Another Story of the Day:
“Can I count on you to be there, no matter what?” she said.
I said, “No.”
She said, “What kind of friend are you?”
I said, “The kind who won’t lie to you any time you want.”
I think she kept me around as a curiosity after that.
This made me laugh. Honesty really does make you a “curiosity”. I remember one time I went to Home Depot and bought some work gloves. I thought I was buying a pack of about 20 pair. Turns out it was a bag of gloves that needed to be hung up on the shelf. So they were priced individually. When the woman scanned it the price came up to $4.98. This was for a whole bag of work gloves. When I got home I realized that she had made a mistake. When I took them back they looked at me like I was a circus freak.
How ’bout you? Ever gotten that “you must be crazy” look for being honest?
