This Time It’ll Be Different
There are two friends and one of them is a traveling salesman who has to go out on the road every two or three weeks and sometimes he’s even gone for 3 months at a time. After one of these lengthy trips, he comes back and he drives back into his little city, and while driving he sees a sign over a store that says “Custom cabinets by Curt.” “That’s Curt’s place. Custom cabinets? What in the heck’s going on?” he thinks to himself.
So he stops the car and he walks in and says, “Curt. Since when did you become a maker of custom cabinets?”
Curt looks at him and says, “Well, you know. I did try for a while making custom chairs, as you know when you left, but it just didn’t work out so well.”
“Well why not, Curt? Didn’t have any business?”
Curt says, “Well, I guess you can say that.”
“Well, what do you mean ‘I guess?'”
“I discovered I don’t have any woodworking skills.
His friend slaps himself on the forehead and says, “But Curt. To build custom cabinets takes woodworking skills.”
Curt looks at his friend like he’s stupid, and he says, “Yeah. But this time I’m hoping that things will be different.”
