It's easy to dismiss someone because of something they lack. Instead of thinking a person or animal is less than due to an abnormality, people should try to be more understanding.


One day, a farmer was setting up a sign for some puppies he had to sell. He began nailing the sign to a post on the edge of his yard. On the last nail, he felt someone tugging his overalls.

He looked down to see a bright-eyed little boy watching him. "Mister," said the boy, "I'd like to buy one of your puppies please."


The farmer responded, "Well, these puppies come from fine parents and cost quite some money. He wiped some sweat off the back of his neck.

The boy lowered his head for a moment. Then, he reached into his back pocket and pulled out a handful of change.

He raised it up for the farmer to see. "I've got 41 cents here. Is that enough just to take a look?" "Sure," replied the farmer.


With that, the man let out a long whistle. "Here, Fluffly!" he called out.

Immediately, Fluffy the dog ran out from her dog house and down the ramp to where the man and the boy were standing.

Behind here ran four little balls of fur. The little boy put his face right up to the chain-link fence and his eyes sparkled with delight.


As the dogs approached the barrier, the little boy noticed something in the corner of his eye where the doghouse was.

Slowly, another ball of fur appeared. This one was smaller than the rest, but it slid down the ramp.

Then, somewhat awkwardly, the tiny pup hobbled toward its siblings, looking intent on catching up.

"I want that one," the boy said as he pointed to the last pup. The farmre knelt to the boy's level and said, "Son, you don't want that puppy.

"He'll never be able to run and play with you like the other ones."

Upon hearing that, the little boy took a step back from the fence, bent down, and started to roll up a leg of his trousers.

He revealed a steel brace underneath, going from both sides of the leg and then finishing at a specially-made shoe.


The little boy looked up at the farmer again and said, "You see, mister. I don't run too well either and he'll need someone who understands."

There are a lot of people in the world who just need someone who understands.


One day, an elderly couple went to have breakfast at a restaurant. They wanted the special for $2.99 which was two eggs, a side of bacon, hash browns, and toast.

"It sounds quite good," the older woman told the waitress, "except I don't want the eggs."


"In that case, I'll have to charge you $3.49 because you'd be ordering a la carte," replied the server.

"So what you're saying is, I'd have to pay for NOT taking the eggs?" the woman asked incredulously.

"Yep!" said the waitress, unbothered by the elderly woman's reaction.

"I'll take the special, then," the woman said.

"How do you want your eggs?" asked the waitress.

"Raw and in the shell," said the woman.

She took the eggs on her way out and proceeded to bake a cake when she got home.

One night, three men sat in a bar talking about their level of control over their wives. The first two men bragged for a long time about how they could pretty much get their wives to do anything.

After a while, they realized the third man was silent. "What about you?" they asked him.

The third man said, "Last night, my wife came to me on her hands and knees, man."

The first two men were highly impressed. They asked: "What happened after?"

"She told me to come out from under the bed and fight like a man."
