An American teacher spent many years teaching in Vietnam and while he was there, one of the things that bothered him was that the men walked in front while the women walked behind. He always told his Vietnamese friends that in America, the women walked in front and that they too should adopt the “Ladies first policy.”
Nobody listened to him. He then returned to the US when the Vietnam War broke out.
After the war, he returned to Vietnam again to visit and to his surprise, all the women now walked in the front and the men behind. He was so happy thinking that finally he had succeeded in teaching all the Vietnamese men to adopt this Western culture.
He kept on boasting about his success and finally a Vietnamese friend told him, “ Teacher, we let our women now walk in front because those Viet Cong have planted so many landmines throughout the country.”
A story I use when I tell all downlines they must use products first before retailing.
