Black & White


In life, a lesson learned in your past that you will never forget completely.When I was in elementary school, I got into a major argument with a boy in my class. I have forgotten what the argument was about, but I have never forgotten the lesson learned that day.

I was convinced that "I" was right and "he" was wrong - and he was just as convinced that "I" was wrong and "he" was right.

The teacher decided to teach us a very important lesson. She brought us up to the front of the class and placed him on one side of her desk and me on the other. In the middle of her desk was a large, round object. I could clearly see that it was black. She asked the boy what color the object was. "White," he answered.

I couldn't believe he said the object was white, when it was obviously black! Another argument started between my classmate and me, this time about the color of the object.

The teacher told me to go stand where the boy was standing and told him to come stand where I had been. We changed places, and now she asked me what the color of the object was. I had to answer, "White." It was an object with two differently colored sides, and from his viewpoint it was white. Only from my side was it black.

My teacher taught me a very important lesson learned that day: You must stand in the other person's shoes and look at the situation through their eyes in order to truly understand their perspective .

Doggie Do


A sheepherder named Bud was overseeing his herd in a remote   mountainous pasture in Montana when suddenly a brand-new BMW   advanced out of a dust cloud towards him.
  
The driver, a young man in a Brioni suit, Gucci shoes,   RayBan sunglasses and YSL tie, leans out the window and asks   the "cowboy", 'If I tell you exactly how many   cows and calves you have in your herd, Will you give me a   calf?'

  Bud looks at the man, obviously a yuppie, then looks at his   peacefully grazing herd and calmly answers, 'Sure, Why not?'
  
  The yuppie parks his car, whips out his Dell notebook  computer, connects it to his Cingular RAZR V3 cell phone,  and surfs to a NASA page on the Internet, w here he calls up   a GPS satellite to get an exact fix on his location which he  then feeds to another NASA satellite that scans the area in   an ultra-high-resolution photo.
  
  The young man then opens the digital photo in Adobe   Photoshop and exports it to an image processing facility in  Hamburg , Germany
  
  Within seconds, he receives an email on his Palm Pilot that   the image has been processed and the data stored. He then  accesses an MS-SQL database through an ODBC connected Excel
  spreadsheet with email on his Blackberry and, after a few  minutes, receives a response.
  
  Finally, he prints out a full-color, 150-page report on his   hi-tech, miniaturized HP LaserJet printer and finally turns   to the "cowboy" and says, 'You have exactly   1,586 cows and calves.'
  
  'That's right. Well, I guess you can take one of my  calves,' says Bud.
  
  He watches the young man select one of the animals and  looks on amused as the young man stuffs it into the trunk of  his car.
  
  Then the Bud says to the young man, 'Hey, if I can tell  you exactly what your business is, will you give me back my  calf?'
  
  The young man thinks about it for a second and then says,  'Okay, why not?'
  
  'You're a U.S.Congressman from Washington, D.C.,  says Bud.
  
  'Wow! That's correct,' says the yuppie,  'but how did you guess that?'
  
  'No guessing required.' answered the cowboy.  'You showed up here even though nobody called you; you  want to get paid for an answer I already knew, to a question  I never asked. You tried to show me how much smarter than me  you are; and you don't know a thing about cows...this is
  a herd of sheep. .
  
  Now give me back my dog.

Honesty is the best policy....

Jack  decided to go skiing with his buddy, Bob. So they loaded  up Jack's minivan and headed north. After driving for a few hours, they got caught in a terrible blizzard.  So they pulled into a nearby farm and asked the attractive lady who answered the door if they could spend the night.

"I realize it's terrible weather out there and I have this huge house all to myself, but I'm recently widowed," she explained. "I'm afraid the neighbors will talk if I let you stay in my house."

"Don't worry," Jack said. "We'll be happy to sleep in the barn. And if the weather breaks, we'll be gone at first light."

 The lady agreed, and the two men found their way to the barn and settled in for the night. Come morning, the weather had cleared, and they got on their way.

They enjoyed a great weekend of skiing.

But about nine months later, Jack got an unexpected letter from an attorney. It took him a few minutes  to figure it out, but he finally determined that it was from the attorney of that attractive widow he had  met on the ski weekend.

He dropped in on his friend Bob and asked, "Bob, do you remember that good-looking widow from the farm we stayed at on our ski holiday up north ab out 9 months ago ?"

"Yes, I do." said Bob

"Did you, er, happen to get up in the middle of the night, go up to the house and pay her a visit?"

"Well, um, yes!," Bob said, a little embarrassed about being found out, "I have to admit that I did."

"And  did you happen to give her my name instead  of telling her your name?"

Bob's  face turned beet red and he said, "Yeah, look, I'm sorry, buddy. I'm afraid I did. Why do you ask?"

"She just died and left me everything."
