A salesman breaks down on a remote country lane, a farmer in the adjacent field comes over and they discover that they are “Brothers”. The salesman is concerned as he has an important appointment in the local town : “Don’t worry says the farmer you can use my car, I will call a friend and get the car repaired while you go to the appointment”

Off goes the salesman and a couple of hours later he returns, but unfortunately the car is awaiting a part which won’t arrive until the next morning.

“It’s not a problem,” says the Farmer, “use my telephone and re-schedule your first appointment tomorrow, stay with us tonight and I’ll see that the car is done first thing.

The farmers’ wife prepares a wonderful meal and they share a glass of fine single malt during an excellent evening. The salesman sleeps soundly and when he awakens, there is his car, repaired and ready to go.

After a full English breakfast, the salesman thanks them both for the hospitality. As he and the farmer walk to his car, he turns and asks “my brother, thank you so much, but I have to ask, did you help me because I am a brother AphiO?”

“No” was the reply, “I helped you because I am an AphiO”

Let us all reflect on this one and remember always our lecture…Forced Kindness Deserves No Thanks, Willingness To Serve Does Not Wait Until It Is Asked For!!!
