Earl and Bubba are quietly sitting in a boat fishing, chewing tobacco and drinking beer when suddenly Bubba says, "Think I'm gonna divorce the wife - she ain't spoke to me in over 2 months."
Earl spits overboard, takes a long, slow sip of beer and says, "Better think it over.............women like that are hard to find."
A friend told me yesterday, "I used to ask you if you heard about the latest engagement. Now I'm asking you if you heard about the latest divorce."
Another friend told me, "in every divorce there are three stories; his story, her story and the truth."
The importance of not jumping to conclusions and rushing to judgement really hit home this evening as I read a story at the Yeshiva World about a man who was almost arrested because police thought that he was abducting a woman. Apparently, she and her husband were in a car and her eyes were covered. The police thought that she was being kidnapped and that the driver of the car had blindfolded her. It turned out that the husband was driving his wife home from eye surgery.
So let's remember this story next time we hear someone assign blame. It's his fault. No it's her fault. The truth might be somewhere in between. We may never discover the truth. And, most of the time, it's none of our business.
