Guido went to the Godfather one day and asked if job could be found for his nephew who was due to arrive from Sicily. "No problem," said the boss. "You should know ahead of time that the boy is deaf and dumb, though," said Guido. "That's okay," said the Capo, "We'll give him a job as a bagman and he won't need to talk." The boy had been working for about six months picking up numbers game receipts when the don called Guido into his office. Obviously very angry, he said, "That little scumbag nephew of yours has been skimming from the collections. I figure he's stolen about $500,000 by now and I want it back, right now!" Guido found his nephew downstairs, and in sign language, told the boy, "The Godfather is very upset with you and wants to see us both right away." Shrugging his shoulders, the boy followed his uncle to the boss's office. They sat down across the desk from the boss and Guido signed to the lad, "The Godfather wants to know where the money is that you stole from him." The boy shrugged his shoulders as if he knew nothing about it. With that, the don pulled a .357 magnum from the drawer, pointed it at the boy's head, and bellowed, "Tell that little puke he's got ten seconds to tell you where that money is or I'll blow his head off." The boy's eyes widened with terror at the sight of the gun and he quickly signed to his uncle, "I stashed the money under the basement stairs at your house." "Well?" the boss demanded, "What did that little ingrate have to say?" Guido replied, "He says he doesn't think you have the guts to pull the trigger."
