I Hate Baloney

You may have read about the man, a construction worker who took a sandwich out of his lunch bag, looked at it and threw it on the ground, yelling, "Baloney again! I hate baloney." A coworker said, "If you hate baloney so much, just ask your wife to make you something else." The man replied, "That's the problem. My wife didn't make the sandwich. I did."

Whether this story is true or not, doesn't really matter. It's a great parable.

As Michael Josephson in Character Counts said, "Lots of people continually make their own baloney sandwiches and then act as victims when it's time to eat them. It's like the man who killed his parents and had the audacity to demand mercy because he was an orphan."
