Suffering the Rats: A missionary was assigned to some remote islands in the Pacific. After three months, he sent a fax to mission headquarters: "I’m being plagued by rats. What shall I do?" Soon a crate arrived, filled with rattraps. However, hardly a month later the missionary sent a second fax to headquarters: "The rats won’t take the Bait. What shall I do?" Not long after, a second crate arrived, filled with rat poison. However, hardly another month passed, when the missionary found it necessary to send a third fax to headquarters: "The rats won’t touch the poison. Do you have any other suggestions?" Soon he received another fax from mission headquarters: "We suggest you get used to the rats!”
