Wisdom From A Laugh 48

The College Graduate
A young man hired by a supermarket
reported for his first day of work.
The manager greeted him with a
warm handshake and a smile, gave
him a broom, and said, “Your first
job will be to sweep out the store.”
“But I’m a college graduate,” the
young man replied indignantly.
“Oh I’m sorry. I didn’t realize
that,” the manager said. “Here, give
me the broom – I’ll show you how.”
* One should never regard certain menial tasks as ‘lowly’ even if one has high academic qualifications.
* When one's ego grows big, one will face with negative consequences, for example, unemployment, relationship with others and a greater feeling of frustration more and more often.
* One needs to practise simplicity and humility and be willing to do any sort of work as long as the work does not flout moral principles or society's laws.
* We are all interdependent on one another ... each type of worker contributes to society to make our lives nore comfortable and easy.
