SCHINDLER SEZ: THE GUILT TRIP & WISE WORD

Details
Text Size:

The difference between a hotel and a motel is...a hotel can charge more.

The Guilt Trip
Every December, my old friend, Mark, who happens to be Jewish, gives me a day planner, which I use to keep track of my daily appointments. Late this past December, when he still hadn't given me one, I sent him the following email.

Mark,
My second best friend in the entire world forgot me this year. I'm wounded! Even though I'm among the uncircumcised, each year you send me a day planner for Hanukkah. This year the only thing I got was the Bronx cheer. Woe is me. Maybe you didn't know my brother-in-law was Jewish. Salaam.
Sincerely,
Your forgotten friend,
Jim Schindler
Mark answered my email with a quick, "I've got one for you."
'Damn,' I thought, 'laying the old Jewish mother's guilt trip on him really worked.'

Wise Words
He who throws dirt...loses ground.
