Everyone hears only what he understands.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
One of the hardest things for me to do these days is saying no to someone who asks for my help. In my case age has imposed limits on my ability to prerform so tasks are not as easy as they once were. So I prefer to say no rather than disappoint that comes from the inability to get the job done.
So my friends if I disappoint you someday please understand that I just do not want to let you down. I promise I will understand if you also need to say no on occasion.
Never judge others by their NO.
Once a bird was searching for a home to lay her eggs and get shelter in the coming rainy season. In her Search, she saw two trees and went to ask for shelter. When she asked the first tree. He refused to give her shelter.
With disappointment, she went to the second. And second, agreed she made her home and lay her eggs and then the rainy season arrives. The rain was so heavy that the first tree fell and was carried away by the flood.
The bird saw this and in a taunting way said: ” See, this is your karma, you didn’t offer me shelter, now God has given you the punishment.”
The tree smiled and said: ” I knew I’m not going to survive this rainy season that’s why I refused you. I didn’t want to risk your’s and your children’s lives. “ The bird got tears in her eyes. now she knew the reason and felt respect for the tree.
Moral of the Story:
We should not always consider someone’s NO as their arrogance. You don’t know the full picture. Respect other’s decisions whether it is in your favor or not.
We get so much involved in the problems that we forget to view the other person’s point. Without even trying to understand the motive, the reason, we make our own judgments. we should never judge others by their No. because we don’t know their story.
You don’t know what good is hidden for you behind it.
Any fool can criticize, condemn, and complain but it takes character and self control to be understanding and forgiving.
Andy Rooney’s tips for telemarketers
Three Little Words That Work !!
(1) The three little words are: “Hold On, Please…”
Saying this, while putting down your phone and walking off (instead of hanging-up immediately) would make each telemarketing call so much more time-consuming that boiler room sales would grind to a halt. Then when you eventually hear the phone company’s “beep-beep-beep” tone, you know it’s time to go back and hang up your handset, which has efficiently completed its task. These three little words will help eliminate telephone soliciting.
(2) Do you ever get those annoying phone calls with no one on the other end?
This is a telemarketing technique where a machine makes phone calls and records the time of day when a person answers the phone. This technique is used to determine the best time of day for a “real” sales person to call back and get someone at home. What you can do after answering, if you notice there is no one there, is to immediately start hitting your # button on the phone, 6 or 7 times, as quickly as possible. This confuses the machine that dialed the call and it kicks your number out of their system. Gosh, what a shame not to have your name in their system any longer !!!
(3) Junk Mail Help:
When you get “ads” enclosed with your phone or utility bill, return these “ads” with your payment. Let the sending companies throw their own junk mail away.
When you get those “pre-approved” letters in the mail for everything from credit cards to 2nd mortgages and similar type junk, do not throw away the return envelope. Most of these come with postage-paid return envelopes, right? It costs them more than the regular 37 cents postage “IF” and when they receive them back. It costs them nothing if you throw them away! The postage was around 50 cents before! the last increase and it is according to the weight. In that case, why not get rid of some of your other junk mail and put it in these cool little, postage-paid return envelopes.

Speaking of luck, she said: I was shopping with my husband at a local supermarket and suddenly couldn’t find him. “I’ve lost my husband!” I muttered slightly louder than was necessary.
Then I heard a woman’s voice from the next aisle: “Some people have all the luck.”
He said: A client brought a litter of golden retriever puppies to my veterinary clinic for inoculations and worming. As the look-alike pups squirmed over and under one another in their box, I realized it would be difficult to tell the treated ones from the rest. I turned on the water faucet, wet my fingers, and moistened each dog’s head when I had finished.
After the fourth puppy, I noticed my hitherto talkative client had grown silent. As I sprinkled the last pup’s head, the woman leaned forward and whispered, “I didn’t know they had to be baptized.”
You know you’re growing older when … You begin to realize that your parents were right, after all!
I’m in a hurry today. I have to answer the email I got from Mrs. Moobooro Nambito, who is the wife of a prominent politician in some African country. She just so happens to need help funneling tens of millions of dollars that her husband gave her to hide–right before the populace tore him to shreds because he stole all their money and resources.
Anyway, she needs help embezzling the funds to the States and is willing to pay handsomely anyone who lets her use their bank account. This is going to be the easiest money I ever made!
Frustration is trying to find your glasses without your glasses.
The other day, I had to make a call to the telephone company. Something was wrong with my bill. I dialed the number listed, and was astonished. I got the strangest recording. It said, “You have been connected to the correct department on the first try. This is against company policy. Please hang up and redial.”

When his eyes began to give him trouble, a man went to a Prague ophthalmologist. The doctor showed the patient the eye chart, displaying the letters CVKPNWXSCZ.
“Can you read that?” the doctor asked.
“Can I read it?” the Czech replied. “I dated his sister.”
The reality of the other person is not in what he reveals to you, but in what he cannot reveal to you. Therefore, if you would understand him, listen not to what he says but rather what he does not say.
