The airhead tried to sell his old car. He was having a lot of problems selling it, because the car had 250,000 miles on it.
One day he mentioned his problem to a friend he worked with. The friend told him, “There is a way to make your car easier to sell, but it’s not legal.”
“That doesn’t matter,” replied the airhead, “as long as I can sell the car.”
“Okay,” said the friend. “Here’s the address of a friend of mine. He owns a car repair shop. Tell him I sent you and he will turn the odometer in your car back to 50,000 miles. Then it shouldn’t be a problem to sell.” The following weekend, the airhead made the trip to the mechanic.
A month later, the friend asked the airhead, “Did you sell your car?”
“No,” replied the airhead, “why should I? It only has 50,000 miles on it.”
The last person that quit or was fired will be held responsible for everything that goes wrong.
Thought for the day
The Bible says in Proverbs 19:11, “A person’s wisdom yields patience; it is to one’s glory to overlook an offense” (NIV). With wisdom, you don’t get offended. Why? Because wisdom gives you patience. When you understand somebody’s background, you understand the stress that person is under — and it’s easier to show grace. That gives you patience to overlook the offense.
