A Story From Our Book Leading Narratives

Answer The Tough Questions Little Billy asks his mother her age. She replies, “Gentlemen don’t ask ladies that question.” Billy then asks his mother how much she weighs. Again his mother replies, “Gentlemen don’t ask ladies that question.” The boy then asks, “Why did Daddy leave you?” To this, the mother says, “You shouldn’t ask that,” and sends him to his room. On the way, Billy trips over his mother’s purse. When he picks it up, her driver’s license falls out. Billy runs back into the room. “I know all about you now. You are 42 years old, weigh 138 pounds and Daddy left you because you got an ‘F’ in sex!” Moral--Sometimes it best to answer the tough questions truthfully to keep others from making up their own answers. ​Leading Narratives:  The perfect collection of stories, jokes and wits of wisdom for leaders By Dan Spainhour Paperback 6 x 9; 124 pages $24.95 ​Buy Now Instant Download $19.95 Get both the book and the download  $34.95 I really enjoyed your book, it came at a time we
