Words of Wisdom

At Costco a little while ago, I heard some of the best advice ever. Ever.

A young man at the check out was describing for his co-workers his new car, his first ever. They were suitably impressed and congratulatory. He said, "Now I gotta get a girl to go riding in it with me."

The checker is a man of Island heritage, possibly Samoan or somthing like that. His gorgeous brown eyes glow with a true love of life; his long, abundant black hair is always slicked back into a curly pony tail; his lilting voice draws you into what ever he might be saying. This man turned to the young man and said,

"You don't need a girl who wants you for your car. You don't need a girl who wants you for your appearance. Find a girl who wants you for what's inside you, for what's in your heart."

That young man will probably never receive better advice in a workplace.

Wonder if he'll follow it?
