The Day My Boss Realized What He Was In For
Not long after I started my current job, the boss offered to take me out for lunch. On the way over to the restaurant, we drove past a homeless man. He was standing on the corner, holding a cardboard sign, and he had a scruffy dog next to him.
I turned to the boss and said, "I almost always give money to homeless people when I see them, but I wouldn't give any to that guy."
"Because he has that dog."
"Really?" he asked. "I thought you liked dogs."
"I do. But how hungry can that guy be if he hasn't even eaten his dog yet?"
And then the rest of the ride was pretty quiet.
