Nightstorm on Mancoat posted this little life lesson...
Learning lifes lessons aren't always around a group of old men ready to give the wisdom of the ages. Every man can give you a life lesson by sharing just a part of their life-even if you don't know them and are casually passing on through.
I had such a experience today. After eating lunch, I slowly headed back to work. As I got in the lobby area, I noticed it was just me and 2 other guys by the elevator. Both men appeared to be in their mid 30's to early 40's. One guy was down on his luck, and the other, a co-worker / friend.
As all 3 of us proceeded in the elavator. I press 6, while they are heading towards floor 4. The following phrase came from the victim, who had a very low sad pitched voice, almost as if he was depressed or helpless.
"You know you go out and earn a certain amount of money and when you stop making that much, they leave you for someone else".
Then the depressed man got off the elvator with his friend heading back to work.
It seemed this guy learned the hard way. Somehow, somewhere, he stopped producing; as soon as the money stopped flowing, his relationship ended.
Remember boys, it's all about the money.
That was thought provoking stuff...
