NEVER TAKE ANYONE FOR GRANTED

 

The legendary Speaker of the House, Thomas P.”Tip” O’Neal, once made the mistake of taking a voter for granted. On Election Day, a neighbor named Mrs. O’Brien said to Tip after leaving the polls, “Tip, I voted for you today even though you didn’t ask.”  The Speaker was surprised.  “Mrs. O’Brien,” he said.  “I’ve known you all my life.  When I was a kid I took out your garbage, mowed your law, and shoveled snow for you.  I didn’t think I had to ask for your vote.”  “Tip,” she said in a motherly way, “It’s nice to be asked.”  Everyone likes to feel appreciated.
