A man stopped by the local jewelry store every morning on his way to work so he could set his watch by the clock in the jeweler's window. After two years the owner of the jewelry store stepped out one morning to ask the man if he was thinking about buying the clock in his window. "No," the man said, almost apologetically, you see, I'm the supervisor at the plant down the street and I set my watch by the clock in your window so I know when to sound the noon whistle so all my workers know when to take their lunch break.
The jeweler shook his head in ironic disbelief saying, "I've been setting that clock in my window by the noonday whistle for two years." In the land of the blind, the one eyed man rules; just a little enlightenmentâ€¦ can be great power.
