A little boy went into a drug store, reached for a soda carton and
pulled it over to the telephone.
He climbed onto the carton so that he could reach the buttons on the
phone and proceeded to punch in seven digits.
The store-owner observed and listened to the conversation:
The boy asked, "Lady, Can you give me the job of cutting your lawn?
The woman replied, "I already have someone to cut my lawn."
"Lady, I will cut your lawn for half the price of the person who cuts
your lawn now." replied boy.
The woman responded that she was very satisfied with the person who was
presently cutting her lawn.
The little boy found more perseverance and offered, "Lady, I'll even
sweep your curb and your sidewalk, so on Sunday you will have the
prettiest lawn in all of North Palm beach,Florida."
Again the woman answered in the negative. With a smile on his face, the
little boy replaced the receiver.
The store-owner, who was listening to all this, walked over to the boy
"Son... I like your attitude; I like that positive spirit and would like
to offer you a job."
The little boy replied,
*"No thanks, I was just checking my performance and the job I already have.*
*I am the one who is working for that lady, I was talking to !"*
_Are we also so sure about our self-appraisal_.....???
