City vs Country

  1. Once upon a time there was a shepherd tending his sheep at the edge of a country road. A brand new Jeep Grand Cherokee screeched to a halt next to him.

    The driver, a young man dressed in a Briani suit, Cerutti shoes, Ray-Ban sunglasses, Jovial Swiss wrist watch,and a Bhs tie got out and asked the shepherd, "If I can guess how many sheep you have, will you give me one of them?" The shepherd looked at the young man, then looked at the sprawling field of sheep and said, "Okay."

    The young man parked the SUV, connected his notebook and wireless modem, entered a NASA site, scanned the ground using his GPS, opened a database and 60 Excel tables filled with algorithms, then printed a 150 page report on his high tech mini printer.

    He then turned to the shepherd and said, "You have exactly 1,586 sheep here." The shepherd answered, "That's correct! You can have your sheep." The young man took one of the animals and put it in the back of his vehicle.

    The shepherd looked at him and asked, "Now, if I guess your profession, will you pay me back in kind?" The young man answered, "Sure."

    The shepherd said, "You are a consultant." "Exactly! How did you know?" asked the young man. "Very simple," answered the shepherd. "First, you came here without being called. Second, you charged me a fee to tell me something I already knew. Third, you don't understand anything about my business - and I'd really like to have my dog back."
