A Problem Shared

alien-29939_640

Ron had this annoying habit of leaving you with his problems. As we sat drinking coffee he said, “Peter, I’ve got this little problem. Wondered if you might help?” With that he took the problem out of his pocket. It looked innocent enough, its large eye staring up at me, but I knew it wouldn’t stay like that. Small problems had a tendency to become big problems and take over your life. I had to be firm, “Sorry Ron, normally I’d love to help, but I’ve enough problems of my own. You’ll have to find someone else to take it.”
