Pay Attention to The Source of Problem

One fine day, a bus driver went to the bus garage, started 
his bus and drove off along the route. No problems for the 
first few stops, a few people got on, a few got off and 
things went generally well.

At the next stop, however, a big hulk of a guy got on. 
Six feet eight, built like a wrestler, arms hanging down to 
the ground. He glared at the driver and said, "Big John 
doesn't pay!" and sat down at the back.

The driver was five feet three, thin and basically meek... 
Naturally, he did not argue with Big John, but he was not 
happy about it.

The next day the same thing happened - Big John got on 
again, said "Big John doesn't pay!" and sat down. And 
the next day and the one after that and so forth.

This irritated the bus driver, who started losing sleep 
over the way Big John was taking advantage of his size. 
Finally he could stand it no longer. He signed up for 
body building program, Karate, Judo and all that good stuff.

By the end of the summer, he had become quite strong; 
So on the next Monday, when Big John got on the bus and 
said, "Big John doesn't pay!" the driver stood up, glared 
back and screamed, "And why not?"

With a surprised look on his face, Big John replied, 
"Big John has a Bus pass."

Moral of the story: First be sure and pay more attention 
to source of problems before working hard to solve one.
