How to get your electric appliances to live up to their name

It was a typical day at a local store: customers were out shopping, the sun was shining and there were a few little children in the car.

The owner of the store was the one to start the day with a routine that was designed to get the electricity in the house running.

The owner’s son was out in his garden, with a little boy who had just come home from a game of football.

“I thought to myself, ‘Wow, he looks so energetic,'” the owner recalled.

So the son took his son outside to the park, where the boy started to play.

While the two of them played, the boy said something about being a baller, and the owner’s wife yelled at him to stop.

It was a routine the owner would repeat to his son and wife every day.

A few months ago, the owner decided to change things up.

With the son gone, he took his wife to a nearby shopping mall.

He walked into a hardware store and picked up a new electric appliance that he called the “Electrician’s Assistant.”

“You’ve gotta be a ball, boy,” the owner told his son.

After a quick inspection, the son said it was fine.

And he was off.

When asked how the electric appliances came to be named, the man in the store said he and his wife were both surprised that his son was willing to go to the trouble of inventing a name.

He and his family were thrilled with the name and had it professionally signed by the electric appliance manufacturer.

Then it was time for the son to go home and be the dad again.
