A tourist visiting Texas really saw that Texan really live up to the saying that “Everything is big in Texas “. The airport was so big. The cab was so big compared to the Toyotas and Hondas used in his country. His hotel room was a suite with two bathrooms and two TVS.
During lunch time he went to the restaurant and it too was so big. He sat down and the waiter gave him a big menu. After reading the menu, he decided to order a piece of steak, an item Texas is famous for.
The waiter asked him, “Small, medium or big.” Since everything is big in Texas, he decided to order a medium size steak. When the steak was served, it was a piece of meat that is at least 20 oz so he told the waiter that he only ordered a medium size steak and not a big. The waiter said there was no mistake as their small is 12 oz, medium is 20 oz and big is 50 oz as everything is big in Texas. He was very happy as the price is also cheap.
After his meal, he decided to order a beer and again the waiter asked him, “Small, medium or big.” As he is not a good drinker he decided to have a small beer. When the beer came it was a big mug as everything is big in Texas. After the beer, he is a little tipsy and also had to go to washroom so he asked the waiter where the washroom is.
Waiter told him, “Straight ahead and 2nd door on the left.” After the customer has gone for some time, the waiter realized he made a mistake. The 2nd door on left is swimming pool and the 2nd door on right is the toilet. He rushed over to find out the tourist had already fallen into pool.
When the tourist saw the waiter he panicked and shouted, “Waiter, waiter, don’t flush the toilet. Don’t flush the toilet.” He thought the pool is a big toilet as everything is big in Texas.
I use this story to emphasis the importance in the direction we take in our life. Be your own boss or be an employee and get ready to be flush down the toilet. Eddy Chai
