Lawyer - with a heart?

One afternoon a lawyer was riding in his limousine when he saw two men along the roadside eating grass.

Disturbed, he ordered his driver to stop and he got out to investigate.

He asked one man, 'Why are you eating grass?'

'We don't have any money for food,' the poor man replied. 'We have to eat grass.'

'Well, then, you can come with me to my house and I'll feed you,' the lawyer said.

'But sir, I have a wife and two children with me. They are over there, under that tree.'

'Bring them along,' the lawyer replied.

Turning to the other poor man he stated, 'You come with us, also.'

The second man, in a pitiful voice, then said, 'But sir, I also have a wife and SIX children with me!'

'Bring them all, as well,' the lawyer answered.

They all entered the car, which was no easy task, even for a car as large as the limousine was.

Once underway, one of the poor fellows turned to the lawyer and said, 'Sir, you are too kind.'

'Thank you for taking all of us with you.'

The lawyer replied, 'Glad to do it.

'You'll really love my place.

'The grass is almost a foot high'.

Puasa Si Miskin

Sekadar renungan, suatu peringatan buat diriku yang sering terlepas pandang. Aku telah menemui sebuah rumah yang usang. Rumah itu hanya berdindingkan buluh bertanggakan batang kelapa. Di serambi rumah itu ada beberapa anak kecil yang kelihatan lesu dan letih. Aku hampiri mereka lalu bertanya kepada yang paling tua antara mereka, seorang kakak yang berumur baru kira-kira 11 tahun:

"Mana emak? "

"Mak pergi menoreh," jawabnya.

"Mana bapak?"

"Bapak pergi kerja..."

"Habis tu adik yang kecil ini siapa yang jaga?" Di situ ada seorang bayi dalam lingkungan umur 5 bulan.

"Adik ini sayalah yang jaga." Jawab budak berkenaan.

"Awak ada berapa orang adik-beradik? "

"Sepuluh."

"Adik ni yang ke berapa?"

"Saya yang kelapan."

"Mana abang-abang kamu pergi?"

"Tolong emak menoreh."

"Adik puasa hari ini?"

"Sama je pakcik, puasa ke tidak. Kami ni makan sekali je sehari," jawabnya.

Mendengar kata-kata itu aku sungguh terharu.

Lalu aku bertanya lagi "Adik bersekolah di mana?"

"Saya tak sekolah. Emak bapak tak mampu".

"Bapak kerja apa?"

"Tangkap ikan kat sungai nak buat lauk bukak puasa ".

Budak itu memberi tahu, lebih baiklah bulan puasa berbanding bulan lain kerana pada bulan puasa mereka dapat makan kuih. Ada saja orang yang hantar. Aku berlalu dari situ dengan seribu-satu keinsafan. Kebetulan di simpang jalan ada orang menjual daging lembu tempatan. Aku beli satu kilo tulang lembu. Di kedai runcit pula, aku beli rempah sup dan sepuluh kilo beras untuk disedekahkan kepada keluarga itu. Bila saja aku beri barang-barang itu pada adiknya, dia melompat kegembiraan sambil menjerit, "Yeh yeh..! Kita dapat makan daging malam ni..!".

Aku bertanya kepada si kakak mengapa adiknya girang sangat. Dia memberitahu aku, sejak dari raya korban tahun lepas baru sekarang mereka berpeluang makan daging lembu sekali lagi. Seminggu kemudian aku datang lagi ke rumah itu. Bila mereka melihat aku datang, mereka girang menyambutku di pintu rumah. Kebetulan pada hari itu aku sempat berjumpa dengan ibu mereka. Sungguh menyedihkan cerita yang aku dengar: Anak yang berumur 4 tahun itu memberitahu padaku bahawa mereka sudah seminggu makan sup tulang yang aku berikan hari itu.

"Tiap-tiap hari mak buat sup, sedaplah Pakcik.."

