It pays to be a gentleman
It was 2001 and my boss had just fired me. Rather than get angry, I decided to chill and just go for a run. It was just sickening the way he did it. No warning and no reasons really. Just blew me off like a piece of garbage after eight years on the job.
My Mom had always said that being a good, solid man was worthwhile. While I was jogging that day I stopped at the water fountain. There was a line of people waiting because it was really hot. An older man behind me was really suffering. I decided to let him in ahead of me. He’s now my boss.
