Business Management

Asking dumb questions is better than giving dumb answers.

Jeff, an 8-year old boy ran into the living room where his parents were watching TV. “Dad, where did I come from?”

The boy’s mother cleared her throat and excused herself to let the father answer this long-feared question. The father cleared his throat and went through a long-winded and careful explanation of how children are born.

When he was finally through, the little boy commented: “That’s OK Dad; but my friend Jenny down the neighborhood store says she comes from Cebu, and I just wanted to know where I came from.”