Aku bertanya kepada emaknya macam mana dia lakukan hinggakan sup itu boleh tahan sampai satu minggu? Dia memberitahu padaku bahawa pada hari pertama dia merebus tulang itu, dia telah berpesan kepada anak-anaknya agar tidak membuangkan tulang yang telah dimakan. Dia kutip semula semua tulang-tulang itu dan merebusnya semula untuk dimakan pada hari berikutnya. Itulah yang dia lakukan setiap hari. Dia berkata "Kalau tidak dapat makan isi, hirup air rebusan tulang pun dah lebih dari cukup untuk anak-anak saya. Dia orang suka sangat."

Aku bertanya lagi "Upah menoreh berapa makcik dapat?"

"Cuma RM3.00 sehari."

"Ayahnya bekerja macam mana"

"Kalau dia dapat ikan itulah yang dibuat lauk setiap hari."

Rupa-rupanya aku terlupa bahawa aku sebenarnya hidup dalam keadaan mewah. Pernahkah anda menghirup air rebusan tulang yang direbus semula sepanjang hidup anda? Atau adakah anda buang saja tulang itu beserta daging-daging yang ada padanya kerana anda kata ianya "TAK SEDAP"? Mungkin kita sudah terbiasa hidup senang hinggakan kita lupa bahawa kalau pun kita susah, masih ramai lagi orang yang lebih susah dari kita.

Whiskers tertanya bagaimana mereka beraya?

A Well-Planned Retirement

From The London Times:

Outside England's Bristol Zoo there is a parking lot for 150 cars and 8 buses. For 25 years, its parking fees were managed by a very pleasant attendant. The fees were £1 for cars ($1.40), £5 for busses (about $7).

Then, one day, after 25 solid years of never missing a day of work, he just didn't show up; so the Zoo Management called the City Council and asked it to send them another parking agent.

The Council did some research and replied that the parking lot was the Zoo's own responsibility.

The Zoo advised the Council that the attendant was a City employee. The City Council responded that the lot attendant had never been on the City payroll.

Meanwhile, sitting in his villa somewhere on the coast of Spain (or some such scenario), is a man who'd apparently had a ticket machine installed completely on his own; and then had simply begun to show up every day, commencing to collect and keep the parking fees, estimated at about $560 per day -- for 25 years.

Assuming 7 days a week, this amounts to just over $7 million dollars!

The bald complainer

A man with a bald head and a wooden leg is invited to a Xmas fancy dress party. He doesn't know what to wear to hide his head and his wooden leg, so he writes to a fancy dress company to explain his problem.

A few days later he receives a parcel with a note: Dear Sir, Please find enclosed a Pirate's outfit. The spotted handkerchief will cover your bald head and with your wooden leg you will be just right as a Pirate. The man is offended that the outfit emphasizes his disability, so he writes a letter of complaint.

A week passes and he receives another parcel and note: Dear Sir, Sorry about the previous parcel. Please find enclosed a monk's habit. The long robe will cover your wooden leg and with your bald head you will really look the part.

The man is really incandescent with rage now, because the company has gone from emphasizing his wooden leg to drawing attention to his bald head. So he writes a really strong letter of complaint.

A few days later he gets a very small parcel from the company with the accompanying letter: Dear Sir, Please find enclosed a tin of Golden Syrup. We suggest you pour the tin of Golden Syrup over your bald head, stick your wooden leg up your arse and go as a toffee apple.

The Power of the Badge

DEA officer stops at a ranch in South Texas, and talks with an old rancher mending a fence.

He tells the rancher, "I need to inspect your ranch for illegally grown drugs.

"The old Rancher says, "Okay, but don't go in that field over there", as he points out the location.

The DEA officer verbally explodes saying, "Mister, I have the authority of the Federal Government behind me.

"He reaches into his back pants pocket, removes his badge and proudly flashes it at the old Rancher.

"Do you see this badge? It means I am allowed to go wherever I wish.... on any one's land. No questions asked or answers given. Have I made myself clear? Do you understand?"

The old rancher nods politely, apologizes, and goes about his chores.

A short time later, the old rancher hears loud screams and sees the DEA officer running for his life ... chased close behind by the rancher's 1,500 pound prize bull.

With every step the bull is gaining ground on the officer, and it seems likely that he'll get "Horned" before he reaches safety.

