Buddha nodded in thought and sat for an hour…and another…by the time that three hours had passed he was nearly at his wits end.
The Buddha looked at the man, smiles, and says, “You are the Buddha.”
The rich man was disgusted. He spat upon the ground.
To the Buddha he said, “You are a pig!”
The Buddha nodded.
“Buddha sees Buddha; pig sees pig.”
In a similar vein, this morning I got on the elevator with a woman who works in my office and a random delivery man.
The man said, “You shucked?”
In this story, I’m the one that is perplexed.
He repeated, “You shucked? Something shucked you in morning?”
I shrugged, helpless to understand his question.
“Your hair…it’s shucked.”
He made a “scared” face and I realized that he’s referring to my Mohawk.
“No. I did this on purpose.”
He got off laughing and it dawned on me.
“Shocked,” I said to the other passenger.
“He was saying ‘shocked’!”
“Yeah. What a douche-bag.”
“Really? I thought he was being friendly.”
She said nothing out loud in response, but her face clearly said, “You’re a douche-bag, too!”
Moral of the story:
Friend sees friend; douche-bag sees douche-bag.
