It's More Than A Job


A young fella rushed into a service station and asked the manager if he 
had payphone. The manager nodded, "Sure, over there." The boy pushed in 
a couple of coins, dialed, and waited for an answer. Finally, someone 
came on the line. "Uh, sir," he said in a deep voice, "Could you use an 
honest, hard-working young man to work for you?" The station manager 
couldn't help overhearing the question. After a moment or two the boy 
said, "oh, you already have an honest, hard-working young man? Well, OK.
Thanks just the same."

With a broad smile stretched across his face, he hung up the phone and 
started back to his car, humming an obviously elated. "Hey, just a 
minute!" The station manager called after him. "I couldn't help but 
hear your conversation. Why are you so happy? I thought the guy said 
he already had somebody and didn't need you? "The young man smiled. 
"Well, you see, I am the honest, hard-working young man. I was just 
checking up on my job!"
