The Man In The Glass
When you get what you want in your struggle for self
And the world makes you king for a day
Just go to the mirror and look at yourself
And see what that man has to say.
For it isn’t your father, or mother, or wife
Whose judgment upon you must pass
The fellow whose verdict counts most in your life
Is the one staring back from the glass.
He’s the fellow to please – never mind all the rest
For he’s with you, clear to the end
And you’ve passed your most difficult, dangerous test
If the man in the glass is your friend.
You may fool the whole world down the pathway of years
And get pats on the back as you pass
But your final reward will be heartache and tears
If you’ve cheated the man in the glass.

A man runs into the vet’s office carrying his dog, screaming for help.
The vet rushes him back to an examination room and has him put his
dog down on the examination table. The vet examines the still, limp
body and after a few moments, tells the man that his dog, regrettably,
is dead. The man, clearly agitated and not willing to accept this,
demands a second opinion.
The vet goes into the back room and comes out with a cat and puts the
cat down next to the dog’s body. The cat sniffs the body, walks from head
to tail, poking and sniffing the dog’s body and finally looks at the vet and meows.
The vet looks at the man and says, “I’m sorry, but the cat thinks that you’re
dog is dead, too.” The man is still unwilling to accept that his dog is dead.
So the vet brings in a black Labrador retriever. The lab sniffs the body,
walks from head to tail, and finally looks at the vet and barks.
The vet looks at the man and says, “I’m sorry, but the lab thinks your dog is dead too.”
The man, finally resigned to the diagnosis, thanks the vet and asks how much he owes.
The vet answers, “$650.”
“$650 to tell me my dog is dead?” exclaims the man.
“Well,” the vet replies, “I would only have charged you $50 for my initial diagnosis.
The additional $600 was for the cat scan and lab tests.
