Recently heard a story of a governor from Massachusetts who was running for president. This was many years ago, can’t even remember the man’s name. But after an especially long day on the campaign trail, a day in which he was so busy he had time for neither breakfast nor lunch, he was attending a picnic event for his candidacy. A rule at the picnic was that there was enough food for only one piece of chicken per person. He went through the line, enjoyed his chicken, but was still hungry. He wasn’t a man to take advantage of his position, but today he thought was the time to do it. So he went back through line and the lady serving refused him a second piece of chicken. He said, “Do you realize who I am. I am the governor of this state. I think that entitles me to a second piece of chicken.” The lady calmly replied, “Do you know who I am? I am the lady in charge of the chicken.”
