Helping Your Fellow Man

A kind-hearted fellow was walking through Central Park in New York and was astonished to see an old man, fishing rod in hand, standing over a beautiful bed of lillies.

“Tch Tch!” said the passerby to himself. “What a sad sight. That poor old man is fishing over a bed of flowers. I’ll see if I can help.” So the kind fellow walked up to the old man and asked, “What are you doing, my friend?”

“Fishin’, sir.”

“Fishin’, eh. Well how would you like to come have a nice meal with me?”

The old man stood put his rod away and followed the kind stranger to a restaurant. He ordered a large steak and a bottle of fine wine.

His host, the kind fellow, felt good about helping the old man, and he asked, “Tell me, old friend, how many did you catch today?”

The old fellow finished chewing the piece of steak in his mouth, took a long sip of the wine and replied, “You are the third today, sir!”
