Two young men joined a wholesale company together just after graduation. One was fair while the other one was dark in complexion. They worked very hard.
Few years after, the boss promoted the dark one to sales executive while the fair one maintained the sales rep.

 One day the fair guy could not just take it anymore to remain a salesman and tender resignation to the boss,  complaining that the boss did not value hard working staff, but only promoted those who flattered him.

The boss quite knew that he worked very hard for the years, but in order to help him realize the difference between him and dark colleague, the boss asked the fair sales man to do the following. “Go and find out anyone selling water melon in the market?”  he quickly ran the errand and came back to tell the boss that he saw one. The boss asked how much per kg?

  He ran back to the market to ask and returned to inform boss that it's sold for $12 per kg.

The boss told him to wait and see,while he sent the dark guy the same errand. The dark guy quickly went, returned and said, “boss, there was only one person selling water melon. $12 per kg, $100 for 10 kg, he has inventory of 340 melons. On the table 58 melons, every melon weighs about 15 kg, bought from the South two days ago, they are fresh, red and of good quality.”
The fair guy was very impressed and realized the difference between himself and his  dark colleague . He withdrew his  resignation letter  and  learn from his co-worker.

 How thoughtful in-depth are you?
Never hope for it more than you work for it
