This is a question Sporting Woe

In which we ask a bunch of pasty-faced shut-ins about their exploits on the sports field. How bad was it for you?

Thanks to scarpe for the suggestion.

Here, have a repost.
Ron is tall, lanky, athletic. He grew up in a small town in Australia and his uncle had a dairy farm not too far away. When he was about ten the uncle started telling him that when he got a bit older he'd be grown up enough to help with the milking. Ron thought that would be fun.

So a year later Ron was getting up at stupid o'clock, riding his bike for 15 minutes to his uncle's farm and encouraging cows to do what they do best. Then it was back on the bike and home for a shower, breakfast, then go to school. After school, back on the bike and out to the farm for the rest of the daylight. Sometimes he got to babysit the uncle's two little kids while the uncle and aunt went to the pictures or the pub. After the police chipped him for riding home in the dark, the uncle sprang for a bike light.

When he hit high school he was a head taller than the other boys. One of the teachers asked if he'd like to try out for the basketball team after school.

"I can't, I have to help with the milking at Uncle Frank's farm."

A year passed. then same teacher, same suggestion, same answer.

"How much is your uncle paying you?"

He said "The scales fell from my eyes."

Four years of milking, washing out dairies and babysitting kids and his entire payment had been a bike lighting set and a few meals.

He spent the rest of his afternoons playing basketball.

I was kinda expecting
a sort of 'Luke Skywalker' story there.

So what happened? Was he any good? Did he make the 'big leagues' etc?

So his uncle chnged his will.
Rather than inheriting his uncle's farm, when his uncle tragically died young, he ended up working all his life after high school working as a jizz mopper in a nudey booth.

The rest of the story includes the facts
that Ron became an accountant and was executor on his father's will, by which he learned that good old Uncle Frank, who indeed died "young" had owed his father $45,000 and never repaid anything.
