  • with word-for-word English subtitles,

  • and there's usually a complete transcript

  • in the description, just to kinda help you.

  • Again, the video will start in a moment.

  • I'll tell a little story about when I was a kid.

  • Hi, Bob the Canadian here.

  • Welcome to "Wednesdays with Bob" number 17.

  • Remember, even though this isn't an English lesson,

  • there are word-for-word English subtitles

  • and the complete transcript below if you need it.

  • Today I thought I would tell you a little story

  • about something I did when I was a kid.

  • When I was about 10 or 11 years old,

  • I can't remember exactly, a man came to the farm

  • to fix one of the pieces of farm equipment for my dad.

  • And I'm not sure exactly what was broken,

  • but my dad and the man who came to the farm,

  • they worked on this piece of equipment.

  • The man had lots of tools and as he was fixing things,

  • at a certain point, he needed his knife,

  • and out of his pocket, he took a really nice little,

  • what we would call a jackknife.

  • So that's a knife with a blade that opens and closes.

  • And he opened up the jackknife and he did something

  • while he was fixing the piece of farm equipment.

  • And then he closed it and he set it down.

  • And as he continued to work on the farm equipment,

  • he kinda kicked it a few times and it kind of moved away

  • from him to a spot where it was close to me.

  • And I thought it was a really cool knife.

  • I thought it was really neat. I thought it was awesome.

  • And I wanted it.

  • So I kicked it away a little bit.

  • I kicked it away and I covered it up with some hay.

  • There was some hay on the ground

  • and I just kinda stood there

  • and watched while he continued fixing the farm equipment.

  • And he kept talking with my dad

  • and eventually it was fixed,

  • and he cleaned up all his tools, except for the knife.

  • And he put all his tools in his toolbox,

  • and he went back to his truck,

  • and my dad and him were just standing, talking by the truck.

  • By the way, I have never shared this before

  • but one of the reasons I think I am good at YouTube

  • is because I inherited from my dad the ability to talk.

  • My dad was a talker. He really liked talking to people.

  • And I don't know if I've shared this before either,

  • but my dad passed away a long time ago,

  • when I was much younger.

  • I think I was 29 or 30 when my dad passed away.

  • Anyways, let's get back to the story.

  • I felt guilty.

  • I went back and I got the knife from under the hay,

  • and I was gonna keep the knife.

  • And I thought, "This is so cool. I've gotten this knife."

  • And then I felt extremely guilty.

  • And I ran to the man by his truck.

  • He was standing there talking to my dad.

  • I ran over and I said, "You forgot your knife."

  • And then what happened next,

  • I'll remember for a very long time.

  • He thanked me.

  • He was very, very thankful.

  • He just said, "Oh, thank you so much."

  • And he praised me for being such an honest person.

  • And I still feel funny about that because the reality is

  • that initially I wasn't an honest person.

  • Initially, I was going to steal his knife,

  • but I decided not to,

  • and I ran and I gave it back to him.

  • So just a little story about Bob the Canadian

  • from when he was a kid.

  • Hopefully you enjoyed it and I'll see you next Wednesday

  • with another "Wednesdays with Bob" video.

Hi, Bob the Canadian here.
