While his wife knows about this, they mutually keep it a secret from their son Charlie and their own parents -- he leaves and returns to the shack at the same times he always did, but is ''looking'' for work in the interim. They are finally forced to reveal the truth when the Golden Ticket contest is announced and must break the news to Charlie that they won't be able to afford his usual birthday bar of chocolate this year (whereupon Grandpa Joe decides to give up what little change he's saved to make sure he gets it).
