The Truck Driver – Moral Story

One truck driver was doing his usual load delivery at a mental hospital, by parking his vehicle beside an open drain.
He discovered a flat tyre when he was about to return from the mental hospital. He jacked up the truck and removed the flat tyre to fix the spare tyre. When he was about to fix the spare tyre, he accidentally dropped all the 4 bolts in the open drain.
As he cannot fish out the bolts from the open drain, he started to panic as to what should be done.
Just then, a patient happened to walk past him and asked the driver asto why he was looking troubled.
The driver thought to himself, since there is nothing much he can do or this mental joker can, just to keep the bugging away, the truck driver informed the whole episode to the mental patient and gave a helpless look.
The patient just laughed at the truck driver and said “You just cannot even fix such a simple problem. No wonder you are destined to remain a truck driver for life”.
The truck driver was astonished to hear such a comment from a mental guy.
“Here is what you can do” said the mental guy…” take one bolt from each of the remaining 3 tyres / wheels and fix it on to this tyre. Then
drive down to the nearest workshop and replace the missing ones. Isn’t it simple my friend?”.
The truck driver was so impressed with this quick fix answer and asked the patient “How come you are so smart and intelligent and you are here at the mental hospital?”
The patient replied “My dear friend! I stay here because I am crazy but not stupid”.
No wonder, there are some people, who behave like the Truck Driver, thinking that others are just stupid.
So, guys, though you all are learned and wise, but, just watch out, there could be some CRAZY guys in our professional /personal lives, who could give us lot of quick fixes and brush our wisdom.
Moral of the story:
Just do not conclude that you know everything and do not judge people by mere looks/ attire / stature or academic background.

    Dude? Are you on a diet or what? I tried Orchid Fusion in Arlington. Groupon even had a special for them. The Mozz was douiciels. Everything else was worth the price. I didn’t try any of the specialty drinks or smoothies but I heard they are half price if you order them with a meal. Come on, you can expand to DFW Hole in the Wall, right? 🙂

    Hi,Sara. The truck driver really stupid how come remove the tires nuts beside the open drain hole? should take care and watch the area must be clear this is his mistake . Whin the crazy patient came and discuss what happen driver got nerves ,but he solved the probleme rite to take one nut from each wheel he is right till go to the nearest tire shope to install a new set. We could say the crazy man not necessarily to be stupid but the driver found real stupid did not use his mined well.Thanks for this history.

      It is a proven fact that ‘every priblem has seeds of solution in it’. Lives of all great men remind us secret of success is ‘CONCENTRATION’.
