, the mother told her son that if he ate all his greens and scored average marks of more than 94 per cent for his school work, she would buy him a computer.
However, when the kid did so well that he managed to get this grade, she told him that she couldn't afford it.
Unfortunately, the boy, from Xingzheng, Henan province, had also been helping his parents run their business and knew a thing or two about hiring briefs when people welch on deals.
So he went to court asking a judge to make his mother honour the verbal agreement.
However, it all had a happy ending apparently the judge reconciled the mother and son, although we don't know if he ever got his computer or not. What a heart warming yarn it all is. If true.
