An Old Man Once Said to Me...
.................................................
Erasers are made for people that make mistakes.


I replied
Erasers are made for people that wish to correct mistakes.

So I guess it's just ATTITUDE that matters.

Do you have any sayings you wish to share? If so feel free to add them in this thread

Great leaders don't tell you what to do, They show you how it is done. ;-)

hahaha

many years ago, when I was young & innocent :-D...... (stop laughing) I visited the US........ went to a stationery store, couldn't find what I was looking for, so I asked at the counter.......

"Where can I find rubbers please?"

Response? "I suggest you try the drugstore ma'am"

I had no idea what she meant

I told friends later, thinking how silly it was, and they all howled laughing

What made her think I was looking in a stationery store for c*nd*ms?? :-D