The officer is clearly terrified. The Rancher drops his fence tools, runs to the fence and yells at the top of his lungs.....

"Your badge, your badge. Show him your damn BADGE !"

Whiskers runs!

A speech we should read & share

This was a speech made by Pulitzer Prize-winning author, Anna Quindlen at the graduation ceremony of an American university where she was awarded an Honorary PhD.

Most brilliant, to the point speech to get all of us thinking.

"I'm a novelist. My work is human nature. Real life is all I know. Don't ever confuse the two, your life and your work. You will walk out of here this afternoon with only one thing that no one else has. There will be hundreds of people out there with your same degree: there will be thousands of people doing what you want to do for a living. But you will be the only person alive who has sole custody of your life. Your particular life. Your entire life. Not just your life at a desk or your life on a bus or in a car or at the computer. Not just the life of your mind, but the life of your heart. Not just your bank accounts but also your soul.

People don't talk about the soul very much anymore. It's so much easier to write a resume than to craft a spirit. But a resume is cold comfort on a winter's night, or when you're sad, or broke, or lonely, or when you've received your test results and they're not so good.
Here is my resume: I am a good mother to three children. I have tried never to let my work stand in the way of being a good parent. I no longer consider myself the centre of the universe. I show up. I listen. I try to laugh. I am a good friend to my husband. I have tried to make marriage vows mean what they say. I am a good friend to my friends and them to me.
Without them, there would be nothing to say to you today, because I would be a cardboard cut out. But I call them on the phone and I meet them for lunch. I would be rotten, at best mediocre, at my job if those other things were not true.

You cannot be really first rate at your work if your work is all you are. So here's what I wanted to tell you today: Get a life. A real life, not a manic pursuit of the next promotion, the bigger pay cheque, the larger house. Do you think you'd care so very much about those things if you blew an aneurysm one afternoon or found a lump in your breast?
Get a life in which you notice the smell of salt water pushing itself on a breeze at the seaside, a life in which you stop and watch how a red-tailed hawk circles over the water, or the way a baby scowls with concentration when she tries to pick up a sweet with her thumb and first finger.
Get a life in which you are not alone. Find people you love, and who love you. And remember that love is not leisure, it is work. Pick up the phone. Send an email. Write a letter. Get a life in which you are generous. And realize that life is the best thing ever, and that you have no business taking it for granted.. Care so deeply about its goodness that you want to spread it around. Take money you would have spent on beer and give it to charity. Work in a soup kitchen. Be a big brother or sister. All of you want to do well. But if you do not do good too, then doing well will never be enough.
It is so easy to waste our lives, our days, our hours, and our minutes. It is so easy to take for granted the colour of our kids' eyes, the way the melody in a symphony rises and falls and disappears and rises again. It is so easy to exist instead of to live.
I learned to live many years ago. I learned to love the journey, not the destination. I learned that it is not a dress rehearsal, and that today is the only guarantee you get. I learned to look at all the good in the world and try to give some of it back because I believed in it, completely and utterly. And I tried to do that, in part, by telling others what I had learned. By telling them this: Consider the lilies of the field. Look at the fuzz on a baby's ear. Read in the back yard with the sun on your face.
Learn to be happy. And think of life as a terminal illness, because if you do, you will live it with joy and passion as it ought to be lived".

Enhancing Relationships

Trust is a very important factor for all relationships. When trust is broken, it is the end of the relationship. Lack of trust leads to suspicion, suspicion generates anger, anger causes enmity and enmity may result in separation.

A telephone operator told me that one day she received a phone call. She answered, "Public Utilities Board." There was silence. She repeated, "PUB." There was still no answer. When she was going to cut off the line, she Heard a lady's voice, "Oh, so this is PUB. Sorry, I got the number from my Husband's pocket but I do not know whose number it is."

Without mutual trust, just imagine what will happen to the couple if the telephone operator answered with just "hello" instead of "PUB".

