the zen master is visiting new york city from tibet. he goes up 2 a hot dog vendor & says, "make me 1 w everything." the hot dog vendor fixes a hot dog & hands it to the zen master, who pays with a $20 bill. the vendor puts the bill n the cash box & closes it. "where's my change?" asks the zen master. the vendor responds, "change must come from within, u shld know that." a school teacher njured his back & had 2 wear a plaster cast around the upper part of his body. it fit under his shirt & was not noticeable at all. on the 1st day of the term, still w the cast under his shirt, he found himself assigned 2 the toughest students n school. walking confidently n2 the rowdy classroom, he opened the window as wide as possible & then busied himself w desk work. when a strong breeze made his tie flap, he coughed loudly & then took the desk stapler & stapled the tie to his chest. discipline was not a problem from that day forth.
