  1. 1. 4 Wisdom From A Laugh 169 Retirement Finally it was time for the boss to retire from the company. On his last day of work, he ordered a farewell party for himself and insisted that every staff member attend the party. He had a big farewell card prepared and he told everyone, “I want each of you to express your good feelings about me by writing on the farewell card. I want to remember how all my staff members remember me.” After nearly all the staff members had written, the boss had a look at their wishes. Most of them had written the usual stuff like “All the best”, “We will miss you”, “The company will be different without you” etc The boss was not satisfied. He approached Cho Beh and told him, “Cho Beh, you have been working for me for the last 20 years. You have been the best worker. I am retiring now and I want you to write your honest feelings in my farewell card.” Cho Beh slowing took the pen and wrote in the card, “ Goodbye. The best news in 20 years for me.” Reflections * One should not think so highly of oneself. Being so focused on the Ego can bring much suffering. * Praise and blame, happiness and pain are inevitable. Be prepared to face them calmly.

The next day the dog arrived with a fresh note pinned to his collar: "We have seven children. The dog is trying trying to catch up on his sleep."