CREATING PERFECT RELATIONSHIPS?
A person visited the government matchmaker for marriage, SDU, and requested "I am looking for a spouse. Please help me to find a suitable one." The SDU officer said, "Your requirements, please." "Oh, good looking, polite, humorous , sporty, knowledgeable, good in singing and dancing. Willing to accompany me the whole day at home during my leisure hour, if I don't go out. Telling me interesting stories when I need companion for conversation and be silent when I want to rest." The officer listened carefully and replied, "I understand you need television."

There is a saying that a perfect match can only be found between a blind wife and a deaf husband, because the blind wife cannot see the faults of the husband and the deaf husband cannot hear the nagging of the wife. Many couples are blind and deaf at the courting stage and dream of perpetual perfect relationship. Unfortunately, when the excitement of love wears off, they wake up and discover that marriage is not a bed of roses. The nightmare begins.

NO OVERPOWERING
Many relationships fail because one party tries to overpower another, or demands too much. People in love tend to think that love will conquer all and their spouses will change the bad habits after marriage. Actually, this is not the case. There is a Chinese saying which carries the meaning that "It is easier to reshape a mountain or a river than a person's character."

It is not easy to change. Thus, having high expectation on changing the spouse character will cause disappointment and unpleasantness.

It would be less painful to change ourselves and lower our expectations.

RIGHT SPEECH
There is a Chinese saying which carries the meaning that "A speech will either prosper or ruin a nation." Many relationships break off because of wrong speech. When a couple is too close with each other,we always forget mutual respect and courtesy. We may say anything without considering if it would hurt the other party.

A friend and her millionaire husband visited their construction site. A worker who wore a helmet saw her and shouted, "Hi, Emily! Remember me? We used to date in the secondary school." On the way home, her millionaire husband teased her, "Luckily you married me. Otherwise you will be the wife of a construction worker." She answered, "You should appreciate that you married me. Otherwise, he will be the millionaire and not you."

Frequently exchanging these remarks plants the seed for a bad relationship. It's like a broken egg - cannot be reversed.

PERSONAL PERCEPTION
Different people have different perceptions. One man's meat could be another man's poison. A couple bought a donkey from the market. On the way home, a boy commented, "Very stupid. Why neither of them ride on the donkey?"Upon hearing that, the husband let the wife ride on the donkey. He walked besides them. Later, an old man saw it and commented, "The husband is the head of family. How can the wife ride on the donkey while the husband is on foot?" Hearing this, the wife quickly got down and let the husband ride on the donkey.

Further on the way home, they met an old Lady. She commented, "How can the man ride on the donkey but let the wife walk. He is no gentleman."

The husband thus quickly asked the wife to join him on the donkey. Then, they met a young man. He commented, "Poor donkey, how can you hold up the weight of two persons. They are cruel to you." Hearing that, the husband and wife immediately climbed down from the donkey and carried it on their shoulders.

It seems to be the only choice left. Later, on a narrow bridge, the donkey was frightened and struggled. They lost their balance and fell into the river. You can never have everyone praise you, nor will everyone condemn you. Never in the past, not at present, and never will be in the future.

Thus, do not be too bothered by others words if our conscience is clear.

BE PATIENT
This is a true story which happened in the States. A man came out of his home to admire his new truck. To his puzzlement, his three-year-old son was happily hammering dents into the shiny paint of the truck. The man ran to his son, knocked him away, hammered the little boy's hands into pulp as punishment. When the father calmed down, he rushed his son to the hospital.

Although the doctor tried desperately to save the crushed bones, he finally had to amputate the fingers from both the boy's hands. When the boy woke up from the surgery & saw his bandaged stubs, he innocently said, "Daddy, I'm sorry about your truck." Then he asked, "But when are my fingers going to grow back?" The father went home & committed suicide.

Think about this story the next time someone steps on your feet or you wish to take revenge. Think first before you lose your patience with someone you love. Trucks can be repaired. Broken bones and feelings often can't. Too often we fail to recognize the difference between the person and the performance. We forget that forgiveness is greater than revenge.

People make mistakes. We are allowed to make mistakes. But the actions we take while in a rage will haunt us forever.

Whiskers will always listen to good advice.
