Life is What You Make of It.

I have always heard that life is what you make of it. It reminds me of this old tale.

A man drove into a new town that he was thinking of moving to and asked the man at the gas station what kind of people were in the town. Well the attendant said what kind of people were in the town you came from. The visitor preceded to tell him that the people were stuck up and rude and stingy and unfriendly.

Well said the attendant, you going to find that they are the same way here.

As the man filled up his tank with gas another visitor drove in and asked the same question.

Without suprise the attendant asked him again what type of people were there where he was coming from. Well the visitor said, they are kind, considerate, friendly. They are some of the nicest folks living there. I hate to leave.

Well said the attendant you are going to find the same type of people here.

Well the other guy heard what he said and immediately began to yell at him. There you are, I have already found a liar here. You either lied to me or him.

And the point is......................
