Food for Thought

Not quite a funny but something to think about since in this game we all rely on text to communicate.


There once was a little boy who had a bad temper. His Father gave him a
bag of nails and told him that every time he lost his temper, he must
hammer a nail into the back of the fence.

The first day the boy had driven 37 nails into the fence. Over the next
few weeks, as he learned to control his anger, the number of nails
hammered daily gradually dwindled down. He discovered it was easier to
hold his temper than to drive those nails into the fence.

Finally the day came when the boy didn't lose his temper at all. He told his father about it and the father suggested that the boy now pull
out one nail for each day that he was able to hold his temper.

The days passed and the young boy was finally able to tell his father
that all the nails were gone. The father took his son by the hand and
led him to the fence. He said, "You have done well, my son, but look at
the holes in the fence. The fence will never be the same.

When you say things in anger, they leave a scar just like this one. You
can put a knife in a man and draw it out.

It won't matter how many times you say I'm sorry, the wound is still
there. " A verbal wound is as bad as a physical one.

Food for thought and to remember to watch what you say and who you say it to unless it is really meant.

If he took out all the nails, wouldn't it just be a rubble or timber on the ground?
