Here is a story about a little English boy who did not want to go back to school after the summer holidays. He wanted some more days at home. So he telephoned to his teacher and tried to speak like his father.
"Smith is ill in bed," he said. "He cannot go to school for three or four days."
"Oh," said the teacher, "I am sorry to hear that. Who is speaking?"
"My father, sir," answered the boy.
