(This is an oldie that most of you have probably heard before. Thanks for your indulgence. Today, I think I came in contact with just about every driver who has ever been called an asshole at one time or another. They scored some more points today.)
Who Is The Boss?
When the body was first made, all the parts wanted to be in charge. The brain said, "Since I control everything and do all the thinking, I should be the boss."
....The feet said, "Since I carry man where he wants to go and get him into position to do what the brain wants, then I should be the boss."
....The hands said, "Since I must do all the work and earn all the money to keep the rest of you going, I should be the boss."
....The eyes said, "Since it is I who enables man to see where he is going and what he is doing, it can only be me who should be the boss."
....So it went with the heart, the lungs and all the other parts of the body, each giving a reason why they should be the boss.
....Finally, the asshole spoke up and said it was going to be the boss. All the other parts laughed and laughed at the idea of an asshole being the boss. The asshole got so angry that it blocked himself off refusing to function. Soon, the brain was feverish and could barely think. The feet felt like lead weights and was almost too weak to drag the body anywhere. The eyes grew bleary. The hands hung loosely at the sides of the body.
....They all pleaded with the brain to relent and let the asshole be declared the boss. So it happened, and to this day, all the body parts do all the work. The asshole just bossed and passed out a lot of crap.
The Moral: You don't have to be a brain to be a boss, just an asshole. No matter how well things are going, it can be shut down by a single asshole.
