Eric, I think that once again the apparently slow and stupid country folk are taking advantage of the gullibility of the sophisticated city folk. Follow your line of reasoning and you'll be suggesting training in bucket making and repair - which they can't pay for, so you will.

It won't be long before they've convinced you that it would be a good idea to invest in a bucket factory - on their land, of course. They won't need to repair leaking buckets then - they probably won't need to buy them.

Never trust an apparently poor farmer!
