So my mom always forwards me funny videos and texts – its sort of her thing. It is usually a health related topic, or some new recipe, but sometimes it is just a funny story or a life lesson. Here was today’s story which definitely made me chuckle. I don’t have a clue if its a true story, btw, actually I’m pretty sure it isn’t. Hope you enjoy!
When Mahathma Gandhi was studying law at the University College, London, a professor, whose last name was Peters, disliked him intensely.
One day, Mr. Peters was having lunch at the dining room when Ghandi came along with his tray & sat next to the professor.
The professor said,
“Mr Ghandi, you do not understand, a pig & a bird do not sit together to eat.”
Ghandji looked at him as a parent would a rude child & calmly replied,
“You do not worry professor. I’ll fly away,”
and he went and sat at another table.
Mr. Peters, reddened with rage, decided to take revenge.
The next day in Class he posed the following question:
“Mr. Ghandi, if you were walking down the street and found a package, and within was a bag of wisdom & another bag with money, which one would you take ?”
Without hesitating, Ghandi responded, “The one with the money, of course.”
Mr. Peters , smiling sarcastically said,
“I, in your place, would have taken the wisdom.”
Mahathma Gandhi shrugged & responded, “Each one takes what he doesn’t have.”
Mr. Peters, by this time was fit to be tied. So great was his anger that he wrote on Mahathma Ghandi’s exam sheet the word “IDIOT”
and gave it to Ghandi
Ghandi took the exam sheet & sat down at his desk trying very hard to remain calm while he contemplated his next move.
A few minutes later, Mahathma Ghandhi got up, went to the professor & told him in a dignified polite tone,
“Mr. Peters, you signed the sheet, but you did not give me a grade.”
In other news, pregnancy is going well so far, not much time left but I’m getting bigger every day. I have been lucky to not have any major issues this trimester, and besides getting no sleep I really have no complaints. Just ready to meet the little babe finally! This time will be so different for me, as my career life has completely changed – I won’t have to go straight back to work and I will have a lot more time to spend with her than I did with Adam. I remember crying every day for the first week at work when I had to leave Adam at daycare at just three months old. After that I was just miserable at work, but I eventually got used to the routine so it wasn’t unbearable after a while. It was then I started this blog and at the time, I had no idea this lifestyle was even possible. Something just made me do it! It just reinforces my belief that where there’s a will, there’s a way!
