The Attorney and the Fisherman

A hard-driving corporate attorney saw a fisherman he knew from church one afternoon, legs dangling off the pier as he helped his two young sons catch crabs. “Why aren’t you out there fishing?” he asked.

“Because I’ve caught enough fish for today.”

“Why don’t you catch more fish than you need?”

“What would I do with them?” asked the fisherman.

“You could earn more money and buy a better boat so you could go deeper and catch more fish. Then you could buy a fleet of boats. Soon you’d be rich like me.”

“What would I do then?”

“You could sit down and enjoy life.”

“What do you think I’m doing now?”
