The Other Side of the Story - Oops! Ups!
Before delivering judgement upon others, we need to make sure we are delivering it to the right address. Otherwise, we might end up saying...
This one was sent to me by my Mom: A business owner decides to take a tour around his business and see how things are going. In one department he is very annoyed to see a young man leaning against the wall, doing nothing.
The owner walks up to the young man and says, "Son, how much do you make a day?"
The guy replies, "$150." The owner pulls out his wallet, gives him $150 and tells him to get out and never come back.
A few minutes later the shipping clerk appears. He looks around and then says to the boss, "Excuse me, did you see a young man waiting here? The UPS delivery man? I left him standing here a few minutes ago..."
