A short time later Mike came through the door handing his parcel to our dad just as I said, Ha Ha you had to go to the grocery store. I know more got the words out of my mouth when Mike looked at me holding something in his hand and replied, “Yeah, but look who got the Tootsie Roll.”
Our father was a sales manager at the time and used this story at many of his sales meetings. The lesson of course is that the one who goes the extra mile……………..gets the Tootsie Roll.
Glad I learned that lesson early.
What life lessons did you learn at an early age?
