Do you know those stories that usually ends with moral lessons? I always remember one of Aesop’s Fables about the fox and the bunch of grapes. The fox was jumping and jumping to grab the grapes but after a few times, he quit and said the grapes might be sour anyway. So the moral of the story is that “expressing anger and frustration at having failed to get something is like being a sore loser”. Here are a couple of stories with moral lessons too – just a little twisted.
The Exposed Wife
Just finishing her bath, a woman quickly rushed down to answer her doorbell, wrapped only in a skimpy towel. She opened the door and saw that it was Todd, their neighbour. Seeing her in the towel, Todd says, “I’ll give you five hundred bucks to drop that towel.” So she dropped the towel and takes the money. The woman went back upstairs and said to her husband, “That was Todd.” “Oh Great!” exclaims the husband, “did he say anything about the five hundred he owes me?”
Moral of the story:
Share critical information with your stakeholders in a timely manner to prevent undue exposure.
