My apologies for being off the radar for a while on our blogging. Business obligations have kept me totally distracted when it comes to spending some quality time with the readers and followers of my blog..
Well… I’m back.
To celebrate our less that illustrious return, we will be offering a total out of character morning chuckle about a man with bad debt.
A man had been in business for many years and his business was going down the drain and was full of debt. He was seriously contemplating suicide and he didn’t know what to do. So he went to his Priest to seek advice.
He told the Priest about all of his problems in business and asked the Priest what he should do. The Priest said “Take a beach chair and a bible and put them in your car and drive down to the edge of the ocean. Go to the water’s edge. Take the beach chair out of the car, sit on it and take the Bible out and open it up. The wind will rifle the pages for a while and eventually the Bible will stay open at a particular page. Read the Bible and it will tell you what to do.”
The man did as he is told. He placed a beach chair and a Bible in his car and drove down to the beach. He sat on the chair at the water’s edge and opened the Bible. The wind rifled the pages of the Bible and then stopped at a particular page. He looked down at the Bible and knew immediately what he had to do.
Three months later the man and his family came back to see the Priest. The man was wearing a $1,000 Italian suit, his wife was all decked out with a full-length mink coat and the child was dressed in beautiful silk.
The man handed the Priest a thick envelope full of money and told him that he wants to donate this money to the church in order to thank the Priest for his wonderful advice.
The Priest was delighted. He recognizes the man and asked him what advice in the bible brought this good fortune to him.
The man replies: “Chapter 11.”
[P.S. For those unfamiliar with American Law, Chapter 11 refers to declaring bankruptcy and removing all of your debt. In modern years, some people have developed the practice as a strategic financial decision.]
