shows what his father means is "when a man who stays mostly quite offers advice, you take it u just do"
He asked his father could he go to work with him.Because he over heard people talking about him. They said he had outgrew the place he usually played basket ball at. An said he should play with the better people at Muni Gym
he went to gym everyday but nobody ever let him play so he just sat in the bleacher. Until one day a man told him to leave because he always just sat there and none of them would give him play time anyways and he said no i want to stay an play. So the man gave him one shot to prove that he could play so if he were to lose he couldn't come back.
With his dad he told him that the same guy that once wanted him to leave the gym and never come back now wanted to buy him food. He turned it down because he had found out a little before summer came the man had lost his job. That kind of made his father upset because he said when a man with nothing offers him something he should take it.
