Life offers many opportunities to learn illustrated by this story of one truck driver who was doing his usual load delivery at a mental hospital, by parking his vehicle beside an open drain. He discovered a flat tyre when he was about to return from the mental hospital.He jacked up the truck and removed the flat tyre to fix the spare tyre. When he was about to fix the spare tyre, he accidentally dropped all the 4 bolts in the open drain. He was at sea and didn’t know what to do now.
Just then, one mental patient happened to walk past him and asked the driver what was the problem ? . The driver informed the whole episode to him and gave a helpless look. The patient just laughed at the truck driver and said you just cannot even fix such a simple problem? “No wonder you are destined to remain a truck driver for life”.
The truck driver was astonished to hear a simple solution from a mental guy. “Here is what you can do” said the mental guy… “take one bolt from each of the remaining 3 tyres / wheels and fix it on to this tyre. Then drive down to the nearest workshop and replace the missing ones. Isn’t it simple my friend”.
The truck driver was so impressed with this quick fix answer and asked the patient “How come you are so smart and intelligent and you are here at the mental hospital?” The patient replied “Hello friend! I stay here because I am crazy but not stupid”.
No wonder, there are some people, who behave like the Truck Driver, thinking that others are just stupid. So, guys, though you all are learned and wise, but, just watch out your life. There could be some guys in our professional / personal lives , who could give us lot of quick fixes and brush our wisdom.
